    Thanks for that Canes highlight. I needed that after last weekend.

    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.

    GO EDWIN, GO EDWIN!

    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!

    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.

    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.

    I wish we had the luxury of doing something fun, like taking the field with 20 players and insisting it was only 9, etc.

    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?

    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.

    Yep. But he did end up getting two more outs than I thought he was gonna there for minute.

    Wow, that was fast. Wilder is not a starter. He needs to be moved to a long reliever. Nerves get the best of him.

    I hope Avent is smart enough to expect something like this would likely occur.

    Got out of that jam. I have a feeling that runs will be at a premium again.

    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.

    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.
