19.Apr.2012 Baseball: UCLA @ Oregon State

Rating: 5.0/5 (1 vote cast)

Huge series this weekend. The season will likely go one of two ways from here.

Some random notes:

UCLA leads the conference by 2.5.  Aka a sweep and the Beavs are in first.

Beavs 6 game winning streak (that some are raving about) has come versus three opponents who average 142 RPI. Nevada being the best of the bunch at 64.

Conforto is second in the nation in RBIs with 51.

Pat Casey is 20-21 all-time versus UCLA.

Saturday's game will be televised on ROOT.

Beavs dropped out of the top 25 on Baseball America. Oregon now ranked #8. Changing of the guard after just a couple years? Too early to conclude, but the gap has closed, and the Ducks are at least as good. Beavs are #35, which is exactly where I slotted them in the pre-season.

Friday's matchup is: Ben Wetzler (4-1, 2.98) vs Plutko (4-2, 3.40). Child and Fry will pitch Saturday/Sunday, but I'm not sure who will throw for UCLA, as I haven't followed the rest of the league too closely this year.

——————————

Beavs haven't exactly played well lately. I'm nervous about this series…I think UCLA has a good chance to sweep. This is a strange team. The season is more than half over and Pat Casey is still unsure who his CF or C are. Team chemistry is okay, but they seem unable to bring all three facets of the game to the park each day. Starting pitching has been the most consistent group of late. Defense (especially up the middle) continues to be poor. There is more to defense than fielding percentage–"range" is more important, but there is no official stat for that (assists/9 innings is probably the best simple measure).

Go Beavs??

    Well said, “The season will likely go one of two ways from here”, other than the erratic offense, bullpen, and fielding the only thing which would make me more nervous would be if the series were in Westwood.

    A bonus……….Jim Wilson is to be part of the Root broadcast team.

    I don’t really follow Duck baseball that closely, were they expected to be this good so far? I thought when they got smacked around by Texas St. they were pretenders, but they’ve bounced back extremely strong. They were not very good last year.

    As a lifelong Dodger fan…

    … I guess the first thing i have to do is complain about the friggin stupid management going away from a history of great pitching combined with awesome defense and catchers with no comparable defensive skills.

    Since I’ve put up with shit that doesn’t remotely resemble my bums for 20 years, why would I expect small ball to come to Corvallis?

    Because it worked for a year or two?

    Come on!

    People want home runs! They want bang for the buck. Just look at the Yanks and all the championships they’ve won in the last decade.

    And there’s nothing special about Nikegon’s baseball team. George Horton is a great coach. That’s all there is to it. He’s not as good as Casey. But he’s damn good.

    At the 1:40 mark Casey tears into pitcher Wilkerson. To me this is a rare glimpse into this kind of player-coach interaction during a game, of any sport. I always want to know what coaches are saying to players in the heat of the moment but most of the time we’re shielded from that.

    At first I didn’t like to see Casey gather the team around only to chew the pitcher out, demeaning him in front of his peers. In the business world that is the quickest way to drive away your workers. But this isn’t business, it’s battle. Maybe Casey’s approach helps the players bond more, like they have a common goal of proving to the coach that they can succeed both individually and as a team.
    Personally, I am motivated when a leader calls me out like Casey did to Wilkerson, but I am in the minority. Most people shrivel in the face of that kind of confrontation. Again, maybe that’s exactly what Casey is trying to find out… are you going to nut-up and perform, or shrivel and fail?
    Regardless of my opinion I love seeing inside the game like this.

      Maybe he called team in to help control himself from what he really wanted to say. That wilkerson outing was rough.

      Maybe you’re right that he wanted the team in to add the pressure on him to speed up whether Riley will “nut up” and fold up.

      Either way, just a Neat video.

        He gave him a participation medal later in the locker room so as to not ruin his self esteem.
        “Nut up” and shrivel should should not be used in the same sentence.

      I don’t see Casey being much different than any other successful coach. Most players do not mind being challenged by their coach, though there is a difference between challenging and really demeaning. If he went personal, then that would be different but he kept it about baseball.

    Actually, Casey knows who his C is. That is Jake Rodriguez. CF looks like it will be Joey Matthews, he’s been getting better at the plate. Casey has been giving Kavin Keyes every opportunity to try and figure things but it hasn’t worked out. Hopefully Ryan Barnes is the permanent first baseman. With Ryan Gorton now being the full time DH it looks like Keyes won’t be getting much time. Really disappointing that he hasn’t been able to figure things out. Had such a great year last year, I thought he would have a monster season, just hasn’t worked out that way. Hopefully he comes back ready to go next year.

