Rating: 5.0/5 (1 vote cast)

6pm tonight.

Should be a great series. Gut says Boyd wins, Wetlzer loses, and Moore is a wildcard, but not a strong feeling on any of that. So, I am thinking 2-1 best case, but who knows, Beavs have confidence and are playing well. They've also been hearing about their weak schedule, so that could motivate them further.

Stream available at:

pac-12.com/live/arizonawildcats.aspx or http://pac-12.com/live/arizonawildcats2.aspx

Regarding television availability: Oregon State and Arizona got word from the Pac-12 earlier this week that Sunday's game will no longer be broadcast on the Pac-12 Networks. The three-game series, however, is slated to be streamed for free via Pac-12.com.

Yay for the Pac-12 Network?

I have to say, the baseball streams are nice and high quality. Love that Mike Parker isn't doing the games (had to throw that in there).

    Stoked for this series. Gotta get 2 at least.

    Unrelated: Lyle Moevao will be a grad assistant next year, helping out with running backs, which seems odd.

    Arizona’s three starters this weekend, Konner Wade, James Farris and Cody Moffett all have good ERA’s, but are all guys the Beavers can hit. Arizona has the type of ballpark the Beavers hitters should thrive in. They have a lot of line drive, gap to gap hitters and this ballpark has enormous gaps in the outfield. I think the Beavers are going to score their fair share of runs this weekend. I think both offenses will hit well, the bullpens may decide who wins this series and both are good. I think the series is a toss up with it being Tucson, but I think the Beavers find a way to squeak out two wins this weekend.

      Wetzler’s slow starts are a real concern, coupled with the “pitch count” thing; its a good thing Casey didn’t need to use much bullpen tonight.

      BTW, seems like the pitch count for Wetzler should be in the 70’s or so now that he has a couple starts behind him.

      Nice to see the bats coming alive tonight, it could take 6 or more to win tomorrow.

      Big issue the last year+ with Jake is he doesn’t get low enough when blocking pitches. Thus pitches go right between his legs a little too often. Something he’ll have to improve.

    Conforto has been spectacular again this season and Dylan Davis has been great as has Tyler Smith, but Kavin Keyes’ performance this year might be my favorite. Swinging it well, has a great approach at the plate, not chasing pitches, he might be running the bases better than anyone, playing great defense. He’s such a smart player and it really shows this season. Nice to see him bounce back this year and play to what he’s capable of.

    2-0 Beavers after an inning and a half. Had a man on third with 1 out and probably should have gotten a 2nd run in the 2nd inning. Can’t blow chances like that. Surprised Casey didn’t try to squeeze Casper home.

    Joey Matthews doesn’t execute with a man on third and one out in the top of the inning, then throws a ball to third with runners tagging which allows the runner from first to move up to 2nd. Bad baseball.

    I know Davis is having a great year and Casey probably doesn’t want to hit lefties b2b, but I would probably prefer Hayes hitting 4th and Davis 5th. Although Hayes flied out there, I just like his approach with men on base more. Dylan is way too aggressive with men on base. He starts swinging at everything and gets himself out. Came through last night but just not sure his approach is best to hit right behind Conforto when Michael gets walked. Hayes has pop, so it’s not like you’re missing the pop if Hayes moves into the cleanup spot

It all depends on if and when the UP game is rescheduled. We might lose to them on April 10 then the Saturday game against Stanford and the first in the CWS finals for a 62-4 record.

    I think I’d take the second fantasy first.

      I think Parker is losing it. Listening to some of the BB casts, sounded like he was expecting us to blow it in the second half of games. Yes, we usually do, but he should try to be positive …. at least try.

        Then there is Jay Reese, did you hear him getting upset over the slow pace of the AZ pitcher? Thought he might have a stroke!

        I still contend Jay does an OK job, working solo and still able to share a few insights. Misspeaks some game facts occasionally but eventually gets it right.

        One thing I believe we all agree, Jim Wilson makes listening to either Parker or Jay a lot easier!

      Riley’s version of the no huddle and hurry up aren’t the same as everyone elses. Hurry up to him means normal game speed. Just like when he tried to have Katz run the option it looked off.

        Riley no huddle features players hustling to the line of scrimmage, only to stand there until there are 5 or less seconds left on the shot clock. Might as well spend that time in the huddle rather than standing there giving the D time to read your formation. Its no huddle but not hurry up.

