2021 Texas Baseball

Recommended Posts

We’re both using a lot of words to say “hey, maybe having a short stop that doesn’t boot everything hit at him and a catcher that can, you know, catch, may lead to more wins this year!” That’s how fucking bad we were defensively. How many times in 2019 did we have like a 6 run lead only for our infield to play hot potato? Just having a DJ and Hamilton in 2019 probably would’ve won us a lot of those wtf games. Faltine and DJ or Powell are worth like 10 wins alone cause they can actually play the position. And I think you’re way overestimated baseball chemistry. Shit I guarantee most of the kids have been playing pick up ball and shit since the season was cancelled back in March

Watching the 05 Wheeless Baylor game. Peoples just fucked up that cunt catcher of theirs. Peoples was ahead of his time. I wish every single one of our players in every sport would do that against Baylor. More Peoples, less Deshon Elliots against Baylor, please

So dumbfuck Dr. Beeper got me thinking about our team this year. We finally have some catchers, an ocean of outfielders, solid infielders and what could be an elite pitching staff. @torre got a projected roster or something like that. I can’t believe I’m doing this but @LTtxfan, you got anything?

Not my wheelhouse.    SnakeDiggity has a good projection in post 189 (above).

I will say the expanded roster due to the virus may be a challenge to manage.   May be difficult to get everyone reps/innings and keep morale/chemistry high.  So important.

(Dr Beeper is a sharp guy,  gives me advice on royalty interests)    :)

The last game was Abilene Christian, no?  It was on that Wednesday night before every single sporting event got cancelled the very next morning (including our Big XII Tournament game versus Texas Tech).  I remember that game though because everybody was finally talking about Coronavirus (or least more people than I had ever heard before talking about it despite it hanging heavy over us for several weeks already).  But I got a bad feeling that night that all baseball and basketball would be cancelled within weeks, maybe days.  Instead it was a matter of hours.
