    Do it now. There's bad nights in pitching, but enough is enough. I dont care if it is his fault or somebody dug up the ghost of Poche's yips and sat it in the pen, fire that mf'er tonight. Tonight

    Yep everything was up again. Hess was a fucking mess. Stat line won't tell you much about this one.

    It was as if he gave everyone ex lax before going out to the mound. I was actually in awe in how fucked up any Friday night should never be. But it is a representation of a long time coming. Fire him

    Pitchers with the gas are the ones getting beat up. More doubles and balls leaving the park than anyone else. Command? Ugh, hope things improve.

    Its early and its a trade off when you have multiple guys throwing this hard. If you leave it hanging over the middle, a good batter is going to send it.

    FYI, Hess had like a 10 ERA early on last year and brought it back.

    I would note the Strike out numbers not too bad and something to build on.

    Same playing field for everybody. Team era of 5.0 is exactly #166 in a field of 291 D1 teams. So sure, we can see where we stand at the middle and the end of the season, but this remains a historical value for a pitching coach throughout his tenure at LSU with the exception of a few great pitchers who, digressed under his tutelage. Not too hot for a purported pitching whisperer. Dunn has been on my shit list for years now, so call it personal, lol.

    Why exactly, is it such a plague at LSU for throwing a ball, almost any ball? Overhand throws, not the underhanded kind, just the ones thrown by dudes.

    We are two weeks in though.

    Hess started off over a 10 ERA last year. It sure as fuck didn't stay there. You should be happy CPM went and got some big bodies that can swing this year.

    But I would agree with the premise. Dun played at Bama and should have never been offered a job based on that alone!

    It is two weeks in and...

    Tennessee has a .57 era **
    Miss. St. 1.69 era
    aTm 2.0 era
    nicholls st. 2.12 era
    Alabama 2.57 era
    Texas 2.73 era
    Aubarn 2.73 era
    New Orleans 2.83 era
    Florida 3.17
    Arkansas 3.36 era
    Southern Alabama 3.81 era

    ...and on and on.

    The common denominator, they all with the exception of Tenn** who is a potential matchup at Hoover, are on our schedule. I sure am glad we went out and got those sluggers, but none of that has anything to do with the pitching coach and his performance with a top-ranked class, heavy on pitchers.
