Can You Pitch?

Just a thought or two before I head out. Who on Earth is left to pitch for either side today? If it wasn't bad enough that both teams have been through starters 1-4, last night's slugfest forced more arms out of the 'pen. I'm not even going to hazzard a guess as to who will take the mound today.

One thing I will suggest is that we might be in for more offensive fireworks today. With a drained pitching staff, warmer weather (high 80's today) and two teams that combined to score twenty runs last night and you've got the makings for another track meet. Of course, having said that, I've probably all but assured a 1-0 pitcher's duel.

Regardless of the outcome, today is the last day of the tournament. It's been a great experience, but boy, oh boy, do I have a lot of work around the house I need to catch-up on. Five days away from the real world and you get behind. The rain predicted for tomorrow better hold off until I get done grilling. (I'm firing up the BBQ for lunch tomorrow. I know one thing that won't be on the fire--hot dogs. I've seen enough of them for a while.)

Trying to ease the strain on the pitching staffs at the end of the season is one of the main reasons the Big 12 changed the format for their tournament this year. All teams are guaranteed 3 games. The final two teams play a fourth game. That really takes the pressure off pitching staffs going into the Regionals. With the old double-elimination format, if a team ended up in the loser's bracket, that put a lot of pressure on the rotation and could actually hurt a team quite a bit if they had to turn around and play at a Regional. I wonder if the Big 12 will continue with the new format and whether or not other conferences will start changing to something similar over the next few years.
