    Howard walks with one out b7, Jefferies, at 95 pitches, is about at his usual limit, let’s see how much farther he can go.
    EDIT: Dang! Jefferies not too tired to make a very nice play on that come backer, 2 outs, Howard on 2nd.
    And now Jefferies is pulled.

      You said it, Big Mo with 11 K’s, 61 strikes out of 88TP, and has faced the minimum due to two DP’s.
      Little Mo having the hand evaluated next week, may be available for post season as originally hoped.

    Still hoping with a dominating sweep of Cal, Oregon State can host a regional. Any idea what other factors would work in our favor. If we sweep Cal, at minimum we deserve the easiest #2 setup in the nation. Pac-12 is most dominating conference for baseball titles over the last decade yet we have to lose hosting rights so SEC and ACC can have baked in advantage. Was rooting for the Pac-16 just so we could regularly stomp those guys in head to head matchups. As is they play us as little as possible.

      Possible factors in the Beavs favor for being a host if they can win tomorrow: 1-Finish second in the PAC, 2-RPI under 30, 3-Corvallis/Goss!, 4-Casey!

          I can’t see ASSU sweeping SC on the road. One more win tomorrow should be good enough to lock down 2nd place. Will it be good enough to host a regional? I don’t know but the beavs will certainly be in the discussion. We’ll find out Monday morning.

    “Hamilton says Pat Casey sends the Beavers’ hitters to the plate with one word in their mind: NOPE. Stands for Nuts on PlatE.”

    “In other words, Beavers hitters put manhood on plate and challenge pitcher to beat them. Love it. Sums up the spirit and intensity of Casey”

            The Memphis series loss was inevitable even with Matthews. Grizz were a bad match up. Blazers are way too soft and need to get more physical players to compete in the ever tough western conference. But at least your team has made the playoffs. Mine has sunk so far into oblivion everyone else is laughing at them. One more year of suckness than Kobe is off the books. Yes, I’m a lakers fan. Have been since I was little in the 1980’s. It’s a long story but the jist of it is my father was a referee in the Eugene area and reffed some games where there was this kid who was head and shoulders better than everyone else. He went on to BYU and eventually a long NBA career. Dude’s name was Danny Ainge. My father was a celtics fan because of him. To spite him I started rooting for Magic and the lakers when those two teams seemed to meet every year in the finals. Back to reality after that stroll down amnesia lane. Houston/GS series is the finals. Neither Cantlanta or Cleveland would beat either team in a 7 game series. The Cavs maybe if they were healthy. No Love and Irving hurt, not happening. I’m pulling for GS. They’re a fun team to watch

            NBA is a war of attrition. Healthiest team at the end wins. Agree Portland needs more toughness.
            Who do you want the Lakers to grab at #2? Okafor? Would be tough to pass up.

            they really don’t need Okafor or the dude from Kentucky IMO. They picked up PF Julius Randle last draft who played in one game before breaking his leg. They need a shooting guard more than anything IMO. Nick Young is way too streaky and personally I don’t care for his attitude. Jordan Clarkson proved he can play the point this season and he should continue to improve. I am unaware right now of any decent shooting guards high in the draft. I’m not sold on D’Angelo Russell from tOSU. Whoever they decide to draft, they need to let next year go as well and build a team around that pick, Randle and Clarkson. Kobe is done. Let him ride out the last year of his contract, then go after some mid level free agents to surround the aforementioned 3.

            After the fact, I might attempt to trade down and get another first round pick and take RJ Hunter from Georgia St. But if they don’t, yes hope Minny takes the guy from KY and get Okafor. Lakers don’t need another PF.

            You will or won’t believe this. There is another beaver site that I was banned from years ago. I had this discussion when the Blazers had the No. 2 pick several years ago. Durant or Oden? Whoever the Sonics don’t take. I said then, the Blazers don’t need either. What they needed was a point guard. I would trade down and take Mike Conley Jr. They all laughed at me. What happens a few years later? Blazers get that PG they desperately needed in Damian Lillard. And Conley Jr has worked out pretty well for the Grizz. But what do I know?

            I’m not sold on Towns for a top ten pick. I don’t think he’ll be as good as Joel Przybilla. That’s a pretty high bar for a big. Towns won’t meet it.

