Civil War baseball, and feel free to go off topic.
not seeing it
let’s get back on topic, FTD!
Anybody going to Govt Mule in Eugene Sept 1? My favorite band to road trip with…show #15 in 12 years.
I hate my job today
I hate your job too!
“Harumph for the Governa!”
You actually have to go to work?
If you were trying to reply to me, it would be best to demonstrate that capacity. That would be work.
I imagine you think because I am mobile you think interweb connectivity is something reserved for…
… K… I don’t need to write this narrative.
You just lost.
Sprained a vulva on that one.
Martinek to start, Ice batting 3rd, Gretler in as DH.
We’ll see if Whoreton goes with the “1 inning per pitcher” approach, might Connie do the same?
UPDATE: Pregame, Casey says may throw “6-7” arms tonight.
Sorry… this is the second reference I’ve seen to “Connie” and I have no idea what it means. Please enlighten me.
Connie Mack the great baseball manger
If you listen to Angry@angry, our head baseball coach is Connie Mack incarnate.
Connie Mack wasn’t a fan of small ball
A fair point in foul waters.
…And Pat Casey isn’t Connie Mack, yet Angry@angry thinks he is.
Ah, I get it. Thanks,
Beavers bats going down without much fight against a pitcher that has only had 6 innings this year so far 🙁
Austin Kelly is atrocious. Martinek wasn’t much better. 4-0 ducks on all of 3 hits. Error and walked in a run. Way to play guys
Kelly can’t throw strikes, Church to come in with sacks juiced and no out in b2.
Parker unusually relaxed, so far,
6-0 now on a 2 run double
No worries. We will bunt our way to victory.
It can be done. In fact… it might be more effective than what we got.
Solid play by ucks second baseman to start the DP which ends the t3, down 7-0
Gretler tags and gets to second on Atwood’s FO to center. Last season Gretler demonstrated some smart baserunning, A bit of a surprise here but worked out fine.
t4, 7-2, one down with runners on 2 and 3…….Nobach to face 4th pitcher for ucks.
UPDATE: Anderson to PH for Nobach
Sounds like a great time for a bunt.
Naw, too predictable.
Church working pretty economically and looking good, as Jack has said.
Despite catching Donahue at third in the 5th, I’m not too impressed with Grebeck’s throws to home tonight. At least twice he has thrown 15+’ up the first base line when coming home.
On to the b6, will Church continue on the mound?
Warren throwing 94 for whoreton, was shown some interest by Beavs coming out of HS. I’m told it was the Beavs who lost interest.
So he’s just like the rest of us?
I know a lose is a lose but out side of one bad inning of baseball the team fought back and made a game of it.
Hip hip hooray.
Did you ever get those socks?
a lose is a lose?
Maybe he means “louse”?
Final 7-6, game ends with runner 90 feet away from tying it up.
Ice the last out, his second K tonight. I believe he has had more K’s in the last 3-4 games than he’d had all season previously. Does he K more often from left side?
If he slumps now, and if KJ can’t step it up………….well, somebody (Anderson, Larnach, ?) is gonna have to get hot, quick.
We got a look at ucks closer. May pay off later.
Thanks for the thread, Angry, it was worth a try (?). I’ll not ask again, not much interest here for discussion during the action.
Ask again, old beav.
It was fun/funny commentary despite the low participation.
YOU GUYS WE FLAT OUT SUCK THIS YEAR STRAIGHT UP! WHAT IS CASEY’S EXCUSE THIS TIME? JESUS CHRIST!
FUCK YOU JUST A BAD GAME!!^^^ ALL CAPS!!!! AHHHHH!!!!
I doubt Jesus Christ was an excuse since nobody with that name ever existed.
I think Jack is being pedantic. He also may be wrong. Growing up in Portland, I knew two different families with the last name of “Christ.” Jesus is a fairly common name in Latino cultures. It would certainly be possible that the intersection of those sets is non-null. Also, any arbitrary person could legally change their name to Jesus Christ. It’s hard to imagine that hasn’t happened at least once. (It would be interesting to note if the middle initial was H.)
Anyway, back to our regularly scheduled inanity.
Houston Beavis is that you???
CAN’T BELIEVE WE LOST TO THE FUCKS!!!!!
… meh… ducks are ducks.
The game was pretty much a preview of what will happen during regionals. Beavs will have to run the table in the postseason otherwise, the backend of the bullpen will have to throw and they can’t be trusted right now.
Luckily, there is only one more weekday game and it’s on a Tuesday.
Don’t know where you got that information. There’s at least two and there will be a third if the postponed game against Portland in Corvallis is rescheduled.
Don’t recall if anyone has yet posted a link to this ESPN article on Conforto: http://espn.go.com/blog/new-york/mets/post/_/id/117433/michael-conforto-the-king-of-hard-hitting
The last three paragraphs quote Conforto as follows:
“When I was really young, a few coaches in Little League told me, ‘You have a special swing,” Conforto said. “I guess I kind of stood out. But when I got older, I was big into football and I only played baseball in the summer. In high school, I’d just swing really hard.
“In college, my swing became more consistent. In college, I took a lot of swings. My head coach, Pat Casey, was more my motivational guy, working on the mental side. Pat Bailey was more my swing guy. There was definitely a learning curve. In fall ball my freshman year, I was awful. I came in and I was supposed to start, but I lost the job. I didn’t start the first three or four games.
“People say you can work on mechanics and things, but the framework and basis of your swing is going to be the same. I kind of believe that, because I’ve seen some video of myself in the Little League World Series and it really does look similar.”
