Not sure why Chase Nixon's ability to play LF is relevant to a discussion about him replacing a DH

Because he's not replacing Sosa. Too much potential power from Sosa.

So the only reasonable argument is for him to replace Heavner, move Luke back to 2nd and put Chase in left field.

We need some power at DH. Chase has 0 HR's this year. Avent stuck with Sosa through his illness same as he did Whitaker. He's playing the best cards he thinks he has.

MJ Morris then LJ Thomas and now Chase Nixon


By the way nobody is saying Chase is a savior. In fact nobody is saying we need a savior. The discussion is really whether Chase should play or Heavner play against RHPs and that is a reasonable debate.


Chase hasn't played at all in Regionals or Super Regionals and yesterday was the first game we lost in either of them. If it's just a discussion and not about winning/losing why wasn't there a discussion yesterday about playing Chase after we won 18-2? Sosa and Heavner were 2/11 combined


I've been asking the entire time why is Chase not in against righties. Nobody asked this Saturday because most of the lineup was mashing regardless. You or I could have been in for Heavner and we still would have scored 10+.

Chase is a perfectly capable left fielder defensively too. Don't know that whole line of thinking is about.



No he's not


Yes Chase is fine. Played LF his whole life. He is adequate out there.
lol. B/c "adequate" is good enough. Just b/c he played LF his whole life doesn't mean he's just not good enough. But you know that.

Tyler McDonough never played CF and ended up being one of the best ever here.
Vance Honeycutt played MIF until he got to unc....best OFer they've ever had and will be a first round draft pick. Only played out there for 3 years now and he's more than "adequate".

But sure, let's be happy with adequate b/c it fits some ignorant and wrong narrative.

Some people are only happy when they're mad.


Tell me about a time Chase was a liability in the field.
Gimme some time and i'll find you some film.

I can also find plays that his lil brother made that he'd never be able to make b/c he's so slow.

Keep being wrong though, just gives everyone more data about how little you know about baseball.

Here's the most important stat...we're 6-2 since 5/17 which is the last time Chase got more than 2 ABs in a game. We're winning.

All good tho, slick.

You come off very condescending brother. Back it down a little bit. Trust me there are people on here who know more about baseball and certainly the subject at hand than you do.

Yeah, that's on purpose. I'm glad you caught my tone as intended.

There probably are people that know more, actually, I can guarantee you there are, but you and borowolf most certainly aren't two of them.

the recipe to beat georgia was perfectly laid out in game 1... use the small ball to open up the offense and once georgia is out of sync, its opens up the long ball. timely pitching helps of course but the key on offense has already been proven.

And some of us that played BB at State agree with him sometimes. I can pretty much tell you what Sam Esposito would do as well as Ray Tanner.

Since Heavner entered the starting lineup he's hitting .280 with a .392 OBP and only struck out 9 times. He's also one of the best middle infielders left playing. And that's against FSU, Norfolk State (throw it out and still really good), UVA, WFU, VT, Duke, and the teams from the postseason.

For reference, JT Jarrett was a .251/.258 hitter in 2021/2022 getting on base at a .340/.360 clip. You need those guys in your lineup.

I'm having a hard time figuring out if that's "adequate".

Once again, you can't replace Sosa. He's a legitimate home run threat. The optimal lineup against this UGA pitching staff is Luke at Second, Chase in Left, Heavner off the bench. People are gonna do these mental gymnastics and act like Chase has one leg or something but that's nonsense.

First 2 pitches are normally the best pitch you see during an at bat.
