    CWS Irony...

    In the case of Starksville it more than a “few” fans. And while everything is in tact that level of racial and ethnic harassment has no business occurring with a player or fan at a sporting event. The fact the University allowed that type of behavior to continue IS an indictment of it. I would...

    CWS Irony...

    Raucous and rowdy is one thing but racial slurs and epithets is completely another and that’s what happened in Starksville. A number of years later my oldest son became good friends with Blackmon and confirmed that what was said to he and other players during that regional was personal...

    CWS Irony...

    I’ve had no use for Mississippi St. ever since the garbage they pulled on Anthony Blackmon and other OSU players during a regional in Starksville. I doubt you could put together a full set of teeth from their entire home crowd. I never heard Bill Platt so mad as he was after the final game and...

    Some idiot fans and umpires have to try to make the game more about them instead of the players between the lines. In both cases they need to be shown the gate. It is ridiculous and should not be tolerated.

    If he makes a peep, they need to bounce his a$$. He's been warned three times, that's more than generous. A little whistling is no big deal, but that constant crap needs to be shut down.

    I would love to have about 6-7 of that type player with 2-3 guys that have some pop in the lineup. We simply have to focus more on recruiting “ball players” and less on “body types”.

    Sorry, you are right. They did not have a good swing at Joe. And you don’t ever go away from the hot hand, especially in the post season.

    You simply don’t pull a pitcher who is effective and Ben was, regardless with Omaha on the line. Terrible decision making.

    Complete mismanagement of the pitching with the game on the line. Kinda like leave your closer with a 100 mph fastball setting in the bullpen while you give away a regional.

    Unreal. We leave struggling starters in and give away unnecessary runs and pull relievers that are effective.

    “Josh” didn’t lift him. He doesn’t make pitching decisions.

    Big mistake not brining Big Joe back out. His stuff was good and DOWN and they were not able to barrel them up.
