CWS
Well Game 4 is underway and there hasn't been a single CWS post thus far. Guess others are like me in that the interest just isn't there these days.

Been watching a fascinating U.S. Open, but now pulling for TCU to win one for Texas.

I hope TCU loses to set up an elimination match up between the Frogs and Aggies for the 3rd year in a row, this time in Omaha.

Rooting for CSF to win it but they'll have to come out of the loser's bracket.

Otherwise LSU or OSU, I guess.

Don't want A&M, TCU, or Louisville... Indifferent to FSU and Florida.

Through 7 innings, FL is up 3-0. TCU has 2 hits.

You got your wish.

It seems pretty obvious to me that the best two teams are in the same bracket (Oregon State and LSU). But I suppose it's still early and anything can happen. Both Oregon State and LSU might be hurting a bit - relatively speaking - in the starting pitcher department. Poche relieved for LSU yesterday which I guess means they go to Walker in the winner's bracket game against Oregon State?

Walker has arguably been LSU's best pitcher over the last month of the season. I certainly was impressed with him.

LSU was gifted yesterday's game by FSU, with 3 of their 5 runs unearned. FSU also ran themselves out of a couple innings. Put simply, LSU lucked out big time yesterday.

That was very bold of Mainieri to bring in Poche, but he knows how grim are your prospects in the losers' bracket.

You might call the runs gifted but I don't agree. The vets Duplantis and Freemen with their savvy and speed manufactured those runs. Make them make the plays. That's what aggression of the old ball coach. That approach was rewarded.

I agree that Eric Walker is throwing as well as anybody for LSU. No opponent wants to see Zack Hess approach the 8th or 9th. Make way for the Sandman!
