re: Hellmers?! - Metaloctopus on 4/18/21 at 9:53 am
I guess he was waiting for LSU to take the lead, and then he'd put him in. I'm pretty sure I've heard him say something very similar to that, in the past, when questioned about why he started one pitcher over another. It's anybody's guess. I can't say I would have been excited about Hellmers, eit...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
