            So, Whiskey is on record calling for a sweep vs Utah, any other optimists out there? Me, I’m hoping for a sweep but expecting 2/3.

            Well it’s actually because we opened a homemade soap store, so I was working on that storefront. But also nothing Beaver related was interesting to me. I know it’s weird that I’d have an obsession with making soap, but I do. It’s a fascinating blend of science and art, which are my two passions.

            It’s online.

            If anyone is interested in artisan soaps shoot me an email. People should know that store bought soap (like zest, dove, etc) are more like detergents since the glycerin is removed from them. There’s a real benefit to good soap, and even though the price is higher, the bars are hard and last longer due to various factors I won’t bore you with. Consider this a public service announcement even if you buy the soap somewhere else.

            I’ve thought about it, but unfortunately I am allergic to something in beer (probably hops). BUT, it is possible to make beer soap, and I am working on a recipe for that, actually.

            Beer makes my lips swell and my stomach churn for hours, sometimes even a day or so. It’s so weird. It always makes me the most unpopular guy at the party, and that experience has served me well here at AB!

            I also developed an allergy to most types of alcohol (some worse than others) back when I was in college. My skin would turn red and hot and I would break out in hives while it was still in my system. Very uncomfortable. I kept at it though, and eventually the symptoms went away. Today I can drink like a champion. (Maybe the Aussie blood took over?)

            Keep trying, Angry!

            If beer won’t work, you could try making your own wine instead. I just bottled a 5 gallon batch of kumquat wine that I made with fruit off my backyard trees, and it came out incredible. Get yourself a steam juicer and a bunch of fruit and see what you can make out of it.

            I’m friends with the brewer at the local micro down here. I asked him if he was going to make a cider and he said he can’t since it’s regulated like wine. But he has made it before and he gave me a super simple recipe for making home made hard cider. You can make it with frozen apple juice concentrate or fresh squeeze your own. He’s a good dude even if he went to aTm.

            check that. Their Sunday starter has the best ERA of the 3 at 4.14. Tonight’s starter has an ERA of almost 7 (how in the fuck do you have your Friday night guy with that high of an ERA????) and Saturday they roll out a guy with an ERA of 5.08. All right handed.

        For those wondering, this would be a red tape bill benefiting the corporatocracy. While you look at it and think that it’s just more gubmint and bad for small businesses and entrepreneurs… you would be totally correct. Big business does not want small business. And the only way they can kill it is by burying new entries in their respective fields. Since pricing new businesses out of the market is illegal, just price them out by making their cost of production more.

        How is this not obvious to all? That’s a serious question. I want to know why you guys don’t see the difference between this and something that is actually liberal. I know you see Feinstein and think that Bechtel must just be the biggest liberal force on this earth.

        You might be wrong… if those dots even make sense to you.

        Is it possible to make a natural, liquid, hand soap? My family is hopeless and leaves the wet soap bar on the edge of the sink where it sits in in its own scummy mess. Thus, I’ve gone to the cute little pump bottles – which I’m sure are nothing more than dish detergent. I have not, however, found a remedy for juice containers returned to the refrigerator with 3 mm of juice in them.

          Yeah it is. The main difference is liquid soap uses potassium hydroxide instead of sodium hydroxide.

          Soap needs to be air dried after each use. Get a dish that allows air to flow under it. This is key. Otherwise they soften and fall apart.

            That’s precisely it. You vote for who you like, not the lesser of two satans. People suffer in groups even though neither group serves them. And that leads to a fear of casting votes for what would seemingly be a sure loser.

            I was almost impressed with Obama until Larry Summers was hired during his first campaign. I was never impressed with Clinton. I did (and still do) love Robert Reich. But he has nothing to do with this conversation… because Clinton never let him have a say. to do with anything so important that it would last. But damn if his little efforts in the little angle he was given didn’t do some real shit for real people.

            Go figure most of Reich’s ideas were Clinton’s broken ’92 campaign promises.

            Yes. It’s called a Dead Peasant policy. Wal Mart is your most common culprit.

            Obviously, corporations have always taken out policies on their mucky mucks. Those do not fall into the peasant category.

    UCLA wins it 11-5 in 17 innings. Currently, ASU, Cal, USC and the Beavs have 9 losses. A Beavs win on Sunday against Utah means the Beavs would end the weekend at least tied for 2nd in the Pac-12 depending on other results. The schedule is favorable. Every game from here on out is meaningful

        at this point with 4 teams with 9 losses, if the Beavs just win, everything will take care of itself. Still two weeks to go but the Beavs are playing well right now. I’d still say hosting a regional is a long shot. Tomorrow withstanding, the upcoming series with Stanford at Sunken Diamond is GINORMOUS. They may be tied for last place but they still have talent and are way more dangerous than Utah. A series win next weekend is a must

        The big O has regularly posted a release from OSU as their way of “covering” Beavs baseball games, additionally, the O copies the Beavs Baseball twitter to provide in game feedback (“Live Updates”) to whatever readers rely on the O for news.

        I doubt the omission/delay in putting up a release from OSU is entirely the fault of Beavs Athletics.

        It’s a little hard to take your assessment as serious when the only O coverage of the game was the OSU Baseball twitter feed supplying updates through the comment section of the preview article. There was an obvious effort made by one side of the story but none made by the storytellers themselves.

They’re really canvassing the country more than the previous staff it feels like, and there have been a ton of offers early compared to previous years.

    I guess I’m kind of ambivalent, college baseball gets a helluva lot more coverage that it did 20 or 30 years ago. I vaguely remember an occasional article about Jim Wilson and his home run exploits but that was about the extent of my knowledge of Beaver baseball, but I remember most of the hoopsters and football players from that era.

