08.Apr.2011 Baseball: Arizona State @ Oregon State

Rating: 5.0/5 (3 votes cast)

Here's a breakdown of my projected pitching matchups for the weekend.

Date Opponent Pitchers Time (PT)
04/08 Arizona State Sam Gaviglio (5-1. 1.05) vs Brady Rodgers (4-1) 5:35 p.m.
04/09 Arizona State Josh Osich (4-0. 3.00) vs Kramer Champlin (4-1) 1:05 p.m.
04/10 Arizona State Ben Wetzler(4-1, 4.15) vs Jake Barrett (3-2) 1:05 p.m.

Some numbers…

Team stats (Batting):

ASU: .324, 14, 154 .401/.466

OSU: .271, 12, 170, .387/.378

Team era favors OSU (2.66 vs 3.01). However, in-conference ASU has pitched to a 1.50 era, while OSU is at 4.50. Both teams are poor fielders @ .973 and .976, with ASU having the slight edge.

The new bats seem to be affecting ASU, as they only have 14hrs. This was a neutralizing force versus Arizona, and could be the Beaver's best friend this season.

Obviously the big blow is losing our two best mashers in Susac and Rodriguez. Their loss takes some air out of the series, and while I left the Arizona series impressed with OSU's fight and chemistry, I'm not yet a buyer. Arizona State takes two of three.

    We are certainly going to miss those guys, but a week ago I would have been ok with us being 3-3 in our first two series of the PAC 10 (especially with the 18-0 drubbing in the opener). The PAC 10 is deep and we are starting with 2 of the top teams. I would love to see us come away with this series, but we need to take it one game at a time. Sam needs to get back on track today and then let this team fight for another one over the weekend

    I want to take two of three, but I do not see it happening without Susac.

    The second part to not having Susac (besides missing his bat) is that Berberet will have to play the whole series at C. He had some long stretches last year, so hopefully three games is short enough for him to bear. I think they both call nice (but different) games with Berberet playing better defense. It’s sort of like comparing Yeager to Scioscia.

    A lot of our poor numbers were compiled in last Friday’s game. If that remains an anomaly, our stats will more honestly reflect a better team. ASU proved last week that Duck High’s bats are anemic, while we proved that the Zonies could hit, and we could overcome ourselves. I think it’s just a good match-up all around, and I’m glad we have them here this year and this early.

    I’ve always loved Danny Hayes, and he hasn’t let me down this year. Jones has come back a little stiff with the bat, but look for him to step it up. I think the biggest surprise last week was Jared Norris coming back on fire. If he continues to play like that, he can finally lock down RF. I think it’s obvious that Stamps needs to be a little more patient at the plate. If he just concentrates on putting the ball in play, he increases his efficiency immensely. Bell seems to have upped his game nicely, and I’m really impressed with a very young Keyes.

    I guess no Rodriguez means we’re looking for Dunn to step it up. He just needs to make key plays at key moments. I don’t see Smith doing anything yet. And I don’t think Acosta has done anything in the field yet.

    What worries me most is missing the one guy who solidifies the OF and the top of the order. Where’s my Garrett Nash? Out for two more weeks? That (and missing Jake’s glove) scares me more than anything. Miller has been more up than down, but he just has a knack for doing the wrong thing at just the wrong moment. At least his fielding has been solid thus far.

    I think this one comes down to our starters. I hope more than I expect, but I can see anything happening this weekend. We can sweep, and we can be swept. ASU’s bats are nothing like they were last year, so I think our throwers have a good opportunity to keep them in check. They’re going to come out aggressive and look to control the game from the front. But I don’t see them running away with any games early. I think Sam pulls out the first game, and I think Josh wills the team to a game two win. I still love Wetzler’s skills, but he needs to put two solid games together.

    I fear all the excitement about Taylor Starr as well. I think we have proven arms to end games in a 1+ set-up/closer with Boyd and a solid closer in Bryant. I would rather have Starr prove himself in middle relief before we just throw him into the closer role. I understand wanting to instill confidence in a kid by giving him a chance. But I also think it goes both ways. And the worst case scenario is that confidence is lost along with a game.

    Missing Susac really isn’t as big of a blow as you might think. Berberet has more RBI’s and the same home run total, so they won’t really be missing him much there. Berberet is the better defensive catcher and I don’t think we will see passed balls that hurt the pitchers. Danny Hayes I think, will have a big series.

