"Might want to walk this guy"….HOMER
Of course, base open with two outs. I don't get pitching to the guy who has most power in baseball; might be one of 2-3 dudes who probably hits one out with this wind.

But we struck him out first time with no one on so why not!


I'm not pitching to him there, he even called him a Halloween nightmare but yet pitches to him with 2 on and 2 out and first base open???

It was 1st and 2nd. No one is intentionally walking the bases loaded in that situation to face their three hitter. Just don't float one middle middle
Sure you are. Do you know who their 2 hitter is?
Well aware. The guy who just struck out on three straight fastballs with good location. Don't throw it down the middle to him and we're fine.
How do you say that with a straight face about a guy batting .411 with 33 homers?

Literally by his numbers, the fact that he struck out on the previous at bat meant he was likely due for a hit lol

There are people saying NC State should have issued an intentional walk with runners at 1st and 2nd, thus loading the bases?

EDIT: In the second inning?
100%, and don't think it's even questionable

This game is a good demonstration of why losing the first game typically means youre donezo. Both teams already on their 2nd pitcher

Whitaker now in. I love Avent but this was a colossal blunder with the season on the line.

Absolutely with the way Dom was pitching that inning.

Yes. And they should have.

Avent himself said he was terrified of cags. And he let cags beat him

I'm fine with starting him. But he should have gotten the hook way earlier. Ridiculous

Sometimes the threat of the bases being loaded is the boogeyman.

"There's teams in this event that have seen him for 2.5 years who know... there are ACC teams who see #s, video... we got him first time, we can pitch to him." - Commentators right now.

I don't care about the bases loaded as much as who is at the plate. There are certain guys in State's lineup you probably don't care if there's 9 guys on base, you'll see if they can get a hit and make it matter.

The UF guy has the most power in baseball.

Look, I am not trying to put down anyone who thinks the UF dude should have been walked. You all have a right to opinion, even if it is drastically different than mine.

Announcers don't seem to think Kentucky would've pitched to him in that situation.

Or TENN

But those teams probably don't view the bases being loaded as Freddy Kruger.

That is an old school approach. Two outs and base open put him on.

I once saw Joe Madden walk Josh Hamilton with the bases loaded.

If you dont have enough confidence in a guy that you have to quick hook him in the first 2 innings, you shouldnt start him

Announcer: "I don't think Kentucky or Tennessee would have pitched to him. They just know."

There is almost no difference between bases loaded and 1st/2nd with 2 outs. Get the out and it's no harm no foul.

The batter after Caglione is not a threat.

It would be like Florida walking a better Alex Makarewicz to load the bases in order to get Drew Lanphere at bat with 2 outs. Why is that hard to believe?

We'll be okay, we just struck him out!

This is true. Easier to walk the bases loaded if you have a guy on the mound who knows where the plate is located

I actually can't see the argument for not walking cags. Like, at all

Because I don't think they'd do it, or most any other team on the face of the planet.

Won't matter at all if the bats don't wake up. UF's pitchers aren't setting the world on fire either.

Every single seems to be "Avent sucks" here recently. Theres 7 more at bats for the pack in a 3 run game. Was Sullivan an idiot for starting Caglione? Lol

Dom was gonna have to give us a start either today or tomorrow. Avent said he thought Dom gave us the best chance to dominate their lineup and that showed early, fell apart in the 2nd. Giving Whit the ball here is the right move obviously.

Math just changes and Coop starts tomorrow if you win

Was Drew Lanphere the MVP of the regional? The guy after him is much less of a threat than Cags, but that's too much hyperbole.
