Time’s running out for Wolfpack Baseball (32-17, 13-12 ACC) to distinguish themselves as one of the top 8 teams in the nation as the Pack took it on t

Thanks for that Canes highlight. I needed that after last weekend.05/18/2016 at 3:40 PM #103572
^ Yeah…I needed a pick me up as well.05/18/2016 at 5:23 PM #103573
From my perspective, this is “show me time.” Clear the hurdles cleanly, and make me a believer that they have a shot to…well…clear the next hurdle.

Time to get the Hole hate crankin’…went to the Coaches Caravan last night in Winston and had an interesting chat with a ’56 IE grad; his daughter went to the dump on the hump and earned a degree in Medical Technology. After a time she decided to go to a real University and got into State to pursue an IE major like her dad. We laughed when he told us that State accepted only 34 of her unx credit hours-we agreed that was still too many!05/18/2016 at 7:38 PM #103576mak4dpakParticipant
Here is hoping the heels have their snake bitten weekend, and our bats wake up. Can’t lose a home series vs. the holes. A sweep would be a good boost going into the acc tourney.05/18/2016 at 9:48 PM #103577MPParticipant
There was a question on another thread regarding how national seeds are determined and how RPI is used for same. Essentially, just like basketball tourney seeding, RPI is only one metric used. To be honest, I don’t know specifically what they weight more or less. They look at RPI as a guide, but it is definitely not the end all…
Shhhhhhhhh. Don’t tell VaWolf.05/19/2016 at 6:57 AM #103582BJD95Keymaster
I wish we had the luxury of doing something fun, like taking the field with 20 players and insisting it was only 9, etc.05/19/2016 at 7:04 AM #103583PackerInRussiaParticipant
Has the snake been ritually sacrificed or anything like that to make sure its effects don’t carry over? Perhaps bury it under the visitor dugout or something?05/19/2016 at 3:07 PM #103616
Pack’s RPI up to #5 now, vs the #2 SOS.
Read this to learn why it is likely a moot point if we don’t win the Carolina series.

Not a good start. Wilder is all over the place.05/19/2016 at 6:24 PM #103647
Yep. But he did end up getting two more outs than I thought he was gonna there for minute.05/19/2016 at 6:24 PM #103648
Wow, that was fast. Wilder is not a starter. He needs to be moved to a long reliever. Nerves get the best of him.05/19/2016 at 6:26 PM #103649
I hope Avent is smart enough to expect something like this would likely occur.05/19/2016 at 6:28 PM #103650
‘Dog’s boy puts out the fire.
Well done Mr. Williams.05/19/2016 at 6:28 PM #103651
Got out of that jam. I have a feeling that runs will be at a premium again.05/19/2016 at 6:35 PM #103652
Wilder is not a starter. He needs to be moved to a long reliever. Nerves get the best of him.
I don’t necessarily disagree. Wilder is one of those guys (and it seems like we’ve had a lot of them lately) who is untouchable when he has his command, but it’s often a crapshoot as to whether he will or not. He reminds me of Ubaldo Jimenez of Orioles’ infamy.
I’d like to see him in mid relief or even as a situational guy to try to build his confidence.05/19/2016 at 6:55 PM #103655
Living dangerously so far.
Better figure it out soon.05/19/2016 at 7:02 PM #103656
Orwig flirts, but guts it out.
Love a drag bunt, move him around now.05/19/2016 at 7:05 PM #103657
Not even….05/19/2016 at 7:05 PM #103658
CLOSE!!!!!05/19/2016 at 7:06 PM #103659
Sorry…I’m really sad that I didn’t make it to the yard tonight.05/19/2016 at 7:07 PM #103660
Back to back steal attempts? Bad form.05/19/2016 at 7:08 PM #103661
Whoa….I think we mighta got screwed on both ends there.05/19/2016 at 7:10 PM #103662
OK…how ’bout we don’t let the leadoff batter get aboard this inning? And also please try to avoid allowing them to load the bases on a load of rubbish.
