    Wow. Good job Rebels! Looks like a football game score!

    Don’t get your hopes up, that score is pretty inflated with 4 VT errors. The pitching was more like a high school team except for their starter, who still wasn’t much more than that.

    Barrett showed again last night that he definetely shouldn’t be a weekend starter, giving up 4 runs on 8 hits through 4 innings. He has a strong arm and can nail the strike zone, but I think that’s his downfall. He’s too predictable.

    I still don’t think that we’re a top 25 team, too much inconsistency with the infield. Mort played well at short, but Ferguson let a ball get through that should have been fielded, something that has really become routine in the past season or two. We still haven’t found the right infield players since Coz left.

    But, Miller played very very well at third. I think he’s found a new home there. He really plays that position to a tee.

    Hope we can get the sweep this weekend, if but for nothing more than confidence for these guys.

    There was a good crowd last night at the game, especially for a nonconference game. I agree with Barrett, we need a new weekend starter. My first choice would be to move up pomeranz and Irwin and pitch Nathan Baker on Sunday, something he did very well two seasons ago. Barrett gave up 8 hits in 3+ innings, while McKean, Broyles, and Tracy only gave up 3 hits the last 6 innings and no runs. That shows just how predictable he is. He was rocked in the time he was out there. Other than that, I think the team looked very good. Our hitting is really starting to come around, and the errors only allowed us to get about 5 of the runs or so. We were really locked in, and their pitcher, who only gave up 1 run to Vandy through 7 innings and is on the preseason watch list for player of the year, was hit pretty hard by us. We got 5 ER on him in 5 innings.

    Oh and by the way, the pitcher that Vermont threw in the 6th inning was absolutely awful. He faced 9 batters, walked 2, hit 2, and gave up 5 hits. His final line: 9 batters faced, 9 earned runs, no outs. Ouch. How’s that for getting rocked?
