Is our pitching too thin?

I keep getting the feeling that our pitching, while good, is too thin. We are winning games, but you can see the stress on the pitching staff.

This team has a chance to be really special. Could you imagine if we had avoided pitching injuries?

Do we have the pitching to keep up this torrid pace, or are we coming back to earth. This sure is a fun team. I hope we manage to keep it up.

If tac can get going look out!!!

Most college teams lack depth in pitching. This team has enough good arms. Some of them are still inexperienced. What this team has is more depth at the plate. I see a batting order without holes right now. Jared Gates returning to good health is going to give them solid hitting 1-9. Eric Cole is starting to come around and that’s another good sign.

Thanks Clay. If we cant out pitch them, we have shown we can out hit them.

I keep thinking this team can be special.

I got to thinking about this strategy yesterday. What if we went with our mid-week strategy of throwing a bunch of pitchers against the SEC ace on Friday, then throw our ace on Saturday, and then have a bunch available for Sunday. Is this crazy. It seems like the Friday night game is the most tense, let’s just keep changing up pitchers, and then some will be able to come back on Sunday…???

I think in the past, we have saved our nominal Friday guy for Saturday, and maybe semi-conceded Friday to an LSU or Vandy ace. I assume LSU will start Poche on Friday. And I assume we will see Knight. Sure hope Stephan gets back on track. Sunday by committee.

Too bad about the three pitchers we lost for the year. We would have been really tough with those guys available.

DVH held out Nick Schmidt on Friday against David Price (Vandy). Basically conceded the Friday game, and came back to win the next two.
The next year they faced each other in Fayetteville. Neither got the decision, but we won when Sean Jones scored from second on a sac fly to deep center

LSU will start Alex Lange on Friday, who has started all the Friday games so far. Lange is LSU’s best pitcher, although Poche’ has better stats to this point.

There is nothing in college baseball like the intensity of a Friday night in the SEC - unless it’s Saturday or Sunday in the SEC. Van Horn says they all count the same. Try to get to 15 or 16 and you are probably in the NCAA tournament. And those 30!games are going to prep you for a run to Omaha.