I find myself – on draft day – perusing articles re: “how you know” about a player – the Ryan Leaf/Peyton Manning legend still hasn’t run out of steam. The articles go every which way but I haven’t seen mention of their family backgrounds. Peyton, not only from a famous football family but one that valued a broader base of knowledge and experience. Ryan Leaf was a small town jock with not much else going for him. Some of his character flaws were apparent in high school but he was too important to counsel.
Here is one article with this nugget: http://www.boltsfromtheblue.com/2012/4/23/2965217/nfl-draft-history-chargers-why-ryan-leaf-didnt-work-out
“However, the injuries are not to be overlooked and the poor work by team doctors contributed further. Without them, maybe there’s a coach (one not named Kevin Gilbride or Mike Riley, two of the more clueless NFL head coaches I’ve ever seen) that could get through to Leaf. “
Remember reading an article a few months back suggesting that the Rams were comfortable going forward with Mannion as the potential starter this year. The trade to #1 suggests otherwise. Plus, they want to make a splash in the LA and a #1 pick at QB will help them get attention.
Don’t take this as me knock on Mannion. I wish him the best of luck, but I don’t think he’ll ever be a sustained starter in the NFL and this is business after all.

Obviously they just want to get the best blocker for Sean
Every coach thinks they are the one who can reign in a wild but extremely talented player. That’s why you see so many coaches defend guys with less than sterling reputations. Say the standard bs “he’s a good kid, he had some bad luck or he made a bad decision but that’s not who he is”.
Geoff goes #1 in the draft, I really didn’t get to watch many games of him playing. Is he really a #1 draft pick or is this a down year? He didn’t seem like he was amazing just a typical pac12 qb. What am I missing?
Trust me, you’re not the only one who isn’t seeing it. Overrated.
Plus you have to consider their trade to move up and take him. In that context, seems like a big (long?) Reach…
I think he could be really good and don’t think it’s a bad pick.
He COULD be. But usually #1 picks are reserved for guy who are going to make an immediate impact. I don’t see that happening with Goff, to me he’s in the same boat as Mannion. They are projects that have the pieces, they just need to complete the puzzle. I’m not down on him, I just didn’t see the #1 pick thing.
Hah. He is so much better than Mannion.
I love Mannion… But Goff is far better player.
#1 picks are not always immediate impacts. Mariota and the Titans were picking #1 again, so not exactly an immediate impact. But you’d still be happy to have him as he projects as a good to great player down the road
I could see the #1 pick, if you’re a team that earned the first pick based on prior season, and in the QB market this year. It’s the trading of all the picks to get there and select him that seems like a reach.
Who’s Geoff? Hostetler? Garcia? George?
Cal has this QB who could be pretty dang good in the NFL
You’re a Beav.
You couldn’t come up with Garner?
As long as Goff just hands off to Gurley he’ll be fine for this year. The team has ZERO receiving talent though so he won’t start to make many strides until that improves
I wouldn’t even start Goff. I’d give him a year in system before trotting him out there to be broken by very large people. QB in LA is going to be a body bag position this fall.
Ole Miss player admitted to NFL reporters that he took money from coaches. It happens everywhere, but Ole Miss probably going to be burned to the ground by the NCAA.
Wonder if Mageo now regrets his decision to leave. Ole miss is going to get fucked.
Who cares. He wasn’t a player.
The same ole miss player posted a bong picture 10 mins before the draft.
He didn’t do it. Someone with a bone to pick did it for him.
Remind me not to end up on that shit list.
It’s hard to believe any NFL team except for Cleveland didn’t already know about that video. Miami looks really good in the front office right now.
I feel like it’s pretty obvious ole miss must have started paying players a few years ago. They were an SEC doormat, and then all of a sudden 4 of the top 20 players flipped to them on signing day when, and I don’t think they were in a few of their top 5’s. Smelled rotten from the get go.
Then again their fan game day attire is so darn dapper, maybe that’s what made Nkmendiche flip last minute….
I like stories like this. Will do more to help police cheating programs than any amount of NCAA oversight.
Apparently a Bama coach was caught cheating recently too. Shocking…
as we all already know, major violations are occurring on a daily basis amongst the SEC and other powers (yes, Oregon, ACC Oklahoma, tOSU, Texas, etc, we are calling you out). Until another entity steps in and takes down the NCAA for laying in the same bed with the cheaters, status quo it will be. In the case of Ole Miss, the NCAA will have to penalize them and shake their heads saying how could you fuck this up so bad? Why did you not cover your tracks better? Cash is KING and there’s no paper trail! Here’s your penalty. Try to cheat better next time
Whiskey: “Why did you not cover your tracks better? Cash is KING and there’s no paper trail! Here’s your penalty. Try to cheat better next time.”
Reminds me of a sports-illustrated article on Chip Kelly/Willie “Will” Lyles, where the author admonished Kelly for not using cash….couldn’t believe he wrote him a check.
It’s because they have cowbells.
And if it’s not them who has the cowbells, I don’t care.
Live stream of VtV construction:
A construction worker walking around doing nothing. Now that’s must see TV.
You’d think it was an odot cam.
Can’t wait for the paint drying phase.
Can we talk about the color of the paint first?
Hopefully Tartan. It’s the only way we’d generate enough excitement to get the full remodel done.
learned that Seth Collin’s sister is on the track team. Another reason why he would want to return.
And she’s pretty good, too.
Does she hurdle?
Yes. That’s her event.
That was anti-climactic.
Posted here some time back that she was on JoeBeav and was very well spoken, almost as intelligent/interesting as some of the gals on the FINAL FOUR basketball team.
