Beede to start Game 1

Posted: 6/22/2014 12:07 PM

Beede to start Game 1 


Per Corbins Presser. While he did say it'd be a combination of Beede/Buehler I think Beede starts and unless he doesn't make it through 3 we will see Buehler in game 2.

Why I think Beede starts is that they have an outstanding pitcher in game 1, and we may save a premium guy for Game 2 (given that Beede right now isn't a premium guy, which is stupid to say about a 1st rounder).

Re: Beede to start Game 1 


I thought this would probably be how we went about things. If Beede starts, I hope we keep Buehler off the mound at all costs for game 1. It would be a shame to send him out there if we're in the hole and then he pitches a terrific game but we can't make up the hits. I'd rather just rely on the bullpen if Beede can't get it done. Maybe even try Ferguson again.

If Beede gets us in a hole and he brings in Beuhler, we might as well take 2nd and be pleased. Beuhler is the best pitcher on this team right now, and it'd be far more intelligent to just take the first loss and battle back with Beuhler day 2. I wanted Beuhler to start game 1, but since Beede is either terrible or amazing, I think starting him against their ace is a good decision.

He can't pitch both can he?  That would leave a suddenly think staff sitting on fumes for the rest of the way.

Re: Beede to start Game 1 


Winning that first game would be huge no matter how it has to get done. That leaves a deal where UVa would have to sweep the next two or we get a huge trophy for the McGugin Center lobby. Don't believe everything you read about who is going to pitch when etc. anyway. Remember poach's "Jedi mind tricks" about who would play QB? I just really want to see us win it all. If we don't, I still love our baseball program - but would rather get that ship.

Re: Beede to start Game 1 


Didn't hear him say it but obviously he wants Tyler to go deep into the game. Interesting if he did say they would both pitch as to its impact on Tyler's psyche. Corbs is the man, intrigued by his choice of words and intent here.

More to the point I think we get the "good" Beede here or he gets the hook very early and can be used later in this UVA series.

Re: Beede to start Game 1 


The truth is that we will need an effective outing from Beede at some point in order to win this thing. We can't "hide" him and expect to win. I have no problem with Beede starting game 1. He simply needs to pitch better.

The word from my boots on the ground is that Buehler is going to start game 1.

At some point Young Beedah is going to have to do his best Ricky Vaughn and say to hell with this wild crap and just go after hitters.

I agree. I think he just tries to do too much sometimes, paint corners, spot pitches, etc. he just needs to throw strikes and make them hit the ball and trust his defense. It doesn't matter how many he strikes out, it only matters how many he gets out.

I watched the presser & didn't hear him say that 


I heard the reporter ask him who would start and he explained that they really hadn't had time to talk about it yet but they would of course look at Beede and Beuhler. I took that to mean it would probably be one of the two (not both) and if he said something about pitching them bothin the 1st game then I totally missed that and he certainly did not elaborate on it.

Can someone please let the coaching staff know immediately that bek has weighed in on this so Corbin can avoid doing something stupid?

Re: Beede to start Game 1 


Beede might get in a couple of innings? If Beuhler starts, who is  starting game 2? And then who do we have for game 3 if needed?

Re: Beede to start Game 1 


Bek is correct for once, you have to win game 1 to have a chance and Beuhler is our best chance.

Re: Beede to start Game 1 


We have to find pitchers for the first two games.  B Miller, Fulmer and Stone are out until at least Wednesday.

Buehler gets one start.

That leave the choice of other starter to Beede, Ferguson or J Miller?

If I have to choose there, I have to go with the 1st round draft choice.

Looking at options, I like giving Beede the Monday start.  If he is on, we can win the opener.

Buehler on Tuesday

Relief Monday-Tuesday is going to be a problem as both B Miller and Stone went long innings Fri-Sat.  That leaves Ravanelle, J Miller, Rice, Bowden and Kilichowski to finish those games.  We need either Beede or Buehler or both to go a LONG way.

Start Ferguson on Wednesday.  You have B Miller and Stone both available for a number of innings each

Re: Beede to start Game 1 


Any chance Virginia has any tired pitchers? Probably not. I hope we have enough guys to get through it.  Maybe play several pitchers a couple of innings if one can't get through many innings.

Re: Beede to start Game 1 


I remember years ago when Corbs would start a bullpen guy because he was the most rested. Would Ravanelle be that unlikely starter in this case? Maybe.

Re: Beede to start Game 1 


I was on board with Buehler starting, but the more I think about starting Beede the more I'm starting to like the idea. He was always are Friday starter so he might as well start today. Plus we are playing UVA's ace so why not throw our 1st rounder? If we lose we have a solid Buehler to help us get game 2. Imagine we started Buehler and he loses against UVA's shut down ace and next thing u know we have to start Beede under an enormous amount of pressure in his fragile state.

Beede is a 1st round, 5 star recruit 


He has to start!

I mean both Toronto and San Francisco wanted him. It's a no brainer.
