Previewing Arkansas-Auburn

Here are some links to get you ready for this weekend’s series:

That LH from Auburn has a 0.63 era in 14 IP and given up only 2 hits all yr! looks like we got our work cut out for us… we better hope Hollan comes out sharp in the first inning and does not get us behind

Vail may be very good, but his stats are padded with longer outings against Florida A&M and UAB. I don’t think he has seen a lineup anywhere near as good as he will see tonight.

On the flip side, Auburn’s lineup is going to be the best Arkansas has seen since Arlington. I tend to think Oklahoma State’s was the best so far on the schedule, but the Cowboys didn’t show it that day when Hollan was not at his best. Josh Holliday thought there were a lot of bad ABs that day and said his team was focused more on chasing the score than focusing on the next pitch.

Yes you always have to take that into consideration who he’s actually been facing… I have been impressed with our approach this year against LH… I see Bohro Savens and Stovall going the other way quite a bit.

I worry about how long it will take Holland to settle in and get his command. I do like the idea of Smith being in the bull pen the first 2 games just in case he is needed. The youth in the bull pen makes it hard for DVH to deal with right now.

ESPN+ still has the game scheduled for 4:00!!
Not on yet!!

game is 4 pm CST so not quite time for it.

I could have sworn that Matt said it had been moved to 2:00. Guess I misread his post.
