Title: Hogs vs Gumps—-Baseball
Post by: Son_of_Spam on May 17, 2022, 08:56:22 AM
I am running our of fucks to give but here goes…your Arkansas Razorbacks take on the Gumps from Alabama at Alabama this Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Thursday’s game begins at 6:00 and is on SEC+ and the ESPN app. Friday’s game is at 7:00 and will be shown on the SEC Network. Saturday’s game is at 1:00 and on SEC+ and the ESPN app. Our bats are limper than an 80 year old man’s dick. Offense is stagnant. I am surprised that we haven’t had any back injuries from our guys screwing themselves into the ground swinging for the fence every at bat. Doesn’t matter if we get a man on. The next guy will just hit into a DP if he doesn’t strike out. Second and third and no outs? Forget about it. We will be lucky to win 1. Every team has us figured out now and throws lefty after lefty at us. A freshman lefty just kicked our asses after throwing over 100 pitches. My hope is fading…..but as usual, GO HOGS!

Bama only has one lefty starter so at least we have a chance in the other two.

Doesn't have to be a starter.  Probably wouldn't even need to be a pitcher.  Find an outfielder or first baseman whose never pitched before and give him a shot.

Can we cancel the series since this will likely lower our RPI?

The only thing that gives me hope for the postseason is MSU’s form this time last year.

The only thing that gives me hope for the postseason is MSU’s form this time last year.
This time last year, MSU was coming off a series against Mizzou where they lost 2 of 3. Coincidentally, they also closed their season with Alabama in Tuscaloosa, so there are synergies there. 

They swept Bama, went 0-2 in Hoover, and the rest is history.

For reference, last year MSU batted .278 as a team in the regular season (we’re at .272), had an OPS of .814 (.860), 75 homers (77), 306 walks (260), and struck out 455 times (395). On the mound, they had a team ERA of 4.04 (3.57), and 817 strikeouts (529).

The biggest discrepancies in the numbers are that they walked way more than we did and their pitchers had far more strikeouts than we do. Other than that the numbers are fairly similar, if not a bit in our favor.

Interesting break down.


Also their last two games before regionals began were losses of 13-1 and 12-2. Whatever Lemonis figured out once June rolled around  was pretty impressive.

We are not going to win the west. We won’t get a national seed. We are going to look like dogshit through the regionals and the supers.

We will make it to Omaha and we will win the first game once there.

I don't care for that regional at all...could see either TCU or Tech taking us down.

If we were able to clear that one, I could see us hosting Florida in the Supers.  I'd like our chances in a rematch with them at home.

Realistically I don't see us ending up in the 6/11 matchup though.  Either we win the West and end up top 8 ( likely 8th), or we don't and probably end up closer to 15th or 16th at best.  It seems like D1 is splitting the difference between potential outcomes with that seeding for us.

The thing I do like about that bracket is that it allows us to pitch off in game 1. There are some solid 4 seeds with good arms and we avoid them with this draw.   The problem is that I don't know who our best pitcher is right now.  Smith cannot throw in game 2 of a regional, I do know that.

I don't see how we are going to be a top 8 seed even if we sweep and win the West.  We are at 26 in the RPI.  Only 9 points in between us and #30, but there are 48 points between us and #21.  Even if we sweep I don't know that we can get into the top 20, definitely can't get in the top 16.   We have to go 1-2 just to be in the top 32.

I just don't see how they leave out a 20-10 outright SEC division champ, regardless of RPI.  The only time it's happened in recent memory was 2016 South Carolina, and SC was one of three twenty win teams in the league and had the lowest RPI of the three.  The west was much stronger that year with three national seeds...Tennessee running roughshod over the other side would have to help in that regard this year.  The only SEC team with a lesser record that would even have an argument is A&M (assuming they finish 19-11), and that's pretty tenuous given that we would've finished with the better record and how close the series was that we lost to them in Sheepfuckistan (zero run differential). 

