    Dylan Davis needs to be more selective at the plate. Has swung at a couple bad pitches for groundouts so far. Needs to be more patient and swing at better pitches when he gets ahead in the count or on first pitches.

        Squaring around early on a bunt to get the infielders to begin coming in, then pulling it back at the last minute and slapping the ball. It’s basically to hit a ball on a line at charging infielders so they have no time to react to it and can get it past them pretty easily.

          Ummm… I don’t think it means that. To butcher boy a pitch is to swing down on it in a chopping manner. It doesn’t necessarily have to be a bunt. It’s just the motion of the swing involved.

          Ichiro is a master of the butcher boy… and many other swings.

          That show bunt is called a slug bunt last I knew. It can be completed with a butcher boy for a dribbler, or the batter can pull back and slam a high fastball for a double like Fernando used to do.

            It is meant to chop down on the ball and hit past the charging infielders, it has many different names. Ichiro did not do the butcher boy. Slapping hits and butcher boy are not the same thing. Butcher boy is to show a bunt initially, pull it back and chop down at the ball to get it by the infielders. I don’t believe Ichiro ever did this in MLB.

            That’s a slug bunt.

            Unless the slang changes over time and terminology changes with it and I’m just late to the party.

            When Valenzuela would show bunt then pull back and swing away, that was not a butcher boy. That was a slug bunt which he usually drove for a double. And you know how round that boy was.

            Ichiro did whatever it took to get his bat on the ball. Some were slaps. Some were cricket digs. Some were butcher boys. He was so good early in his career that he would start on what he thought was a fastball then chop his swing to catch a change up that was dropping in front of him.

            The swing is also a common swing for batting practice since it over-emphasizes the importance of driving down on the ball.

            It can, but not if done right. The butcher boy is meant to meet the ball on the downward swing and drive it forward, not down.

            -or-

            Is that a kind of cycle?

    Whilst waiting for today’s baseball games and especially for haters and loathers of the despicable Lynn Snyder, the track team is in Salem – taking baby steps into full recovery after being left for dead. Two women are in Seattle at the Dempsey indoor – a good high jumper and a 13,000 meters runner. And Ryan Cope, freshman football player is going to run hurdles in Salem this evening. It’s all on the OSU website. As if that isn’t enough, the softball team is playing today and they’ve done well so far.

      Wilson said something very provocative after Friday’s game. Called it a “system win,” by which he means OSU is a team that is resilient, expects to win, is well-coached, and finds a way. All of the qualities that are absent in the hoops squad and too rare on the gridiron.

His swing was looking good and he just missed a pitch last time up. Having a guy hitting like Dylan Davis is behind him forces pitchers to give him more pitches to hit

    Beavers might sweep, but Bryant at least seems to offer some competition. I remember a series against Hartford (I think a couple of years ago) and it was brutal. All their pitchers could do was throw mid-80’s fastballs over the middle of the plate on almost every pitch. I think SDSU was targeted as the test and Beaver pitching dominated.

    OT – From Wilner’s blog:
    “The NCAA punished Saint Mary’s on Friday for recruiting violations and hit coach Randy Bennett with a failure to monitor/failure to promote an atmosphere of compliance — severe charges that will be a lasting stain on his reputation.”

    “Failure to promote an atmosphere of compliance”? How might this figure into the Ucks situation? Is this charge part of a defined list, or just the NCAA working “on the fly”?

    • Jack says:

      Rating: 0 (from 0 votes)

      It’s just part of the descriptive meaning for the FTM violation. FTM is usually leveled against a school/coach/admin when the players are doing something without their knowledge. In the case of Bennett, it was a former assistant coach who violated rules.

      When you see this kind of penalty you’ll also hear about how the coach never knew, and the NCAA is just being mean and blah blah blah. But in the rules it says the buck stops with the coach. If his underlings or players do something wrong, it’s assumed that the coach didn’t take the time to mentor them on compliance.

      Penalties will depend on how obvious the violation was and how experienced the violator might be. A frosh who walks onto campus and screws up on his first day will barely turn the NCAA’s head. When a school has a history of many frosh screwing up on the first day year after year (Boise State) then it gets a little more serious. When it’s an assistant coach, it’s more serious still.

