15.Mar.2012 Baseball: Oregon State @ Cal

VN:F [1.9.22_1171]
Rating: 0.0/5 (0 votes cast)

 

The game has been moved to noon (from 2:30) due to inclement weather.

The matchup is Ben Wetzler (3-0, 4.70) vs Justin Jones (2-1, 4.05).

 

Beavs are 26-31 all-time at Cal. They swept there last year, but only 7 guys remain on the roster. Cal is 11-4 so far this year and have a good team. This will be a tough series if the pitching doesn't show up.

    We’ll win the series. In fact, I think we buckle down this week.

    How can Casey think that Conforto and Davis aren’t the bee’s knees?

    Then again, I sure didn’t think they would amount to anything. Gee golly and neat-o! I didn’t even know who they were. Heck-o-mighty… I thought since they weren’t drafted in the first two rounds that they didn’t tell every scout possible that they were coming to OSU come hell or high water. They must have been completely missed by those pro scout types.

    Gee golly yeah….

    Dontcha know?

        Do these confuse you?

        Because I could have fun with just that.

        I sometimes think in three or four planes. Maybe this is one of those times.

        Baseball is pretty solid on stats and numbers. I don’t think I want to devolve the game beyond the statistical fantasy I created when I was ten.

        Or did I just bore the population again?

        I promise that’s anything but true in real life.

        I think I like to walk on the beach and make someone somewhere think highly of me…

        What was I saying?

    I think the Beavers take 2 of 3 but all the games will be tight. Hopefully Wetzler can build off last Friday’s win start and develop consistency and be that top of the rotation guy. He has the stuff, just needs consistency. I’m interested to see how Child and Fry do. Child has been really good his last two starts, a little step up in competition in Cal, hopefully he keeps up the good pitching and be a good #2/#3 guy for the Beavers. He has an electric fastball, he has a chance to be really good this season. Loved what I saw out of Jace Fry his last start, I assume his pitch count will be around 75-80 this start, hopefully they can get 5-6 innings out of him and not have to bring in the bullpen too soon. He’s got a great arm, I expect big things from him.

    Conforto and Davis have been awesome so far. If they continue to have a solid approach at the plate they will put up some big numbers. Hard to believe they’re just freshman. Those guys in a couple years are going to be insane. Once Keyes gets going this offense is going to score a lot of runs. Keyes is too good of a hitter to continue struggling like he is. He will figure things out. When he gets hot and you put him with Smith, Conforto, Davis, Dunn, Rodriguez and Barnes, the offense is gonna look so damn good.

    First time in a while you can really say 1-8 in the order the Beavers are really stacked with great average hitters and a bunch of hitters with pop. It adds a dynamic that Casey simply hasn’t had the last few years. This team has the ability to string together big innings at any time. It is great to see.

    Let’s see the Beavers get off to a good start in conference play!

      I so much agree with Conforto and Davis. Those two have been alll that since before the season. Then we add Smith, Jake, and somebody (?) in the outfield….

      What do we have to lose?

      I have more…. I just don’t need to say more.

      Good rundown, GB90 (BB).
      Two thoughts here,
      1) All hitters encounter slumps and it will be so with Conforto and Davis. There will be times when 1-8 are hitting for good avg, but sometime this season guys like Keyes, Dunn, etc will have to pick up the slack.
      2) Recently Casey phrased a concept in a way I hadn’t heard, “Defense and Pitching win games, hitting just determines by how much”

But they are an insidious and un-American group of complete ass-hats whose ideas seem to permeate weak and fearful minds with ease. Sometimes I just wish I was as brain dead as the tea-monkeys or the birthers. Life would be so much easier if I couldn’t comprehend anything rational.

    Just read the O-live columns on the girls victory in the WNIT and Casey’s comments about going into the Cal series. I was struck by the common thread…..these two give specific examples of the good AND bad in the performance by their teams. There is very little of the “we’ve got to try to find our identity” type of pap we get from others.

    Went to both Thursday NCAA sessions at the Rose Garden and one thing is apparent, the Beavs need a good center to go anywhere in the tournament next year. Burton can’t compete with how athletic most of the centers are.
    Also, Indiana has so much depth on the team that playing only 6 or 7 will not be enough to go very deep.
    We know what we got returning, but if we don’t get additional help from the recruits coming in, it may be an early exit next year.
    It only takes 2-3 good players to turn a program around and CR needs to deliver.

    Wetzler retires Cal in order. 8 innings, 4 strikeouts, 6 hits and 2 runs. Really stepped up today. I wonder what his pitch count is, would like to see him finish this game off and save all the guys in the bullpen for game 2.

    Dunn makes a smart move to get a runner rounding second, Rodgriguez digs out a low pitch to throw out a runner at third. These guys are keeping their heads in the game, they both have made some mistakes, but not for lack of smarts or effort. What a contrast to the lack of focus and effort often seen on the FB field.

      Don’t sell yourself short angry, you can find fault in everything OSU and usually do. Some day you will realize this is college not MLB and the Beaver opponents commit several errors as well. Today Cal made errors and bonehead baserunning. Last week after one game you thought OSU were a bottom feeder in the Pac 12 and Wetzler was pond scum. You so let the moment cloud the big picture. But I’m sure you will come back with some witty comment like Jack thinking you have won the day.

        OSU is an athletics disaster, so there are obvious faults.
        I never said OSU’s baseball team were bottom feeders (picked them 35th in the preseason and said they could move higher). Wetzler hasn’t won me over. Dude was bad last year, and bad most of this year. Sure you’re not the one missing the bigger picture? I could make idiotic comments about how and why you’re too positive and nothing more than a vapid cheerleader.