I really think we're going to go 2-1, finished tied with aTm, and end up hosting as the sixteen seed, paired with Tennessee.  And I'm kind of okay with that if we aren't a national seed.  It would be fun as hell to be the team to shut those cocky fuckers down.  Maybe playing them would motivate us to get off our asses and play to somewhere close to our potential.

I don't think the NCAA cares about a division winner.  Typically the SEC West champ has had a great SOS and RPI to go along with the record.  The SEC West isn't very good this year.  Look at the resumes of the teams and there isn't much there.  Just a few years ago we had 5 in the top 16 RPI..  Last year was the year most of the pundits like D1 thought the NCAA would move away from RPI due to the Covid scheduling.  Instead the NCAA went almost exclusively by RPI.  It has been the #1 metric for a while.

Louisiana Tech hosted last year with a 29 RPI.

In 2019 Ole Miss hosted with 22 RPI, and Oregon St. had 20 RPI.

2018 Texas hosted at 22, NC State at 19.

The national seeds have held closer to the top 12 or so, but they are clearly willing to go outside the top 20 for hosting if there is a good argument for the team in question.

We'll see.

There is no way the committee would NOT give a national seed to a team that comes in 2nd place in the SEC and has 20 SEC wins. We win the west with 19 or 20 SEC wins and come in 2nd overall in the SEC (as long as Ole Miss beats aTm), we will be a national seed.

Don’t sleep on Ole Miss against A&M. They seem to have turned a corner after being in free fall a few weeks ago. They played us very hard and were 2 swings away from sweeping us, and they swept LSU in Baron Rouge this past weekend.

I don’t think it is as bad they make it sound concerning the fans but they were talking big before the season. Add that to all listed above and the fact they are 5-5 in the last 10 and of course there will be angst. Hey. At least folks still give a shit.

Like Nolan said - you gotta feed the monster

I don’t think DVH is mad, he is just defending his players who are probably need to spend more time in the cage or hunt center than on social media.

This is the same group he challenged in the press a couple weeks ago when. He said they weren’t special and need to get better.

I’m not down on the team.  My expectations have just been adjusted to the reality of their performance.  They aren’t shitty, they just aren’t as good as I, and many others, thought they would be.  If they can get out of a regional I would consider that a success for this team considering what I have seen most of the season.  Any thing more and it is gravy.

There should be a clock when the coach goes to the mound.

Only the head coach can call for a pitching change and once he leaves the dugout he has 2 minutes to initiate the pitching change and the new pitcher has 8 pitches/3 minutes to warm on the mound.


Home team pitcher doesn’t get any warmup time on the mound. He should be familiar already.

Tamez the Transfer from Arkansas grounds out to Battles.  2 outs.

(Editor's Note:  Tamez the Transfer from Arkansas was the final player in the legendary Dominic streak at Arkansas.  His departure after the 2020 covid year ended a ten-year run of at least one player named Dominic on the roster at Arkansas - Ficociello, Taccolini, Fletcher, Tamez.  The current Heston streak stands at five seasons).

Denton strikes out.  Sit down, bitch.  3 outs.

Bottom 3rd.

Seidl flies out to surprisingly deep RF.  Lanzilli does a 360 and makes the catch.  1 out.

Diodati singles off Stovall's glove.  Should be E3...Stovall tried to field it even though Moore was right behind him and had a better angle.  Runner on 1st, 1 out.

Tommy Shaw...err..Jarvis walks.  Runners 1st and 2nd, 1 out.

Rose flies out to RF.  Runners 1st and 2nd, 2 outs.

Hameater chops one off the plate...infield hit.  Bases full of NIL money, 2 outs.

Pinckney, their one player who doesn't suck, with the check swing strikeout.  He's not happy with the call...but sit down, bitch.  3 outs.

End 3rd.  1-0 Arkansas.

One thing that concerns me bigly about this Hog team is that we quite literally never go out and mash anybody.

