Great job by Whaley of working out of a bases loaded 1 out jam by not allowing a run to cross

Still 1-0

He turned on Shannon so fast after he got fired it made his head spin to a completely different hosting destination permanently, so I thought it was the epitome of weak, but yeah, he certainly had a panache all his own that probably can't ever be totally duplicated dj.

So who committed the errors to cost them the chance at the sweep? Was it the SS? I bet it was the SS.

SOUP

OGV...no it was DeVoss, who is playing 2nd base (in place of earlyseason starter Michael Broad) but used to play CF.

The Roadrunner had 2 errors today.

The Good, the Bad and the U-gly is how I chalk up Miami, F-L-A Hurricane baseball this season.

The Good. Morris has a decent club to compete with most Top 15 teams. But just aren't quite good enough to steal a few games, here and there. Today's game was a WINNABLE game for Miami. But that's neither here or there now.

The Bad. Oh how those errors come back to haunt a diamond nine, Eh. From perusing the boxscores and game stories this season, that's been the absolute difference in Miami winning at least FIVE more games in 2011.

Now, for the U-gly. Morris' club won't make the College World Series this season, again. Say it ain't so.

Je'ccuse of catching the NEGATIVE virUS OF U-know-who. oUch! But I'm only being a balanced-minded realist.

Cane horde. If any particular club ain't corrected mental lapses and or fielding errors this late in the season, then it's a safe bet to say said team won't reach Omaha this season.

Still, reaching in the bloody vast cold dark of the void, I wouldn't mind watching Miami reach the Super Regionals. Games on ESPN, ESPN-2 or espnU anyone.

By the way, the powers that be overseeing the A.C.C. need to get a few more games on FOXSPORTS. Chit, the A.C.C. is the best conference in the country, arguably speaking.

Sebastian

Zeke committed 2 errors that led to both of the unearned runs

Fieger had the other error but it didnt cost a run

Fieger-sp. at the Hot Corner with one and DeVoss with two COSTLY turnovers at 2nd.

Those errors were basically the difference in the game.

The way the kid for Virginia was pitching today, Miami had to have no more than one error.

Tomorrow the Hurricanes go for the series win. 2 bad it's not on telly, eh.

Sebastian

The fielding did let the `Canes down today but Wilson(Cavs starting pitcher)kept the hitters off balance and reaching for pitches all day long

He pitched a damn good game and stayed ahead of the hitters all day long

What I did question just a bit was with the slick infield grass, why we didnt see more bunt attempts early in the game to try and rattle Wilson and get him off his game

But hey the games over and the `Canes still have a chance to take the series before heading back to C.G. to finish out the regular season

Sebastian

Marlins win 1-0

So lets break it down

`Canes will get to Omaha

Rays v Marlins in the World Series

I agree 100%.

Plus Raycom is the official ACC Network but do they show ANY baseball games at all?

OK, OK who spilled the Kool-Aid up in here again?

Oy vey...

Seb,

If I have one real issue w/ Morris, it's the lack of aggressive use of this team's speed. Bunting and stolen bases are the best counter to a team (like this one) that swings and misses so often. The pitching staff does it's job nearly every weekend-how many games have we lost by 1 or 2 runs?

The good news is that all 4 starting pitchers return next year, and the lack of performance of some key juniors (like Harold) may lead to a real contender next season. But I must confess I'm a little tired of waiting for next year.

On the other hand, a win tomorrow and a sweep of the Dukies, and who knows how far this team could go? I just see no reason for a fan to be negative. We have no control of anything, and our opinions are basically meaningless. The only reason I follow these teams is to enjoy the sports.

I'm an alumnus of a school that has celebrated 9 national championships in my 2 favorite sports, since I started college in 1981. Can I really complain?

SOUP

UM baseball trivia: How many current Hurricanes are from Miami Killian HS?

There IT is right there!

Sebastian

With the slippery condition the infield grass was in I thought for sure the `Canes would try and lay down a few bunts to try to get on base and then let the speed take over from there

I was noticing that Wilson was falling off to the 1st base side of the mound and the 3rd baseman wasnt really playing that close in

They fought until the very end but came up short

Now let hope EJ comes out and has a big showing for the pitching staff tommorrow

EJ is 4-1 with a 2.40 ERA in ACC play this year

But I must confess I'm a little tired of waiting for next year.

This is what I've been saying for a while now .. but I'm considered a pessimist by a select few b/c of it due to the fact that I expand on my tired of waiting each .. year .. again


Can't really blame Roadrunner for the boots today at 2B - kid probably hasn't played infield since he was a SS at Astronaut HS a couple of years ago .. and then to throw him out there like that in a crucial series

Just like in '09 when Ryan Jackson and #3 also said that they need to play more small ball and "run rabbit run" - well, where is it?

Small ball = fundamentals at their finest ... that's why you'd see the Asian countries do well during the World Baseball Classic - b/c they just hammer the hell out of the fundamentals

Six

86 - either 4 or 5 are

I know both Robinsons are (Sam, Zach) .. Daniel Miranda is .. Rudman and Abrams are

I dunno who else

Six

Bolts up already on the Bruins, 2-0

Sebastian

I didnt see the Killian ?

I think its 6

Miranda,Santos,Sam&Zach Robinson,Rudman and Abrams

SOUP

Six is correct.

I mean Sebas is correct, there are SIX UM players from Miami Killian HS on the current roster.

GO CANES, GO COUGARS!!!

SOUP

BOLTS 3, BRUINS 1

After one period. Surprised?

Sebastian

I admit I know ZERO about hockey so I wouldnt know a surprising score from a what is expected score

orange 'n green in the vein

Not surprised at all, you knew one of the teams would come out slow from the layoff at least.

Sebastian

GT beat NC today so that drops the `Canes 1 1/2 behind GT for 2nd but still a 1/2 game ahead of NC for 3rd in the Coastal Division

Big big game for the `Canes tommorrow

SOUP

Bolts win 5-2 to take game 1 in Boston.

Bruins SUCK!
