re: Pitchers available against Auburn - LSU GrandDad
I just learned that BOTH of Auburn's injured starters have returned and will play this week-end. the SEC tourney also begins on Tuesday. this series is a make it or break it as far as hosting goes but it's gonna be a lot tougher than many think. we will need our bats to win the series and who knows ...

re: IMO this Texas game will be similar to Miami - LSU GrandDad
Tejas is probably more talented, yet less experienced than Miami and they are playing at home. I think we will win but it will be competitive...

re: Paul Mainieri's Future - LSU GrandDad
[quote]I don't have a hard time believing this, but I have a hard time believing this information was leaked somehow. Why would Woodward or CPM tell anyone they had this conversation? What is there to gain? Thus, I declare bullshitee.[/quote] I call bull shite also. i'm sure PM has not gotten o...

re: Paul Mainieri's Future - LSU GrandDad
[quote]Doesn’t make sense. If he wants to win so bad why doesn’t he go get some outside assistants?[/quote] man, this has been discussed dozens of times on here. have you been living under a rock? the NCAA only allows two paid assistants and PM has two. you may not like that we have a hitting co...

re: LSU pitchers - LSU GrandDad
[quote]Or they have arm soreness but the travel ball coaches don’t give a shite and convince them to pitch through it or they will risk their pro / college chances. [/quote] worse than that. my son was benched more that once when I wouldn't let him throw curves at age 11 and 12. the travel ball c...

re: LSU pitchers - LSU GrandDad
sorry but you really do not know what you are talking about. travel ball has not been singled out as the sole reason for pitchers arms being shot by the time they reach college. you obviously have not pitched at a high level and probably should educate yourself on what kids do to their arms these da...

re: LSU is mediocre - LSU GrandDad
if LSU is mediocre that makes Auburn piss poor. piss poor in all 3 of the mentioned sports. maybe it's best to just keep your mouth shut. :lol:...

re: Recent pic of Mike the Tiger - LSU GrandDad
I get that we're down in baseball this year and you guys are having a field day. I imagine we've kicked y'alls arse so many times that you have a lot of pent up angst. so have a good time while you can BUT leave our fricking Tiger out of it a-hole! :doublebird: :doublebird: :doublebird: :doublebir...

re: Pick off of Josh Smith - LSU GrandDad
[quote]Announcers said definitely a balk. I’ve never been good at seeing/calling balks.[/quote] it was an obvious balk. you are not alone because balks can be confusing because there are so many ways to commit one. their pitcher made an obvious move toward the plate before changing direction an...

re: Ole Miss 1st baseman - LSU GrandDad
I felt sorry for the kid; he's an 18 year old freshman playing at the Box for the first time. later, he was charged with an error when Smith crushed it and the 1st baseman couldn't handle the bounce. lets just say he had a bad day. ...

re: Some of you have never competed for anything in your life and it's showing right now - LSU GrandDad
[quote]The ones complaining about coach bianco not smiling when his kid hit a bomb off his team when they are still trying to get back in the game are the ones who got participation trophies playing soccer on Saturday mornings.

re: The run begins tonight - LSU GrandDad
you might be correct and I hope you are BUT our next 8 games are going to be quite a challenge. while it is still possible to be a national seed I have reconciled that we will probably host a regional and hit the road for the super. every thing is speculation right now but this team seems to hav...

re: How the Hell is LSU supposed to beat Alabama this year? - LSU GrandDad
[quote]The frick is wrong with you and this defeatist mentality [/quote] my sentiments exactly. this type of thing (unable to beat a certain team) happens all the time in sports. part of it is physical but part of it is mental. the players have to THINK they can win. they also have to be close eno...

re: LSU hitting stats vs Alabama - LSU GrandDad
[quote] Winning 2/3 over the Gumps was most fortunate based on a really lackluster offensive output this week. [/quote] I completely agree. it seemed that bama got the bat on the ball better and more often than we did. even guys batting less than .250 were hitting it solid. this team better i...

[quote]We’re first in the league in sac flies and sixth in bunts. And 4th in runs scored.[/quote] and we're 4th in the west. small ball will kill us in Omaha (if we get there). we are more ineffective on stopping small ball than we are in executing it, imo. ...

re: Do people still think Hess is good? - LSU GrandDad
he is definitely struggling and has had only 2 or 3 quality outings this year. I know he suffered a groin pull early in the season and again a couple of weeks ago but I think his main issue is fast ball control and he only has two pitches. we want him in the pen but keep adding to our injuries. ...

re: Today’s Baseball Game Is A Must Win... - LSU GrandDad
the game is important but not a must win. we can still have a great season if we don't host a super. BUT, we are going to have to get Henry and Hill back and start getting some damn hits. also, this team is shitty at manufacturing runs. most of this is our terrible bunting skills but also ou...

re: Why did Ed Alexander leave again? - LSU GrandDad
[quote]Toby Weathersby, for instance. He had no reason to leave besides wanting $ (which he was projected to go undrafted). So he signed a UDFA contract, has made 100k to date, and is now jobless with no degree. [/quote] as far as the no degree part he can rectify that EASILY. I worked my way t...
