02.Jun.2012 Baseball: Oregon State @ LSU

Rating: 5.0/5 (3 votes cast)

A 2-1 pitcher's dual is nice and all, but let's be honest, yesterday's lack of offense cannot make us feel good about today's chances. Nice to see Tony Bryant pitch some quality ball. The guy is a master at changing speeds and hitting location. I think his troubles this year are overstated, and the stats the result of a few bad outings. I'd be giving him the ball in the 9th.

Hopefully Danny Hayes is back in the lineup today. They'll need his bat. LSU pitcher Kevin Gausman is a projected top 5 pick.

Regarding the rotation, Child will go today versus a heavy RH LSU lineup. Wetzler will go Sunday, but that's not a great matchup for OSU (I would have preferred Wetzler in Game 1 and either Fry or Child in game 2).

If you're jonesing for some pregame drama, check out this LSU forum where the ever-classy-toothless-cousin-fuckers "tiger bait" OSU players and then fans. I recommend playing Dueling Banjos while reading to help set the mood. Someone (Michael Conforto, is that really you?) mentions angrybeavs on there!

    I think the site is really called “TigerBate” because its just one gigantic LSU circle jerk going on over there. They do have some funny and creative gifs from time to time though. They’re worth checking out. Osu fans will especially like the Chip Kelly ones from last year.

    We got 2 hit y UCLA and backed it up with 11 hits in the next game. The offense can bounce back.

    I don’t understand why they think our guys should be scared by a 4 run ‘outburst’ by the LSU offense? Is that a lot for them? Have we not scored that many runs all season or something?

      Lets hope for a big win today though. Playing with a loss after today could make that goal really tough. I am a lot more nervous than most around here. LSU regularly fields great baseball teams, not to mention their ace today. Throughout the season we have left several guys on base and that is something we absolutely can’t do today. I think we probably need about six runs to get it done today. Can we get that many against their ace?

          Why are you nervous about Wetzler? I am only nervous if we win. By all accounts, Belmont should be ULM today. If we lose and play Belmont, I think Wetzler can do it. If we win, then we get a short reprieve before playing LSU. I am nervous about Wetzler v LSU but that is probably better than Starr v LSU (which is what would likely happen if we lose and have to use Wetzler v Belmont).

            I should have clarified. I am nervous about Wetzler vs LSU. I think he’d be fine versus Belmont.
            I’d almost rather see Schultz vs LSU than Wetzler or Starr. Honestly, I thought Wetzler would pitch yesterday’s game and Fry would pitch today. That would have been a better matchup.

            Wow, I am shocked by that. I thought Belmont was significantly better than ULM.

            And Angry, you like Fry better than Child v LSU? I generally am a person that would side with talent over matchups but the media seems to really be hyping Child as a matchup v LSU because he is a righty and their lineup is a righty. What do you think? I don’t think I know enough about baseball to make a call.

            I just like Fry’s poise and confidence. He’s a real pitcher, and mature for his age. I think he is a guy who can beat LSU. I am not confident Wetzler can do that. He gets flustered more easily. Child is solid, and I’m fine with him pitching today. It wouldn’t matter to me if Child/Fry or Fry/Child pitched vs LSU. The order doesn’t matter. I think I read somewhere that Wetzler was ill yesterday? Is that true? If that’s true then it explains this rotation…

            Oops, was already posted lol. But yeah, strangely I’m really confident in Child tonight. He’s had some big pitching performances against UCLA and Arizona this year. Even though that was at Goss, I still think he’ll pitch big today. He’s an ideal guy to go against LSU’s offense. He keeps the ball down and gets a lot of ground balls. He doesn’t struggle with walks like Wetzler and Fry do. The decision to start Child makes a lot of sense. Rodriguez and Hayes are back in the lineup tonight. Offense should be fine and if Child pitches well, the Beavers will win. I like OSU’s chances tonight despite going against Gausman.

            If the Beavers win, look out for ULM tomorrow against LSU. ULM is playing well and LSU was fortunate they didn’t lose to them last night. LSU could easily feel a ton of pressure in that spot. They were a “lock” to go to Omaha, being in the loser’s bracket against a team who has no pressure and is expected to lose, that is not a spot LSU wants to be in. So, a Beavers win tonight would be enormous. If they win tonight, I think they win the regional.

        They’re down 3. It is far from over. And Conforto is on a level that Keyes has never been at. Highly doubt he’ll have some big sophomore slump.

        don’t you think choke is a bit harsh? LSU spent most of the season in the top three or four. i don’t think it’s likely either, but if they can get a couple runners on for conforto or hayes there’s definitely still hope.

          You are right about the choke thing. LSU is the higher seed but I just feel like they are choking in terms of actually scoring runners who that were in scoring position. But does anyone honestly believe that we can win. Objectively evaluating, I don’t think this team will win. I certainly wouldn’t bet anything I cared about on them tonight. And I am sure that supports the idea of the winner of this game winning the regional.