        Riley’s lack of attention to detail probably means lots of errors in a no-huddle or hurry up, and him abandoning it nearly as quickly as him running the option.

    Still waiting on the coaches’ poll, but we remain at #2 in the CBN with the same 494 points. Only UNC changes points from last week in the top five, losing one to drop them to 496. Only MissSt and ASU are dropping while remaining in the top 25.

    Does Conforto pull in honors for Pac POW? He was 8 for 19 with 5 runs, 4 RBI and 2 HR. Rodriguez at Cal was 5 for 19 with 3 runs, 9 RBI, and 2 HR. And Wazzu vs. ASU put up some large numbers, though they seemed to be spread out over several players for the week.

    Nikegon kinda got screwed. They match up decently against oSu, but only on the frontcourt. Artis and Loyd are going to have their hands full with Smart. And none of it matters because St. Louis will smoosh whichever team wins. StL is just really talented and on a “win one for the Gipper” kind of tear. And they are big and fast and tough as nails.

    UCLA can go to the Final Four or lose their first game. My guess is that Billy Donovan puts Howland out of his misery… yet again… and for the final time as the Bruins’ coach.

    Cal has the talent to go to the Sweet 16 against faltering UNLV and Cuse. And they could be world beaters by knocking off Indy. But it’s Monty in the post-season. UNLV rolls unless Monty has a couple seven foot twins hiding under his bench.

    Zona could also go far if they could play as a team. But they’re sucking big enough to lose to Belmont. Again, it doesn’t matter. UNM will kill either team in the round of 32 then roll them for loose change.

    CU is the intriguing one. They match up well with everyone in their sub-bracket… even Miami. I personally don’t think they make it past the first weekend. But I wouldn’t be surprised to see them playing in the regional final either.

    I’m gonna say everyone but Cal wins their first game, then maybe UCLA or CU go to 16, with CU being a Cinderella in that scenario.

            I’m wild this year. I’ll give you my 16.

            I have Loiisville/StL and MichSt/Duke, Zags/KSU and UNM/tOSU, Ku/VCU and GU/UF, and IU/Cuse and Davidson/Miami.

            That last sub-bracket is the hardest for me because Miami could win it all, but any of those teams could beat any of those teams. That’s why Davidson is my Cinderella for this year.

            Beyond those picks, I would choose Cuse to beat IU, tOSU to beat UNM, KU to beat VCU, G’town to beat UF (maybe), and the other three are toss-ups with the winner of the Tourney coming from one of those match-ups.

      I’m of two minds on this result. An ASU win would, in a small way, bolster the image of the PAC12, OTOH, this kind of a loss is likely to impact the mental state and team chemistry of ASU.

      Right now anything that works in the Beavs favor is fine with me and if they can keep things going the stature of the PAC12 won’t be much of a factor late in the season.

        2-3 in their last 5 but one of those wins was against New Mexico and ASU was very lucky to win. If the Beavers jump on them early in game 1 on Friday night, things could turn bad for ASU fast in the series. Facing a confident Beavers team when ASU is struggling with their confidence is a recipe for disaster. I wouldn’t expect this Beavers team to lose any focus, they seem pretty determined and focused and have been that way all season.

    Joe Lopez transfers to PSU. Thoughts? He was on the two-deep last year, and I would think we would want all the depth we can get at DT, JC guys notwithstanding.

      I think this is more of an indication that the JC guys will qualify and be here. 5 DTs on the roster with 2 JCs coming in for spring. Plus one more in the fall puts DTs at 8 guys. More than enough.

      Lopez didn’t do much so his loss won’t be anything really.

      Besides, it’s a numbers game as well. Kirkpatrick listed 70 players on scholarship. I’m not sure if Lopez was a scholarship guy, I don’t remember him being one. With 4 guys already enrolled (Harlow, Nelson, Delva and Hautau). They have room for 15 more. Signed 25 minus the 4 already in, leaves 19 guys for 15 spots.

      Curious to see who else will leave or hopefully, some guys will just greyshirt. Mattison is a good candidate for that and I think Hungala is a question mark too.

        Question for the more knowledgable: do grey shirts still get things like school and living expenses paid for in order to keep them on campus? Mattison does seem like a likely grey shirt candidate but given his personal life story it sounds like he wants to get to Corvallis as soon as he can.

          Once they enroll full time, they become full scholarship players. I believe that if they come early, they have to pay their own way and cannot take more than 12 credits. Otherwise their athletic clocks start and he’ll have basically wasted a year.
