<< Hmmmmmm.....Wichita State brings in a kid with a  5.75 ERA for their kid who is throwing a shutout   Hmmmmmm >> (3LT)


That was a reasonable post to make at the time.

After the kid with the 5.75 ERA came through by ending the inning with just two pitches... 
did you make a follow up post about what a genius decision that was by the Wichita State coach..?

Tell the truth...
were you impressed by the way that worked out for Wichita State..?
The "kid" came into the game with a runner on base and one out.
She threw two pitches...  and the inning was over.

Were you jumping up and down... saying what an amazing job that "kid" just did..?

One more point that you need to digest and try to understand - is this...

Bingham, the pitcher who was brought in to face Romeo (when Lange was taken out in the 5th inning)...
was the Wichita State pitcher who their coach used the most (besides Lange).
She was second on the team in innings pitched.

You can argue that, in your view,  she shouldn't have been their number two pitcher (in regard to usage)... 
but... the person who's job is to determine which of the team's players has put in the time in practice, the work, the sweat... 
day in and day out... and deserves to be in the actual games... IS THE COACH.
And the Wichita State coach saw something in Bingham... that resulted in her earning playing time more so than any other pitcher on that team... 
except their number one starter, Lange.

Bringing Bingham into the Oklahoma game...  WAS NOT SOME OUT OF NOWHERE MOVE.
She was used more often than any other pitcher on the team - besides Lange.
It wasn't like bringing Bingham into a game... was something new - or out of the ordinary.

Chew on that for a while...

That's the Hank we know and love.... likening a rifle-shot lineout double play to two Nolan Ryan strikeouts.

No doubt... they (the pitcher & the coach) were lucky... 
that the ball got hit where it did - to result in a line out double play.
Btw... the same way Lange had been lucky in two of the earlier innings. 

BUT... the point remains - THAT IT DID WORK.

You must have been stoked with the result. They bring in this pitcher (that you are concerned about)... 
and in two pitches - shazam, the inning is over.

You can go ahead and admit it... 
At that point in time - you were saying, "Wow... that sure did work out nicely".

A coach taking a pitcher out - after she has been owned by a specific hitter during a game - when that hitter is coming up again... 
is not an "out of nowhere move".  It is an actual coaching strategy  that has been used over and over again.

It is not anything new.

And THAT is exactly what the Wichita State coach was doing.

If you can't understand that - or if you choose to refuse to understand it... 
that's all on you.

What's up with Mizzou-Tulsa?

Is Tulsa driving a hard bargain with the buyout? Or is Mizzou actually thinking of playing this one?

Pretty gutsy move if you ask me. Tulsa ain't no SEMO!

LOL...two singles is not ownership.

You employ more severe stretches than Plasticman, and here you are again. Hope you aren't a lawyer.

But even if she had smashed two extra-base hits -- shown  a dominance -- a homer would only make it 6-2.

You don't bring in a kid with a 6 ERA (every bit of it earned against teams ranked lower than the Sooners) for a kid with half the ERA (and triple the innings) with a  6-0 shutout and one out in the fifth...period

Out-of-nowhere, highly suspicious move
