Auburn baseball wins again

Hey everyone. Kevin Patterson's pinch-hit DONG in the eighth inning scored three runs ... and helped the Tigers earn a 5-3 win at Ole Miss on Thursday night.

Implications? I'm glad you asked.

The Tigers now are one win away from clinching the Western Division title.


**SP Cory Luckie allowed three runs in six innings.

**Relievers Bradley Hendrix and Austin Hubbard combined to hold Ole Miss scoreless during the 7th, 8th and 9th innings.

**CF Trent Mummey and DH Tony Caldwell had two hits apiece.

AU baseball is exactly where I want, at aminimum, all Au teams to be at the end of the season. You hold your destiny in your on hands. i hate to have to get to the end of any season and need to hope another team loses so AU can win a division or title. I like for AU to step up and take it.

No, I just had to get everyone on the same post. I have enough trouble following the conversation without having to follow two!

Sorry. From last thread.

What I heard involved a young lady and accusations. However, the reason he's still on the team is there is some question of the validity of the accusations. And some evidence that it was sort of a setup! Anyway, just checking to see if others had heard something along this line. It's kind of out there, but comes from reasonable person.

9:34 PM  
Blogger CH=B said...

It's unfortunate when things like that happen. You want to believe the young ladies when they make those claims but you see it far to often that they are not true.

9:36 PM

Hopefully they will get to the truth before false accusations (if they are false) ruin his life.

Jay. I knew better that to even ask you about that one. In any event. Whatever he was involved in led you to speculate he was gone, which means it's pretty heavy. Yet he isn't, which also means there is some skepticism regarding his offense, whatever that may by.

You could just say,,hot, or cold.

I like this baseball team. Don't give up, and they can mash the ball. We will lose a lot of firepower off this team after the season, so we better make hay while we can.

Expect to hear comments now about grant wrapping up the state for basketball recruits. Really can't sya anything about barbee not getitng these kids. he was late to the table for them AND Au has no room right now for any recruits in 2011. Grant can take all he wants for 2011. unless we have attrition, Barbee will not be able to take on anyone.

AU filled all slots (6) for this coming class. AU has no seniors for 2010 class. Therefore, unless someone leaves, Au has no scnollys for 2011. That was terrible planning by the former staff. Never leave yourself a goose egg for 1 year in recruting.

WTC that is a terrible case of mismanaging scholarships. But will give credit where credit is due thought Grant would be Lebo esque good at X's and O's but no recruiting prowess. I guess I was wrong Grant got 2 instate recruits that lebo would never get. But hopefully we can have a spot for Trevor Lacy would hate to see the Turd get him also.

10:47 PM

I think someone will leave the team next year. Barbee needs a big point guard and I think he has him picked out already. Just need to make room for him, which I think he will. you may hear something like, he did nto buy into the system, or it may be academic casualties.

If AU wins either of the last two games, not only will they win the West but they will set an AU record for SEC wins. Not bad for a team the had so many injuries early on.
Baseball is a long season, but recall AU went to play AZ and got handed 3 losses. This team has gotten much better (in the hitting area anyway) over the season.

Jay G,

Any chance there's a piece on Paws in the works? If I had to guess , most AU fans don't know a whole lot about him. Baseball wasn't getting a lot of attention when he came aboard, so there wasn't a buzz around him like Barbee. He's an interesting dude with a lot of fight in him.

"Church" to protest at funeral of Ronnie James Dio

According to the official web site of the Westboro Baptist Church (WBC) — an independent Baptist church and hate group known for its hatred of homosexuals and its protest activities (which include picketing funerals) — WBC is planning on picketing Ronnie James Dio's public memorial service on Sunday, May 30 at 2:00 p.m. at The Hall Of Liberty located at Forest Lawn Hollywood Hills, 6300 Forest Lawn Drive, Los Angeles, California. What will presumably one of WBC's standard "peaceful sidewalk demonstrations" is meant to "remind you who worship that old Serpent, Satan, that your time is very short," according to a post on the "Upcoming Picket Schedule" page of the web site. The post continues, "You know 67 year old, Satan-worshiping (or at least one of their enablers) Ronnie James Dio (of showing his devil horns to the world each time he goes in public) BLACK SABBATH fame is dead, right? We'll be there! Just because the chances of any of God's elect being amongst this group of heavy metal sycophants is slim to none does not mean they should not get some good words."

The post goes on to say, "Yes, it is true that Ozzy Osbourne did 'accidentally' bite off the head of a bat, but THAT is the least of their sins (little nasties!), they currently do not do that, but they throw raw meat to the audience and encourage violence of EVERY FORM!"

The WBC web site then proceeds to list "admitted sins of this now dead and in hell pervert: 1) He hates his neighbor(s) starting with Ozzy Osbourne, and continuing down to his pornography star niece Gen Padova! 2) He hates God. Pay especial attention to the fact that he changed his original sir name from Padova to Dio, which means God in Italian. 3) Ronnie the simpleton enabled, and encouraged Sorceries: everything he was about including the little finger horn thing (he got this from his mother which is an incantation to ward off the 'evil eye') to the drugs, bloody raw meat and his fellowship with those pentagon necklace wearing freakish band members."

The post concludes: "Yes, Ronnie James Padova (NOT DIO) is currently residing in hell. When all those who worship him and his false gods meet him in hell it will be just like this: Isaiah 2:12 For the day of the LORD of hosts shall be upon every one that is proud and lofty, and upon every one that is lifted up; and he shall be brought low: Isaiah 14:11 Thy pomp is brought down to the grave, and the noise of thy viols: the worm is spread under thee, and the worms cover thee. Praise God all ye, His people. The Great Day of the Lord draws nigh. AMEN!"

According to, the members of the Topeka, Kansas-based Westboro Baptist Church filed a legal brief with the high court last year indicating that they "believe it is their duty to protest and picket at certain events, including funerals, to promote their religious message: 'That God's promise of love and heaven for those who obey him in this life is counterbalanced by God's wrath and hell for those who do not obey him.'"

The congregation is made up mostly of pastor Fred Phelps and his family. The pastor has 13 children, and at least 54 grandchildren and 7 great-grandchildren. He described himself as an "old-time" gospel preacher in a CNN interview in 2006, saying, "You can't preach the Bible without preaching the hatred of God."