    Had an interesting conversation with my sister last night and the subject of Beaver Football came up. She works at the Capitol for Peter Courtney and she witnessed a conversation with Peter and Ed Ray. Peter was asking about the coaching change and why Mike Riley left OSU. Dr. Ray said he was very surprised by his sudden resignation. Dr. Ray said that a couple of days before Riley left for Nebraska they had a meeting with himself, Riley, and BDC and they told Riley they were concerned with the PRECEPTION that Riley and his staff were complacent with the direction of the football program and they were also concerned that they were too busy trying to make everybody “happy” not striving to become better. Sounds like it was a frank discussion but the senior administration had no idea he was going to leave. I got the feeling this was the first time these folks had ever had this type of discussion. Funny that right after it Riley bolts.

    They also talked about GA and the senior administration LOVE LOVE LOVE him. Feel like it has been an A+ hire. What you see is what you get and mediocrity will not be tolerated but they will build a program the right way and not take short cuts.

    I am so glad they finally had the stones to call Riley out and hold him accountable.

    Did it end in a tie? I was at a sons football game. I have seen ties listed in the records. Beavs scored 7 runs in three games against a staff whose ERA is pushing 5, right?

    Does anyone know someone who’s really fast at building concrete retaining coffins? The wall needs to start under ground a few feet (where I just dug up a hedge) and be at least 42″ high above ground. Will need several trucks of concrete.

    Need it done ASAP. Email any leads. Thanks

      Construction is a three legged stool. One leg is quality, one leg is speed and one leg is price. You can get any two of three choices, but not all three. A fast and cheap retaining wall is probably a crappy product.

      You’ll be lucky to line up a contractor for a quick job this time of year. And that’s if you already have a permit. If you’re in Portland, call The Wall. They will give you an honest timeline, and they will stick to it. Anywhere else in the area, go to a Willamette Graystone or any other hardscape retailer and ask them for some referrals.

    Really disappointed with the time limit. We dropped 7 spots in the RPI because Utah decided to call the game even after they had already missed their flight. I’m sorry, but this game had conference title and hosting implications and a ton of money that come along with that. Utah had nothing to lose so I understand their motivation but why we agreed to a time limit is beyond me. Conference games are too important and just purely from a baseball standpoint, there are no ties in baseball – this ain’t soccer.

      Utah most certainly DID NOT call the game per Steve Gress at the GT. The four hour time frame was agreed to before the game started. This is why the game start time was moved up an hour. Last commercial flight out of PDX direct to Salt Lake City was at 6pm. Utah had no choice as there was no other flight home. Baseball teams don’t charter that I’m aware of unless to Omaha and generally more than one school travels on the same charter. Sucks to end in a tie but that’s the way it goes sometimes………

        I don’t work for TSA so I can’t speak logically about flights, cost, arrivals or departures. What I can say is baseball isnt a finite game. When I go to a game my wife often asks when I will return. My retort is the same – when 27 outs are done, unless we are tied. The beautiful part of the game is no time clock or buzzers and while I have seen many games before I cannot lie and say there should ever be a tie

          well according to pac-12 rules, on get away day, when it’s not on TV and the road team travels commercially? There is a time limit. 4 hours. This isn’t the pro’s. These are student athletes (allegedly). Sorry you disagree. It sucks finishing in a tie but for those reasons I’m ok with it. On to Portland on Wednesday

            I understand that they are student athletes. It also states in the PAC-12 rules that…

            (1) Rescheduling Policies.
            (a) Extension of Series.
            A three-day Conference series may be extended by no more than one day in order to accommodate
            a postponed or halted game(s). (8/98)

            This has happened in the past because of weather. I can not remember what year it was though.

            Don’t get me wrong they had their chances to win.

    No conference game should end in a tie. Flights are done and over then grab a room at the Hilton.

      except the players are student athletes and have classes Monday morning. Baseball is not a revenue generating sport. Therefore travel plans are usually commercial or by bus if close enough. Keep spouting ignorance.

      Also, score more than two runs against the shittiest pitching in the Pac-12 and we would not be having this debate. The Beavs are going to make the playoffs and they are not going to Omaha, so it does not matter in the end.

        I think we dodged a bullet. Does anybody think we would have won? It was one of those days offensively. We had plenty of chances and could not execute. Having Harrison bunt was just dumb.

          RE: the bunt play:
          Did anyone else think Mildenberg could have made safely to third if he’d run full out without looking to the infield more than once?
          As commented when it happened, what the heck was he going to see which would effect his actions? I suppose if the ball got away from the Utes he may have had a shot at going home, but c’mon, that’s a real stretch!

          In that situation it seems to me it is “head down and run full out, plan to slide”. Besides, there is a coach at third to do the lookin’ around.

          Really sticks in my craw to have seen him look, at least twice, to the side when running. I’m sure some track expert can correct me if I’m mistaken but I think it cost an out.

          But, as others have said, a win over the Utes shouldn’t come down to this type play, especially with good pitching from Eckert and Church.

    D1 rates Eckert AND Church among the top pitchers for Sunday. Wonder how often that happens.

    Obviously, with the Beavs offense (right now), top pitchers are required.

    They’ve got the Beavs at #19, up from 22 last week.

    It’ll be interesting to see if Gary Andersen’s recruiting approach changes if he can’t land some of these 4 star recruits he’s pursuing. I like the effort on his part to try and upgrade the talent but wonder if he begins focusing his efforts on more 3 star and even 2 star guys ala MR. Probably won’t know for a couple of years as he gains a better understanding of his program. Of course, winning will likely change/help that.
