Re: CWS Game Thread: Vanderbilt (1-0) vs. Virginia (0-1) - Game 


After having seen UVA's offense yesterday, I actually like Beede's chances a little more than I did before the series started.  Maybe this is just hopeful optimism, but UVA wasnt up there looking to talk walks or get hit.  They were looking to tattoo the ball... which they did with regularity.  And they were often swinging at balls outside the strikezone.  Normally thats a problem but they kept hitting anything thrown up there.


If they do that again tonight, I think they'll have a much harder time.  Beede's arguably got the best stuff on the staff.  He just cant always find the strikezone.  But that may not be as big of a problem against UVA.  Maybe they change their strategy tonight and take more pitches.  Maybe they start sticking their elbows out a little more.  But Beede could very easily be "effectively wild" tonight.  I dont know that we necessarily need "good" Beede, we just need "not awful" Beede.   If he is throwing pitches 4 feet in front of the plate and hitting batters left and right, he'll be in trouble.  But if he is throwing his 96 mph fastball with movement 6 inches outside the strikezone, UVA may be swinging at that.  And they aren't hitting that.

I bet Virginia at least initially will be looking to see if Beede will have the strike zone or not. Who wouldn't like a few free runs. But if Beede is on, I like our chances, against anyone really. But when you have those nights like he and Kirby had, you just have to feel for the young men. Imagine how they feel after the loss. Tough. Go Dores!!!!

Kirby has another year of college ball to set it right.  Beede's final college game is tonight, then off to Single-A.

So, in other words, I don't feel so bad for Kirby but certainly would for TB if he doesn't have a good outing tonight.

Does that make sense?

Guys, I am so nervous I can't think straight.  I got virtually nothing done at work today and now pace between the TV in the den and the TV in the study, where I am now.  We are on the edge of something wonderful.  A NC for VU could launch this team to even bigger and better things.  It could spread to football, basketball, and more. 

Just look at the jump in applications for the school when the football team wins 9 two years in a row.  Over 30,000 this year for roughly 800-900 spots.  They accepted 1,600.  That is a 5.33% acceptance rate.

Anyway, here's to our catcher going 3-5, our DH going 3-5, our SS going 3-5, and all the rest of the guys hitting like they have been.  Oh, and getting the GOOD BEEDE!

@cddore78 I help you with some admission stats. The 1st year class is comprised of 1600 students. Yes, there were over 30,000 applicants and the university accepts around 11.5% . Still very selective.

We have the most entertaining bullpen in baseball. That intro with the trophy was really cool.

I was going off what they said last night.  Still, the point is, it wasn't that long ago it was under 20k.

Remind me.  I'm listening to the announcers and the cocky VA players.  Did we lose last night?  Are we down 0-1?  Would you rather be 1-0 or 0-1?  I hope we kick their butts all the way back to Charlottesville.

Beede looks super in the first; three up, three down.

When he starts out well, that's always a good sign (knock on wood).
