Let’s hear predictions for the Beavs in the CWS.

Since they’re #1 overall and having a historic season, the Beavs will have a target on their back every inning this post-season. When you’re a marked man like that, even teams like Yale and Holy Cross become dangerous in a short series. I’m not saying those teams will beat the Beavs, but the Beavs will be under constant attack from everybody, and added with the nerves of the post-season, it could be a recipe for an early exit. I see Vanderbilt as an early threat. Maybe Stanford in the super regional…but since they’re marked any team can get them. Very curious to see how Jake Thompson does…

Also, on the Petras signing. I like it. His WRs are wide open in the film, so it’s hard to gauge much, but he moves okay and has a nice delivery.

Go off topic, etc.

    They wouldn’t face Stanford until the CWS.

    I agree about the postseason nerves but everyone will have those. As far as the target is concerned, they’ve been under that fire all season. They will weather the storm and make it to the CWS!

    KJ’s and Kwan’s injuries are the wildcards.
    You have to be lucky to advance. We have had the luck running our way this year. Can it continue?
    2014 proved anything can happen. Team is confident and on a mission. Who knows, but why not.
    Prediction, I will be tailgating in Omaha. Stop by for beer. Go Beavs!

    I have seen enough grit from this team to believe that any extra nerves or jitters will be handled masterfully. It appears that PC has this team focused with a single-minded determination. This regional will display their dominance, albeit against inferior competition.

    When the 2014 squad earned the No. 1 overall seed, I didn’t really buy it. I can find few chinks in this team’s armor.

    Need to extend AB’s, and get to their middle relief/BP early, then it’s game over.

    A couple good pieces in the GT, one spotlights the academic accomplishments of the baseball team, NOTE: several psychology majors there.
    The other one has a focus on Max E. and Jake Thompson, “the only current players with home postseason experience”.

    Jake doesn’t believe the No. 1 national seed comes with added pressure, he says, “I feel like as a team, we should walk around like we’re the No. 1 team, like we want to be the last ones standing in Omaha,” he said. “We need to have that attitude, carry it with us and go out and play like we’re the No. 1 team.”

    #1 Seed has a curse associated with it, and statistically hasn’t done well. 1999 was the last time a #1 won it all. There will be close games, there always is. Beavs have grinded through a lot of close games and came out ahead in all but one. Jake Thompson didn’t pitch well at all in his last outing against the worst team Beavs have faced all year. I’m a pessimist — Beavs fall in Supers 2-1.

    The team has shown little to be considered a “paper tiger” team.

    I think most fans think the team could become a juggernaut if the offense clicked more. The committee gave the Beavs the right teams this time. Each would need a few miracles to beat the Beavs at home twice.

    The Supers will be tough with the offenses that are in the Clemson regional. But if the team makes it to Omaha, the park is well suited for the Beavs pitching.

            It has nothing to do with variable context other than they are completely different ideas because they are used in completely different contexts altogether. They are in no way interchangeable.

            I think Jake’s last outing was because he’s not a Saturday guy. I understand why it was done. Someone might have ended up in our regional who forced us into a Th-Sat schedule. But now we can go back to normal. Hopefully, we don’t even need him for the Supers.

        I said “mental midget”, and don’t confuse mental midget, mentally weak or whatever you want to call it, with a lack of intelligence. I don’t believe anyone ever said he was stupid. Great job on achieving success in the classroom but he had his worst outing against the worst competition of the year. I think that shows lack of focus. He relaxed and almost got beat if his teammates didn’t pick him up. I think that is angry’s point, if they relax anyone can beat them. Almost happened last weekend.

          I just don’t have confidence in Thompson under any duress because he failed for two years prior to this year. He has to do it more before I buy it. This weekend is a good time to start. He proved himself in the PAC, but I still don’t trust him in any big spot. If someone does, that’s their prerogative.

          If the team plays to the level of their opponents, they will be mentally weak. If they play to their own expectations, they will be fine.

    I think there may be an inherent intimidation factor here, too. Not only do these teams know they’re playing a consensus #1 team but the crowd size is a whole different level than they’re use to seeing. But as we know, shit happens and the Beavs could drop a game making this a difficult regional.

    One good thing about last week’s collapse by Jake is that it showed the team could spot another team 4 runs and still pull it out in the end with the bullpen shutting things down the rest of the way. I might be mistaken, but I believe the 4-0 hole was the biggest comeback by the Beavs all year….correct? I can’t think of any other game where they were down by more and still won.

This dude is going to surprise people when he takes off.He has some burst to him. I’ll be shocked if he doesn’t get to a 4th star midway through his senior year. Really nice get by Baldwin , Anderson and company.

            Also looks like my Brevin White source needs a talking to.. Not sure where he is going now. Pound for Pound Petras appears to be a more ready QB. While White probably has a higher ceiling.

    Casey said either Heimlich or junior right-hander Jake Thompson (12-0, 1.31 ERA) will start Friday’s Corvallis Regional opener against fourth-seeded Holy Cross. Pitching coach Nate Yeskie and Casey were planning to go over the matchups after Wednesday’s practice.

    “We are comfortable with either one of them,” Casey said. “By (Thursday) at noon, we will know exactly what we’re going to do the first two games.”