            Kobe was fried five years ago… and has always been a boring ball-hog. Okafor is smooth. Guards are a dime a dozen. Once again, the Lakers end up with a top pick… same old same old… except that Jerry is running another team now… one that will win a championship this year.

            It was before the lottery. The Lakers don’t do it often, but they end up with a top pick which gets them a top player or two.

            But you’re right. These last few years have been different. They actually just suck. Prior top picks were lucky and got them transcendent players. Boston got some of them as well back in the 80’s. It’s scary to think of how good they might have been if Bias didn’t die. And San Antonio wins zero championships if David Robinson doesn’t miss a season due to injury.

            That’s the same old same old of which I speak. Traditional teams just seem to have a little more luck than the rest.

    Rumor is there is a chance Corvallis could host a regional but Oregon State would be a #2 seed. Seems like a fair and appropriate solution for where this team deserves to land. Check out the Baseball America story below.

    http://www.baseballamerica.com/college/projected-field-64-may-19/

    Otherwise it looks like the Champagne Regional but with a sweep of California and dominating them last night OSU deserves what Baseball America is predicting. Hope the Pac-12 shows some flex for Oregon State and pushes for this like a premier baseball power conference deserves.

Funny, no mention of the Quacks anywhere in this national article, yet The Oregonian still hasn’t given up either. Even after the loss last night, the “win the series” theory is still being pumped out there. I hope UCLA wins tonight and shuts this up.

        I disagree because we are a #2 seed which is the worse we will do. For the article to be assuming 4 straight wins to add to the 10 win or 10 of 11 streak we were already on and then only dish out a #2 seed seems unlikely as most pundits rightly figured it would give us a #1 seed and host. Most likely this scenario was based on winning 3 of 4 because then it fits like a glove.

        Probably they thought we would beat Oregon and win 2 of 3 over Cal for the series win. How we get those 3 wins shouldn’t be much of a factor and especially since Cal has the better team. Hosting in Corvallis as a #2 with UCSB a #1 fits the teams accomplishments this year if we sweep Cal.

    I think Corvallis is going to be selected as a host. 11-0 skunking of Cal so far in the first 2 games of the series and still time to add more. The Northwest region of the country ought to and I believe will earn the host selection. Pack Goss tomorrow because somwhere around the 6th inning there could be a large roar when the regional hosts are officially announced.

    Appears the final host will come down to Cal State Fullerton and Oregon State with UCSB blowing their chance this weekend with a terrible series loss. If that’s the case then the Beavers should have the advantage. Beavers are 8-5 vs RPI top 50 with a chance to make it 9-5 tomorrow. Fullerton is 8-12. Beavers are 17-12 vs RPI top 100 and Fullerton is 17-16. The Beavers should have upper hand with their body of work but no clue if they’ll actually get rewarded

Casey would be a great AD and the timing with Brosius is right. Casey can give 6 or 7 outstanding years as the Beavers AD while he still has plenty of energy and will get to be the man who finishes Reser into a Pac-12 gem of a venue. I trust he will have all the major sports competing amongst the best and Brosius is a worthy successor to carry the flame and tradition of proud Beaver Baseball forward.

    Ducks beating UCLA in extra innings just raised OSU’s RPI and IMHO our odds of hosting a regional are now 66% or better. We absolutely destroyed Cal the last two games and it was a loud statement when it mattered most.

Can’t see the Pac-12 having its #2 team denied hosting in consecutive years. Scott is the nation’s highest paid commissioner and how many teams does the SEC have hosting? Four? If he doesn’t fight hard enough for a 2nd team again then his days will be numbered. I think OSU gets the hosting bid.

      Correct. It’s easy to follow the box scores and rankings, without the frustration of watching Gabe Clark try to hit a ball. It works for me. If you can watch that guy, then do it. Once the post-season begins I’ll watch despite Clark.

      Not watching also frees up 3 hours to do more productive things, so there’s that, too.

            angry@angry, maybe the issue you have originates with you, and you’re definition of a “beaver fan”. I might sometimes take issue with someone who reaches a point where they can’t watch their team anymore, but when I say that person is no longer a fan, that’s my projection. When I’m a fan of a team, I watch every game I can, all the way through, even if my team is getting stomped or winning a blow out. Not every other fan does this, but it doesn’t make them less of a fan.

            Yeah, Bend, I just don’t want to make sports a large % of my life, because it’s vicarious rather than active living. I’d rather play baseball than watch someone else play it, for example.

