21.Apr.2011 Baseball: Washington State @ Oregon State
Due to Easter holiday, the baseball team will be playing games Thursday through Saturday.
Below are my projected starters for the weekend, though they could change.
|04/21||Washington State||Scott Schultz (2-0, 3.21) vs Adam Conley (4-4, 3.05)||5:30 p.m.|
|04/22||Washington State||Sam Gaviglio (6-1, 1.34) vs Chad Arnold (0-3, 7.65)||5:35 p.m.|
|04/23||Washington State||Josh Osich (5-0, 3.38) James Wise (3-4, 4.91)||2:05 p.m.|
As you can tell from the numbers, Washington State's pitching is very weak.
The two most interesting stories in this series are Josh Osich and a possible team let down. Can Osich maintain his stride? The Stanford game was promising. Will the Beavers be bored? I don't sense complacency from this bunch. However, what they must avoid is emotional disinterest now that the "most difficult" part of the season is over. In the Pac-10, every weekend is difficult. Fans don't seem to realize this, assuming the Beavers will easily sweep the series. Hopefully the baseball team has more humility, and a healthy respect for all opponents. I think they do, and I think this will be a good weekend. Then again, I sold my Apple stock yesterday at $342…