    For the offense to be consistent they need guys like Dylan Davis to really step up. He’s been struggling virtually all conference play, he’s a big hitter in the middle of the lineup, if he gets hot the Beavers offense will look a lot better. He’s got Conforto, Dunn, Gorton right in front of him. So, he’ll get a lot of chances to drive in runs, just needs to do it. I think the offense is gonna have a big series. Some guys are gonna break out and have a big series.

    The only concern about the series for me is the bullpen. You have guys like Gorton, Boyd and Bryant who I’m not worried about, but then there’s guys like Schultz, Brocker, Reser that have not been good. Need the starters to go deep to hand it to their setup guys and closer.

        Pen did pitch well. Was giving the offense an opportunity to try and come back. Offense just has a bad approach right now. Also, hitters keep missing their pitch. They’re getting their hanging breaking balls and their fastballs over the plate and pounding it into the ground.

    This game had a lot of suck to it. Ben gets hosed by a few bad bounces (literally), we can’t overcome a pitcher like Plutko, let alone go head to head with pitchers like him. We … just … can’t … make … that … extra … bit …

    It’s almost as if they don’t understand the need to nut up and take the series. Fridays at home are where you announce your presence with authority, and we just don’t do that like we used to. Guys, it’s time to stand and deliver, otherwise the only regional action you’ll see is on ESPN.

    Thanks to the Beavs…. Fall sucks, winter is depressing, CBI notwithstanding, and now even the spring, which we used to own, is becoming a big disappointment.

    In June of 2007, after the second CWS Championship, my Duck friend Mark said to me ‘The only reason the Beavers have a good baseball program is because we don’t have one.” At the time it sounded ridiculous but I’m starting to think he may have been right. From a standing start in four short years they have surpassed us. JB

          I’ve never eaten bear. I wouldn’t know how to respond to that. And my bro-in-law feels some kind of kinship to them. So… since he’s the big hunter I know (and he’s damn good), I don’t think I’ll ever be tasting bear.

          Then there’s that internal voice which says that bear isn’t really on the menu.

          It almost sounds like a reverse Wal-Mart. Americans should be able to pay for products with bear carcasses. That’s what commie subjects love…. Right?

      The stats suggest Wetzler is the 3rd best starter and it makes sense to break up the lefties. Go Fry-Child-Wetzler. Probably makes the most sense.

      I was really high on Fry coming into the season and thought he was a special talent, he’s showing why now. In that Washington game he developed some consistency and has been lights out ever since. Not many hitters are even getting good swings off him.

    Some scores from the conference: Stanford beats ASU 8-7, Arizona beats Washington 4-1, Washington State is beating Oregon 8-3 in the top of the 9th. If that score holds then Arizona will be all alone in first place with Oregon and UCLA tied for second. Cal beats Utah 9-0. Beavers with the win are tied for 5th with Stanford in the conference. If they both win tomorrow then they’ll be just 1 game back of ASU for 4th in the conference. If the Beavers and Cardinal can win tomorrow as well as their series’ next weekend, the matchup at Goss in two weeks will be an enormous series for both teams. Hopefully both teams can take care of business until then. Would love to see a fun, intense and meaningful series.

      A Pat Casey team will never give up on the season. Also, today I saw some fire out of the guys that I haven’t seen a whole lot this year. Different intensity level. Looked like the intensity of last year’s team. They were fired up. The offense is starting to get their act together a little bit. Only 3 runs today but a lot of guys hit the ball really hard, just had some bad luck. Those are gonna start falling in and the Beavers will put up some more runs going forward.

    If there’s anyone out there who can affect change, the story of Daniel Deane has been somewhat unsettling. The kid needs psychotropic drugs (and counseling) to survive. But a system which we all know too well leaves him alone.

    Somebody somewhere has power enough to affect change.

    For the football fans out there. Went to the U of Minnesota spring game yesterday. It was like a fall day in Corvallis. Overcast with a drizzle. Great to see CF again. Yes, we had enough O-linemen to have a real fake game. Sixteen, with two excellent recruits coming in. One was recruited by the Beavs. On the flip side, we have no WR’s. It was brutal watching them drop passes. To make it worse, they were really slow. Playing time available. Enjoy watching Wheaton and company this fall.
    If my two alma maters could combine their rosters, they would have the makings of a pretty good team.

      Be real for a second. His decisions were much better this weekend. He didn’t try to force the issue. That’s what people had an issue with before. He’s a great coach but earlier in the season he made questionable decisions. If you’re being logical there was good reason to have issue with some decisions. I call it like I see it. I’m not going to just be completely fine with whatever decision he makes if I don’t think it’s the right decision. If I think it is a good decision I will say so. If I don’t like it I will say so then too. You act like people were calling him a bad coach.