I get that’s easier said than done in this conference, but you figure we’d at least have the occasional game where we put our nuts on the table, jump out on someone, and win 12-2 where the game is over I the 6th.

We constantly play up or down to our level of competition. This Bama team is struggling to even make Hoover and yet we’re having trouble with them.

Top 5th.

Battles takes advantage of the shift with a weak grounder that the 2nd baseman fields, but not in time to throw him out at 1st.  Runner on 1st, 0 out.

Gregoire sac bunts Battles to 2nd (on a 3-1 count...WTF Dave?).  Runner on 2nd, 1 out.

Wild pitch enables Battles to move up.  Runner on 3rd, 1 out.

Wallace strikes out swinging at strike two.  Runner on 3rd, 2 outs.

Turner pounds one off the RF wall, narrowly missing a couch fucking.  Battles scores.  3-1 HOGS.  Runner on 2nd, 2 outs.

Moore walks.  Runners 1st and 2nd, 2 outs.

Lanzilli singles to CF.  Turner scores.  4-1 HOGS.  Bob to 2nd.  Runners 1st and 2nd, 2 outs.

Slavens uses the free strike after the Bama 3rd baseman Razorbacks an easy pop up to strike out looking. 3 outs.

Mid 5th.  4-1 Hogs.

I get the idea of bunting with Gregory.  He's really good at getting hits that way.

But someone needs to remind DVH that the runner moves to 2nd on a walk just as well as if you bunt him up...more easily even.

Seidl bloops one to RF...of course Lanzilli can't make the play.  Run scores from 3rd.  Tied 4-4.  Bases full of NIL money, 1 out.

(Editor's Note:  graduate transferring from Harvard to Alabama has to be like retiring as the scientist who cured cancer and getting a job picking corn out of prisoners' shit with your bare hands.  Or like going from being paid a billion dollars a year to fuck super models to eating Hillary Clinton's ass for minimum wage.)

Wouldn’t be so bad if he had some hard luck outs.   But he has a shit ton of strikeouts.   I would prefer if he never hit another home run because he could have a classic line drive base hitter swing with fairly regular gap power.  He could seriously hit high .300s.

Top 7th.

Gregory, who has not been hit by a pitch yet tonight, is hit by a pitch.   Play under review.  Announcers think he Walkered it.  Obviously he didn't, because Birmingham upheld the call.  If it was even close we know that wouldn't have happened.  Runner on 1st, 0 out.

Wallace grounds into what would've been a double play if there had been someone on the right side to cover 2nd base.  Force at 2nd.  Runner on 1st, 1 out.

Turner strikes out allegedly swinging.  Runner on 1st, 2 outs.

Moore bloops one into LF for a single.  Runner on 1st and 2nd, 2 outs.

Lanzilli, who owes us at least two runs, rips one down the line for extra bases.  Wallace and Moore score.  8-6 Alabama.  Runner on 2nd, 2 outs.

PITCHING CHANGE:  They have a lefty coming in. Brock Guffey.  The comeback was fun while it lasted.  FUCK!

This pitching change brought to you by my weekly reminder that people should not be allowed to pitch left-handed in the game of baseball.  This is not a discriminatory policy.  Those who favor their left arm are welcome to pitch...they just have to use the other arm to do it.

Slavens strikes out by taking ball three at his eyes.  Fuck this ump.  3 outs.

Damn Slavens. Watched another strike three. I get it, that is a tough pitch, especially if you give up on it half way to the plate.

Someone, I don't know, maybe the hitting coach, should teach these guys that they play for Arkansas and are going to get fucked by the umpires more often than not on balls and strikes.  Taking a close pitch, or in the case of Slavens strike three, one that is between your helmet and your shoelaces, is guaranteeing an out with no chance of doing anything about it.

Great job by Ramage that inning.  If we could get that production for three to four innings every time out he would be deadly.  We need that Ramage.

Top 8th.  Let's not wait until the 9th guys.

Webb walks strikes out homers with a bloop single to CF.  Runner on 1st, 0 out.

