You knew this was coming
What a game we have tonight. Ranaudo vs National Mid-Season Player of the Year (and rumored pitching android) Drew Pomeranz. The rest of the series may not be as difficult as you expect. Ole Miss hasn't been impressive against some of the weaker SEC competition (hitting under .300 in conference play) and still doesn't have a Sunday starter. Frankly, given CPM's tendency to play for the series instead of the sweep, I half expected our starting rotation be shuffled around Pomeranz. Watch for Zach Miller and Kevin Mort at the plate.
All this may be for naught, as the weather is definitely not going to cooperate. As of this writing, Oxford is already under a Tornado watch fro the rest of the day and Saturday looks even worse. Double-headers and make up games are a real possibility.
