It’s amazing how fast baseball season seems to come around every year. And at least for me, the season is a blur and before you know it, it’s summer.
Any info from the weekend scrimmages?
I posted this in another thread:
I was unable to go to any of the scrimmages this weekend because everyone in my house was sick.
Based on what I’ve heard, the starting pitching has been pretty good. The starters in the scrimmages are Isaiah Campbell, Kevin Kopps, Cody Scroggins, Kole Ramage, Patrick Wicklander and Jacob Kostyshock.
If I were betting, I think the opening weekend rotation, as of now, would be Campbell, Ramage and either Wicklander or Kostyshock. My guess is Wicklander will be a starter because he is left-handed and it would keep the team from going right-right-right on the weekend.
Casey Martin has been really good at the plate the last couple of weeks - just a tough out. I think he has three home runs in five scrimmages.
One name to watch is Andrew Stanley, who I think could see some playing time as a DH or pinch hitter. Stanley is a freshman from Searcy and there are some around the program who think he has the best swing on the team. He had a home run in the scrimmage on media day, and he had a double each of the past two days.
Another pitcher who looked good in his outing on Friday was Connor Noland.
Looking forward to watching on ESPN until we return from the Keys and can go to the games
You’re probably not going to appreciate this too much, young man . . . but, welcome to the mantra of advancing age!
