2023 War Tigers
« on: February 02, 2023, 05:46:14 PM »
The season cranks up in just over two weeks, with a 3 game home series against the Indiana Hoosiers.  The pre-conference schedule includes a trip out to L.A. for a 3 game set against USC.  They finish the pre-conference with Georgia Tech. 30 conference games, starting with the Razor Pigs.  No games this year against Tennessee, Kentucky or Vanderbilt.

It looks like we have a lot of experience returning in the field, and a good bit in the bullpen.  I don't recall enough about our starters last year to know what we have coming back.

Despite a good record and a nice run in the tourney last year, nobody thinks very much of us.  The preseason AP Poll has us at #37.  LSU and Florida hold the two top spots, with A&M, Tennessee, Arkansas and Vanderbilt all in the top 10.  Looks like the SEC will be stacked again.

My doctor told me I needed to stop masturbating.  I asked him why, and he said, "because I'm trying to examine you."

Tigers took 2 of 3 from Indiana.  8-4 and 6-1 in the first two games, with great all around pitching. Rough outing for the starter and first reliever in the 3rd game, as the Hoosiers smoked us 11-2.

Tonight, they travel to play North Alabama (1-2), then it's out to L.A. for a 3 game series with USC. (3-0)

Tigers go to 3-1 with a 13-1 win over UNA.  Major storm brings major change.  USC is coming to Auburn because of a YUGE storm hitting the left coast.  Both coaches and admins really wanted to play, so they scrambled to cancel flights and get new ones booked.  Would love to see a game, but don’t know if the schedule will allow.

I've got my balls back.  Problem is, I'm old now and they're pretty much useless.  Just kind of hang there.

Three game sweep of Lipscomb this weekend, puts the Tigers at 9-1-1.  6 more tune ups before they enter conference play on the road against Arky.

Wins this week over UAB (4-1)

Bill Clark reportedly declined interest in the Auburn job that isn't open during the 7th inning while in attendance.

He would have accepted, but his back is still healing.

Did I tell you about the time Bill Clark won the World Series with a grand slam on two broken legs?  It only took him 18 minutes to round the bases.

After dropping 2 out of 3 this past weekend to SE Louisiana, the Tigers stood at 12-3-1.  I turned to the game last night against Georgia Tech, and they were already down 7-0 in like the 3rd inning. 

Came back and won with a walk off single in the bottom of the 12th, to take a 12-11 win.  They had 20 hits last night. Gave up 22, but who's counting.  13-3-1.

Headed to Arkansas for 3 this weekend. Shit's about to get real.

Haven't updated in a while.  The Dudes went out to Fayettenam, and got a beat down, dropping all 3 games.  A midweek win against Samford, then took the first two from Fuck Georgia.  Had a tight game going late in the third game until FUGA scored....cough, cough.....16 runs in one inning to take a 24-7 win.  Tiggers scored about that many and smoked UNA last night. 

They sit at 17-7-1 (2-4).  It don't be gettin' any easier from here, as they travel to Gainesville, to face #2 Florida this weekend.

I got a feeling this will be another average year for the baseballs...
I'm not sure if we are just not getting the recruits, or if we may have hit our ceiling.

I think the hitting has been pretty solid.  They've got Ike Irish hitting something like .426.  Bryson Ware is hitting .396 with 14 HR and 38 RBI.  Several more hitting over .300.  The pitching is where it goes south.  10 guys with ERA's over 6.00

Yep, our guys are out there throwing batting practice.  Too Butch needs to let them know that the goal is for the other team to miss the ball swinging.
