our pitching has definitely been the best part of the team so far.

funny to think that pre season the pitching was what kept us from being seen by most experts as a top 5 team and legit "repeat" threat. when up to this point our weekend pitching has been more consistent than last years (bc dyson struggled so much to open the year and jay brown was avg at best).

Yeah, our young guys have really stepped up in the weekend rotation. Webb and Neff both went out with injuries and have been replaced by stellar pitching from Koumas and Holmes. Taylor has been unhittable as our set up men out of the pen and Price of course is a shut down closer. Meyers has done a very good job with our staff this year. If our pitching keeps up like this we will be very hard to beat. Should be a great series this weekend with Vandy.

You really can't say enough about South Carolina's pitching staff. You watch all of those guys throw and none of them make you go "wow" except maybe Michael Roth. But they all throw strikes and have nearly impeccable command of the strike zone. Tanner is doing a better coaching job this year than he did last year, and that's saying something.

As dumb as this sounds, I will say it's the surprises that are most surprising about the squad, but also I believe sets us up for trouble. Westmoreland & Webb's difficulties have surprised me, and the previously little known guys stepping up big (Koumis, Holmes, and to some extent Harper) have been surprising. Someone always seem to step up when you need, but would like to see the big guns work out their kinks for the meat grinder that is the post-season. Roth dominates and that's no surprise. Taylor & Neff seem to be in their natural progression of improvement over last year and doing well. I don't see Meyer using as many situational appearances as Calvi used last year, but it doesn't worry me - pitching is not the current weakness of this team by any stretch.
