For those that say we don't use Smith on Fridays, this is not a three day weekend. It is managed totally different. We are off today win or lose vs KY. How things were managed during the season really doesn't matter.

Personally, I think you bring Smith in to close in the 9th. Maybe EA preferred Duden vs that part of the line-up?? Who knows but how he managed a 3 game weekend should have no bearing on Friday's strategy.


Imo it's a simple question. You need 3 outs in ninth inning and you have your full bullpen available. Who is your best guy? The answer to that question should have been on the mound. Monday was irrelevant at that point bc anybody you threw would have still been good on Monday.

So you can answer that ? With whoever you want.


I don't think State necessarily thinks Smith is a better bullpen option than Dudan. I think that showed in staying with him there to start the 9th.
Dudan best pitch is his slider. Why are we going fb away in that situation to a LH. If anything bust 97 on his hands. Then with Smith in the 10th, can we at least show a fb up and then come back with the slider. The guy was sitting on slider get him off of it a little bit by showing a 93 fb and then come back to it.
Because that guy was hitting almost .500 on anything middle/in. Barely .100 on anything on the outer half. You pitch Nicholson away. That's been how you get him out all season. You probably knew that tho.


Yeah that worked out well. LH like to let pitches get deep. Exactly what we let happen. Would much preferred that guy trying to get his barrel to 97 in or Dudan's slider.

Nicholson hit a good pitch for a HR. The game winner by Daly was a BP pitch middle up. I may have been able to go yard with that one.

Daly Game winner:

Nicholson HR: (Dudan caught more of the middle than I thought) Still on the outer half though

McCarthy HR: hanging breaking ball middle in

Man, you really don't know your ass from a hole in the wall, do you? This particular lefthanded hitter liked the ball inside, the data has shown it and it's why the staff pitched him away. He went yard on a defensive swing. I'm a lefthanded hitter, so I have a good idea what we like. haha

Lemme guess, had we pitched him inside and he turns on one and takes it 380 for a bomb, you're on here saying we should've thrown him away b/c he barely hit .100 on balls away.

Typical post from the travel ball king after a loss. No show after wins, of course.

I am guessing you are washed up at this point but I am sure you were turning on 97 during your illustrious career.

I am guessing you are washed up at this point but I am sure you were turning on 97 during your illustrious career.
I'm 46, numbnuts. Of course I'm washed up, been washed up since I quit playing ball back in '98. Wasn't anything "illustrious" about my career other than being a really good HS player that got a chance to play in college. I learned a lil something over the years playing high level summer ball (what you now call travel ball) as well as 4 years of Legion ball as well as coaching at summer camps at unc to make some extra scratch. I should've done the travel ball route like you so I could know ball. L O L

Yeah, of course I turned on 97. Any decent ball player can turn on a fast ball. I hit hanging breaking pitches too. I struck out against dudes throwing 80 same as I struck out against dudes humming 95 in on the regular. A draft pick by the Oakland A's in the '96 draft couldn't get me out in Legion ball, a wooden bat league we played in or during intrasquad scrimmages in practice in college. Dude threw in the upper to mid 90s but it was straight as an arrow. It's called timing dumb dumb. Conversely, a Greg Maddox look alike that signed with unc out of Asheboro HS (I think it was Asheboro) was hell to face b/c dude could spot his FB and had an absolutely nasty change piece. He was harder to hit than dudes throwing 95 at times. I don't know if dude ever hit 90.

What's that got to do with your complete and utter lack of baseball knowledge and the fact that you only come around here to piss and moan after losses?

My story was I could hit, I could throw from any place on the diamond and throw a curve ball and change up. But during my last tryout for the Cleveland Indians at Grainger Stadium in 1983 I was labeled the slowest man the scout(s) had ever seen thanks to 3 knee surgeries while I was at State.

I don't think State necessarily thinks Smith is a better bullpen option than Dudan. I think that showed in staying with him there to start the 9th.
Dudan best pitch is his slider. Why are we going fb away in that situation to a LH. If anything bust 97 on his hands. Then with Smith in the 10th, can we at least show a fb up and then come back with the slider. The guy was sitting on slider get him off of it a little bit by showing a 93 fb and then come back to it.
Because that guy was hitting almost .500 on anything middle/in. Barely .100 on anything on the outer half. You pitch Nicholson away. That's been how you get him out all season. You probably knew that tho.