      True to a degree but small ball does that every once in a while. Some pitchers don’t like fielding the ball and that’s what happens when they do. Always nice to put pressure on the defense and seeing them crumble.

    Where is Duke???? He hasn’t been on the bench. Anyone?

      Rumored that he was booted in another post earlier this week. Confirmation?

    A piece worth reading on Horton’s comments after his ejection on Sunday. http://www.portlandtribune.com/sports/story.php?story_id=133515464842958200

    He sounds a lot like Mike Parker did recently when he felt the umps just wanted to end the game and get comfortable inside.

      I think Horton did what he did to elicit the response he wanted from his team. He’s projecting his team’s attitude before his rant on the umps in order to make it all sound good. Unless you think people who love baseball hate standing on a field in mid-70’s/sunny/slight, cool breeze weather.

      It’s us against them boys! And if you’re not with me, you’re not with us!

    Great series this weekend capped an awesome weekend. Too bad the bats weren’t there for Friday.

    OT items…
    Daniel Deane was arrested again on Thursday (?) for pretty much the same he was arrested for a couple months ago. “My mama always said, “Life is like….””

    Thomas Tyner has had a rough go since last summer. He couldn’t go to the junior Worlds because of hammy issues. He suffered his second or third (2nd and 3rd?) concussion in football, keeping him out for half the season. And he collapsed this weekend in the 100m here in Eugene with another bad hammy. He’s been hurting al spring. I truly feel for the kid. Hope he gets better. But I still think he should concentrate on the one sport in which he has a true gift… if he ever gets a chance to do one or the other.

    And there have been uni rumors with Nebraska supposedly doing something a little radical next season? Is Adidas going batty too? Because now UCLA is talking some stupid uni rumors too.

    I think the Beavs should be allowed to wear any color out there of teams who choose to wear our colors. Well… screw that. I don’t want other teams’ colors. That’s just idiocy.

    Yes… I’m calling all the schools who wear our colors a bunch of idiots unless they traditionally wear those colors already.

    So I would like us to differentiate our colors by going with tuxedo black like the color scheme for the Chicago Bears. Of course, we won’t get anything simple or elegant out of Nike. But one can always wish for something simple and elegant.

      I remember one of the original duck argument for wearing their rival’s color. It was “black (grey, silver, metallic, etc) is a trim color like white.” And I always thought, “ok sure, but yif ou’re whole uni is a the trim color cause then it becomes a main color.” …just can’t admit to jealously over better main colors.

        You know… I would accept that reasoning if it were true. But it’s not. The only black these schools have on any part of their unis or logos is possibly their shoes… and under their eyes.

        Hell… Nikegon stil has no uni with black trim. The only unis they have with black on them are unis with BIG black sections (shoulders, legs, torsos, etc). If they have a uni without a BIG black section on it, they have no black at all… except maybe their shoes… or under their eyes… or highlighting the swooshbag on their helmet.

        I’ve heard that their “argument” is that black is not the beavers official color either. I don’t know if that’s true or not, but my duck friend told me that only orange is the official color.

      Let me guess, more schools are now going to back away from TT due to his potential hammy or concussion issues and magically OSU begins to work its way back into the equation. It’s the “hottest girl in the class no longer wants me so I guess I can now go to the dance with you” syndrome.

        I think the kid is a world class track talent. I also think he can be a very good football player at the next level. But I don’t think he can be both. And I don’t think he can survive a whole college career in football.

        There just aren’t that many kids who can play two sports at the NCAA level well. Tyner needs to give one up, and it should be the one that’s going to kill him rather than the one which might make him millions upon millions for many years.

          I personally know many “pro” track and field athletes that didn’t make millions. All could’ve made millions in football. Just saying. And I’m a huge track fan.

    And for a final OT for all the troglodites out there… RM beat Barca on Saturday, but RM lost to BM in the UEFA semis and Barca lost to Chelsea. Return matches are being played tomorrow and the day after.

    And it will be an awesome spectacle.

    I must admit that the only jerseys I had as a kid/teen were Claudio Gentile, Der Kaiser and Ron Harris… oh… and Mike Scioscia. And I also had one jacket given to me by Tommy Davis and another given to my mom by Cale Yarborough.

    I don’t understand how people can only be fans of a simple game like football, yet think they look down on soccer or racing. Competition played on a rail is competition at its best.

    Loved Jordan Poyer’s attitude comments to the G-T. We need Poyer and a few more cocky leaders to develop a tough identity for the OSU football team regardless of whatever vibe Riley is emitting. Like Poyer says “You need swagger and cockiness. You can be as mean as you want on the field. You have to be violent with your technique!”

      As well as many of the people on this forum get along (myself included) it might result in an eventual fistfight slamadam.
      On the other hand, putting a face and handshake to many of the people here might have the opposite effect.
