Friggin Famous Jaimes, gets the walk and the save
We were one strike away from winning the third game against FSU. I thought the 2-2 to Winston was a strike. But its baseball and it works itself out in a 50 (?) game season.
I don't think we should see Clay again in an important situation until he proves himself. I would have pulled him after a walk and hit batter and not waited for the second walk. But Hall knows what he is doing and we won the first game keeping the pitcher in longer than I would have.
For me, there is no sugar coating the beginning of the season. We truly sucked and didn't deserve anything. This team has really developed and now deserves our admiration. I just hope that the football team can do that at some point too.
When did Stanton and Grimes get their surgeries?
Stanton 2012, Grimes 2012???? I looked at http://www.ramblinwreck.com/sports/m-basebl/mtt/geot-m-basebl-mtt.html
My point is that when someone sucks for the second appearance and you have 20+ pitchers on the roster you pull him quick. You put him back in after he proves himself. With the sweep on the line with #1/2 team in the country, walking and hitting the first two batters is enough to show that it isn't your day and you should leave.
Clay has talent, just not yesterday. Stuff happens. Are you saying he needs Tommy John surgery? Hope not.
