Go batman beavs!
Called into JB show today to set everyone straight about The Riley Mindset :p
Link? Did you mention angrybeavs? You guys need to promote it when you call.
It’ll probably show up here eventually http://www.hypothetical.net/beaver/beavercast-full.xml
Why don’t *you* call in? 😉
It’s up: http://hypothetical.net/beaver/assets/JoeBeaverShow_2015-03-10.mp3
I’m busy and didn’t even know this show existed until a few months ago.
I listened and quite honestly, the dorks hosting that show completely missed your point. And Riley had been here for the last 14 years not 16.
Aren’t you busy stealing crab legs and prepping for the draft?
Yeah, the Riley Mindset see no evil, speak no evil bubble
someone had a “fail” again. No attempt to troll there
don’t worry, it was pretty obvious, winston soaked napkins
Good call, scotty. The sub hosts probably let you go on a little more than Parker would have and I’m sure Parker would have had more of a response.
I wish Parker had been there. Like the caller after me said to the host, “who is this?”
Baseball team is looking good. It’s great to know that we have an excellent coach who won’t let inexperience completely ground a program even in what could be seen as a down year.
Sorry if this is too off-topic, but I am so overjoyed with the decisiveness of Andersen. Having seen Riley waffle on quarterbacks well into the season (2012 anyone?), I can’t begin to explain the excitement of him narrowing it to three, having Baldwin identify that they were clearly ahead of the others, and politely showing the rest the door. It adds a further intrigue into the Spring that we haven’t had before.
Decisive leadership and excitement sound like neat deals 😀
You know what they say: If you have seven quarterbacks, you really have none
Scotty, that’s 3 smiley faces that you’ve already used in this thread. You’ve hit your weekly max for emojis on this site, and it’s only Tuesday. Gotta pace yourself.
That’s what happens when I have too much caffeine
[tries stifling another smiley…. trying… trying…]
beavs up 1-0 after an inning
5-0 Beavers in the 3rd. Error, groundout and two run single in the inning to score the 4 runs in the third
Guess we can see why Portland is 4-15 on the year
Nobach RBI double makes it 6-0
He tagged it well but looked to me like it could have been caught.
That HBP racked up by Hendrix in the 3rd looked brutal. Close to the side of the knee, eventhough Jay R said foot.
Good to see him moving OK later that inning, bears watching when he comes up in b4.
Unbelievable catch by Nobach. Tweedt isn’t fooling anyone now.
I DEMAND A VINE *pounds on table*
Yep, nice run and held on to the ball after crashing into the wall.
And then Tweedt follows with 2 swinging K’s, both on counts of 1-2.
Hendrix leg/knee looked fine running from 3 to H. Now 8-2 good guys.
EDIT: And then, in the 5th Hendrix looks good trying to beat out the bunt, I’m not gonna worry about that knee anymore.
beaver video feed
4 of the last 5 outs all on swinging K’s.
Then a Leadoff double ripped to left
Yup, it’s finally time. Let’s see another arm, not like any need to save the pen for a game in the next day or two.
I love how the Portland guy scores and his teammates in the dugout aren’t even looking
That high throw by Morrison was pretty unusual for him. As Jim Wilson recently said, you don’t have to worry about his throws. Nice stretch by Harrison to make the out.
And then a nice dig out by Harrison to end the inning.
Is Tinkle starting the walkons again for the Pac12 tourney?
Mark Massari ?@BennysGotMyBack 39m39 minutes ago
@waynetinkle lets the 5 OSU starters for tomm first round @Pac12Networks game #Commit2MakingDreamsComeTrue
This is not a good idea.
That can’t be true. Is Tinkle just trying to stick it to critics of the move? Or if they win somehow vindicate the move? Or is he just obsessed with being Riley? I don’t understand. It’s a mockery at this point.
I hope Wayne starts them and takes them out after a possession to troll everyone
Yeah because that’s a trait you want in a head coach: 50 something year old troll.
A move that doesn’t hurt the team’s chances of winning and has some fun? I’ll take that any day.
How does it not hurt their chances of winning? Because it’s CO? So having no respect for the opponent is the new motto? That’s great, too. /sarc
We just saw how that turned out for the women.