            I’d guess I want the Beavs to win a baseball title just as much as you and angry@angry. I just don’t feel any obligation as a fan. I feel the opposite: like they have the obligation to put out a product that makes me/people want to watch. And Gabe Clark (and Hamilton, let’s not forget him) does not make me want to watch.

    Larry Scott’s balls are on the line tonight. I think OSU will earn the host bid with Corvallis being named a Regional. Can’t imagine how Scott could look any of the university presidents in the eye earning what he does when the SEC is expected to earn 4 host sites. Only getting 2 should be bad enough for disparity. A single host is laughable for a conference as strong as the Pac-12. Having that happen in consecutive years should start serious discussions about Scott being let go. Can’t have all the pomp without the circumstance.

      It goes in cycles. We hosted 3 regionals in 2013 and 4 in 2012. Last year, UW only has itself to blame, dropping their last 2 series. Looking at RPI, nobody but UCLA deserves to host. I still think we will host, but it has nothing to do with Larry Scott if we don’t.

        Oregon State finished on a war path winning their final 6 conference series so we are red hot when it matters most. We also are likely to get Morrison back during the Regional and the committee should consider that in addition to how well Corvallis would shine as a host site. Banners will be overflowing as usual and the conference has most titles in last decade tied with the SEC. All that bodes in the Beavers favor for Corvallis to be selected to host a Regional.

      Between being selected as either the 15th or 16th host site I don’t care. I will say that if Oregon State played CSF 10 times on a neutral field I feel quite confident we would beat them 7 or 8 times out of the 10. To me the odds are good OSU will be named a Regional host. Pac-12 is too good not to reward the Beavers’ very strong finish of their regular season.

      I still doubt that will be enough for them to sneak in. Texas won the Big-12 tournament today with a record of 29-25. They weren’t getting in otherwise. Meechicken did the same in the B1G tournament. So bids are being eaten up by conference tournament winners that wouldn’t have gotten in otherwise. Still waiting to see updated RPI since their game just ended. My bet is they wind up as one of the first four out. If they played in the ACC or SEC, they’d be in

          If Scott wants to underperform the Big West in successfully pitching his teams then he can get paid Big West level pay instead of being the highest paid commissioner. He failed in his Pac-16 bid his first year which was the only time he was interesting. Now with that over he is completely predictable and not doing anything new so why are we paying him like he is the world’s greatest innovator? Getting no consideration as a major power conference and being overlooked for a 2nd Big West team that lost its final home series to a nobody is an embarrassment for this conference.

      Beavers got pretty much jobbed. UCSB had one series win over an RPI top 50 team all season and their only RPI top 50 wins were midweek games against USC’s 4th and 5th starters. They just lost a series to the 249th team in the RPI this past weekend. Beavers had better resume and played in far superior league. No way you can justify UCSB hosting over OSU especially at a site that’s nowhere near Santa Barbara.

      True, the game didn’t mean much, but I’m not certain Parker’s blood pressure dropped at all. While he didn’t seem close to a heart attack each time the Beavs came up short, he still drove me crazy with his continual harping on the “unimportance” of the game and his hopes for the hosting slot.

      I hope you’re right about the CWS and that Angry is right about the chip (log) which should be on the shoulders of the Beavs. It’s gonna be interesting to see how these guys respond, pretty sure Casey will do his part re: motivation and strategy; but it’s a balancing act with a young team.

      As for the return of Morrison for the post season, is it realistic to think he’ll resume his hitting pace? That is the only thing I see separating him from Hamilton…they both have made good and bad plays on D.

        I am nervous about that hitting pace as well. Hopefully Beavs start off so dominant early that Casey has some fiddle room to find the hot bats etc. I started watching the game once it finally came on P12 network. But once realizing the utter unimportance of this game, and seeing the lineup changes reflecting that point, I took my kid to the park instead. I didn’t hear Parker at all, he’s fun when Beavs are winning, but annoying when we are losing.

    It appears the committee placed a high value on RPI as the top 14 RPI teams are all hosting. The two that aren’t? UCSB (20th) and Fullerton (25th).

