    First ACC series. No WREK today :bag:

    But ESPN3 is working. King got pulled after 2 and gave up no runs. Hope he is ok. Stanton comes in and gives up a solo HR. 1-1. Fortunately our error didn't hurt given a DP.

    We have gotten a lot of unearned runs this year; but probably won't from Wake who is 9-4 coming into this game.

    Wheels off in the sixth. We're down 6-2 and on our fourth pitcher.

    I checked back in and it's time to check out :sleep:

    My God, it ended up 9-2. Are we gonna be that bad, Nuke? I didn't get to see any of the carnage.

    Domination, obliteration, humiliation and abuse is all you missed. I missed most after the third (fortunately).

    Are we gonna be bad? Our record against mediocre teams would say yes, but we are young. We'll be better next year. :whistle:

    King came out after two, some kind of injury. Hopefully it isn't serious.

    Anybody heard an update on King?

    RE: How bad will we be?
    I agree with Nuke. We won't be great this year by any stretch of the imagination unless something happens. Next year will be huge for us. A year could make a huge difference for the freshman and it will be nice to see Matt Gonzalez with another year of experience. IMO we have a chance to be really good next year

    Making the ACC Tournament will likely also mean an NCAA tourney berth.

    Issue last night was having King come out after 2 innings. I don't ever expect to score many runs, but we need superb pitching, and once your starter is out after 2 innings, and one of the best in the pen (Cruz) was unavailable due to his stint against the Dawgs Tuesday night, our pitching depth got exposed a bit.

    Less upset with the loss than I am concerned about King. IF (and only if) our starters can stay healthy, gooble innings and put up zeros, then we have a chance. Otherwise, we will be lousy.

    King out, Heddinger struggling ..... they showed King in the dug out in the third looking disgusted and throwing the ball into his glove. King had some control issues in the first two - 38 pitches in two innings with only 19 strikes. With our plethora of pitchers, we should be better than we were.

    I'm more pessimistic about the team .273 batting average given the weak pitching we have seen so far. And the errors. with another 2 last night (to Wake's 0). I hope we figure some stuff out by mid-season.

    Not going to happen. Again being young has nothing to do with it. This program has been in steady decline for the last few years. Young team or an experienced team doesn't matter. Same mistakes are being made and the style of ball hasn't changed. Only difference now is Tech doesn't have the big thumpers and you're seeing the results. Danny boy only knows one brand of baseball and that is depend on the three and two run bombs. If he isn't getting that he will not be able to manufacture many runs. Remember a midweek ugay pitcher shut them out. Only going to get worse.

    I'm afraid your right Midland. There's no excuse for some of the things that are happening. But, I do hope it can get better before it gets any worse down the road. Time will tell all.

    It's going to be a long, long, long season :(

    Midweek FRESHMAN UGAg pitcher. Not that I noticed.

    Anyway, Pitts gets chased after two. Heddinger came in and gave up an off the wall hit. We blow 3-1 lead to have it tied up 3-3. That answers the question of Heddinger getting bounced out of the starting rotation. The way he is going, he may not be relieving either.

    Heddinger lasted a whole inning. Only down 3-5 with 1 on and none out in the 4th. Unfortunately Isaacs is the one getting put in for what may be a losing cause since we don't have much power. But you have to try. Time for something else!!

    Geez. A difficult football campaign, another lackluster hoops season, and it looks like baseball will offer no relief. What do we do, go watch the golf team?

    Alright, back for more. Just turned on and it's 0-0 in the second. This CBS Sports is pretty good.

    ****, WF just hit a HR. Grimes starting, maybe he'll make it past the third. Hall has been very quick to change pitchers all year, a change in tactics to go along with 65% of our players being pitchers. 0-1. The WF hitters are swinging easy - for good reason.

    Time to settle in now and finish washing windows later. GT up 5-1 to bottom 7th. I came back and WF had bases loaded and Ryan comes in and strikes out 2 with 7 or 8 pitches.

    Maybe we can get an ACC win!

    any update regarding King? Heard he may have aggravated an old should injury.

    Probably won't hear about King till Weds or Thurs. I check Beesball http://beesball.com/ for a lot of stuff like this, but nothing there.
