I wasn't feeling well last night, so I went to bed when the score was 1-0 TTU. :(

What a surprise to wake up and see we won 2-1. :Corn2:


It looks like Colby Gomes was throwing the heat in closing. :Mfclap: Way to go Colby. :Rockon:

Curious what we are going to do with Luensmann. Sounds like he may not have been stretching out for starting like they want.

I agree. Chad had a rough outing against OSU and then had a solid game last night. I want to keep seeing the Chad of last night.

I hadn't heard that. Do you mean as in, 'before game stretching', or as in, 'a full stretch in his pitch'? Thanks SSO

Stretching out isn’t actual stretching as I’m sure he’s doing everything he needs from there, it’s more about increasing his pitch count each weekend the first month and keeping the velocity up. For simplicity, just say he had a 50 max pitch limit first weekend, then 75, now 100. But if at pitch 50 his velocity is dropping form 90 to 85 mph, that’s not good for a starter if you are needing 100 pitches (especially your Friday starter to not get in the bullpen early).

Speculating on my part, but maybe it wasn’t going great just yet.

I see. I thought you might mean something else entirely but wasn't sure what. That makes sense. Thanks SSO. :)

I don't see Luensman being a starter. He is what I call effectively wild. He will always have high pitch counts and walks but is usually able to get out of them. However he'd be hard pressed to go deep into games due to high pitch counts.