So, if Oregon State started them, won the opening tip, took a timeout and put the the regulars back in that impacts the game? Glad to see you’re not blowing things completely out of proportion
Well hey, let’s just play walk-ons the entire game then. That would sure create some memories and buzz!
^ guys like this are precisely why you can never take the Riley out of OSU.
I can only guess its ego, and that he wants another chance to prove he can do it right this time?
Still it makes no sense, it just seems desperate. I don’t agree with the move.
This most likely should have been the plan from the start, and not start them on CW. But don’t make two mistakes for the sake of your ego?
-maybe tinks thinks with a plan and practice the W/O’s can do better.
-this is the kind of thing you do (if at all) on your HOME floor, not on a neutral site,
-if this is true it has to be an indication that Massari/Tinkle have gotten positive feedback on this “feelgood” story.
IMHO, victories are more “feelgood”.
once was fine. Now? Dumb. If you lose this game your season is potentially over. Didn’t mind it on “senior day”, don’t like doing it again in a win or go home scenario. Boneheaded move would be an understatement
T squad? What’s the T stand for? Terrible? Trash? Toilet?
GP2 got T’d up last time they started, so maybe it’s for Technical Foul? Or perhaps Turnover
Sorry, Flagrant Foul
I was gonna say Tranny but I don’t think that applies here. Turnover is a good one!
Cant see why you so dislike the walkons, who helped us to a winning record this year. You would rather we came in last in the conference, as predicted?
I like the walk-ons. I appreciate what they did this year for the program as a whole. They’re probably really good guys.
That doesn’t mean they played well when they started.
Wait. What? I hope he has a heck of a play drawn up! Is it an attempt to give them a chance for redemption for the (frankly horrible) play they exhibited in the Oregon game?
*hears the sound of gum-chewing somewhere*
Is it confirmed or a rumor?
Massari wrote that it’s happening?
It just says Tinkle announced his starters for tomorrow then sent the 5 walk ons for a press conference. Does that mean those 5 are starting or he just sent those 5 to announce the starting lineup for tomorrow? Your guess is as good as mine
Maybe it’s a joke. I can’t believe he’s start those guys again. If he does, he’s Riley 2.0.
Either way, it doesn’t look like they’re taking this tournament very seriously.
Even Riley wouldn’t do that
maybe he’s showing the players that they can be relaxed, loose and have fun while still maintaining a business like approach
It’s very Wayne Tinkle. Nobody wants to win more than he does but he also wants to have fun. It’s the way sports should be
I wish to hell you would quit with the Tinkle/Riley comments. Tinkle would have to seriously crash to actually be on a par with that late career Riley and he sure as hell didnt do that this year. I find your comments really insulting to Tinkle.
I didn’t say he was Riley. You missed the “if”.
He’s talking about the comparisons you always make…you missed that!
You keep puttng Tinkle and Riley in the same sentence. At this point in the game, that is a totally unfair association — dont mince words with me. I didnt like Tinkle starting the walkons, but that doesnt make him a Riley. It might not even have been a mistake, as team motivation is a complex issue, and the coach MIGHT have the manipulation of that motivation in hand better than you.
On the other side, you have already associated Tinkle with Riley when Tinkle has overall done a fantastic job. If Tinkle goes in the toilet in the coming year, what ya gonna do for an insulting reference?? Yer gonna be speechless … lol.
A coach starting walk-ons because it’s a feel good story is Rileyesque. That’s why I wrote IF he is doing it again he’s Rileyesque, because we then have a pattern instead of a one of thing. The logic/deduction there is that if he is not doing starting 5 walkons again, then we still have a one time event, and can’t conclude he’s Riley-esque. If you can’t accept that it’s a you problem. Don’t dare tell me there’s zero Riley in this man after he started 5 walk-ons because it was a neat thing to do. The only question is how much, and so far it’s a little, but a little is too much.
me thinks we got trolled and he sent the walk ons to announce the starting 5. If so, well played coach. Well played
Thanks, I feel better now.
I was sweating almost as much as the coach
Tinkle had some fun with the fans and fans overreacted. I’m glad Tinkle is the head coach.
Spot on! Good analysis.
I’m glad Tinkle is our coach, too, but he almost made me shit late-season Schaftenaar shots!
I think Tinkle is looking for ways to make the last few days of the walk ons experience memorable and found another way to do that for them. Maybe he feels a little guilty that they will all be gone next season.