    Honestly, if Susac had gone out, let’s say a month ago, the Beavers would be in trouble, but that has changed. Keyes, Dunn and Barnes are really developing and becoming good hitters. They have helped bring depth to the lineup, and they along with Carter Bell, were the main reason the offense so much in the last two games in the Arizona series. If them and Carter Bell continue to produce, the Beavers will be a really tough team to beat.

    I must say, I have been really impressed with Jared Norris the last few weeks. His problem the last three years at OSU has been his lack of aggressiveness. He seemed too passive and let mistake go for strikes. He has taken an incredible amount of called third strikes down the middle of the plate the last few years. That has changed recently. He’s still patient, but if you throw him a ball down the middle of the plate he’s looking to crush it. That was what has always been missing. He looks to have a different mentality at the plate now and it’s really paying off. If they have him producing along with the others I mentioned, this offense will be tremendous.

    When Susac is back, even when he’s struggling with his swing, I don’t think it will hurt the team too much because the offense has depth and can pick him up. Wouldn’t surprise me if Pat Casey plays Susac at DH for a while.

    Btw Angry, Rodriguez isn’t the Beavers second best masher. Susac, Hayes and Berberet are the top three. Rodriguez is fourth but with Barnes coming on he could surpass Rodriguez.

    As far as this series goes, I have the Beavers taking two of three with a possibility for a sweep. ASU’s best shot for a win is game three vs Ben Wetzler. I think Gaviglio will be motivated and will dominate the Sun Devils. I see him going 8 innings and allowing 1 run on 4 hits type of outings for him. I also see Osich throwing his best game as a Beaver. He pitched well vs the Wildcats, considering pitching in Tucson is never easy. I think he might overpower the Sun Devils. Ben Wetzler is a unknown. He’s kind of up and down and I think he might struggle. He’s young so you never know. If the Beavers are going for a sweep on Sunday they could win. Even though Wetzler could struggle, Sun Devils might help him out. They could panic, feeling the pressure and take themselves out of the game by doing too much. Avoiding the sweep on the road can be tough.

    I think they could play Acosta in the series as a DH and let him mash. He’s a pretty good hitter and hasn’t had much time in a while. Would like to see how he does.

    A sweep over the Devils would be huge. It could vault the Beavers to first place and move them up on the regional hosts. I think it’s big for the Beavers to be a regional host and be paired with the #5,6,7 or 8 national seed in a potential super regional matchup. Much easier to reach Omaha then.

      Should have been more clear. With Berberet, Hayes, Keyes, Dunn, Barnes and Bell the Beavers can make up what they’re losing with Susac. Just so there’s no confusion.

        I don’t understand this argument. If this were true, why would a MLB club every buy a great player? Just buy five okay players instead. It reminds me of the cartoon, Voltron.

        Anyway, when it’s the bottom of 9th, and Casey has to send up Hayes, Keyes, or Dunn instead of Susac you’ll understand why it’s a big deal. A feared hitter influenced the entire lineup (e.g. things like pitch selection of the guys in front of him). I expect the Beavers BB and BA to spike downward.

          If a QB hangs a WR out over the middle infront of Cam Collins this year he is going to kill him. 15 plays into the scrimmage he has already destroyed Jovan Stevenson and WR#84 with two monster hits.

    Tyler Smith closes gap to 2-1 on an RBI single then runs the Beavers out of the inning. Did a great thing then a dumb thing. I guess I can’t hate on the guy too much for the baserunning blunder. He did drive in the run that was sorely needed. Hopefully Gaviglio shuts out ASU and keeps it a 2-1 game.

    I hate that I’ve lost the pulse of this team…I thought for sure they’d lose the Arizona series, and now it looks like I will be wrong about this series. For the OOC schedule I was spot on, but now I’m lost. Guess if they win this series I’ll have to rethink this and admit they’re better than I thought. Not that I ever thought they were bad, but I didn’t believe they were good enough to win series versus elite teams in the conference.

    I’m almost afraid to buy in…I have a feeling as soon as I do they’ll start losing.

    Glad you guys are almost buying in. I was probably the only one of us who was buying in from the beginning haha I could see the potential, they were just young. They’re really coming along and have a ton of heart and are really mentally tough. Tonight was a perfect example of that. Past Beaver teams may have just folded and allowed this to turn into a long losing streak. This squad fought and scrapped and found a way to win against a really good pitcher. That shows a lot of growth. If they can win the series and maybe sweep the Sun Devils, it will make the confidence of this team sky high.