    Drew Rasmussen (3-0, 0.51) is not in the mix to start Game 1 but could go Saturday or Sunday.

    http://www.gazettetimes.com/sports/beavers-sports/baseball/osu-baseball-notebook-heimlich-madrigal-are-golden-spikes-semifinalists/article_63ae8086-f4a8-57ef-90de-cb9895c27c15.html

    I’d actually be ok with Thompson starting Friday night against a mediocre at best Holy Cross team despite what happened last weekend against another crappy opponent. However, he’d be on a short leash with a similar results. Save Heimlich and Rasmussen for Saturday and Sunday against a tougher opponent.

    As for postseason predictions? I predict this team makes it to Omaha. Not saying they’ll win it all though. It takes some lucky bounces and breaks to do so but once you get there, you’ve got a shot. That said, this team DOES have the talent, arms, depth and coaching to bring home another title. And they’re currently on another tear as they were in March. Buckle up for the ride kiddies.

      If they make it to Omaha they will be the favorites. TD Ameritrade Park in Omaha is very pitcher friendly. Few HRs are hit there if you can recall the last time the Beavs played there. I think only a couple HRs were hit the entire CWS.

      Casey really can’t go wrong with Jake or Luke in game 1. Don’t see much issue there.

      You are being generous calling Holy Cross mediocre. They are a team that got hot for 4 games in a weak conference.

        Agreed. Go with what works: Luke on Friday, Drew on Saturday, Jake on Sunday. In the Supers, keep the same rotation.

        If we get to Omaha, Luke on Friday, Jake on Sunday, Drew available for long relief or to get to the pen… but rest him a bit, Luke on Friday, Drew on Monday, Jake on Tuesday, the kitchen sink on Wednesday if necessary.

        But that’s best case. Luke is the one talking about retaining or increasing endurance. So I imagine he’s just ready to throw. Why take him out of Friday duty? He sets the tone for the weekend.

            Yup. Stick with your guy that gives you the best chance to win game #1. If it happens to be a comfortable lead after the 6th inning, pull him and have him available for a few inning later in the weekend if needed. Weird shit happens in baseball and if you lose the first game all bets are off.

      I was leaning toward the Stanford game because I love campus around Halloween, but curious to hear thoughts on the best game on the schedule this year.

        Looks like UW is the best opponent on the home schedule. Might be interesting to see how a (hopefully) healthy Beavers team does against the Dawgs at home. I’d pick the Dawgs in that one and be looking for how the Beavers fight (fight fight) for four quarters. .

            Haha. Fuck her.
            But back to a tailgate, I’d like to carve up angry@angry. I can sling it like 50 yards with pinpoint accuracy.
            I just don’t know it would be awkward. Like part of the reason this site runs the way it does is because you guys don’t know me. If we all become friends it could get gay here.

            No no no… winking at another guy is gay. Touching balls is how you get pregnant.

            It wouldn’t be the first time someone overreacted to words I’ve said and decided to get violent instead of digesting said words. But you can’t talk about politics anymore without just saying our POTUS is just dumbfuckery personified.

            I never thought I’d see the day an American President would get bitch slapped by a Frenchie half his age… let alone the complete beating he will continue to take from everyone else now and into the distant future. What a waste of a stuffed suit.

            That’s politics as it stands now. Not much else to say except to laugh my ass off at how stupid the man and his sycophants really are. The cynical among them are even funnier than the true believers. They think they can just keep pulling the football away. But they don’t seem to understand that when it comes to doing that, Lucy makes Dipshit Donald look like Garo Yepremian.

    Never seen a more arrogant group of athletes come to Corvallis than Holy Cross. I’ve seen many a team come through town over the years, so that is saying something.

        Holy Cross is in Worcester, MA. They are basically Boston like cockneys who don’t want to pay Boston cost of living. Campus is an eyesore compared to OSU. Just small stands around their football field. Their sports don’t have much of a following.

        If you drafted Bowie, you didn’t draft Jordan. If you drafted Oden, you didn’t draft Durant.

        If you didn’t draft Curry, you were also the fool, some more so than others.

        But still, the biggest joke this year so far was Atlanta pulling a Duck in the Super Bowl.

    From Jim Wilson, via twitter:
    Nebraska: Look good filing off bus, on paper. Best starter, closer are 2-way guys
    Yale: Nice looking team
    Holy Cross: = Abilene Christian

    Tried ordering tickets from Holy Cross, they took my credit card #, said order was complete. 2 hours later got an email saying they couldn’t fill the order, all their tickets had been sold.

    Watching some of the early games today and noticed that a lot of teams in the south have converted their fields to all turf fields. Interesting since none of the southern PAC 12 schools have turf.

    Hearing on the radio that Bill Snyder is under scrutiny for blocking a player from being able to transfer to any of the 35 options the player presented to coach. Instead, he mentioned to the media that this kid has failed two drug tests(not sure why he bothered mentioning that)
    Fans and media got on his case, and now he’s given in and grsnted the transfer, but the damage to his character has already been done.

    Why is this important? Because if Snyder decides he’s tired of the BS and retires from coaching (or if KSU lets him go), many think oregon DC Jim Leavitt is next in line to tske the KSU job. He even has a special out clause in his contract that says he can take the KSU job without having to pay his buyout.

    I like Snyder, but I would live to see him walk away so Leavitt leaves oregon and Silly Willie high and dry.

        That’s Snyder’s wish, but the current and previous ADs at KSU don’t share that view. But the more Snyder digs a hole for himself with this bad publicity over the transfer situation, the less likely the school will respect his wishes, in my opinion.
