2008 CWS in Omaha, Here is the field,

Stanford vs FSU

Miami vs Georgia

Rice vs Fresno St.

LSU vs N.Carolina


I watched this over the weekend and this looks like 8 offensive powerhouses. FSU has Buster Posey probably the best hitter in the NCAA. N. Carolina makes another return trip. LSU has a power offensive but pitching is suspect. As much as I want LSU to win this I believe FSU has the bats and pitching to win it all.

Anybody want to talk college baseball?

I've been having fun(and heart attacks) following FSU this season. Posey is such a stud. When they need a hit, he just does it. It's never any doubt. He's that good.

But they lost the opener of their region to the worst team there 8-0, then had to work back through the losers bracket which they obviously did, scoring in the teens most games. Then they lose the first of a three game set to Wichita and have to win the next two, which again they pull off. No more room for slip ups.

I see FSU beating Stanford, Miami beating Georgia, Rice over Fresno St and North Carolina over LSU in the first matchups. Probably a little predictable but that's what I expect.

Miami vs FSU will be a complete tossup, and hopefully a great game. NC should beat Rice, but Rice has been on a roll of late so again great matchup.

Hoping for a good weekend. FSU has always been good, but never actually won one of these.

As good as their lineup is, FSU's pitching is suspect at best and inopportunely bad at worst. Which in a short round robin like the CWS could cost them a game they should otherwise win.

Stanford's a bad first matchup for them since FSU has had issues all year with teams that are defensively sound with quality pitching and Stanford has both.

Also, Miami-FSU could be a 9-hour game without going into extra innings.

Did anybody see on ESPN PTI where Arizona St. booked there on fight (At least that is what ASU says.) to give Fresno St. something to think about only to get shelled by Fresno St.

What a stupid idea.

Crap.

FSU lost for two reasons: their shortstop, who has been a defensive liability all season, made errors at critical points and also their bullpen is suspect. Miami lost for the same reason, except replace "shortstop" with "catcher".

I would contend FSU's biggest mistake is having a guy catch the whole game and then thinking it's a good idea to bring him in to pitch the ninth inning of a tie game. I realize Posey is a stud, but that's just stupid.

But hey at least the track team won a third straight national title. And maybe we get to pound Miami today so it's not all bad news. :)

Wait this isn't even fun anymore. You post a thread about a huge injury, take a few digs at the Cubbies and rather than defend their team like all other fans would, they come on and go "yep, ya got us. We suck.