    Should be interesting to see how Osich and Wetzler do the next two days. Glad tomorrow’s game is on tv finally.

    C’mon guys, get on the bandwagon full time lol

      The best way to put it is that I thought they’d go 0-3 or 1-2 versus elite teams and go 2-1 versus teams like Oregon, USC, etc. Then rely on their OCC schedule to get to the 35 win mark and be on the bubble with a good record/bad RPI. If they’re winning series versus the Arizona schools it forces reevaluation. What they’re showing is that chemistry means a lot. This year’s chemistry is better (this was noticeable from game 1) than last years. I loved seeing Stamps make the diving catch and all the guys rally around him like kids. Things like that go a long way.

      I guess the one reason I am not completely sold is that the sample versus elite teams is still small, and also they’ve been winning with clutch, timely hitting, which is difficult to do for long stretches.

      I’m going to wait until after Stanford to decide if this team is elite, as we’ll have faced 3 of the 4 best teams in the conference (minus UCLAs pitching–curious to see how we do versus that staff as well).

        I would say it’s difficult to continually get clutch timely hits if it’s the same guys getting them. It’s spread out throughout the lineup, so it could continue. I would say if the Beavers win the ASU series and the Stanford series that the team will be as confident as can be and will continue to roll. It will tell a lot about this team if they can do that. I personally don’t think they will win the Stanford series because Stanford is damn good and it’s on the road, but if they do win, that will show they are the real deal.

        They also could have Jake Rodriguez back for that Stanford series, that would be a big addition. Curious to see how he would do in that series.

      Shows you how bad Oregon is. Washington is an awful team right now and Oregon’s inability to score just 1 run late cost them a game. I don’t see them turning it around soon. Will be a very long season for them.

    6-2 ASU, after a 3run HR…that after a bunch of Beaver mental blunders.

    This is why I have a hard time buying in completely.

    We need a 2nd solid starter and more consistency. Osich is unreliable. Wetzler is a rookie, so he is what he is…I can’t ask much more than what he’s given. The #2 pitching slot is a problem. My opinion is Boyd should be moved there…figure out the pen through trial and error. Maybe Dunn, Bryant, or Starr can take over as closer. Osich should be moved to middle/long relief.

      Don’t understand the thought process of putting Boyd as a starter. He’s done nothing to suggest he’d be a really good starting pitcher. To me he’s just a relief pitcher. He’s a fantastic relief pitcher but I’m not sure he’ll be a fantastic starter.

        Because he was excellent in his two career starts:

        Maine (3/21/2010) 6 1/3 innings, 4 hits 1 run, W
        UC Riverside (3/4/2010) 6 2/3 innings, 7k, W

        And was also slated to be a starter this year before Casey decided, for whatever reason (probably a thin pen) to go with Booser/Wetzler and now Osich/Wetzler.

        He’s actually done nothing to suggest he wouldn’t be a really good starter.

            Your argument makes no sense. What did Osich do against PAC-10 opponents to “suggest he’d be really a good starter”?

            Boyd has dominated whomever he’s faced, including Pac-10 hitters (as a reliever) and went deep/pitched excellent versus two OOC opponents in the two games he started. Yet, you’re saying there’s no reason to think he’d be a good starter.

            Rethink this one.

            When did I say Osich is a good starter? He has the potential to be a really good one but right now he’s not. He’s up and down and lacks consistency, I haven’t denied that. Osich did have a pretty good outing against a good hitting Arizona team though. Boyd had two good starts last year, but this season when pitching beyond two innings hasn’t been so good. He cruises for two innings and then Tony Bryant has had to bail him out. I’m not saying Boyd couldn’t be a good starting pitcher but he hasn’t shown this year he could go 5 innings or longer.

It gives them more confidence, especially that now they know they can beat one of the best teams in the nation without their best player. That bolds well come postseason time.

        I don’t like being wrong, but this is the good type of being wrong.
        Also, this is the type of comment that makes running a site pretty ridiculous. Nobody says a word when I predict 10 straight series correctly, but there’s always someone waiting to point out when I’m wrong. I’ll deal with it, but it works both ways, so you’ll hear from me when they start to choke. There’s still half a season left, so that is inevitable.