(Editor's Note:  DON'T FUCKING BUNT DAVE!)

Stovall with the ugliest swing of the season on strike three.  Runner on 1st, 1 out.

Battles grounds into a 6-4-3 DP.  3 outs.  Comeback over.

Mid 8th.  Going to Birmingham 8, Going on the road for the regional 6.

Bottom 8th.

Pinckney strikes out swinging.  Sit down, bitch. 2 outs.

Williamson hits a routine grounder to Battles...who drops it transferring the ball to throw it.  E6.  Runner on 1st, 2 outs.

Delayed steal from Williamson.  Runner on 2nd, 2 outs.

Tamez the Transfer from Arkansas chops one off the plate (for the 47th time so far this series)...Wallace with an outstanding throw to get the out.  3 outs.

End 8th.  Looking for a rare win 8, Last chance 6.

Top 9th.  Last call for alkyhall.

Dylan Leach pinch hitting for Gregory.

(Editor's Note:  it might not have been the worst idea to pinch hit Leach for Stovall last inning instead of the guy who is a HBP magnet)

Leach pops out to 2nd.  1 out.

Wallace singles through the opening in RF where a 2nd baseman is supposed to be.  Runner on 1st, 1 out.

(Editor's Note:  You couldn't make a better promotional video arguing against the shift than this game...for both teams).

Turner flies out to LF.  Runner on 1st, 2 outs.

Big Game Bob (he's due) singles to LF.  Runners 1st and 2nd, 2 outs.  Still alive for a minute.

PITCHING CHANGE:  Gray coming in for this Oakley wearing at night wronghanded motherfucker.

This pitching change brought to you by Hope (yes, that one) taking off that dress to reveal a perfect body untainted by underwear or pubic hair, then walking slowly over to the nearest Razorback player and offering herself up without limitations. 

Lanzilli, who by my calculations still owes us a couple of runs, strikes out to end it. 

Alabama 8, Hogs 6. 

Goodbye, national seed.  Almost certainly goodbye to hosting as well.

The pitching was fine until last weekend. We’re not a great team but a lot you are acting like we’re sub .500 in conference and won’t make the tournament.

We’re a very frustrating team to watch that seems to play to the level of its opponent, but up until last weekend, we had played pretty well overall. I think the expectations of this season creates a perception that this team is worse than it is.

This team has zero fire or aggression.  Really nice team, though.  Likeable.

 :suicide:

I agree.  I looked at the pitching stats and seemingly every pitcher we threw today (pretty much everyone) sucked ass.  But we should have better hitting this year if you look at the guys who returned that were great last year.  Hopefully this loss inspires them.

This is all my fault. Never been to a Hogs baseball game before. Me and wifey are here to celebrate 41st anniversary. Bucket list and shit. Our expectations were so high we jinxed the team.

Go fuck yourself.  I bet half  of us fucked your wife.  JoeBob for sure.

I told my wife when it got to 18-3 that this was ‘getting house by Western Kentucky’ level of shitty.  This team just rolled over.

We’ve got too many guys simply playing out the string and lolling ahead to the draft. Fuck that.

ETA — meant “looking ahead,” but my autocorrect was pretty on point. Leaving it.
You had it right the first time.  These guys are a bunch of lollygaggers

It was pathetic. 

They lollygag the ball around the infield.  They lollygag their way down to first. They lollygag in and out of the dug out.

Disappointing but a lot of fans will still be able to travel to Stillwater, if that’s where we end up.

how does this work???

Per an Arkansas spokesperson, there will not be an official interim coach. Pitching coach Matt Hobbs will handle pitching decisions, and hitting coach Nate Thompson will manage hitters.

Nobody really gives a shit about this tournament. Unless it may get you into the big dance. Or you are LSU.

Looks like Alabama has already started.  It is yet to be seen when and if we actually start playing

Can you see DVH willingly giving it over to anyone? Hell, he didn't even let them name an interim for the game the other day.
