13.Feb.2015 Surprise Tournament: Michigan State vs. Oregon State

Saturday 12pm, radio only.

Travis Eckert, JC transfer, gets the start. He had one great season at JC and one terrible, so we’ll see what we have here. Regarding the lineup, it needs to change sooner rather than later. Not going to win much putting today’s lineup out there. This is like last year when Casey kept playing Casper, who was so obviously terrible. Well you can’t bat Morrison 2nd (he’s an ideal 9 hitter with the low average and high OBP).

I’m expecting a loss, because I don’t believe in Eckert, but we’ll see. I’d rather see Luke Heimlich get this start and Eckert go vs New Mexico.

Note: A men’s basketball thread will go up just before 2pm for the USC game.

    I love this guy, he’s a tight end for the Bears

    He also hates fantasy football which is awesome. Can’t stand fantasy sports teams.

        And before you diminish all that is blah blah about that side versus all that is blah blah about that side… remember that there are three whites doing precisely what blacks do… or Mexicans do… or whomever do… all the time.

        Just not whites. Because it’s their month… sometime… when someone cares.

          Besides, what idiot fails to know is that May is Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month… or yellow, as he calls them. And November is Native American Heritage Month… or what he says is red.

          Every month is WASP history month. Just look at any form of American media or advertising… or your little butt-hurt support for a guy who catches footballs (on some plays) for a living.

            -or-

            Are you celebrating the possibility to celebrate the histories of anything non-white all the time, instead of just one month per? That would be an interesting concept. But I’m pretty sure the majority in Congress and the Texas State Board of Ed wouldn’t let anyone grow up thinking these things if they had any say.

        Trolling for Jack is an exceedingly low bar. He hits almost every post like a starving sturgeon. JB

        PS: To be expected next. A lengthy dissertation, at least three inches, from fishing expert Jack on the dining habits of sturgeon.

          Lay off Jack. Jack is a hero and protector of the little people. Didn’t you know Jack was on that chopper with Lyin Brian when they got shot down at the Brandenburg Gate.

    OT… did our AD suddenly start going with Benny instead of the new golf wedge or the poop smear? I see the latest PSA tweets with the cool logo up. but I want something more official than, “Yeah… the new football coach took a look at the crap marketing you’ve put together for the last however many years, and he is not impressed.”

    I also want even Benny to change colors. There is no brown in our OSU life.

    It’s weird going to the D1 Baseball website to check daily scores and having to scroll down to the P-12 conference area to find the Beav game instead of just checking the Top 30 teams listed at the top of the page. I don’t think the Beavs have ever been out of the Top 30 since I’ve been going to that site. I hope they prove the prognosticators wrong this year.

      I think they will. I think by the end of the season they’ll be a top 20 team with the development of the young hitters and having a pretty good starting rotation

    Sacrifice bunting with 1 out will never ever make sense

    Casey has won national titles, so people get mad when I criticize him. The titles make him untouchable. I get it. But he’s as dumb as Riley sometimes. It just happens to work for him more often. But today bunting with 1 out, wrong personnel, bad lineup, etc. A lot of the same Riley problems.

    Small ball is nice and all but every inning you should play for a big inning, especially with your better hitters coming up. Never play for 1 run unless it’s a late inning situation. Getting just 1 run instead of 2 or 3 ends up costing you often

      I agree, better off trying a straight steal or hit and run. The only time it makes sense is if the bunter is (a) blazing fast and (b) a terrific bunter, because then he can beat it out or even force an error. Even then, though…questionable

      The probability of scoring a run with a man on 2nd and 2 out is 22%. The probability of scoring a run with a man on 1st and 1 out is 28%, for those interested.

    Harrison is off to a really nice start this year. Could have gotten more that inning. Beavers gave up an out to end the inning by trying to “steal a run”. Need a lot to go right to get a run in that situation

    In basketball it’s interesting that Oregon is seen as a couple wins away from an at-large tourney berth and OSU is seen as not having a chance. Oregon hasn’t beat a team with an RPI in the top 40, let alone top 25. Beavers have a win over the #6th ranked team in the RPI. Neither team has an RPI top 50 win over a team in a true road game. Their resume is pretty similar but one could argue the Beavers have had more impressive wins. Seems like a lot of narratives are at work here.

    OSU needs to beat USC or the Beavers will start to get some mention of possibly falling out of the NIT. That would be a nightmare. Enormity of the moment begins in 11 minutes…

    Go Beavs!

        I liked him alot. It more represents the changing culture. We got McGiven, may make a run at Chuckie Keaton and USU is GA’s old haunt. After Andersen’s time in say 7 or 8 years then yes I would look forward to a hire like Wells to keep it moving forward and peehaps continue a culture with a nice thread moving through it.

    Almost all new lineup and pitchers and you guys want perfection fom day two. You will not allow experimentation, not allow kids to grow thru adversity. Criticism yes. Back seat driving two games in is farcical. Hijole. Try some Ritalin. Better yet try some clearasil. The very nature of baseball is slow cook, not fast food and zits.

    Beavers are on pace to go 56-0 with 56 wins in their final at-bat. Completely sustainable
