CWS: Quick rain delay thoughts

By Eric Sorenson - June 24, 2006


Just as soon as Cole Gillespie struck his lighting-quick bat for a 2-run lead for OSU, the mother nature version struck as well and stopped play. OSU up 3-2 with no outs in the top of the 6th.

couple of notes:
- 7 of 9 OSU players have a hit off of Andrew Miller.
- Only 4 of 9 UNC batters have a hit off of Dallas Buck.
- My two "key" hitters in OSU's lineup, Darwin Barney and Cole Gillespie, are 2-for-4 with 3 RBI.
- My two "key" hitters in UNC's lineup, Mike Cavasinni and Josh Horton, are 0-for-5 with a walk.
- I like UNC's defense so far. They've turned a pair of double-plays in the first two innings to escape jams and nearly got a third DP in the 5th.
- Of UNC's five hits, only Reid Fronk's sharp liner in the 5th inning was a hard hit ball.
- The "Who Cares" Department gets tapped again as Roy Williams is once again interviewed on TV in the stands.

As for the "Who Cares" department: I would add who cares about somebody's momma, brother, girlfriend (unless she's gorgeous) and little league coach. Who cares about how to break in a catcher's mitt (Jeff Brantley). Who cares about all the extraneous talk (ESPN announcers). What I do care about: Call the players by their right names. When you do the lineup, do the right team. When you say who won the game, get the team name right. What I really hope is that one day ESPN will "get" college baseball.
