Got it now. Looks like OSU has found those bats again. Just don't pull a Wazzu again.

Yeah...I got it. NC State and Rice...good game, but ESPNU AND ESPN2? I really, really, really hate ESPN. There ARE other games that people care about besides this 1 game

Man, Oregon St. brought the bats tonight. Every inning they are threatening.

That was the key to yesterday's game. KSU's pitching was a lot better than expected.

Plus, OSU's bullpen was a lot worse than expected.

Here's that expected runs table I was mentioning to...Opihi? the other day.

So with bases loaded and no outs, the chance of scoring at least one run is 90%. And on average you will score 2.69 runs. K-State walks in a run, so I guess we still have another 90% chance of scoring.

Parker, again pronouncing coup de grace as coup de gras (the strike of fat).

I can't remember the last time I saw a coach change 6 players at once.

You've got to have some kind of agenda now. There's no way you believe that a pitching coach has free reign on all of this stuff.

Are you high?

Yeskie is a great coach.

Yes. I have an agenda. And that is for Casey to fire Yeskie. Apparently you have not watched/listened or read much about Oregon State baseball over the last 4 years. Last year was the worst in recent history on the mound and, while the head coach is ultimately responsible for the team, you have to be able to rely on your pitching coach for making the correct moves, send in the right relievers and generally have a positive influence on the team. Last year it was like Casey let Yeskie do whatever, whenever he wanted. Ask some of the others on here if I lie. I did notice this year Casey had more input into the pitching, and it has made a difference. But do you think Coach Casey on Friday said. "Hey Nate. Matt's ahead on the count, 0-1. Go to the mound and have a talk about how he's doing." Next thing you know, Boyd's rhythm is completely off and in comes relievers. Then what appeared to be an unnecessary trip again last night. Yeah. I have an agenda. Fire Nate. Hire Buck.

You're showing your inexperience with all of this. Pitching coaches don't make decisions. Pitching coaches teach pitchers how to pitch, watch for signs of bad mechanics or fatigue, call pitches, etc. Pitching coaches don't make decisions. And if you really think that's what is going on, then your beef is with a guy who is pulling a head coach paycheck and putting some of the game's biggest decisions on someone else. I really doubt that is what is happening.

It's like being mad because you think an assistant coach is calling too many bunts from the 3rd base coaches box. If you really believe he is calling those, then I have a bridge to sell you, but more importantly you would be giving a pass to the guy who should be making the decision to begin with.

Bottom line, instead of asking for the pitching coach to be fired, you should be demanding that the head coach act like a head coach and make the pitching moves himself.

i think this year, Casey has done a better job of keeping Yeskie in check... just look at how many times FB has called for Yeskies head on a stake this season? only 4 or 5 times as opposed to about 5 times a game last year. now maybe that is a symptom of just how strong our starters have been this year, and UW WSU and Saturday notwithstanding our pen has been pretty solid too.

Well, I appreciate you sharing. Too bad you are unfamiliar with the Oregon State program. So if a pitcher is doing something wrong or is fatigued, etc., the pitching coach goes to the head coach for everything involved in a game that requires a decision? Maybe if you were the head coach, you might do things like you have stated, but since you aren't......well, I don't know what you do for a living, but you might want to keep your day job.
