Your IQ is so much greater than the rest of us ... a given. But forgive me and help me understand why a DII transfer should get less credit for pitching effectively against Arizona?

Hmm. Maybe the coach likes to recruit and further develop power hitters?

No. It is a phonebooth. Swap any number of teams playing 40 games at hillenbrand and they would have more HRS than the Cats

More HRs than the Cats? Wow, dude. As many HRs as the hitters Candrea recruits and develops? Think so? Look at Meyers in his ASU days. He had some big long ball hitters. That kind of stuff doesn't go far with your mindset. 

Some of this argument's factors are subjective, and some are confounding. But when considering the physical variables at various fields (e.g. Rockies vs. Padres or Rockies vs. BoSox et al.), they don't appear to contribute much to the distance a ball is batted.

first, coors field absolutely DOES contribute to the distance a ball is hit...
And... There are howitzer line-out singles at fenway that are HRS at any other park... and fence scraping HRS at the Fens that are can o corn at any other park

The altitude at which a ball park stands... 
absolutely is a key factor in regard to the distance a batted ball flies. 
This is well know. It is not some new piece of information.

I said they do not contribute much and I should have been more concise and included all else constant. I did not say altitude does not make a difference. A couple professors think 5 percent farther for a baseball in Denver than San Diego or Boston. Check out this site http://baseball.physics.illinois.edu/Denver.html.

Yup, both Arizona pitchers got pounded by OSU. Not pretty.

The other pitcher gets the chance to redeem herself.

Cut the frosh pitcher some slack.

Which Pac-12 team did not play cupcakes?

Did not play ALL cupcakes? Or did not play a COUPLE cupcakes?

Seems like the Huskies had the easiest opening weekend in the PAC12 IMO.

You can feel free to edit out the first two words and the final four words and be good.

Washington opponents at Peoria (2017 RPI): 137, 145, 145, 179, 224 (830/5=166 average)

Oregon is hosting an event with no one of any top-50 ilk willing/able to participate in in March. Even the low-end competition in that weekend owns a 2017 RPI that is better (145 to 166... 12.6 percent better)

If McQuillin doesn't pull the lead out, none of it matters.

My Troy Trojans are heading out to play Arizona this weekend.  I hope the game will be streaming. They have not pitched our almighty freshman pitcher yet, so she must still be coming off of injury.  I would love to get some feedback on how the team looks in person, if any of yall AZ fans are attending live.  Keep me posted.

I much rather play her once a year!  I know that UL will still be good, but I think there is a glimmer of hope for the remaining Sunbelt teams this year.

I hope so, but I think that reschedule would've happened yesterday.

Saw indyrun at the game this morning.   HE LOOKS FINE, it was good to see him.  Coach Candrea would let  us watch practice on occasion.

Wow!  There's a name from the past.  Glad he's still a fan.  Sure wish he'd come back here to say hi once in awhile.  Tell him hello from all of us.  Or at least some of us.