Yeah that worked out well. LH like to let pitches get deep. Exactly what we let happen. Would much preferred that guy trying to get his barrel to 97 in or Dudan's slider.
Man, you really don't know your ass from a hole in the wall, do you? This particular lefthanded hitter liked the ball inside, the data has shown it and it's why the staff pitched him away. He went yard on a defensive swing. I'm a lefthanded hitter, so I have a good idea what we like. haha

Lemme guess, had we pitched him inside and he turns on one and takes it 380 for a bomb, you're on here saying we should've thrown him away b/c he barely hit .100 on balls away.

Typical post from the travel ball king after a loss. No show after wins, of course.




I am guessing you are washed up at this point but I am sure you were turning on 97 during your illustrious career.
I'm 46, numbnuts. Of course I'm washed up, been washed up since I quit playing ball back in '98. Wasn't anything "illustrious" about my career other than being a really good HS player that got a chance to play in college. I learned a lil something over the years playing high level summer ball (what you now call travel ball) as well as 4 years of Legion ball as well as coaching at summer camps at unc to make some extra scratch. I should've done the travel ball route like you so I could know ball. L O L

Yeah, of course I turned on 97. Any decent ball player can turn on a fast ball. I hit hanging breaking pitches too. I struck out against dudes throwing 80 same as I struck out against dudes humming 95 in on the regular. A draft pick by the Oakland A's in the '96 draft couldn't get me out in Legion ball, a wooden bat league we played in or during intrasquad scrimmages in practice in college. Dude threw in the upper to mid 90s but it was straight as an arrow. It's called timing dumb dumb. Conversely, a Greg Maddox look alike that signed with unc out of Asheboro HS (I think it was Asheboro) was hell to face b/c dude could spot his FB and had an absolutely nasty change piece. He was harder to hit than dudes throwing 95 at times. I don't know if dude ever hit 90.

What's that got to do with your complete and utter lack of baseball knowledge and the fact that you only come around here to piss and moan after losses?
My story was I could hit, I could throw from any place on the diamond and throw a curve ball and change up. But during my last tryout for the Cleveland Indians at Grainger Stadium in 1983 I was labeled the slowest man the scout(s) had ever seen thanks to 3 knee surgeries while I was at State.


just tell everyone you played at State and set records at Grainger Stadium during your minor league tryouts. No one has to know what the actual record was.
I guess I was so slow the stop watch had to stop so I could catch up.


Your anecdote makes me think of some "Major League" trivia. They cast Wesley Snipes as Willie Mays Hayes without knowing he was actually slow as ***** They always showed him in slow motion and had the other actors run really slow so he would look faster.

I think it's time to tell everyone...

I'm actually tre turner. Everyone who has ever argued with me has been wrong. I've been checking these forums in the dugout in-between innings of Phillies games.
We know that's not true. Trea has never been so negative nor would he sht talk Avent like you do.

Trea also knows how to spell his own name.

haha


It's all a ploy to make it not so obvious

For those that say we don't use Smith on Fridays, this is not a three day weekend. It is managed totally different. We are off today win or lose vs KY. How things were managed during the season really doesn't matter.

Personally, I think you bring Smith in to close in the 9th. Maybe EA preferred Duden vs that part of the line-up?? Who knows but how he managed a 3 game weekend should have no bearing on Friday's strategy.

I actually just read that today. Funny stuff. And yes I used every substance I could find to give my breaking ball a few inches.

Good news is if State wins today they should be playing in the evening game the rest of the week. 2pm stinks

Winner of Florida/NC State vs Loser of Texas A&M/Kentucky 7pm

6/19 Wed
Winner of FSU/UNC vs Tennessee 2pm
Florida/NC State vs Texas A&M/Kentucky 7pm

6/20 Thu
If Necessary 2pm (I imagine this would still be the Tennessee game since they are the early game on Wed)
If Necessary 7pm (Florida/NC State vs Texas A&M/Kentucky)

I'm late to the party on UF. It seems they underperformed during the regular season, might have been the last team in the field, and got hot...anything I'm missing? I know they also have a DUDE in Caglianone but anything outside of him? State +110/+1.5 on Fanatics at the moment.
Y'all means ALL.

They were ranked preseason #2 and generally in the top 5. Season fell apart. I heard several people the last few days refer to Cagliaone as the best player in college baseball. I thought that was Charlie Condon?

I know that but they aren't saying best pitcher just best player. last week it was Condon. This week it's Cagliaone. Who will it be next game we play?

I prefer to have Whit on the mound today but that's just me. Hopefully this decision to go with Dom is more than "that's what we have done all year" and they see something in how he is a better choice v the UF line up.

Keeping Cags and Shelton in the park is the key IMO. Both of them are lefties