900 W’s for Casey! Now, that’s a “feelgood” story!
And, Pomeroy has the look of a potential intimidator.
Those pesky Anteaters may tonight join Angry’s Gauchos in the very exclusive “we beat SC” group.
Next weekend, with the opening of PAC12 play for the Beavs will be interesting. So far, against the level of competition we’ve seen this team is a pleasant surprise. If I heard correctly, Jim Wilson said they can get to Omaha by winning under 2/3 of their remaining games.
Front end of the rotation and offense have the talent to make a run deep in the postseason but lack of pitching depth is a big question mark. Heimlich has pitched better lately but a lot of the bullpen arms have been underwhelming. Andrew Moore is very good and Rasmussen has been very solid, beyond those two it’s a lot of questions. Ultimately I think the lack of reliable bullpen arms costs them some games and they finish third in the Pac-12.
If the Beavs finish 3rd (and I think they can) they’ll go to Omaha having gained a lot of experience during the regular season. Omaha?…….all about peaking at the right time, anything is possible.
In addition to your points about front end of rotation and offense, Logan Ice and the D in general are strengths (even with the 3-4 error game over the weekend).
Oregon State Hoops ?@OregonStateMBB
For those asking, @waynetinkle hasn’t announced his starters for tomorrow’s game. We had some fun with the T Squad today. Great group.
Awwwww SHITTTt guess who BACK in the rotation???? I’m ready to ROTATE!!!!!
are you doing drunken donuts in the parking lot? I assume that’s what you mean by rotation since you didn’t travel with the team to Las Vegas
LMFAO! The dorks over at pure hate believe the walk ons are starting tomorrow! And I thought we were easy to troll! They don’t understand it was a joke since no one showed up for OSU during media availability
If it gets much more traction, Tinkle’s gonna have to actually do it! Or… maybe that’s what he wants to do but is making it look like his hand is forced! Oh the intrigue!
the walk ons aren’t starting. But I’m sure the team went to bed tonight after having a good chuckle at our expense. Can’t wait for the post game press conference tomorrow for someone to ask the question!
Beavs getting 3.5, over/under 115. Beavs 59-57
I’m not used to a Beaver Offensive coordinator being this involved with the offense…
Man Fred Lauina got huge.
Beavs lead the nation in HRs. #13 in batting average. #20 in OBP. # in runs scored. #1 in slugging pct.
We’ll see what happens in conference play but nice to see the offense doing some good things early on. Pitching seems to have settled down even though sometimes it takes the entire staff to get through one game.
Good sign that some of the freshman have stepped up. Harrison and Donahue have adjusted nicely to the cooler weather. Rasmussen, Heimlich and Tweedt should steady the rotation for the next couple years.
Clark’s been a nice surprise as have the jc transfers, Eckart, and Nobuch. Casey has used every pitcher on the roster. That’s not something he usually does.
Disappointed that Cary has yet to make an impact. He was probably tied with Harrison for talent in his class. Casey’s giving him chances but I don’t think he’ll get much more in conference play.
Jim Wilson on the HR numbers put up by the Beavs so far:
“Flat seam balls explain why OSU already hit as many HR’s (21) as ’14. Good hitting accounts for Beavers leading country in HR & Slugging %”
I caught a 1240am only pre-pre-game show recently where the host was pointing out the same thing. Other teams are, indeed, showing an increase in HR’s, but not at the rate achieved by the good guys.
I don’t think it’s just that. It’s the size of the guys too. Harrison, Clark and Hendrix are all at 200 or above. If you look at all the top HR hitters in the MLB, they are all well over 200pds.
Yeah, Clark especially looks BIG.
Nobach, Morrison, and Donahue all doing a nice job, and all at less than 180 lbs. Need guys like this to get on base for the 200 lb boppers.
Gretler is just above Cary in BA, but Gretler has really shown good BB IQ on the basepaths and in the field.
Really need to see how the team does vs PAC12 competition, right now it seems like one or two guys going into a slump wouldn’t effect the team the way slumps at the end of last season did.
Cary will be a good hitter at some point, too. Great swing.
Don’t forget Billy King. Right now he just looks like a hitter but I think he’ll come around. I noticed on Tuesday though that after he popped out with RISP and one out he didn’t get another AB.