        The bottom line is they’re probably not as great as they look right now, but they’re a good team that will be in the post-season. They lack a #2 starter, and that is a huge issue that isn’t going away.

          Buck up, Angry. When you are wrong it is noteworthy and is commented upon, when you are right it is expected.
          Thanks for running this site.

    Can someone explain why Stanford is considered an elite team? They beat Rice, but that team is down this year, having lost series to Dallas Baptist, UCF, and Louisiana-Lafayette. Take away Rice and Stanford has lost series with the other good teams (Texas and Vanderbilt) they’ve played. Right now they’re beating up on the lower half of the Pac-10 and padding numbers, but I don’t see their ranking as being justified or battle-tested. The computers love them. I must be missing something.

    I didn’t get to listen to the game today and I’ve just now read Lindsey Schnell’s write-up. Can someone explain this to me: “OSU (23-7, 4-1) tied it up in the eighth when Tyler Smith — OSU’s last batter — singled to score Kavin Keyes.” How was he the last batter if he singled and a baserunner scored? I can only assume there was another baserunner who was then thrown out?

      I can’t remember how that inning ended, but I don’t think anyone was thrown out. That’s a weird detail for her to include–who really cares if he was the last better?

      I think that she meant that Smith is the last batter in the order.

    Angry,

    you’re not expected to be right nor wrong. You’re expected to give your opinion, observations, knowledge, and see if it matches our thoughts, opinions, and observations. It just happens that you’re right or spot on with a
    lot of topics. This is also a perfect example of why the pac-12 needs their own network to get a fantastic idea of the conference as a whole, vs. Reading what we can find on the internet.

    also, you seem more of a pecimist that hopes he’s wrong(but doesn’t think he is wrong) than an optimist who hopes for the best and tries to look ahead for brighter days when shit hits the fan.

      Don’t you feel at games that you are often hit with shit? Oh wait, Pankey is gone, that is just a feeling from the past.

    Angry, you may be wrong but often so are the talking heads of ESPN on their weekly predictions. This site provides one of the best (if not the) forums for discussion and sports talk around. Keep up the good work and the articulate thoughts, it is always nice to read and contribue to these discussions. Much better than half of the ESPN product.

    How much of OSU’s success in this series do you think can be attributed to ASU being ineligible for post-season play?

    It’s probably tough for the Sun Devils to find any purpose outside individual statistics and draft positioning.

      It has nothing to do with that at all. The truth is there is a good chance ASU plays in a regional. The committee isn’t likely to have a decision by selection monday, so they are playing expecting to play in a regional. They have to make their final ruling by the final day of the regular season for them not to be in the postseason. I will be pretty surprised if they don’t play in the postseason. I’m okay with them playing in the postseason because that gives the conference another team in the postseason.

        The appeal is on May 16th, and Selection Monday is May 30th.

        The appeals committee can change an infractions committee ruling only if a school can prove it was clearly contrary to the evidence, did not break NCAA rules (which ASU admits to in the baseball case), there was a procedural error or the penalty was excessive and is an abuse of discretion.

        They’re going to have a hard time proving any of that since ASU already admitted guilt and the NCAA had enough evidence to impose stiff penalty.

        But, yeah, it is possible (though not probable) they play in the post season. The late appeal looks strategic more than anything…basically, hold it late so the kids don’t give up on this season. If they thought they had a shot at winning the appeal wouldn’t they hold it after May 30th and just serve the ban next season?? That would be wise since they won’t be as good next year.

    Oregon lost again to Washington. Wow they’re bad. I didn’t even think they would continue to be this bad. I thought they were bad but they’re reaching a new level of bad

    Baseball grandslam for my teams yesterday. Mets, A’s and Beavers win, Ducks lose. My coffee never tasted better. Could the same results possibly be duplicated today?

      Same, except I prefer the Giants to the A’s…Giants are my west coast team, Mets from back east.
      Yankees won, unfortunately, so it wasn’t the perfect day, but about as close as one gets following these teams.

        Only 1 out of 2 for me. The Beavers won but the Mariners lost. Then again, hoping the Mariners win with their embarrassing offense is too much to ask

        I have always been Mets for the NL and A’s for the AL. Some of those A’s/Giants interleague games have a nasty atmosphere, the fans do not like each other!
