Re: “Pearls About Swine College World Series recap: one strike away

I'll interject about the fatal play briefly: replays show that, in my estimation, Cole and Shaddy are both at fault here. I think the exuberance of the moment got to Shaddy, because that's a very difficult play for a second baseman to make, but Cole didn't seem assertive enough in calling off his incoming mates for a ball that, quite honestly, should have been his from the get-go. In short, Shaddy tried too hard to make a play he shouldn't have, and Cole didn't do enough to make a play he should have.

But, in the moment, you cannot begrudge these guys. That is not an easy play under any circumstances, and Cronin bears some culpability for yielding a leadoff walk (those always come back to bite you) and not being able to get the heat on his fastball in the 9th. To be honest, I think Van Horn pulled Barrett Loseke a bit too quickly, trying to win a 1-on-1 matchup rather than the game, largely because he's been our most consistent and dominating reliever the past several weeks.

And this offense...save for Koch having two much needed good ABs on Tuesday and Bonfield putting a charge into a double late on Wednesday, these guys just aren't in a groove. That's a testament to the quality of Oregon State's frontline starters and relievers as much as anything. The good news? Those guys are all shelved for tonight.

Re: “Consistency

I clearly jinxed our poor Hogs: a middling, .500 Mississippi State team playing with an interim coach just swept the Razorbacks in Starkville, getting a little payback for Arkansas taking three at Baum last year. Nevertheless, thanks to the competitive nature of the SEC West this season, the Hogs remain tied at the top with Ole Miss (they'd lose the tiebreaker after having lost two of three to the Rebels) at 10-8. There's a huge two-game nonconference battle tonight (4/24) and tomorrow (4/25) at Baum Stadium against No. 4 Texas Tech, which may dictate regional hosting later, and then the Hogs draw SEC West bottom-dweller Alabama and No. 18 Texas A&M for their last two home series, while facing an atypically average LSU and a better-than-expected Georgia on the road.

Arkansas can get a Top 8 national seed if it wins eight of those 12 SEC games and sweeps Texas Tech. That would be a 10-4 mark over the final 14 regular season games, good for a 38-17 overall mark, and a good showing in the SEC tourney would bolster that further. But after the Bulldogs took the legs out from beneath the Hogs over the weekend at Baum, that bounce-back needs to happen quickly and authoritatively.

Re: “Jason Rapert spreads his message

They don't make Charmin rolls big, thick, or cushy enough to wipe an asshole like Rapert clean.

Re: “Judge objects to trainer's references to Black Lives Matter

When someone says that another doesnt have a racist bone in his body, then that person is actually made up of 206 perfectly racist bones.

Re: “AG Rutledge celebrates final judgment against overtime pay expansion

Maybe you should stop playing golf and start learning to read, you tone-deaf dipshit.
