re: YSU 2 @ LSU 6 FINAL TIGERS WIN!!! - UpToPar
[quote]actually think this year is their best chance with the starting rotation we have. All three will be gone next year.[/quote] Blake Money will throw Friday, Saturday, and sundays next year. We just need to find a closer....

re: Mainieri says Drost practicing in CF - UpToPar
[quote]this situation, id imagine crews and drost have similar foot speed, so if close to equal, might as well just have one person trying to get used to a new position instead of two.[/quote] This. CF requires more tools (I.e. speed), but if you have two players with similar speed then CF is not...

re: Breaking news: Dylan Crews hits it really hard - UpToPar
[quote]not sure if you are trying to knock him, but hitting .200 in your "worst" game so far as a college freshman isn't really something to complain about [/quote] I'm not trying to knock him. I'm pointing out that he hit the ball hard and could have easily been 4 for 5 on the night....

re: This team can't hit...Paul can't coach - UpToPar
[quote]There may be specific situations where it benefits the offense, but as a whole, based on historical mlb run production, the perceived protection provides almost no difference in run expectancy, and if i remember correctly, if anything may drive it down a fraction over time. I need to re-read ...

re: This team can't hit...Paul can't coach - UpToPar
[quote]So Beloso batting fourth, where he has batted in the last 3 games, protects Crews batting at lead off?? WTF?? [/quote] Right now, your (arguably) best three hitters behind Crews are protecting him. If you move Crews to the 3 hole, Beloso is your only protection....

[quote]If he was just a little faster running the bases my leading candidate to lead off (in front of Crews) would be Beloso. [/quote] Why? Crews needs protection and Beloso is the best protection we have right now....

[quote]I don't disagree. But that wasn't the point josh was making regarding "getting on base" which I replied to.[/quote] Alright, so if you take Crews out of the 1 hole, who would you put there? Morgan seems to be the best option to me....

re: This team can't hit...Paul can't coach - UpToPar
[quote]Crews, who is at the top of the batting order, has an on-base % almost 100 points higher than Morgan.[/quote] With Crews swinging the bat like he is, you need him hitting with runners on. Having him hit behind Thompson and Milazzo is not going to do it....

re: LSU 11 @ ULL 2 FINAL TIGERS WIN!! - UpToPar
[quote]I think an outfield of Dugas, Crews and Drost is definitely our best offensive lineup while Gio is out. And if it works out as well as I think it might it would be a mighty tough decision to be made once Gio gets healthy [/quote] Would be a good problem to have. Could always bump Duga...

re: Dylan Crews is special - UpToPar
[quote]His plate discipline is off the charts for a freshman[/quote] His pitch recognition is what stuck out to me. You typically see even highly ranked kids out of high school come in and struggle to recognize the breaking ball early in their freshman season (see Jake Slaughter). I haven't seen...

re: Chris Reid from the top rope with Mainieri’s parody twitter account - UpToPar
[quote]Wrong. Try years of travel ball playing 5-6 games In a two day period. Most of the high school coaches are not going to overwork a college/pro prospect. [/quote] I mean, that's part of it too, but if you don't think pitchers are overused in high school, idk what to tell you. The coache...

re: Chris Reid from the top rope with Mainieri’s parody twitter account - UpToPar
That makes sense. He came from the big leagues so maybe he was a bit too set in his ways regarding midweek work. The difference in a 18-19 year old arm and a 22-23 year old arm is fairly significant. Especially given that most of those 18-19 year olds are coming into the program having been over...