    Also an interesting tweet from Steve Gress at the Gazette Times. I had completely forgotten but OSU originally had Missouri State on the schedule coming to Corvallis for 3 games. But a scheduling conflict either forced it to be moved to another year or cancelled completely. I am unsure which. But had that series actually happened (Missouri St 7th in RPI) more than likely the Beavs are hosting. Grambling was a last minute fill in to replace them. Removing a low RPI team and replacing them with a high RPI = Bad JuJu. Them’s the breaks when you play on the left coast sadly

    Speaking of logs (n chips), hopefully the entire team genuinely feels like Hamilton sounds in this quote from the G-T article:
    “We’re excited,” said sophomore shortstop Caleb Hamilton. “It’s just another opportunity for this team to prove people wrong. Wherever we go we’re going to work our butts off and take it one game at a time.”

    No matter what draw the beavs get I honestly don’t expect them to win a regional on the road. This is a young team. They certainly could win a regional though. The talent is there but the experience isn’t. Especially the pitching staff save for Andrew Moore. Next year however, I would expect bigger and better things and this team to contend. Here’s a list of draft eligible juniors and departing seniors……………….

    Gabe Clark – Jr (draft eligible)
    Dane Lund Sr (out of eligibility)
    Andrew Moore Jr (draft eligible)
    Michael Howard Sr (out of eligibility)
    Travis Eckert Jr (draft eligible)
    Clay Bauer Sr (out of eligibility)
    Austin Woodward Jr (draft eligible)
    Zack Reser Sr (out of eligibility)
    Jeff Hendrix Jr (draft eligible)
    Joe Jansen Jr (draft eligible)

    I see 3 names there that would be great to have return. Moore, Hendrix and Eckert (for his starting experience). The rest? You be the judge. Add in the incoming class and next year this team should be very good again.

      They were 59th in the RPI then. Wouldn’t exactly say they were snubbed. Oregon getting in is something I don’t completely hate. Their competition on the bubble wasn’t great and Oregon had some big series wins against UCSB on the road and against USC and Oregon State. If the Beavers don’t give the lead late in game 1 of their series and don’t blow the 6 run lead in game 3 of the series, Oregon doesn’t get in. I know a lot didn’t want them to make it but their resume stacked up well against bubble teams.

        Casey was pretty heated at the time. I thought back then the magic mark was at least 30 wins. If I remember correctly his argument was they had series wins over some good teams like Georgia and over #2 ASU in conference play, but he conveniently forgot about loss to Utah Valley and losing a series to last place Wazzu. UCLA made it in during one of those years with something like a 30-26 record. Must have had a decent RPI.

    Thanks for nothing NCAA committee. Sends OSU to Dallas Baptist (No. 1 RPI). Now DBU is overrated, but even if OSU can win this regional, they would potentially have to travel to Miami if I”m reading the bracket right. And yet the AZ and So Cal schools have short trips to LA, Fullerton, and UCSB. O-Live had an interesting article on a schedule change that might have hurt OSU’s RPI. Last fall they moved the cal poly series to a different weekend and had to cancel against Missouri St. Grambling St. was the replacement team.

    Pac 12 is again getting some love – 6 teams get in, but only 1 host. These schools just need to go out and win to earn respect. FSU, LSU, Miami just show up and get all kinds love.

    I feel pretty good about the Beavers winning this regional. Texas won the big 12 tourney but they aren’t very good. Dallas Baptist haven’t taken a series vs a real team of substance all year and Beavers have better pitching. I think the Beavers win the first 2 games and in the game to advance Eckert will start but will be a very quick hook if he isn’t sharp and they’ll go to Tweedt. Not an idea location but the pure draw of teams is pretty good. I like the Beavers to go 3-0 in the regional and advance to play Miami in the Supers

    Trever Morrison being back on Friday would be huge. He has a checkup on Wednesday. Beavs would be able to slide Hamilton back to third and Morrison back at shortstop and the offense will be much better with not having Gretler in the lineup. I’d also like to see Gillette get some more time. Him and Cary should platoon in RF. Both are significantly better than Michael Howard offensively.

It’s mostly oregon fans complaining about how many beaver fans are just jealous – ironically I didn’t see a single comment from a beaver fan saying they don’t deserve it. Perhaps they were just drowned out.

    One comment really made me shake my head – some kid saying Corvallis is too small to get big time athletes, while big cities like Eugene have everything an athlete wants. Sad that some people consider Eugene a big city.

