TCU's weekend series with 20-18 BYU starts tonight, actually, because silly Mormons wont play baseball on Sunday. Frogs send ace Kyle Winkler to the mound tonight with his 7-1 record and 1.38 ERA. The Friday starter is once again projected to be team anti-ace Erik Miller, whose 3-6 record with 4.54 ERA aren't quite as impressive as Winkler. However, according to the gofrogs.com preview, Miller is a left handed pitcher, so maybe he's trying something new. Couldn't hurt, could it? Saturday's start goes to the super dependable Steven Maxwell, who is 5-0 with a 2.90 ERA. BYU counters with RHP Taylor Cole (3-3, 2.98 ERA) on Thursday, RHP Chris Capper (3-2, 3.65 ERA) on Friday, and the dreaded and feared TBA takes the hill on Saturday.
BYU is also going to be without 4 players tonight, including starting outfielder Ryan Bernal, because they were suspended for 3 games after a post game fight with some New Mexico players. If there's one thing I've learned about BYU in my years following their sucky existence, it's that they are hot heads and have a hard time keeping their cool when they're getting their asses handed to them- this just further illustrates my stance on that. In their defense, you'd have some pent up rage issues too if you had multiple wives to deal with, or in the case of the unmarried ones, you'd have pent up rage too if you'd never ejaculated in your entire life.
In all seriousness, though, we definitely need a sweep. I say that pretty much every weekend, but I figure our chances for a regional hosting site are done, so it's time to focus on winning the conference again and beating down the lousy Mountain West baseball competition (especially crybaby Mormons). Oh, and for those who want to watch, all 3 games are being broadcast live on BYU-TV, so you can watch baseball in between commercials about how bad you are for drinking, having pre-marital sex, and using tobacco products.
