    I’m ready for baseball. And for those who get tired of Mike Parker, this just in…..he has a family event Saturday and will have to leave the booth before the game on Saturday is over. Jay Reese not available, so we will hear another voice; hopefully Jim Wilson can carry the new guy.

    Earlier in the week we talked about the errors/walks/HBP which cost the Devils a game against Texas Tech and the effect upon the confidence and chemistry of AZST.
    That collision between outfielders won’t help those areas. A two or three run inning here would likely take the fight out of them.

      He’s having a typical problem a lot of guys have. He has such a long swing, when he connects he can smoke a ball, but he’s going to have a ton of swings and a miss because of the swing. More often than not he’s gonna miss. Coaching staff needs to work with him on shortening up on the swing so he can make a lot more contact.

      Pat Casey wasn’t his coach in JC. Jim Wilson said Casper can’t hit curve balls and opposing teams know it. He (Casper) made a pretty good play at 3rd last night, On the video stream, it appeared to me that the bunt he put down had stayed fair and his sacrifice fly wasn’t so bad. ABs seem to be on his case, so I decided to throw in a little balance.

      Tomorrow will be a pretty big game for ASU if the Beavers are able to win this game. If ASU loses tomorrow, I think they get swept and a sweep and falling to 1-5 in conference play with UCLA coming in to play them next weekend could cause them to go into a pretty significant tailspin.

    Although there are individual plays you can point to and complain, it was a masterful pitching performance and the one hit the devils had was weak even by bloop single standards. The Beavs executed so many phases of the game. The hit and run with Conforto when he hit the ball to the left side, right where the shortstop WAS until he went to cover 2b was a thing of beauty. A great night to be in the stands but I’m tired of freezing my ass off on Friday nights.

      Now we’ll see Dixon in LA next year most likely. I also remember Dixon as an assistant under Wallace at Hawai’i. That was a fun team to watch.

          Did Howland get them there?

          Or did some of this generation’s best players at their respective positions happen to play there and will themselves to success?

          As lousy a coach as JJ is, he would still be coaching at OSU if he recruited and signed Farmar, Afflalo, Collison, Westbrook and Love… because he too would have made successive Final Four runs.

          So the next logical question… is he a decent coach for being an awesome recruiter?

          And, to answer a question with a question, is he the awesome recruiter? Or is John Wooden still doing the recruiting in Westwood?

          UCLA and wherever Calipari is coaching are the only two places in the country where they are literally only one year away from a Final Four appearance every year.

        And now a pretty clearly inside pitch called a strike to dispose of Peterson. Even with the camera angle it seemed obvious that the pitch was inside if you track the ball and then look at the plate when batter/ump/catcher get out of the way right after the call.
        That said, the umps didn’t beat the Beavs today, Kellogg pitched well and the Beavs now need to flush this one.

        Umps are known to make bad calls late in no-hitters, a walk could have potentially started a rally. The later it gets in these no-hitters, the umps will do hitters zero favors. Shouldn’t have been in that position though. Beavers hitters had awful at-bats all game and allowed Kellogg to get into a great rhythm and it was lights out from there.

    UCLA spent about $2.5m to buy out Howland. Wazzu fans want to spend the same to stab Bone’s contract to death. But the two SoCal jobs are the only ones vacant at the moment. I’d give Bone, CR and Dawkins all one more year each. And I will never over-estimate Sendek’s ability. Stealing Carson from CR may have extended his life and shortened CR’s.

    Dixon is now locked up for another 10 years at Pitt. Alford did the same at that school who lost to Harvard.

      Offense will do their part, just really struggling right now, getting Tyler Smith back soon is crucial. Also, Hayes will bust out of the slump soon, just having a tough time at the moment and it’s hurt the offense.

        Hayes must learn to fight off pitches more to prolong at bats instead of looking off borderline pitches.

    I love Casey’s competitive nature and the way he stands up for his kids, wish he could give a transfusion of that stuff to Riley.
    That said, his remarks about the poor job done yesterday by the plate ump, coupled with how he has handled umps today may (said may) have caused some distraction for the Beavs and some backlash (even unintentional) by the umps. Make any sense?

    Beavers were very fortunate to win today. Did not play well and ASU made some mistakes to help OSU. Gonna need to play better offensively from this point on, but a series win is a series win. 5-1 start is a great start, the bullpen got it done in some tough spots. They won this game.

