Yeah that was a big win today when they generated almost no offense above the 2 HRs. Curtis looked exhausted during first inning warmups. Gutsy effort.
I think the devils are in the tournament but heard some folks with concerns. Even a slight PAC tournament run should seal them into a regional.
Pitching was great all weekend overall. Couple minor hiccups. The lack of offense not just this weekend but for the last few weeks it’sa huge concern…and a concern I would have never anticipated.
Why? He is handcuffed with his roster a bit due to injuries and his pitching coach has actually been pretty dang good this year even though I have been railing on the pitching a bunch
ASU hasn’t won a National championship since 1981. They’ve played for a couple since then but haven’t won any. Heck, they haven’t even gotten to Omaha since 2010.I've watched some really good ASU baseball teams that have won national championships. It's hard to settle for less year after year.
ASU doesn't even have their own baseball stadium anymore. I thought it was a huge mistake giving up Packard Stadium.

Tracy smith left this roster in shambles two years ago and Willie is paying the price for that. I think Willie has flaws as a manager but he also hasn’t managed a team prior to this so there will be some growing pains.
As for Packard, I never understood why they left Packard but that wasn’t anything Willie had any control over. They were gone well before he was hired.
I’ve only been a fan since the early 90s and have been witness to some really good teams but none won it all. I’m still unclear why you don’t have faith in Willie…unless it is just the fact he isn’t Winkles or Brock or Murphy which he shouldn’t be held to account for that.
I don’t think staying in Packard would have changed history. I’m not defending the move but I don’t think it matters to the results.I will have faith in Willie Bloomquist as the ASU baseball coach when he gives me reason.
IMO, the athletic department hasn't helped the situation one bit by removing their stadium on campus.

What baffles me is they made the move nearly a decade ago and yet Packard still sits there.
I’m not trying to tell you how to feel but one thing I can say is the improvement from last year to this year was fairly seismic and of what I understand to be happening and what I expect to happen, next year will be even better than this year. Of course you gotta play the games
