We hit over 300 in the CWS and scored the most runs. Do you have to be a dumbass about everything?

17 in one game with 11 of those against scrubs skews things a bit.

I guess somebody else was the hitting coach against Stanford. Sorry, I wasn't aware of that.

Also,  I guess auburn was throwing scrubs too?

This was called a strike on Lanzilli. Catcher outside the box on the other side of the plate, catches the ball there, and reaches back over the plate.

I can't believe that was called a Strike.

As a fan base, our only hope is to have someone at the helm who is the antithesis of everything we think we should be.

Proud of the team.  The way the season ended, I didn't think we would make it out of the regional.  Here we are, a single win from the title game.  That to me, is woo pigging.

I agree as well.

Stovall and Lanzilli are some young guys to be excited about.

We will miss the infield defense of Battles and BGB (assuming he leaves) most critically.

Lanzilli was a grad transfer.

This game sucked donkey balls. However, it had two pitchers who did gave their absolute best. Sure, we all wanted to win, but I tip my hat to the Ole Miss pitcher who went and did a complete game shutout. Call me “old school” but I was impressed with their starter.

If you had told me before the game that the Ole Miss pitcher would throw a complete game shut out, I would think we'd be in trouble.

Pathetic performance at the plate.  They should be ashamed that they wasted such an outing by Nolan.  Oh well, get better players for next year.
Good pitching beats good hitting every day of the week. We weren't pathetic at the plate, DeLucia was just dominant and threw strikes the whole game.

You've just got to tip you cap to him. He flat out beat our hitters.

You've just got to tip you cap to him. He flat out beat our hitters.

First off, our offense was really good through the postseason.  They did all the things we bitched (correctly) about them not doing in the regular season...shortening up with two strikes, getting runners in from scoring position, going the other way when necessary.  When we execute that way, our approach is fine.

DeLucia showed the way to beat us, and it will work no matter how talented we are when the pitcher has pinpoint control.  Our approach is to have a minuscule strike zone AND look for a specific pitch with no strikes.  With one strike we look for the right pitch OR the right location.  With two strikes we (mostly) protect the plate and cover the entire zone regardless of the pitch.  This leads us to draw a lot of walks, and hit a lot of extra base hits with fewer than two strikes...both good things for any offense.

A pitcher who can get strikes either with off speed pitches, with fastballs on the black, or both, is going to get us in an 0-1 count nearly every time.  One as accurate as DeLucia was yesterday is going to have us 0-2 or 1-2 most of the time.  As a result we either strike out looking for too perfect of a pitch, or ground/fly out with weak contact.  And of course this means few if any walks/HBP, which means no way to grind out runs, unless the defense helps us by kicking the ball around.

The good news is, very few pitchers in college can pitch successfully to this game plan.  The ones who can usually can't sustain it for a whole game.  Yesterday was a perfect storm for Ole Miss in that manner.  And Noland was able to do basically the same thing...he pitched every bit as well as DeLucia, but with a slightly smaller strike zone (Fuck you, ump) and with Ole Miss having a couple of guys who could adjust to being slap hitters instead of trying to hit everything to the Pedo Bridge.

We're going to be rebuilding the offense from the ground up next year.  Hopefully the revamped offense will include a few more guys like Turner, who was pretty much the only one (Battles did it some too) who had decent power but could tone it down and control the bat as well when the situation dictated.

Some day.  Maybe.  Before we all die.  Someday, we are NOT going to face a player in a critical game that has the GODDAMN FUCKING BEST GAME OF HIS GODDAMN LIFE.

And this. 

We've heard all about how great DeLucia is after his performance.  And he did pitch the game of his life.  But he's not some first round draft pick who will pitch in MLB.  He'll be making his living giving pitching lessons to ten year olds in New Albany or Itta Bena within three years.

That is coaching though.  We’re very familiar with Ole Miss.  It wasn’t a secret what he would do and how he would pitch.  We should have adjusted our approach a bit.

Come to think of it, I believe we did.  We hit a lot of first pitches yesterday…hard…right at fielders.  Sometimes it goes like that.

Now that I've accepted this and gotten over the severe grief, could someone tell me what our line up will look like next year?   

These are all gone, right:  Robert Moore, Jalen Battles, Michael Turner, Chris Lanzilli, Connor Noland, Brady Slavens, and Braydon Webb (not caring about the non-starting pitchers). 

So what does our starting 8 look like in the field?   Will Tygart move to a starting pitcher role?  Along with Hagen Smith.   Will Pallette likely go pro?  Who's our 3rd starter?  What amazing players do we have coming in as freshmen and transfers.  I'm sure PorkRyan can tell me all of this. 

OH, it's 71 days until football.
