It will be interesting to see how Bates does in his second start. Looking forward to it.

Lose 8-7 on a walk off wild pitch

Painful to watch. Diving on an uncatchable blooper leading to a triple instead of a single....need to keep that ball in front to preserve the lead. Then multiple wild pitches/passed balls including two that cost runs. This is not Tulane baseball.

Wild pitches/Passed balls cost us. Anything in the dirt got to backstop. All should've been blocked.

It is a long season and this is one game, but giving away a game we should have won easily hurts that much more when the opponent is not going to turn any heads. Whatever uno has as a record or rpi now (don't know and don't care), by the end of the year their rpi is probably going to be in the low hundreds at best and even if we beat them in the next two this is the kind of bad loss that we cannot afford if we find ourselves on the bubble.

The 8th inning was as pathetic as I have ever seen. How does he stick with a guy that can’t find the plate and is tossing it all over the stadium? He was gassed so I blame the staff for leaving him in. I know it is a 5 game week but you can’t just give away games.

No idea why he dives for a ball when the run that mattered was the guy that hit it.

It’s hard to imagine this team making a regional with no bullpen.

I haven't commented on the Baseball Team for quite a while, and there's a reason.

With last year and this year's team (and especially the pitching coaching), I am losing all interest in Baseball.

I have been a long time season ticket holder (since 97), and it use to be a big thrill for me to look forward to each baseball season, but nothing is there any more. Until something big time changes, I lost it. :(

Anyone can say what they want, but I don't care anymore.

You are usually the beacon of optimism for baseball, Cletus. Moreso than many of us.

Hang in there. As we used to say in the Submarine Force, it’ll get better after (insert next inspection/deployment/command change). Because if you have no optimism you are truly beaten.

With all those new folks we brought in this year, I thought there would be some good pitching. It may take some time for the team to gel given all the new faces, but damn we went from a pretty damn good team under Pierce to underperforming. Makes me think a lot of this is coaching. Cannizaro is now available! I wonder if he will sign quickly with another team or not. Probably best he could do is as an assistant coach right now.

No way anybody touches Andy C. with a 39.5 foot pole right now. And we shouldn't even be talking about him here at this point.

What are the odds RJ will ever coach again? If those odds are decent enough, then what are odds he would ever coach at TU again (or that we would consider him)?


Are you still involved with the game now?
"I'm going to coach one the teams of stars over the summer at the USA complex. They bring in the 80 best high school players and break them into four teams, and I'm going to coach one of them. The former head coach at Clemson is going to coach one, Fred McGriff, former player with the Braves is going to coach one. Past that, I'm not really sure. I've had some chances for some things in pro ball, but because of family obligations, I wasn't able to take them. I'm having conversations every day with my former guys. I'm looking forward to going to Starkville on opening day and seeing Andy Cannizaro coach his first game."

What do you miss the most about college baseball?
"The two things I miss, my wife and I miss the restaurants in New Orleans and we miss the city. And I really miss practice. Not necessarily the games. This will give me an opportunity to do a little bit of teaching and maybe get back involved, but we'll see what happens from there. We do miss all of the people that took care of us, and were so loyal to us and our program. I was hired by (former Tulane Director of Athletics) Kevin White. One of the things he did was he brought in Coach Ron Frazier – the late Coach Ron Frazier – to talk to some of the alumni who were close to my age. He said the right things to them and walked me in front of them. Those guys are still close friends of mine, and they really did a lot to help our program in a lot of ways. To have so many of my former players who are so successful in whatever field, whether it be coaching, attorneys, physicians, business people, whatever – I totally get that. The bottom line for me is: I worked 18 years to get my dream job. Tulane was it, and it worked out well.

"I'm just proud I was able to represent the University in that national Hall of Fame, and the Louisiana Hall of Fame. So many of the fans and the Greenbackers drove up for the Louisiana Hall of Fame in June, and that was a great night. Then, having all my guys there for the ABCA Hall of Fame was special, that whole weekend was special."

I really can't fathom how we didn't have someone ready and make a change after the first or at most second batter in the 8th.
