11.Jun.2017 Collective Piece for Canzano/Oregonian

Guys, please put all your thoughts here (if you posted them in another thread, repost them here) regarding The Oregonian (specifically Canzano, since he is the one I’m angry with for demanding Luke not pitch, an outrageous “moral superiority”/high-horse request). There are a lot of contradictions, hypocrisy, etc, and I can’t find or remember them all myself. It’s flat out “virtue signaling” by Canzano.

This is the article I’d like to deconstruct. It’s a complete mess from a logical standpoint. Any examples you can think of that contradict, etc.

Once we get them all here in one thread, I can put thoughts together an article and send it to him. Canzano and I have been speaking via PM. He told me to call the show as a standard caller, but there’s too much to discuss in a couple minute phone call. I asked him to book me for a half hour and never heard back. So I want to collect all key points and put them in writing here, then send them over to him and see what he does.

Again, I don’t support Luke, yet I don’t support a media member calling for his head, either. Especially when said media member seems to carefully select when he’s going to call for someone’s head and is a hypocritical walking contradiction with an agenda. Let’s get at it and try to stay on topic. If you want to talk about the other issues, use the threads below.

09.Jun.2017 Vanderbilt @ Oregon State (Super Regional)

Should be an interesting atmosphere tonight to say the least. I’m sure there will be a lot of taunting and such that the Beavs will have to block out and overcome. This series is going to test their fortitude more than any other in their lives. I don’t have a great feeling about it, but since they have had good leadership and focus all year maybe they can overcome this, block out the noise, and immerse themselves in the game rather than the outside drama. Vandy’s dugout is going to be brutal to listen to…have to block that out, be mental titans, and let their play do the talking.

Go Beavs.

08.Jun.2017 Luke Heimlich Situation

Opinion changed as the Oregonian kept blabbing and revealing their motives.

Comments remain for posterity.

02.Jun.2017 Corvallis Regional

I’m not a fan of the 8pm start time, nor am I a fan of Casey starting Jake Thompson game 1. The latter makes no sense. It will likely work out just because Holy Cross is bad. The only logic I can come up with for the more is that Casey knows Thompson notoriously chokes under pressure, and if for some reason Luke had lost game 1, there would be more pressure in game 2. That’s convoluted thinking, but I can’t see any other reason to pitch Thompson game 1.

Just shows the coaches (a) Don’t respect Holy Cross, which is going to piss them off and (b) bon’t have much confidence in Thompson in the post-season, either (i.e. they are pitching him vs the worst team and afraid of putting him in a pressure situation/game 2). Again, I’m sure he will be at least serviceable since Holy Cross is bad, but in my opinion it’s a bad move and it’s being done because they don’t have faith in Thompson.

Anyway, Casey is overthinking this and might blow it. If HC somehow wins shit will hit the fan. For the record, I think it will work out because these opponents are all weak, but it’s still stupid.

Go Beavs.

31.May.2017 General Thread

Let’s hear predictions for the Beavs in the CWS.

Since they’re #1 overall and having a historic season, the Beavs will have a target on their back every inning this post-season. When you’re a marked man like that, even teams like Yale and Holy Cross become dangerous in a short series. I’m not saying those teams will beat the Beavs, but the Beavs will be under constant attack from everybody, and added with the nerves of the post-season, it could be a recipe for an early exit. I see Vanderbilt as an early threat. Maybe Stanford in the super regional…but since they’re marked any team can get them. Very curious to see how Jake Thompson does…

Also, on the Petras signing. I like it. His WRs are wide open in the film, so it’s hard to gauge much, but he moves okay and has a nice delivery.

Go off topic, etc.
