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.
Just as you alluded, it's terribly frustrating that this seems to plague us in most other sports as well. I've lost count of how many times I've seen this shit happen.

...as for me and my house, we will call the Hogs.

A better strike zone would have squeezed him a bit yesterday as well.  When a pitcher has a generous zone and the control to put it where he wants, he is going to be damned near impossible to hit.  Moore got called out on ball four.  Instead of having two on with the bat in Battles hands, we were headed back out to the field.

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?

7/9ths of our lineup is gone. Only Stovall and Gregory (woof) return. Ibuprofen will probably be a starter, and Diggs might be our DH. Leach will likely be our catcher unless we go to the portal again, in which case I’d see him transferring.   

Pitching will be good next year. McEntire has emerged, and Smith, Tygart, Morris, Wiggins, Ledbetter, as well as a few others like Tole and Starks will be back. Taylor has a COVID year, but unknown if he’d return.

Some newcomers people have been talking about are Easton Swofford, Harold Coll, Jayson Jones, Mason Neville and Reese Robinett.

We need to hit the portal for some hitters. The biggest indictment against Nate Thompson is that the only .300 hitters we’ve had the last two years have been Charlie Welch, Michael Turner, and Chris Lanzilli, and all three were 1 year transfer guys. Meanwhile guys like Slavens and Moore regressed significantly year/year.

Maybe Wallace would come back if DVH lets HIM wear #2?

Nope, he's 21 and draft eligible.

Let me tell you what Melba Toast is packin' right here, alright. We got 4:11 Posi-trac out back, 750 double pumper, Edelbrock intake, bored over 30, 11 to 1 pop-up pistons, turbo-jet 390 horsepower. We're talkin' some fuckin' muscle.

Oh.  Shit naked.  For whatever reason, I thought they had to give us 3 years.  Why didn't Moore leave after last year?  Was he not 21 yet?

For college players, anyone who is enrolled in a community college or a junior college is always eligible to be selected in the MLB Draft. However, the rules are different for those who enroll in a four-year college. Those players are only eligible three years after first enrolling in a four-year college or after they turn 21, whichever one comes first. Even if a player enrolls in a four-year school and then drops out, they must wait three years or until they turn 21 to be eligible for the MLB Draft.

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.

We already have the Creighton transfer coming in for next year. Outfielder with a good bat. Hopefully that bat translates from the Big East.

We excel at creating folk heroes out of opposing team pitchers in elimination games.

OU and Ole Miss in the finals has to be the most Pride Month thing fucking ever.

Ya know, I'm not real sure. You would think if he had, someone would've mentioned it.

That reminds me to also go see if anyone has ever played ball on a torn ACL.

Are you sure about this?  I know Jackson Rutledge transferred from Arkansas to San Jac after his freshman year, and played only one year in JUCO before being drafted.  He was only 20 his first year in the minors as well.

The relevant portion...


Players who have graduated high school but not attended college are eligible for the draft, as are those who have completed at least one year of junior college. Players attending four-year colleges are eligible to be drafted upon completing their junior year or turning 21 years old.

It all happened in the game where Van Horn was sick.  Late in the game they sent Leach in to pinch hit against a WHP, and Alabama pulled him to put in a RHP.  Thompson then pulled Leach in favor of Bohrofen.  The dad didn't care for that, and complained that the staff always tried to get Dylan to give up switch hitting.
