    A beautiful weekend for baseball! Too bad I can’t go. Boooo!

    I wonder why they stretch 3 games over 3 days instead of doubling them up Fri-Sat or Sat-Sun.

      They will, they beat Arizona and played them in a one run game in another game. Also, the Beavers will be sending their 4th and 5th starters out, never know what can happen in those type of games.

    Other than the usual “neat” and “awesome” stuff not much of note from Riley on the broadcast tonight. He said Mannion and Vaz would get lots of reps in the Spring and a decision not likely to be made then, no surprise there. He did mention that Vaz and Mannion are getting guys together 3-4 times a week.

    When asked about what went right last season he mentioned the approach of all involved; they started each Monday focused no matter what had happened the previous Saturday. Also specifically mentioned having well defined goals each week.

    Starr only pitches a third of an inning. He comes out in the 7th and walks the leadoff batter, gives up a single through the hole and an infield hit and a run so in comes Bryant. With Esposito behind the plate and runners at the corners Bryant fans the batter but Nate throws the ball over Smiths head and runner scores from third. 2 Ks and a flyout for Bryant. 11-4 Beavs at the stretch

          Wilson and Reese were talking about how the move might have something to with matchup vs Arizona next week and setting up the rotation for it. Arizona has a very fast infield and a ground ball pitcher like Child isn’t a good matchup for that. I could definitely see Child moving back into the weekend rotation later on. I can understand the move now though.

      I noticed that as well, although I try not to pay much attention to the ucks. Given the level of competition this week it seems to me the gap in RPI and SOS between the Beavs and ucks will narrow on the Nolan site.

      Aside from what Nolan thinks, I do believe the competition level faced by both teams will factor in to their performance when conference play begins. Right now, no disrespect to Nolan, I think the ucks have had the overall tougher schedule but doubt that factor will be enough for them to outshine the Beavs this season.

        RPI is RPI. Nolan only reports it, and record has a lot to do with it. SOS is probably the second most important factor.

        NPI is a little different. In hoops we would be looking at Kenpom vs. RPI. That’s how different they are. Don’t buy into what ESPN sells with BPI in hoops. It’s untested and only sounds good in a vacuum. Sometimes you get so far into the weeds that you’ve lost the channel.

        Imagine everything nasty I’ve said on this site and everything nasty you have ever thought. Now imagine all that being bundled into a nice post-game speech for the Beavs on Thursday.

        We’re talking a paint-peeling talk. And we’re not talking screaming and yelling. We’re talking disappointment and frustration.

    In typical bunt situations, Casey seems a lot more aggressive this season. Putting runners in motion and guys are pulling the bat back and trying to slap the ball past infielders. Not just the typical bunt and move guys along. Liking the aggressiveness and forcing the issue the season.

    Had a pretty nice day at the ballgame yesterday. Crowd was pretty quiet, but woke up in the 4th(?) when the hitting started happening.

    I was reminded of why I sometimes hate going to sporting events where you’re packed in with others in tight seating. Dorky college guy 2 rows in front of me decided the 5th inning was as good a time as ever to just vomit right on himself. He tried to hold it back at first but sortof had that look of lard-ass from Stand By Me, where he knew it was past the point of no return. Instead of getting up to find a garbage can (which was literally 10 feet away from him) he just lets it explode through his hands, it splatters out the sides and hits an old lady to his left right on her glasses. She’s trying to wipe herself off, and he just sits there like nothing happened for about a minute before he decided it’s probably time to leave the game (covered in his own vomit). Luckily the 2 seats in front of him were empty at the time, but a few minutes later those people came back to sit after going to the concessions. They see the vomit on their seats, not sure of what it was and almost just sit down in it. Then the old lady who had wiped off her glasses hands them her vomit covered single napkin, which the use to gently wipe of their seat and then sit down, none the wiser. The old lady to her credit, didn’t get pissed off and just powered through and finished the game after getting splattered on.

    What the fuck is wrong with people? Vomit guy didn’t even apologize and just left the game, leaving the nasty, orange (Go Beavs!) mess behind.
    On top of that there was some redneck asshole who got impatient with my pregnant wife because she wasn’t exiting the stands fast enough (like you could go any faster than the fans in front of you) I could hear him mutter under his breath, “Come On!!” when she leaned over to pick up her jacket upon leaving. Fuck that guy.

    Other than that, great day.

    OT- Cliff reports on the FB rules committee’s recent decisions, “The big one requires players who target and hit defenseless players above the shoulders to be ejected along with the 15-yard penalty.”

    This is gonna further highlight the well founded complaints about the quality of officiating. The intent to avoid injuries is fine but with the caliber of the zebras we’ve seen in the PAC12 it is really going to rile up many fans. I hope Riley stands up for his guys when the next screw up occurs and also when he is meeting with those coaches who say he is such a nice guy and claim to value his opinions!

    I’m too lazy to look it up right now, but thought maybe someone remembers off the top their head…wasn’t our series with Oregon at Oregon last year? I was just checking the schedule and see we play there this season as well. I could have sworn we closed the regular season out with a sweep on their turf in 2012.

    S-I’s early look at the Pac-12:

    • Oregon State: How long will the Beavers’ quarterback controversy continue? Oregon State had a memorable, and unusual, 2012 season, starting 6-0 and eventually finishing 9-4 (after going 3-9 the year before) with both Sean Mannion and Cody Vaz (after Mannion got hurt) taking successful turns under center. However, what began the year as a luxury turned into a headache for coach Mike Riley down the stretch. Both Mannion (against Oregon) and Vaz (against Texas in the Alamo Bowl) had nightmarish performances in late-season losses. After starting hot, Mannion finished with a dismal 15-to-13 touchdown-to-interception ratio, and thus Riley declined to pull Vaz in the bowl game even as he coughed up three turnovers and took a staggering 10 sacks. Oregon State returns ample talent on offense, led by receiver Brandin Cooks and tailback Storm Woods, but expect the competition between Vaz and Mannion to dominate discussion throughout the spring — and probably into August

      Maybe Vaz can take the five step drop and just take a knee. Anything is better than a misread under center followed by that standing fetal position he does.

        I was thinking he could have spiked it at least once in that season ending drive in the Alamo bowl instead taking the yardage loss. Guess he didn’t want the incompletion hurting his stats… better a loss of downs than a loss of downs and yardage…

        I never really understood Cunningham leaving early unless he or his family needed the money. I wonder how hard CR pushed back, if at all? Jared’s game clearly was not ready for the NBA. When the foul calls started to dry up towards the end of last season, he was particularly ineffective.

          I hope Craig Robinson pushed back – if he has any basketball sense at all, he would’ve, should’ve. OTOH, to say there was a #1 draft pick out of your program probably sounds good. In the baseball program, Brian Stamps left too early as well and I got the impression Pat Casey was blunt about telling him not to go.

            You make a good point, I can’t find the quote, but there’s one out there from the off season where CR was sort of patting himself on the back for developing and sending J-Flight off to the NBA. If I remember correctly, it was in regards to how it was going to help recruiting. I thought at the time that it was a bit premature, but I guess Cunningham has some guaranteed money. It will be interesting to see if he really gets another shot with the Mavs next season.

    From Aaron Fitt’s (Baseball America) chat today:

    Q: Gray, Anderson and Shipley have popped up as potential first round pitchers this year — are there any pop-up hitters with similar talent this year or next?

    A: …Here’s a guy for next year: Dylan Davis at Oregon State has all kinds of talent, and he’s really putting it together as a sophomore. He hasn’t hit any home runs yet, but there’s real juice in that swing, and it’s encouraging to see him hitting for average.