      It’s really unfortunate they got lucky and got handed the season series. We take care of em in either game 1 at hole or game 5 in Corvo and they’re on the outside looking in and we’re hosting.

      Honestly, I’m not really too worried about baseball. They don’t really have a strong formula for success, just a lot of money. They made their team out of spite, pumped a ton of money in, and that made them decent from the jump. I don’t ever see them ever being elite or really being a threat to win it though. Baseball gods won’t let that happen.

      What, precisely, does an athlete want? There are exactly two good restaurants in this town… three if you go out to Walterville… where I don’t usually see any athletes. Is it because we have two Wal-Marts and a Target?

      Or is it because we have a ton more strip clubs, marijuana dispensaries and tattoo parlors? Since Corvallis doesn’t have a strip club, athletes don’t want to go there.

          There’s Belly and Izakaya Meiji. Nothing else rises above national food chain restaurant level. I don’t know what it is with gastro-pubs in Oregon, but they seem to all have the same fare. It’s mostly decent stuff. But every time a new one opens it gets the same rave reviews… and tastes the same as the last one… usually devoid of salt. If I try the next “best burger in town” from the next newest brew pub, I can guarantee it tastes like every other pub burger.

          Forget Chinese in this town. Kung Fu Bistro is okay, but only because it’s the only non-chain which has consistently decent food. There are a couple Italian places slightly better than an Olive Garden trip. BBQ? Ha! Steak? Right. And can anyone tell me why Dari Mart has the second best B&G in town?

            It’s nowhere near consistent. You could get TV dinner quality one night and pretty decent another. I don’t usually bother with menus at Chinese places. Any good one will have an off-menu menu. Teriyaki Boy and Ocean Sky are also decent.

            There is no great Indian in town. At least Evergreen is authentic, if also not consistent (Corvallis suffers the same fate there). Springfield has the best Thai over on 5th and Main. Kamitori is the only place I’ll eat sushi in this town. Mame is decent for budget sushi… I guess. For some reason, all the Vietnamese, Japanese and Thai places taste like Korean food. And having Korean dishes on all their menus doesn’t help dissuade me from feeling that way.

            And ugh! Hawai’ian food! Is it too much to ask for some real Huli Huli around here? Soaking chunks of chicken in sweet teriyaki is not Huli Huli. It’s dry chicken that needs a ton more teriyaki to be palatable. Rack it, broast it, baste it, huli (turn) it. It’s also sad that the lunch lady in elementary school knew how to make sticky rice, but Hawai’ian restaurants around here have no clue.

            There’s also a mom & pop Phillipino place out by the Goodwill over in Springfield that’s pretty good. Their menu changes a bunch, which makes for fresh stuff. I’m always looking for good lumpia and fried pork belly.

            I blame the palates of the people in this town. They wouldn’t know great Asian food if it smacked them in the forehead and dribbled spicy, tangy goodness into their mouths. If people around here don’t get it coated in cornstarch and sugar and served with a 2:1 ratio of meat to veg, then forget it. The Safeway up on 122nd has better Chinese than you can find in this town. But that was a decade ago when I knew the chef who was working there. Then again, it’s not fair comparing Eugene to Portland in any way. So I’ll stop doing that now.

            I find it rather sad that the best Lao within an hour of me is the Woodsman. That should tell you what I think of the food around here.

    This maybe a blessing in disguise. No pressure on this team to do anything. They are young enough to not know that they should have pressure. If Rassmusen can give us quality start that would be a valuable assest. The bullpen is a weakness, however if the bats come alive they could be really a difference maker.

      I feel pretty good about Tweedt as either a long reliever or #4 starter.

      Forecast for Dallas looks like low to mid 80’s with higher humidity and chance of scattered T-storms. Is that favorable for OSU?

    Sorry if posted already. Quick’s article on Pat Casey this season. It’s actually a pretty good read

    Casey may have tipped his hand when he said of Morrison, “It’d be great to have him back, even as a defender,” … “We could at least pinch hit.”

    Maybe bring Gabe in to PH for Hamilton late and use Morrison to finish things out? Naw!

    Probably tomorrow. I was hoping to get more info from you guys or the media. I haven’t watched any of the opponents. Has anyone? Give me a scouting report.

    PAC and Beav’s get hosed. Who did Casey piss off? I will have to pinch my nose and hope the Iowa Hogeyes prevail.
