13-0 after 3
Great to see the bats come alive. Two sweeps in a row would be nice.
swept em, 9-4 final
"Maryland football: Where everybody gets hurt and the starting left tackle has an existential crisis."
Big week coming up. We should know where we stand after Liberty and 3 in Charlottesville. I'll gladly take a 2-2 week.
Honestly, 1-3 would be an accomplishment this week.
eamhokie94: Is your name Nazi in pig Latin?
I wouldn't complain about that either. I'd prefer not getting swept by the 'Hoos.
Seems like Sczef (sp?) is using more players and pitchers than Bakich did. It may be because we are deeper, maybe it will help us be fresher at the end of the year.
The key is not getting swept in an ACC series. 1 win a weekend gets you 10 conference wins. I think 13 gets you to the ACC tourney. 1st two series will be tough, UVA and FSU, but the teams the terps will be competing with also have tough match ups. Wake hosts UNC and Va Tech hosts Ga Tech. Duke and BC have Miami and FSU respectively
Everybody is 0-0 so anything can happen.
Kep gettin it done in noncon too
Is there a reason we don't play Georgia Tech? We have a series with every ACC school except them.
Go away, KA!
ACC baseball schedule is only 10 weeks long. I think this is the second year in a row we've skipped GT.
Our nine-game winning streak landed us 30th in the CBN poll.
Game tomorrow pushed back till May 1.
Due to expected inclement weather Wednesday, Maryland's scheduled game at Liberty has been postponed and rescheduled for Wednesday, May 1 at 3 p.m.
I think it is a 2 yr rotation, GT is off this year and last, before that it was Duke. I know some people from the the coastal always say "woes is me" becuase they think the atlantic only has two teams maybe 3 (FSU and Clemson NCS) while saying the coastal has 4 if not 5(UNC,UVA MIA, GT and VT)
Who knows how things will be sched. next year? SYR does not have baseball,
Could possibly add ND next year so in that scenario I think they'd join the Atlantic and Pitt would be in the coastal.
I thought I read somewhere that they might be eliminating divisions for some sports and I thought baseball was one of them, but I think that was before ND.
Also I think ACC is going SEC route by adding playoff teams to conf. tourn next year to avoid the the NCAA arguement, "you didn't even qualify for your own conf. tourny"
either way i think sched will be a mess for every sport in every conference as it all gets sorted out.
Who gets the Sunday start? Robinson pitched at LSU, but Mooney has pitched well in his two starts too during the 4 game sets.
I think you go with both, dont let UVA see either guy more than 2 atbats, and for the guy that doesnt start, have him come in with a clean slate(beginning of an inning no one on).
Robinson has been getting hit around, i think Mooney gets the start
I'm leaving the same way I came in
Marquee Mound Matchup—Mid-Atlantic Style
Maryland's Jimmy Reed vs. Virginia's Brandon Waddell
Assuming UVa. can clear its field of snow before Friday, the ACC's opening day will feature an intriguing battle between one of the nation's best senior lefthanders (Reed) and one of the best freshman lefties (Waddell). While Hughes said the Blacksburg area did not get any snow, Cavaliers coach Brian O'Connor said the Charlottesville area received about 10-12 inches of snow Wednesday, which could cause the series opener to be pushed back to Saturday, but he expressed confidence that the games will be played this weekend.
And the Reed-Waddell matchup should be a treat, whether on Friday or Saturday. These two southpaws have taken completely different paths to their respective roles as staff aces. Reed spent all of his first two seasons and half of his junior year as a reliever, finally moving into the rotation last April after he had racked up eight saves over the season's first two months. Waddell, on the other hand, started his collegiate career as the Friday starter and quickly made a name for himself on the national stage, striking out 15 over six scoreless innings in his second start against Toledo.
Maryland coach John Szefc said Reed did not have his best stuff in his first two outings, though he more than held his own in a 1-0 loss at Louisiana State on Opening Day, then picked up the win a week later against Oakland. But he was at the top of his game in Week Three against Princeton, when he struck out 10 over six scoreless innings. On the season, he is 2-1, 1.50 with 21 strikeouts and six walks in 18 innings.
Reed's fastball sits consistently in the 89-91 range, and he has incorporated a cutter into his repertoire, which also includes a solid curveball and changeup.
"I'd say his biggest assets are his mental toughness and makeup on the mound, but also he's able to command the strike zone," Szefc said. "You see a lot of prospects who are velocity guys—they might have one secondary pitch. You're talking about a guy here who has three or four pitches with command and respectable velocity for a lefthander. He's pitched in the Cape and pitched at a high level in the ACC for three years. He's the kind of guy anybody would welcome on their pitching staff."

Man it would be AMAZING to get one of our patented early season ACC series wins against UVA.
Towson baseball officially cut. Wonder if we'll pick off some of their talent for next year.
Chris Korman @ChrisKorman
Towson baseball players are wearing black tape over the name of the school during game today after getting word team had been cut.
When players walked out of meeting, they noticed 10-15 police officers apparently positioned to protect the president and athletic director.
Towson has 5 men's sports and 13 women's sports now.
Their student body is over 60% female. Between that and football taking up so much money it's not that shocking the disparity.
