Somewhat off topic, but I am listening to the Rays/Tigers game on the radio, and there is a guy who sounds like Jim Wilson doing the game. Makes me wonder why Jim Wilson isn’t doing bigger things. He is the best broadcaster the Beavs have ever had. Astute and interesting points, always spot on. Great voice. Not an emotional basketcase like Parker. Anyone know Jim, and why he hasn’t moved to better things?

Schedule is as follows:

Friday 7pm
Saturday 4pm
Sunday 12 noon

    With the weather we’ve had in Beaverton this week I’d love to be in AZ taking in a few Beaver games right about now.

    OT – Eagles release DeSean Jackson, Kelly rumored (in other articles) to be interested in Brandin Cooks. Cooks would offer similar ability, no headaches, and would cost less.

      Brandin is worth more than “no headaches” on any roster. And his ability to run the ball should make the rumors legit.

    I go to most of the footbal games so I don’t hear Wilson a lot, unless it’s part of the post game show, where he usually, though not always, shines. Seems to me baseball is his better sport to report on, which only figures since he played that game professionally. He supplements Jay Reese beautifully, in my opinion, but in an odd way he works better as a complement to Mike Parker, perhaps because having Jim in the booth seems to even out MIke’s performance. For what it’s worth (again noting that I hear Parker far more often on baseball broadcasts than football) I think he’s much better at baseball.

      I’ve never listened to football on radio so not sure. But I was talking about baseball yeah. A MLB team should hire him. I just wonder if he doesn’t want a MLB gig. If anyone knows…

    I’ve always appreciated Wilson’s analysis of the finer points of both football and baseball. Wilson’s Walkthrough is a feature I try not to miss before any football game.

    I know he has taught and coached at the high school level in Vancouver, always assumed he enjoyed the gig he has with OSU as a fun part-time job. Maybe he has kids still at home and is still teaching; makes some sense that the travel and commitment required of a full time broadcaster job may not appeal to him. At least not right now.

    This series with Arizona is a chance to regain some momentum, what with their “lackluster” pitching. It looks like it will be their strength against the Beavs strength and I like the Beavs chances so long as Casey doesn’t have to go to the BP too much. Arizona is desperate for a series win, you know they are gonna come out like…..well…cornered wildcats.

    Peterson looking good on D and now a triple, Morrison follows with another triple, 3-0 good guys. And Peterson is supposed to have a tweaked back.
    BTW, Ice cut down an attempted steal on a pitch out to end the 4th.
    Hendrix an RBI single, 4-0. A couple sloppy outfield plays by the cats this inning.

    First real buzz-kill of the night, after a leadoff 3B, and having bases loaded with NO outs the AZ pitcher works his way out without giving up a run. Still 5-0 but could have blown it open.

    I didn’t get a chance to watch but looking at the box score it was a good night for the Beavs on most counts, the exception being the pen again. 18 hits with Hendrix 4-5 with 4 runs scored, Davis 4-6 with 5 RBI and Wetzler with 7 and a third giving up only 3 hits and lowering his PAC-12 leading ERA.

    bullpen continues to worry, except SS. Dylan Davis bat coming alive now which bodes well for Beavs and look out rest of PAC 12 foes. Maybe the ASU series WAS the wakeup we needed. Let’s see what happens this weekend before saying “all is well”.

      I agree. The BP is a major concern, they are struggling to get batters out. I am surprised they have what we think is good talent, but have not translated to the pen. At first I thought it was more due tonthem getting their feet wet, but it seems like they still have not made the strides forward. It remains the one big question mark on this teams ability to ale a deep run. Even Schultz who has been the best in the back end has been inconsistent at best. If they can seal that whole up watch out.

    Pat Casey talking out of the side of his mouth grinding his teeth the whole time was not happy about Moore’s effort getting his pitches up. Then he mentioned how impatient they have been at plate saying “they want to do it on their own” and not listening to the coaches about waiting for the changeup to enter the zone. Yikes!

      That’s exactly what I saw, too. This ‘Zona pitcher is garbage. If they just wait and swing with their heads down they’d be monkey hammering him.

    Season long issue for the Beavers continuing today. Beavers struggle to get add on runs. They have their big inning and then the remainder of the game put together extremely poor at-bats. They lose focus consistently and hope the starter can bring the win home. They mail in at-bats with regularity.

      The 1b umpire was behind the play and really couldn’t see the tag. I’m sure the conference was “did anybody see the tag?” All say, not sure. So the call remains safe. Still a bad call as replays showed.

        No disagreement. In little league with two umps maybe you don’t see it, but with four umpires not one sees the tag? Poor officiating. And as you say, in the end it doesn’t matter.

    Morrison finally with a good AB but lines out opposite field. Two out walk for Hendrix and Peterson with opposite field single. Conforto drills one up the middle to score Hendrix. and Davis with a chopper to 3b and they go to 2b but runner beats the throw and another run scores. 7-0 Beavs.