      When it gets to the point that many assistants are violating many rules or many players are openly breaking many rules, then even if the coach has no idea these things are going on the school just has no control over the situation. That’s when the NCAA comes down with LOIC.

      Bennett has been farting around in the WCC for too long anyway. Few is the big daddy who’s not going anywhere in that league, so it’s time for Bennett to make some noise elsewhere.

      I guess I wonder what satisfaction there was in heckling pitchers that were clearly not doing well anyway. Pitchers on a team that came all the way across the country knowing full well they would probably get their butts kicked, a team which performed well early on in the series. A team which probably didn’t have a single fan in the stands. I guess if Beav fans want to be like the ucks in obnoxiousness . , , but it doesn’t seem like a good medium in which to compete. I’ll save my heckling for a Pac 12 game.

        That’s fair enough.

        I guess on one side you have people who revel in fandom no matter what form it takes. They would say what he did is just fine because he’s just a fan who is working over the opposition and has knowledge enough to help his own side.

        Since baseball is infinitely more complex than football, it would be strange if Banker told us that we as fans had no right to do the same as he does when he’s a fan. Actually, that had nothing to do with baseball’s complexity. It only had to do with Banker’s hypocrisy.

        It is what it is.

    Baseball America out with it’s poll, Beavs move up to #4. Pac12 has 6 teams in top 25.

    The Horton effect continues as the ucks come in at #15 with 3 losses; they are the highest ranked 3 loss team and seven teams ranked behind them have 2 or less losses.
    Strength of schedule?…a bit; Horton effect?…also a bit.
    Uncle Phil effect?…a bit.
    Poll writers looking at a limited sample?…quite a bit.

      I like Agnew, especially his off-field character and how he has represented the university. But alas, fumble-itis was his downfall. He’ll probably do just fine with his new team.
      He doesn’t lose a year of eligibility either correct?

        Too bad. Saw it coming when he didn’t play in the bowl game. Too much talent to ride the pine, but it would have been nice to have him as a backup who really knows the system. I find it interesting how a fumble by a RB is an unforgivable sin, but MR tolerates QB’s throwing picks right and left.
        Jerry Kill, the coach at Minn, turned Southern Ill. into a lower division power when the were at the brink of eliminating football. Good luck to Malcom.

          I feel bad for him, he comes in and wins the starting job as a true freshman, has a monster game and is talked about being the next great running back. Then gets buried in the depth chart because of injuries, inability pass block, and of course the fumbles (which I think could be solved if he didn’t try and reach the ball for an extra yard). But as Jason said, great character guy who represented the university very well. Best of luck to him.

            Yeah I agree with you that he was the best pure runner, but wan’t up to par with Woods and Ward on the other attributes that are vital for running backs to have in this offense. Luckily we have a pretty good stable of backs, just needs to stay healthy.

      What can Brown do for you?

      Hope it works out well for Agnew, but there is depth and the future looks promising if Mattison can qualify. Didn’t realize Agnew’s bro was the FB at SIU.

      Woods/Ward/Brown/ should be challenging to defend if the pass has to be respected.

      It will be interesting to see who shows up for the rebrand – Payton? Barry? Jackson? Rodgers bros? Paea? High end achievers from baseball, wrestling, gymnastics?

      Will they design something I actually want to buy and wear? I’d appreciate a t-shirt that looks like its for athletics, but reads “OSU Fisheris and Wildlife” instead of “OSU Football,” but somehow I don’t see that.

      Depends. How nervous are you? How about a scale of 1 to 10?

      And do you mean your nervous because of the negative potential outcomes (Beavers look like a joke), or nervous because you think its going to be positive (Beavers actually have cool gear without looking desperate for attention)?

      Why is this a good time to unveil the logo given that they won’t be implemented until fall? I’m assuming they’ll do an early release for fans to buy products in the spring and summer, but that just means they’ll be showing up at spring sporting events (e.g. baseball games) with logos/gear the team itself doesn’t have, correct? Not necessarily a bad thing, just wondering about the timing of it.
