If it happens then MLTN it means going to BR regional. Let THAT happen.

I'll gladly take a trip to BR at this point if it means TU is back in regional play. :-D

SR, thank you so much for that. One of the greatest memories I will ever have. I wish he had a couple more years of eligibility.

Good stuff JP and Dave. (Hoese drafted by the chiefs though?!) Way to touch on the LSU situation too!

Here’s the players walk out songs.

The decision about who to put in centerfield will be based on which player Jewett thinks can cover the most ground.



Novel idea there

I kind of heard of a couple of the artists.

FYI, Ty Johnson is walking out to a song by his sister.

CHIEFS!!!! Arrrrrgggghhh.. total rookie mistake. Only 2nd time doing a podcast, so still learning, but I love the fact the JP is giving me the chance. Total credit to him. If I had the time, I’d do a weekly, or semi weekly podcast.. Just not enough hours in the day...

Glad y’all liked it.

I have us going 37-19 overall and 13-11 in conference.

I think we snag one against Ole Miss and take 2/3 from UCSB. Call me crazy but I’ve got a good feeling about this group.

This team breaks out and advances to a Super Regional.

We'll get the lucky bounces this year and make them count. The consequence is that it will support a "patience has rewards" message which is absolutely not transitive to our basketball situation.

Now that we have seen us against 3 teams including a top 10, have your expectations changed?

To repeat what was said in the Ole Miss game thread, we look like we can play with anyone. Offensively we look the best we’ve looked in a while.

Areas of improvement are the obvious relief pitching woes with the inability to pitch with 2 outs and we were not a very smart base running team this weekend, especially Saturday.

We’ve looked better than I expected, but there’s still some pretty big concerns about the pitching staff.

Going to revise your absurdly pessimistic number yet?

That would be a cop out. I made my prediction, if it’s way off then so be it. Can’t help but notice that you never even made a prediction.

Now after a couple more weekends I think it’s safe to say we still need pitchers and a pitching coach. Neither area appears to have improved since last year. I think about .500 is the best we can hope for. How we only have one starting pitcher (Roper) baffles me.

How DARE you profane a coach who once played for Rick Jones! Don't you know they're all infallible??

Recruiting.
Supposed to be TJ’s calling card, he’s not done a good job bringing in talent on the mound.

Pierce didn't either. what is interesting is that it seemed like even in RJ's bad years, we still had decent pitching.

TJ better fix this. I believe this is year 3.
