If the weather forecast is correct, it's dubious they play any baseball Friday or Saturday. 100% chance of rain the next two days, and .8 inches of rain. Sunday into Monday looks a little better, so maybe they can squeeze some action in then.

Matchups:

  • (Wetzler 4-0, 3.58) vs. (West 4-1, 2.12)
  • (Child 2-1, 1.86) vs. (Davis 2-0, 1.00)
  • (Fry 1-1, 5.14) vs. (Voth 4-0, 4.18)

Here's to hoping Pat Casey has a better series.

Go Beavs.

    Weather is not looking promising in Corvallis today. I’ve seen no official word, but the field has got to be soaked with no letting up expected today.

    I hope to see Boyd used as more than a lefty, situational specialist. He’s too good for that.

        Yes. Sweep would be great but winning the series is the goal. If they sweep I would ecstatic but if they don’t sweep it won’t bother me as long as they win 2 of 3

    I really wish the Beavers approach at the plate was a little different. Making a pitch work is fine but if you get a fastball down the middle some aggressiveness would be nice. They get too passive at the plate.

    With so many guys slumping it is hard to score runs. Tyler Smith is really the only guy hitting well as of late. Outside of the RBI single Davis has been slumping for a while, Dunn is in a mini slump, Keyes has been slumping all season, Barnes in a little bit of a slump, Rodriguez is slumping. Beavers just aren’t getting a ton of guys on base.

    dawgs add a run on a play where Davis appeared to make a diving catch but the ball came out of his glove. They get the batter hung up between 1st and 2nd to get out of the inning. On to the B10 and Beavs need 2 to tie.

      The Beavers pitching staff allowed 1 run through 9 innings. That should be enough to get the win. Offense stunk. Also, two runs scored on what looked like plays the defense could have made. Rodriguez had a tough play but it looked like a play that could have been made. Hard to tell on Davis’ slide, not a great camera angle but he might have been able to make the play. Offense just isn’t getting it done right now and that’s the reason they lost. In the 5-8 innings the last 4 games the offense has scored a total of 2 runs. That will never get it done. The guys need to pick it up.

        Agree with all that but if Bryant comes in and shuts them down you pick up a junk run in the 10th and win the game. Just don’t trust the bullpen this year except for Boyd.

    Only saw the first three innings of game one, sounds like the BP blew it again. People banging on the offense, but that UW pitcher had impressive stats coming in so maybe he was pretty good? He looked good what I saw early.

      He was good but wasn’t as good as he usually is as far as sharpness goes. Offense put together a lot of weak at-bats, fared the same against the bullpen. Just didn’t feel like the offense had the right mindset at the plate all game. Bullpen took the L but I didn’t feel the ‘Pen pitched all that poorly.

      I was really big on him before the season started but he hasn’t really gotten much of a chance because of how well Smith and Rodriguez were playing while he was suspended. Hopefully he can get some consistent at-bats because it’s tough to be effective if you’re only getting to hit once or twice a week.

    Mark Emmert: Momentum seems to be for 8 team Playoff

    http://www.timesfreepress.com/news/2012/apr/01/emmert-sees-momentum-toward-fbs-playoff/

    I am pretty excited about this. I think 8 teams is the perfect number and it will be a much smoother transition if a playoff is implemented with 8 teams from the start.

      You know the more I think about it, I don’t think an 8 team playoff is good. I could possibly see a Plus one model. Speaking of wear and tear on the bodies, do you suppose that alll the shoulder issues that we are seeing from our defensive players could be a direct correlation to always having to go with the undersized recruit that they can’t hold up to the grind of a pac12 schedule, and not having enough depth to play additional players has hurt us to stay healthy?

      I am not sure our program would be able to hold up in a season and through a playoff run. The extended playoff would only benefit the major programs who have the most depth and highest recruits. I was looking at the Defensive Back depth chart in the paper today, yikes! Behind Poyer we have Keynan Parker who is 5-11 178 and hasn’t played much at all in four years, Brian Watkins another Senior who has seen limited action is 5-9 185. The right corner is better with Rashaad Reynolds and Sean Martin (I think he got hurt last year, right?) then there is Ryan Handford whose never played. Safety has Watkins and Murphy, both who are 6-2 and 6-3 215, but have not excelled at the position. Backups are Wideout and Quarterback prospects Tyrequek zimmerman 5-11 206 and Peter Ashton 6-1 206 who have limited ST action. I can see why we went after more DB’s in this class. But my question is whether going smaller to get speed has been having an adverse effect on the health of the entire position?

        We probably would have edged Virginia Tech and Michael Vick in an 8 team Playoff in the Fiesta Bowl Year. OSU would have microscopic odds to make a 4 team national playoff. With 8 teams we stand a real shot on a hot year where we are the 2nd Pac-12 team in. The team that makes that could then have a shot. That 2000 team had the pieces to win it all but we were a little lucky to get to a BCS Bowl as it was because of the tight loss against UW. The Pac-12 and Erickson fought for it knowing it was a special year and a special team for OSU. 8 teams is just enough to get a team like that in, which deserves it, and atleast keeps us interested in many more years as maybe being on the cusp of possibly making it.

        We just need a coach who doesn’t make excuses and can handle putting on a Spring Game like the other 99% of the major conference schools.

        Ever hear about a player named about a player named Darryl Green? How about the Rogers brothers? I guess they couldn’t play because they are too small. Yep, little guy middle linebackers like London Fletcher do break down after 15 year careers. The longer season favors the guys in shape, not the sloths. Different sport but Chris Wondolowski has led the MSL in scoring the last two years (as a slow wimpy guy) primarily because of superior conditioning. Zimmerman is a very good player and will be a great Beaver eventually. Ashton, they do not yet know what to do with him. But he is a multitalented. It is unfortunate that Coach Riley is so unimaginative that he can’t figure out how to put the kid in a position to contribute by matching his ability to do many things against opponents that are only good at one thing.

Beavers will be looking good at the end of the year if they just win every series from this point on. Hopefully they do that.

        Not too good, I would say. ASU’s offense is so-so on the road but good at home. They have great starting pitching. Very slight edge in starting pitching to ASU. I think this series is gonna come down to the bullpens. I think ASU’s bullpen is better than OSU’s right now. If OSU’s ‘Pen steps up they can win the series but if not ASU will obviously take the series. I can’t see either team sweeping. All 3 games should be tight, I expect 3 one run games. Hopefully the Beavers can come out on top.
