    Dude we didnt take two of three.

    Kevin Kinder , dont you remember what my question was last week (check my statements). It was ; I understand that you cannot compromise an excellent fielding shortstop but the second baseman HAS GOT TO HIT. We must have someone who can play second and rise above the Mendoza line in n offence .

    • Boy did that line up today look like Mazey has been reading my comments.
    • Also Kevin Kinder , maybe our ace is known. 15 strikeouts in 6 innings against what they say is the biggest, baddest Big 12 hitting attack is very impressive.

    Blassie, defnitely remember those points. Nicely done!

    Putting Leonard at 3B and moving JJ to 2B probably gives WVU its best hitting lineup. Will that become permanent? Dayne looks ok at 3B – he played there in HS and was still taking infield when he had the opportunity this year. I do think that makes WVU a little, just a little, weaker overall on infield defense, but being able to get Holbrook, Leonard and Blasick in the lineup together probably offsets that.

    WVU had done that once before this weekend – will be interesting to see if it continues. Was wondering if Kahn or Abernathy would get a shot at 2B, but probably need to keep the latter available for a situational pitching matchup or a PH spot.

    Had heard that there was some consideration to move Watters out of the rotation after he struggled the last couple of starts, but clearly he had a great outing against UT. It’s all about command for him – he has the velo and movement to stifle a lot of hitters, but when he’s not having his best day he can lose the ball over the plate. If he can be on the beam like he was vs. UT, then WVU has two very good starters.

    Now have to think about Sunday – with Bravo getting hit on the arm and his hand bandaged up, not sure what his status will be for this weekend.

    I sat behind the Texas dugout.  Man, did their guys look big.  And their batting statistics are impressive.   Our guys deserve kudos for not hanging their heads and giving up after falling behind 3-0 and 5-3.  Our relief pitchers looked great, which was encouraging.  Pitt is playing pretty well, so another tough game on Tuesday.  Need a W.
