GAMETHREAD: @ Kentucky (3GMS)

Yeeeesh...

 

 

Their isn't much to say about UK. With the exception of last weekends out of nowhere series win against conference leading SCar, the Wildcats have done squat in league play (9-15), with only one series win against Bama (no, they haven't played UGA yet). I doubt it will be a big crowd despite it's importance to their tourney hopes, because it seems anyone even remotely interested in Kentucky sports will be spending the weekend fighting of John Calipari rumors.

So, lets talk about ourselves instead. Watkins is back and will be batting 1st or 2nd and playing LF. Edward has indeed played himself into a starting role, unfortunately this means he will be the next warrior to fight the curse of 3B. Dozar is the odd man out, but he will be ready to sub with Edward should things go south. Meanwhile, CPM isn't saying anything about who will start Saturday. Honestly, it probably depends on whether or not Ranaudo has a good outing.

It has to come together this weekend. Ranaudo, pitching, hitting, all of it. There is no time left. Now is the hour. I feel a motivational speech coming on...

 

 

Only one TV game this weekend, and it's got a high chance of Zombies

Weather: Not looking good, Friday will be tough to get in and Sunday may be a complete washout. Expect a DH somewhere.

Also, I've got a bachelor party in BR on Saturday Night, so if someone wants to pickup the slack on Saturday, maybe even Sunday, that would be great.
