re: Rice buckets/fresh approach helped LSU sophomore Daniel Cabrera rediscover his swing - jrbjr
I remember reading a Sports Illustrated article in the 1980s (I’m so old that I read actual magazines) about Steve Carlton of the Phillies, who was into martial arts, using a rice vat for arm strength exercises. Maybe other pitchers picked up on it after that....

re: LSU 6 @ Arkansas 11 Final - SECN+ - jrbjr
Arky’s fan base reminds me of ours in the 1990s. A program that rose to prominence and championship contention. They should have one championship, but for a misplayed pop up. They have a great game day atmosphere. Unlike ours which has jumped the proverbial shark. I don’t mind them celebrating. I ye...

re: What the hell has happened to LSU baseball!?!?! - jrbjr
I feel the same way. I’m an old fart who used to go to games before Bertman. No body but the players patents and girl friends and me, walking my infant son into Alex Box. When Bertman was hired, we bought a family season pass for $35. We saw LSU grow into the premier NCAA baseball program. It doesn...

re: CPM giving Bianco the business for the mid AB pinch runner? - jrbjr
I agree with you that he must have sent in the PR to break the pitcher’s rhythm, which wasn’t good at the time. But I don’t think that’s strategic. It’s a bush league tactic. I guess it depends on how many fast PR they have. They used 1 in the 8th, and that’s why their leading HR hitter wasn’t at ba...

re: How Shellshocked Were You Watching LSU-Florida 1996? - jrbjr
I was sitting in the North End Zone for (I think) the 1993 game- we were demolished 58-3. After UF’s last td in the North End, the extra point was kicked into the seats. The UF manager waved to the crowd for the ball, but whoever caught it, turned and threw it further up into the North end. Another ...

re: CPM giving Bianco the business for the mid AB pinch runner? - jrbjr
They could have cleared the bases with a double and needed another run just to tie. The tying run was the batter, not the base runners. It was not a smart, strategic move to PR in that situation....

re: LSU 2 @ Vandy 4 Final - ESPNU - jrbjr
This team probably won’t be #2 in Omaha this year, but we’ll be better in May than we are now. And if our young pitchers are healthy for a full season next year, we may be back in the CWS. Watch baseball for the long game. Don’t put too much into any one game....

I wouldn’t steal on a 3-0 count, but maybe Duplantis has a green light. Either way, not a high percentage move and maybe cost a run....

re: what's going on with baseball attendance - jrbjr
Don’t go to Stubhub. I bought 2 for the Sunday game vs Texas. Only singles available from lsutix.net. Once we got in, plenty of seats available. Parked right across the street for$10. Moved to seats behind 1st base. Hung around after to visit with family. No traffic when we left. I’ll give you poor,...
