Rating: 3.0/5 (2 votes cast)

This space is for Game 2 (6pm Pacific) observations and comments. Pre-game and post-game comments are welcome, too.

The buzz is that Schultz will get the start. I hope it's him or Boyd. Either way, I don't like our odds in this game. Surprise me, Beavs.

    Mike Parker is reporting that Ben Wetzler will start for the Beavers tonight. Interesting choice, but it was going to be no matter who Casey picked.

      Yikes. That’s probably the worst possible choice.

      At least it’ll be over fast, and we won’t have to waste much of our night.

    Another weird thing going on tonight: Oregon State is the home team, so they’ll be batting 2nd, according to both Parker and the online GameTracker. I don’t get why the NCAA does this, it really doesn’t make a whole lot of sense.

    (Can anyone explain why Casey started Wetzler???)

        Andrew has been the better hitter, it hasn’t been close. Parker struggled for much of Pac-10 play. However, since Andrew’s return Parker has been better. Andrew has had some good games but has mostly struggled. Timing has been way off. He can’t catch up to the fastballs right now and is early on the breaking balls, worst place for a hitter. Hopefully Andrew figures things out quickly.

    I said Wetzler would get a start, I’m not surprised he got this start. Casey loves the guy but he’s just bad right now. He’ll be better next year but he shouldn’t have gotten this start. Schultz earned this start but just isn’t gonna get it. Maybe tomorrow? I doubt it though.

    Outfielders need to play closer. Nash was playing so deep and it may have cost the Beavers a run. If he plays normal depth it may have been shallow enough for him to have a good shot to throw the runner out at home plate.

    Whenever there is a runner on third the Beavers seem to tense up and melt down. That at-bat by Carter was awful. Anyone else notice the outfielders for Vandy are in good position and the Beavers’ outfielders are way out of position. I get the Beavers are not used to this place but the coaching staff puts them in bad spots.

    Westlake is a one-man wrecking crew tonight, I have no idea why anybody is still trying to pitch to him, i think that’s 3 home runs for him in one night, which is just ridiculous.

    I think we need to hope that Vandy wins the CWS. We’ll look better then.

        Vanderbilt’s team looks pretty good. Their fans, on the other hand, are lousy.

          they are good, this was supposed to happen. getting swept by UO hurts much more than this, esp. to someone like me who got my Masters there and has to hear from all my UO friends, including a certain hall of fame Charger QB who was my city league basketball and softball team mate when he was an undergrad there. This hurts, but not nearly as much as losing 4 of 5 to UO. Not to mention football and basketball. just awful.

          The ironic thing is that I doubt many of their players are even from Tennesee and the cornholes that root for them have maybe a third of the IQ of the players. I could hear one idiot screaming “pick him off first” over and over and the Beaver on first hardly even had a lead.

        Yes. If you throw it at his knee he’s always gonna swing the bat. Makes no sense.

    We blew it in Game 3 at Washington. Pac-10 title and hosting a Super Regional. Been a good year, but we all really wanted to be in the CWS ths year and open up the new Omaha Stadium. Going to have to come back stronger next year. See you all then for Beavers Baseball.

    I hate the dog pile after making the CWS. That’s not a reason to go crazy with a celebration. It should only happen when you win a national title. The goal is to win a national title not just make the CWS.

      I could even understand a late game rally/come back win, but a game that was essentially in hand the whole night?

    I wasn’t even able to watch either game, though I listened to Friday night’s until the fourth inning. Very odd series from OSU’s perspective, I think. Not at all what I expected. Fortunately for me, I wasn’t expecting OSU to win this weekend and so I’m not bummed that they lost. When I turned off the game on Friday, it was because the game was boring, not frustrating.

    The team did better than I expected to, and I’m glad for that. They had good opportunities to do even better, and didn’t sieze them. Regardless, this season leaves me with a good feeling. And depending on who decides to return from the draft, next season should be even better. I like what a lot of the freshmen showed they’re capable of.

    Thanks for the great discussions, everybody. I’ll see you when basketball starts again.

      Can’t blame you for passing on football but basketball with Craig doesn’t look all that promising either.

        Heh. It’s actually that I don’t enjoy watching football much anymore. It’s hard for me to look past the brain injuries. I’ll probably still watch the Civil War and if OSU goes to a good bowl game, I’ll watch that too.

    So, Omaha is going to be invaded by southern inbreeding not seen since the civil war…not only will I likeley not attend, but I may not even watch if there is not one team from the west. Maybe it is best if the Missouri floods the downtown area.

      I think Cal advances today, so there will be one west team for sure. ASU can also advance today. Other than those two the rest would be southern schools(throwing UVA in there). If Mississippi State advances can you imagine all the inbreds at a possible Vandy-MSU game?

        You know that game 6 degrees of separation?
        It would be like that only with 5 fewer degrees.