    Can you imagine being a forks fan though. Lose 2 to the cougs at home and then have a chance to win the series today only to be denied. Another 6 inches on the double off the wall and it’s a 5-4 asu win.

      Exactly why you can’t lose a series at home. Incredibly crucial to take care of business at home cause there are so many good teams, very tough to win a series on the road. ASU had some serious bad luck but also had more than enough chances to win, just didn’t get it done. Never thought ASU would start 2-4 in conference this year, they’re good.

        I concur. I figured they’d at least get 2 of 3 at home against Wazzu. I am more puzzled by Stanford. How in the hell does a team that talented lose a series at sunken diamond against Utah?

          Coming off a series in which they were swept at home by UNLV, that was a really bad series loss. I thought they were gonna be really good. Their starting pitching has been underwhelming at times and the offense has been hit and miss. Really underachieving, but with their talent at some point I think they’ll get it together and be dangerous come postseason.

      And, the Beavs would go in knowing they can beat the Devils!
      Still, it would be intriguing to face Ryan Kellogg again; especially if Hayes was hitting well and no one else had slumped.

    I blame the no hitter on the people talking about Boyd being pitcher of the week after just a Friday game. Something bad is bound to happen when people get ahead of themselves.

      Yeah….we jinxed ourselves on that one! Two years ago I went to the home series against ASU ….but I remember was this old ASU fan, he said he had just driven his trailer up from ‘Zona and that he though Corvallis was cold — he mentioned ASU was hitting well and that he wouldn’t be suprised if they swept the Beavs….he jinxed his own team….ASU did hit well that series, but we ended-up sweeping them! Last thing I remember was him walking out at the 7th inning after our 2nd comeback in two days….LOL

    Eggers with the first details I’ve seen on Tyler Smith’s hand, says a hairline fracture was discovered after the AZ series and that he is possibly due back for UCLA. Good quotes from JRod as well.

    PAC12 site has video of the 9-2 double play; nearly another collision in the outfield, whats with CF?

    Not to jinx Scott Schultz but he’s off to a good start. In conference games he has 3 appearances and 3 saves with an ERA of 0.00. Teams are only batting .125 against him. For the season, 9 appearances with a win and 5 saves to go with his 0.00 ERA. Meanwhile, on the hitting side, Hayes is only hitting .130 in conference and Casper .091.

    In O-Live last night there was an article on the Beavers Offensive line and that there is enough depth to have an actual spring game, instead of a glorified practice. Does anyone have any more info as to the possibility of having a game this year? It would certainly bring in more than 7000 people and would be good for TV.

      I saw that. Interesting that they have Bays listed as guard now instead of center on the depth chart. I’m assuming that is because they want him on the field faster and he’d have to wait for Seumalo to graduate if he stuck with center. I’m very encouraged with the young and QUALITY depth we seem to have on our offensive line. Should mean good things for the next few seasons.

    We go to no 2 in the rankings and no one comments?? I guess losing one of 3 at home is a little disappointing, But getting no hit at home ought to put an edge on the team. Gotta love Pat Casey.

    Maybe someone has already suggested this, but Andy Enfield, coach of Florida Gulf Coast, might be an interesting successor to Craig Robinson at OSU. http://espn.go.com/mens-college-basketball/tournament/2013/story/_/id/9099314/2013-ncaa-tournament-andy-enfield-rise-florida-gulf-coast

      I don’t know, don’t you think OSU is becoming a bit of a coaches graveyard? I almost think they need someone who has won elsewhere, but has some baggage that keeps him out of the running for more desirable jobs.

      They couldn’t attract any NCAA tourney caliber mid-major coaches last time around. I’m pretty pessimistic on the future of Beaver hoops as far as being in the mix for the NCCA tournament. any time in the near future.

        You may be right. But I think an interesting pitch could be made to a coach like Andy Enfield by offering a competitive salary along with (1) the new OSU basketball practice facility; (2) the PAC-12 and its national media capabilities; (3) a five-year commitment by BDC and Ed Ray to upgrade the OSU basketball program to national prominence. This of course would be difficult, but I think OSU gains some credibility from its nationally respected baseball program, and from a football program that was in the Top 15 for much of last year. But, again, you may be right that OSU basketball is a harder sell at this point than it should be…..
