re: Official 2019 Ole Miss Baseball Thread: 15-7 (2-2) - L 2-1 - NEXT UP: @Missouri
To be fair to Bianco, our starting pitching is usually the strong point of the team every year. I can look back across the last decade and point to teams that were one or two good hitters away from being a final 4 Omaha team.

ETA: not making excuses for this year though.. in WAOM fashion, the best hitting team we’ve ever had can’t win because pitching sucks

I don't understand why Graham is hitting 2nd today. The dude has too small of a sample size to be hitting in an important spot like 2nd. Just grounded into a double play with bases loaded to end the inning.

I’ve been saying all season let’s wait and give it time. Well my hope is fading that we even make the tourney. I’ll keep watching and keep being heartbroken by them. Just don’t see it coming together this year. Hope I’m wrong.

ECU and UL show us we don’t have the pitching depth to hang with the top tier SEC teams this year unless our starting pitching can throw complete games. Our hitters having to score every inning is going to cause them to try and do too much.

Fair enough. I have to guard against going off the deep end. Baseball feels like such a long season and as long as you get into the post-season, it's all about getting hot at the right time. What we do on a two-day trip to Louisville in March ultimately is not going to impact the overall season very much. Sucks today, though.

While this is partly true... this last week has been a good measuring stick as to where we are... and it's not as good as all had hoped for preseason

Also true. No doubt we are not clicking on all cylinders just yet. Or maybe we only have a 4-cylinder.

I’m not even sure we could hire McDonnell if this is the year that does Bianco in. Just makes me even more pissed off that our team with multiple quality starters couldn’t get out of our own fricking regional last year when we really might’ve had enough to do the damn thing

Between walks and hit batters we've got 14 free passes but only 5 runs because of the lack of hit production.

I still think we will be okay and find a way to finish 15-15 in SEC play. We just don't have the pitching depth right now to win a regional if we screw up one of the first 2 games. Hopefully some of our freshmen grow up pretty soon and become serviceable. Nikhazy is one that is starting to do that.

Considering I have zero faith in Fowler or Roth, Nikhazy has been a godsend. Too bad our offense hasn’t really been there behind him yet

I’m not convinced Olenek isn’t one of our better relievers

Pitching must improve. It’s as simple as that.

8 runs not enough to win a midweek game

This is going to be tough

Don't want to see Roth start another game. He doesn't know how to close out atbats. Keep Nikhazy as our 4th started and if he starts to impress more then move him into the weekend rotation. Amazing if we have any sort of decent pitching today we probably win. Wasn't even that impressed with our hitting even though we scored 8. Dillard picked a bad stretch to go cold right before the start of conference play too.

Well, it was against what is probably the ACC's best team on the road. But I feel your pain.

It sucks. But this wasn’t a normal “midweek” team.

Louisville’s backup pitchers vs ours. Pretty even assessment. We’ve lost all 3 games we played against real competition both home and away.

Im usually pretty pessimistic, but tbh im not too worried about our team just yet. Now, if we start of 2-4 in SEC play then ill be worried, but I think we are going to be ok. Weekend starters plus Nikhazy have looked good. Green and Miller are solid bullpen options. We lost two midweek games to a top 10 ACC team on the road where one game went to extra innings and the other one we just started a guy who was not ready to go after an injury.
