What happened to Kiene?
LSU is pitching a lefty too
Weather should be good for hitters, warmer and wind slightly blowing out

"I like fixing broken things" - Kevin Plank
14-3 after 7.5 in

its funny talking to 7erps about how frustrating Friday's loss can be because of this exact scenario once the difference in pitching depth can really be displayed.

What kind of record do you think they need before ACC play?
4 with Oakland
1 @ JMU
4 with Princeton
1 @ Liberty
10-3 would be ideal, but I think 9-4 would be good too. four games series can be tough to sweep, but both will be the opponents first games. Mid week games can be a crap shoot for both teams.
9-4 or even 8-5. Like you said, 4 game series are tough and JMU is not a gimmie. Either way, the team will have to make hay in conference if they want a shot at the tourney.
JMU dropped 2 at Coastal Car.
Liberty went 1-2 at South Carolina.
those mid weeks will prob. be staff days esp. coming off 4 gm sets, but the same can be said for JMU and LIb.
I'll ask again, what happened to Kiene? He's still listed on the roster. That's a big loss to the offense if he isn't playing.
Stichead's take on Oakland: College Baseball Today
OAKLAND (25-31, 15-6)
2012 ISR: 213
Starters Returning: 6
Weekend Starters: 1
Mid-Week Starters: 0
Key Relievers (15+inns.): 4
All Conference Candidates:
RHP Russell Luxton (3-5, 3.67, 10svs)
LHP Jason Hager (5-3, 4.34)
- Lots of positives from that 2012 team for the Grizzlies, including a school-best 15-6 mark in conference play and going 21-8 down the stretch of the season. Not surprisingly, head coach John Musachio was named the Summit League Coach of the Year as well.
- OU will have to make due without Tim Ryan, who became the program leader in games played, at-bats and stolen bases while hitting .339 last season. But one record-setter they DO get back for 2013 is relief ace Russell Luxton, who set the program high-water mark with 10 saves last season, holding opposing batters to a .247 average in his 49 innings of work.
- The three most-used starters on the mound have moved on in Jeff Gorecki (the Summit leader in ERA), Hayden Fox and Brady Ademek, who combined for 37 starts on the mound last year. Jason Hager made nine starts last year and will be the most experienced arm returning.
- Oakland has been to the title round of the Summit Tournament in two of the last three seasons and this time around they’ll have the luxury of hosting the post-season soiree on their home field.
I immediately wondered the same thing once I saw the box scores from this weekend. The only thing I could dig up was from the infielders preview on umterps:
"Kiene made 31 starts at first base last season, but may DH and split time with freshman LaMonte Wade at first. Wade, who entered the fall as an outfielder, surprised the coaching staff with his defensive ability in the fall.
'A good first baseman makes the rest of your infield better,' said Szefc. 'If you throw in his vicinity, he is going to catch it or pick it. LaMonte is as good a defender at first base at the college level that I have been around in probably 10 years.'"
So it sounds like Szefc was sacrificing offense for defense. I don't think I like the call though, considering the power Kiene brings to the lineup. Not to mention, more experience.
Check your PMs.
eamhokie94: Is your name Nazi in pig Latin?
Yeah it sucks, happened to us all of the time.
Will WMUC be doing some of the games this weekend?
Weather doesn't look too promising, may end up being two DH
Looks like they are gonna try to get the 1st two games in on Friday, I haven't seen any announcement, but the sched. has 12:00/ 3:30 on 2/22 and then a DH on sun starting at 11:00 AM
Haven't seen the probables, but I assume Reed gm 1
Do you bump Kirkpatrick up for the second game Fri. or back for the 1st on Sun.? I say back to Sun.
i assume all four are 7 in now. or maybe a 9 and a 7 each DH

Pitching and game notes:
Game 1 (Friday), Noon: LHP Jimmy Reed (0-1, 1.80 ERA) vs. Jason Hager (5-3, 4.34 ERA)
Game 2 (Friday), Approx. 3:30 p.m.: RHP Kevin Mooney (0-0, 4.50 ERA) vs. Jake Paulson, 2.08 ERA)
Game 3 (Sunday), 11 a.m.: RHP Brady Kirkpatrick (0-1, 2.84 ERA) vs. Tim Koons (2-0, 3.10 ERA)
Game 4 (Sunday), Approx. 2:30 p.m.: LHP Alex Robinson (0-1, 12.00 ERA) vs. TBA
Also states WMUC will be doing 3 of 4 games.
Oakland was #221 in the RPI last season. First games of the season. They went 9-25 in the non-conference last year. You've got to think that anything less than 3/4 is a huge disappointment.
Hopefully, both pitching and hitting will get some healthy stats, some confidence and get a few wins. I think with the weather they may only get 3 games in depending when stuff hits tom afternoon/ evening. Lefty-lefty Aces mactch up should be good for game 1
