re: Sandy Koufax - LSU GrandDad
there are others with just as impressive 5 yr span. Ron Guidry, Bob Gibson, JR Richard and some others I just can't recall right now. but I love me some Koufax; saw him pitch more than once and Drysdale was pretty damn close. ...

re: Orgeron has been given everything he wants....if he doesn’t win it’s on him - LSU GrandDad
[quote]I'm guessing his boss. Orgeron probably has to deal with stupid Louisiana politics that we are unaware of. Probably hurt Miles also.[/quote] politics hurts everybody everywhere (except bama) but I just don't understand why alleva or any one in admin would not allow us to bring back Henry...

re: LSU Baseball: We Don't Rebuild, We Reload - LSU GrandDad
no one in college baseball simply "reloads". we come as close as anybody else tho. baseball is just so heavily dependent on pitching and that is very hard to just "reload" with the draft and with schollie limits. ...

re: So all said and done....are we that bad or is ND baseball that good? - LSU GrandDad
neither. basically, we underperformed and they overperformed. they overperformed because our pitchers could not throw strikes. the same thing happened at the beginning of last year. imo, it is becoming a "thing" with Dunns' pitchers. my theory is that they are overcoached and it takes them a while t...

re: How does LSU/CPM attempt to replace Kramer Robertson? - LSU GrandDad
it took Robertson 3 years to start? he sucked at first and almost quit the team. [quote]Only Paul mainieri could lose in the finals with last years loaded roster. Will Wade is far and away the best coach on campus. To better days, and the firing of Coach Paul Mainie[/quote] it's amazing how ...

re: LSU Baseball Hadn't Lost An Opening Series Since 1999 - LSU GrandDad
no streak lasts forever. i'm glad we lost this series. after last years run we need to be reminded how hard it is to end on top. this team has talent and needs to elevate their game. i'm betting PM will do just that. he's proven he can do it....

re: Did I count right ND had 10 stolen bases? - LSU GrandDad
[quote] LSU will be a national seed by the end of the season. Learn your history fricktards[/quote] maybe, but I wouldn't bet a lot of money on this. we will improve on defense and hitting but you have to have some damn good starting pitching to be a national seed. I am awaiting this quality pitch...

[quote]At least the football melts are largely warranted [/quote] no, most of them are not warranted. Troy and MSU were really bad and early in the year but the rest of the melts are just anti-O garbage. he can't hire anyone or make any moves that he is not only criticized for but ridiculed. it i...

re: Did I count right ND had 10 stolen bases? - LSU GrandDad
[quote]Mostly pitchers. I know its not cool to say, but I actually think Notre Dame will be a decent team after watching them. If they get a couple arms to workout for them on the mound, they could make a little noise in the ACC. They have 3 or 4 real quality bats. Their catcher was legit defensi...

re: Notre Dame baseball team is just better than LSU - LSU GrandDad
[quote] Especially when they can't hit the strike zone to save their lives and when they do it's meatballs right down the middle. [/quote] just like last year. Lange and the entire bullpen were terrible for the first 2-3 weeks of the season last year. Poche' and a few veterans were all we had. ...
