LSU RF Dylan Crews Named SEC Freshman of the Week
quote:

LSU rightfielder Dylan Crews was named Tuesday as the SEC Freshman of the Week by the league office. 

Crews, a product of Longwood, Fla., enjoyed an outstanding collegiate debut, helping to lead LSU to two wins in the Tigers' first three games. 

Crews hit .583 (7-for-12) over the weekend with two homers, three RBI and two runs scored. He also walked four times and recorded an on-base percentage of .688.

In LSU's 16-7 win over Louisiana Tech on Monday night, Crews was 3-for-4 with a homer, two RBI, two walks and one run. With LSU trailing 4-0 in the bottom of the third inning, his solo homer awakened the Tigers' offense and sparked a comeback that resulted in a nine-run victory.

It happens when the manager puts in a sub par pitcher and he walks in runs.

Why does LSU always have an excuse? Maybe y’all just suck?

I did a quick internet search for Crews' won/loss record, but I couldn't find anything. Got a link to that?

Well you win as a team and lose as team. Individual awards are meaningless.

re: LSU RF Dylan Crews Named SEC Freshman of the Week
Why did Crews decide to go to college? #13 overall player, pretty universal 1st round pick. Just decide he wanted to do college for 3 years?

I think that and because of that he had a large number that it would have taken to get him to skip LSU.

What’s your excuse for losing a national championship on a coach pitch fielding play?

That’s what we call an opt-in.

Basically one of those guys who wanted to play college ball. We're lucky to have him

quote:

It was an opportunity Crews believed too good to pass up. He withdrew his name from coronavirus-shortened MLB draft to attend LSU. He committed to the Tigers three years ago, signed last November and stayed true to his word.

“My ultimate dream was to go to LSU, be an icon, be a dude there,” Crews said. “I want to get drafted out of college in 2023. I wanted to play for (LSU) coach (Paul) Mainieri because the coaching staff there was all that I wanted. Throughout this whole process I wanted to go to LSU. It’s something I always wanted to do.

“I wanted to develop my game, there’s no shortcuts in baseball. There wasn’t a better opportunity I could have than LSU. I know by going there, I’ll mature as a player, I’m going to be a better outfielder, be a better hitter and experience going to Omaha and hopefully win a national championship. I want to be the best player that I can when I re-enter the draft in 2023.”

“I’m going to give it all that I’ve got from the first inning until the last inning,” Crews said of his approach at LSU. “I’m never going to take a play off. I’m also going to be a really good person off the field, too. I’m going to be very welcoming. Hopefully I can make my name there.”


quote:

Just over a week before the draft Crews met with his parents and withdrew his name. He was bound for LSU.

“I thought about it every day and what I wanted to do whether it was going to college or the draft,” Crews said. “I’d always go back to college. I didn’t want to miss out on this opportunity. I wanted to experience this. It’s years that you can’t take back. It’s a special place.

“Throughout the recruiting process. I was always open. I never had a favorite school and visited many schools. As soon as I set foot on LSU’s campus, you could just feel it. The fans there are unbelievable. They’re crazy. I love them. They’re very welcoming. And I won’t go hungry because the food there was amazing.”


quote:

Crews recalled with great delight the phone call he made to Mainieri once he pulled his name out of the draft.

“He was very excited, the whole coaching staff was,” Crews said of Mainieri. “As soon as I heard LSU was interested, it was definitely an eye-opener for me. LSU was always on my mind and the best decision I made. I’ll be in the same position in 2023 as a lot of these guys that were drafted this year. The competition in the SEC is the same as rookie ball or single or double-A ball. I’m very excited to play in the SEC and compete against these great players and go to war with my boys.”

Because we had a major brain fart. I have no problem admitting it. Should’ve been an easy catch.
Unlike most LSU fans on here, they can’t admit to anything. Always on the coach and not the players.

Yeah, not sure you've spent much time on the rant. The rant throws Paul under the bus plenty, but plenty of people have no problem trashing players all the time as well. Our baseball fans are certainly psychotic, but them having the ability to blame players is not exactly a character trait they lack either.

Truer words may never have been spoken. It's almost unreadable at times on Tiger Rant.
