  1. Rough outing for Stuart. Right as I was banging the drum for him to get a Sunday start too. Can't give up two runs on wild pitches though.
  2. Sorry to whoever down voted my opinion on beer taste. But Yuengling tastes fermented butt juice.
  3. Idk about aspirational, but I'd take an Ultra over a Yuengling any day.
  4. Yeah, I think we are going to get a home and home, then get bought out for the third and I’m not mad about it.
  5. He probably does amp it up when he’s got a guy on the ropes, but the development of his change up will help that. I saw him go to it in K situations Friday night with good results. I posted an article a while back where an MLB guy called unhittable at times and it looked like it. He also buckled a lefty with a slider, so his fastball is being used as a set pitch. He has the stuff to only need to reach back when gets behind, or needs a strikeout to get out jams. He really avoided that for the most part on Friday. It really was a game that you could get bored watching because no Army hitter seemed like a threat.
  6. I think Pete could handle a game one as long as it’s not a Florida type team.
  7. Montez had a really good series. The bottom of the order came through today.
  8. Is Alec Wisely the best option to start the Sunday game against UConn? His last two outings have not been very good. I mentioned Baron Stuart a post earlier. He did let the wheels fall off a bit in the sixth against JU, but has been solid in two other mid-week starts. Any other thoughts on who would be the best option?

  9. Had to pull one out in the end thanks to a round 4th. Another double digit hit day is a positive. Two straight sweeps.
  10. Ever wanted to know what "The Process" is? This book tells all. https://www.amazon.com/Saban-Making-Coach-Monte-Burke/dp/1476789940
  11. This is a deep look into all the decisions an MLB manager has to make throughout a season. My favorite part was reading around 5 pages or so about whether or not he should have thrown over to first while a runner was on. He went on to explain the impact it can make just by simply throwing over and how it changed the game. Bonus: USF alum La Russa is a graduate of the University of South Florida (bachelor of arts in industrial management, 1969) -Wiki https://www.amazon.com/One-Last-Strike-Baseball-Championship/dp/0062207547
  12. I really liked this one. My favorite part was the relationship between Francona and Epstein in the process of breaking the curse. https://www.amazon.com/Francona-Red-Sox-Years-Terry/dp/B00QUEXPC0
  13. Are they a team that wins a regional? No, but they could be better than last year, its still to early to tell. We really need to find a Sunday Starter though.
  14. I don't know about Wisely after nine outs..... Might need to look elsewhere. Kinda wish CBM would have given this start to Stuart instead. Just to see if theres something there.
  15. I wonder what happened to Facebook live this weekend?
  16. But who’s to say those people can’t be replaced? I know we are missing Merrell’s glove but this line up hasn’t given any reason to believe the bats haven’t been replaced. Friday and Saturday starters look good, relief has been solid. No reason to believe this team can’t be successful in conference play, it’s not like we are the only team playing lower competition right now.
  17. Also, if the TJ issue is something that interest you, check out the baseball club, I’m posting about a book I read that really breaks down the epidemic.
  18. It is physical. It’s about needing to get out of at- bats and reaching back for more vs just cruising through them. It’s also about the fatigue of your legs. If your legs are tired, you lose you bottom half and must create more velocity with your arm. This increases the torque on your elbow. Now, if his family and agents are getting a say in his use, then there’s nothing that can be done about that. https://www.fangraphs.com/plus/hot-stove-u-stress-pitches-vs-pitch-count/
  19. This book called the arm is a really good investigation on the TJ problem in baseball. I am also including a review. Let me know if you I have read it, I would love to discuss thoughts on it. https://books.google.com/books/about/The_Arm.html?id=_A8oCgAAQBAJ&printsec=frontcover&source=kp_read_button https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/the-mystery-of-pitchers-elbow-troubles-and-the-miracle-of-recovery/2016/04/15/461d1930-fc15-11e5-80e4-c381214de1a3_story.html
