Hogs vs Rebelblackbearlandsharts—-Baseball
« Reply #225 on: May 02, 2022, 09:26:04 AM »
We had 14 LOB in the series. 

Ole Miss had 26. 

We had 24 strikeouts (half in the first game).  They had 24.   We had only two yesterday with several well hit balls right at people. 


Sometimes, it just feels like we are the worst at everything.
Getting out of the two innings where OM had bases loaded was huge.

In SEC play...
ERA is 1 run less than last year. Hitting stats are about the same.

Who gives a shit?  The narrative is that since we're not winning every single game 10-0, we suck.  Do you not know?

I am cautiously optimistic that the team will be what it needs to be for the postseason.  But after these two burns --

Having the NC in pocket except for botched pop fly
Spending most of the season at #1 only to not even make the CWS

You have to understand the balkiness of Hog baseball fans. No pun intended. Or sort of.

Last year Kopps bailed us out of a ton of close games, our record was a little deceptive because we had that ace (literally) in the hole.  Tourney performance is dependent on a variety of factors, including just "peaking".  DVH is a great tourney coach.

I'd still rather have our team and coaches than Tennessee's heading into the postseason.  This team could go a long ways.

Yeah, even if we get there I could see us going 0-2 while allowing fewer than four runs total.  Those 92 mph exit velo balls that make up over half of Slavens' HRs aren't even getting to the warning track at TDA or whatever they're calling that ballpark now.

Charles Schwab Field, for those scoring at home.

I think a lot of Hog baseball fans are at this point now. Too many bridesmaid finishes. I personally am taking a "Que será, será" approach myself.

Frankly, we're all very spoiled as Hog baseball fans at this point. Kind of victims of our own success (also, I'm not allowed within like 50 yards of any school).

Interesting that they would name it after someone with a name so close to someone nationally famous, like the guy from the investment firm Charles Schwab.

Charles Schwab bought TD Ameritrade. That is the reason for the name change.

I think he played catcher. Or pitcher, depending on the day.

So you're saying the next nut/gut punch will see our season end by balking in the winning run?

I could see that.
