    That’s right I remember us discussing that a while back. My wife grew up in Hobbs, NM... so we’ve got similar taste.

    Saturday will be a great chance for y’all to win. Noland is still a pup and has struggled at times as our #2 guy. Hoping the home crowd gets him comfortable. Campbell has been dominant as our Friday night guy, and our Sunday starter has been great lately too.

    My wife is from Clovis and I’m happy to never have to go back there again. New Mexico on the whole is awesome though.

    Been talking with our athletic department and my dad is going to throw the first pitch out for our series opener against SC the last weekend of the year. Can’t wait to surprise him with that news.

    I think friday night will be the big night for us. We hit righties fine, its the junk ballers and literally any lefty that has killed this lineup. Campbell vs. Etheridge will be awesome. Etheridge has maybe the lowest effort/high velocity delivery you will ever see. It looks like he's trying to throw a knuckleball and it crosses the plate at 93mph. I think it throws hitters off and he's been incredible this year. Our saturday starter Doug Nikhazy is a true freshman lefty that has been surprisingly awesome to start his career. He was outstanding against Louisville, East Carolina and Missouri (took a no hitter into the 7th) so maybe he's legit. Our sunday starter Gunnar Hoglund was a 1st round pick and has all the tools but he's been up and down like most freshman pitchers. He dominated Alabama and struggled to get into the 4th against Missouri. You kind of wait to see which Hoglund shows up sunday.

    If I was ya'll i'd find some lefty reliever who throws mid 80s and start him saturday. It will kill us. We are a power lefty heavy lineup and it negates the advantage. Our lineup before the season was poised to be the best lineup Bianco has ever had. 7 of the 9 were returning starters from an offense that destroyed the ball last year. Chase Cockrell the preseason SEC 2nd team DH (who hit .317 and 9 home runs last year) is hitting .236 with 0 home runs, Kessinger has been gimpy and the best hitter in the fall Tim Elko started the season 0-12. Its an offense that can score 3 or 4 runs in an inning then go silent for a long time. They're just hot and cold. If Thomas Dillard gets a ball down and in it will not stay in the park. Watching him hit home runs is incredible. They remind me Pedro Alvarez, Kent Matthes, Brent Rooker type moon shots.

    The front of our bullpen is really good but if you can get into the back end guys we fall apart. If both Etheridge or Nikhazy don't go at least 5 or 6 innings we are fucked. We have 3 really great bullpen arms then you start getting into absolute garbage arms. In a perfect scenario for us Etheridge and Nikhazy get into the 7th or 8th and Hoglund goes at least 5 on sunday. If that doesn't happen it doesn't matter if we string hits together, we can't win the series. And If Etheridge gets run in the 4th or 5th inning friday night we are getting swept. I'll give us one this weekend since I think Etheridge or Nikhazy will give us a chance both of those days but I'd put more money on us getting swept than winning the series.

    We barely have any lefties on the entire roster. Wicklander has been our mid week starter and has been good. Outside of that it’s Cronin who’s our badass closer, and that’s it.

    Our bullpen is pretty loaded

    If it is a righty heavy bullpen its a wash against this lineup. We hit righties pretty well especially if they pitch into the 90s. Its lefties and junkballers that just shut us down.

    I expect Wicklander to go 8IP 9K/1BB against us saturday. We will have to win either the friday night or sunday games to salvage the series.

    Noland throws a lot of junk balls so maybe that’ll set him straight

    Wicklander threw on Tuesday against Missouri St but only 2 innings (5 K’s and 26 pitches) to start that one out, so I’m assuming DVH was keeping him fresh for the weekend series.

    Y’all aren’t beating us on Friday night.

    Our two friday night games in SEC play have been a 1-0 win and a 2-1 loss (Etheridge in those starts combined was 11.2IP, 1ER, 14K, 6BB). You go from him to Austin Miller (1.14 ERA, 0.86 WHIP, .181 BAA, 27K/5BB) and then Parker Caracci the closer for team USA this summer. We'll have every bit a shot at friday night if we can string together a few hits.

    Arkansas offense is a little different than Mizzou’s and Bama’s.

    We haven’t lost a Friday night game in Baum since 2017

    God mazey plays way too much small ball. Pitcher can’t throw a strike. Walks the leadoff batter. Then we bunt and they get the lead runner at second. Next batter gets a base hit. Just give them a free out. Ridiculous
