MD @ West Virginia- Fire Everyone

One was on O' Brien. Just pointed it out because like the others' date=' it does count against the rushing total....but still, -13 yards is downright embarrassing. The first series was bad coaching/preparation, plain and simple.[/quote']

Jeff Barker's blog said that the coaches were trying to see if they could go in there and do their normal counts without having to use a silent count, and that led to the issues on the first drive.

Which, when you are taking an inexperienced quarterback and inexperienced offensive linemen into an extremely loud and hostile environment, makes perfect sense...

All-in-all' date=' like I said, the final score doesn't really tell the story. I bet if you asked someone who follows WV football they would tell you it was not their greatest performance.....the scoring margin should have been much greater. If they play like that at LSU next weekend I bet they lose.[/quote']

While I will agree that we actually have the potential to put up a lot of points, this team just continues to dissapoint. With Devine, Sanders nad Austin they have a lot of dynamic and shifty playmakers. The problem is that our OL is average on the best day. LSU's D Line will kill us.

I was at the game yesterday, and while they looked great in the 1st half, they took their foot off the gas in the second half and let Md inch their way back. WVU's coaching staff never puts together two great halfs. Never.

It could be worse...Maryland's never puts together even one decent half.

    • It’s probably fairly inevitable that Grayson will need TJ at some point in his career. Velo increases the risk. However, it’s very common for all pitchers, regardless of velo. The biggest thing Grayson has going for him is that he’s made it to age 24 without a shoulder or elbow injury (at least that I can recall), which already separates him from many others in the high velo club. The best predictor of future injuries is past injuries, and while he did have that lat issue that knocked him out for a fair bit his record is pretty clean in that respect.  Also, it’s more the conventional baseball wisdom than something I’m aware of being supported in stats, but Grayson has a prototypical pitcher’s frame and in theory that could help his durability. It doesn’t seem like he generates his velo from a max effort delivery.
    • It was a fastball.   If you’re bailing out on a fastball from a LHP with a 3/4 delivery like that I think there’s a problem but if you think it’s perfectly fine you’re entitled to your opinion.
    • It’s been a few years, but I seem to recall there was some talk about his playing 2B when Duquette was still here. Might have been some kind of instructional league chatter or something. It certainly cannot hurt. 
    • I'm not sure that I understand all of your post. In particular the mentioning of Elias and Adley in comparison to Belichick and Brady. That is an apples to strawberries comparison at best. Both are fruit and red and round, otherwise unalike. Brady's role as QB and BB's role as head coach and GM is far different and much more directly central to success than Elias GM and certainly Adley as a catcher. However, when speaking about Hal Steinbrenner being an impediment to Elias remaining as GM of the Orioles long term, I don't see it. NY is a totally different market than here. You are NEVER going to be given 4 years for a total tear down and all the future building moves for the sake of the present won't fly in NY. Yes, I am sure than other owners like Steinbrenner envy what the O's have amassed. It's why they changed the draft rules. However, some owners know that the path that Elias used to get the Orioles to where they are is not viable in their markets as they know how alienating it would be to their fanbase. This is to say, that if Elias wants to be here, Rubenstein has the pockets that are plenty deep enough to make that happen. It's probably going to be a similar contract to what the Mets are paying Stearns and the Dodgers are paying Friedman.
    • If he can't locate the breaking stuff and throw the fastball with a good location he gets destroyed. I keep hearing how good his stuff is, but his pitch values are not good on anything but his offspeed pitch. His fastball had negative run value last year and it does again this year. Barrel and hard hit % are both up this year too. I guess he'll live or die by the changeup if it's working or not. Whiff rate and K% are good not great according to statcast.
    • What about Means and Kremer?
    • If the Sacramento A's need a second baseman I am fine with this.
