I'll tell you what. If they try that stuff against Wynkoop tommorrow they're going to get picked off 4 times at least.

If we had played that type of game against UF at the CWS, we'd have gone home losers. What the hell is your standard anyway.

We won. Beede went 8+ innings and we won. There isn't any other way to win this kind of game. We walk a few lead off guys? Well, we let fewer get on than usual. Some throws pulled Martin off the bag? Well, it wasn't like they were routine throws. If we played like we did against the 2011 UF team we would have lost? Well, good thing no team is as good as that 2011 UF team this year. I'd hate to have to face Hudson Randall and Mike Zunino with what we have.

The plays that pulled martin off the bag were not routine plays. An arrant throw here and there happens, its baseball, it happens in the MLB everyday. Leaving the bases loaded, you do realize that the Vandy starter is going to be a top 25 pick in the draft this coming year correct? Compared to other games this season, SC did a pretty decent job scoring runners against a pitching staff that teams are batting like .180 against.

And since you wanna compare games....South Carolina played Florida in game one of the CWS in 2011, the Gamecocks had one error, and six walks, one more error, and three walks more than the team did tonight. So let me ask you...WTF is YOUR standard?!

Compare your own box scores...Then sit down and watch tomorrow's game silently:

Definitely top 25. Probably more like top 5. And give the man a break. He's obviously old.

I am sorry to hear that, sadly that "luck stuff" is when opportunity meets preperation and its a trademark of gamecock baseball

Haha based off talent, we werent as good as that uf team in 11' but we still won. Thing is though regardless of what other teams have talent wise our baseball team has always and will always fight, we love being the underdog, we thrive in that position.

What we all should take away from this game is that we have to be happy with our team's ability to keep fighting and make a late game comeback against a good team and one of college baseball's best pitchers. (even though the game winning run came off their closer).

Major point is: Being down late does not deter our team.

We have done chit like that all year long... It's the only issue I have with Holbrook....he is too aggressive at the plate for me in those type of situations.

You can debate the first pitch with every baseball manager of all time and you won't get a consensus. It's also the highest probability that it is the best pitch you see in an AB. Should the braves tell freeman to take a pitch?

No, but when a pitcher just walks someone on 4 pitches, and the next guy swings at the first pitch... I have issue with that approach...

Hey, I'm not one of these guys that wants Holbrook gone... I think he is doing a great job... Just wish he had his hitters a little more patient up there in certain situations.

The UGA game on Friday, where the guy threw 87 pitches in a complete game performance...when UGA has a terrible bullpen... IMO... That was not smart baseball.

As for the Freddie Freeman reference... Other than Max or GG, I would not give any of the guys a green light after a 4 pitch walk. I've seen Tanner hack away at the first pitch all year long... Which with his speed, baffles my mind.

SHHHH with the sweep talk. We've won the first game before this season and went on to lose the series. Vandy can definitely do it. Just keep working and try to take tonight, then go from there. Their pitcher tonight is supposedly even better.
