Dang BJ, we're even starting to log on at the same time! This is scary! /ohmy.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":o" border="0" alt="ohmy.gif" /> So, I assume it'll be ace vs. ace don't you? You still think the Pats pull it off? You know I'm picking my Rebs. I would have given you a shot until the rains came. But, with TA on the hill, it'll be awfully tough for your boys. /thumb[1].gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":thumb:" border="0" alt="thumb[1].gif" />

 

 

 

Yeah, this loggin in at the same time and sharing viewpoints is beginning to scare me! I may have to take another aspirin to settle the old ticker! Again, I agree that it will be ace vs ace. Showdown at the OK Corral (Orange Krantz Corral). I also agree that the rain delay is playing with minds and attitudes. Some of our boys want to get to football now and some also have signed up to play AAU Basketball so that's on their minds too. End of school is upon us and that's gotta figure into the mix. Any coach worth his salt knows when you give out the caps and gowns in a high school.... it's over. Time to take up the books and go to the house. I just can't call this one--too many variables this time.

 

No realationship to Dave there Mr. RebelsBaseball. I just respect and admire the gentleman for his professionalism on and off the field. I've known him for many, many years. And Johnny McKamey from down at Piney as well. We're all from the "old school" and I suppose we just don't like the "new motivation tactics" used by some of the coaches today. You can take a horse to water, you can't make him drink, but you don't have to beat the crap out of him to motivate him either. Just a little sidebar there.

 

Maybe the rain will subside today. I was up at 3 A.M. making sure the creek didn't rise above my retaining wall out back. So far, we're ok but mama ( who I DO agree with all the time make no mistake about that) is watching for me now. Quick lesson: if mama ain't happy ain't nobody happy and I learned that way before that country crouner belted it out. You need to learn that lesson son before it's too late.

Oh now come on BJ, you're waffleing!! These "variables" sound like excuses to me. If Dez throws up a bunch of zeros on the board against us we'll give the credit where it's due. If TA does the same, we'll expect the credit for him also.

Speaking of waffle-ing, one of them IHOP deals sounds good right about now. Ain't had my breakfast yet. Mama's day to sleep in. Well, Dez is a diamond for sure and I support my Pats all the way, we just got a lot of distractions up here right now. Remember waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay back when we were 17, summer fast approaching, got that little ride all fixed up, honeys looking better every day, perfume drifting in the hallways, carefree breeze blowin, WAIT, it's raining..................anyway you get my drift. I think when they hit the field they'll be okay but your TA is D1 bound so that's a big hill to climb right there. Still, I think our boys are still fired up about that "only 5 innings" statement on the radio and you know what the score was then 15-3. I reckon that's why I'm a little raw too since Mr. RebelsBaseball asked me about it. I just hate for some yahhhhhhhhhhhoooooooooooooo to down my Pats. We're just common folk up here on this end of the county. Boys underestimated a lot by the press and them high falutin daddies down your way. It'll be a good game so my prediction is Pats 13 Rebs 4. So there ya go. My hats off to the boys for providin us with some good games so far.

We have the same distractions down here BJ. Maybe even more because the perfume smells stronger down here because it doesn't have to mask the smell from the Patriot pasture! Just kidding! Don't mistake me for the high falutin dads now! I know exactly where you are coming from on that one. 13-4 huh? Bold. I like it. But, I'll have to go 6-2 in favor of the Rebs. Then we'll take care of DC in the nightcap 5-4. Good luck and take care.

I'm laughing my socks off at the pasture jab there VMS. You are too funny. I know you guys buy that high dollar perfume down there in Colonial Heights. Up here we gotta get that knock off stuff. Well, I'd better run out and feed the cows and water the horses. I'll have to scrap a little something off my boots too if you know what I mean. It's gettin real deep on this thread. You have a goodn too and we'll chat after the Patriot Victory. Take care my friend.

 

Where you been hidin there ETathlete? I agree that Archer kid is like that energizer bunny rabbit. Just keeps on tickin and showin up on the mound. I'm looking for them fuzzy ears to peep out from under his cap anytime. He's class that's for sure. He'll do a good job, but we're ready.

Whatever you do , do not go to Tricites Sports and read about what those Soccer people have done with their championship game.

 

From what I understand the final 2 teams from the Big 9 must be named by Saturday morning. If no more game are played the 2 winners bracket teams will move on. I guess that means pretty much every district must be wrapped up Friday night.

You guys haven't faced Archer this year have you? I was thinking Garvin beat you with a 3 or 4 hitter first time something like 15-3. Then you guys paid us back the next time by about the same score when we pitched Strong. I could be wrong. Actually, Archer is only 7-1 this year and Dez is 6-5. I'd say Dez has threw a lot more pitches than Archer. I could be wrong........... See you guys this evening, I think the weather will cooperate today.

From former post yesterday::::""They want talent right here right now and they don't teach a blasted thing. Over in our area, Coach Payne has a baseball facility that is really used by a lot of our players for individual work and private lessons. I understand you also have one in Kingsport but it is "OFF LIMITS" to some of your high school players.""

 

There is something gravely wrong with High School Coaches limiting or advising their players that a facility is "off-limits" when any extra and additional instruction can only improve the abilities that the same HS coach will be able to take advantage of the next season. Shame on any of the coaches doing this!!!! Obviously it is a power/control struggle.. Maybe these "facilities" are teaching /instructing better than the HS coaches can do on their own.......

Sounds like to me a discrimination issue..... to be addressed.......

Well sir, Coach Payne (TN High who is one of our rivals) works with the kids no matter where they go to school, East or TN High. That shows me he wants to help the kids hone their skills. That right there is a mature, confident, sincerely interested coach. If he works with our kids from East, he has been known to critique them in the game all in good-naturedness of course. He never belittles the boys. They are all "his" he says. He and Coach B have a good working relationship. I agree with you 100% in that a Coach should take advantage of any extra work a young man is prepared to do. In my opinion, the more a kid works the better he will become. Why discourage a strong work ethic? The facility in the Kingsport area is only about a couple of years old they say and is a pretty nice facility but a particular coach in the area, no names here VMScott, told his kids they'd better not go there or they'd be off the team. My question to my "eastmanite" neighbor (as ETathlete calls him), who was telling me this was, what's the big deal about the kids using the facility? Is he scared they will learn something good? I think you hit the nail on the head with it being a power/control thing. Lack of confidence in somebody there.

Well BJ ,I made it thru that rainstorm,but East didn't have an answer for Archer.He shut us out.He really is a good pitcher.Dez tried to hold them off but didn't have his good stuff tonight.

 

ST.Clair homered in the first and Lockhart started a rally in the 5th with a homer and East seem to fall

apart.

South scored 6 runs to end East season.East has had a good year.Good luck to all the seniors.

The Hill beat Crockett 5-3.So Crockett and South are playing the night cap at 8pm for the right to go to

regional with SH. I am going to dry out. The field was a mud bowl.Puddles of water everwhere.

Chris Marti

Brandon Massey

 

Sullivan South

Tristan Archer

Reid Matthews

Lockhart, St. Clair

 

Sullivan Central

Carl Roberts

Matt Harmon

Jamie Crawford,

 

Tried to do it by position but it was very hard. so many are good fielders, hitters, and pitchers or a combo of the two. There are many that are only one and that is hard to pick them over someone who does more than one.
