Instant Peay Play: APSU Governors baseball fans expectations should be high with Travis Janssen hire

 

Instant Peay PlayClarksville, TN – For the best part of the last 20 years Austin Peay State University’s baseball team has been at or near the top of the standings of the Ohio Valley Conference, so this past week’s announcement of the hiring of Travis Janssen as its new head coach should keep fans expectations high.

Since 1994 the baseball program has won 12 OVC titles, six regular-season championships (1994, 2003, 04, 07, 11, 12) and six OVC tournament titles (1996, 2005, 07, 11, 12, 13), which led to six NCAA tournament appearances and two regional final games.

Colby Wilson’s Atlanta Braves Report: That’s Kinda Amazin’

 

Atlanta BravesClarksville, TN – We make a lot of fun of the New York Metropolitans in this space, but it’s time to acknowledge that the Mets are at least somewhat Amazin’ this season.

(That’s right, the Braves have been so terrible this year that I’ve resorted to the New York Mets to find some good in baseball. Also, scotch.)

With David Wright missing a large swath of the season, Yoenis Cespedes and Juan Uribe not showing up until midway through and a regular cast that includes people you’ve never heard of (Michael Conforto, Juan Lagares), thought to be retired (Curtis Granderson, Michael Cuddyer) or terrible (Lucas Duda, Daniel Murphy, Lucas Duda again), the Mets were supposed to be a year away.

Colby Wilson’s Atlanta Braves Report: CB Radio

 

Written by Colby Wilson

Clarksville, TN – Over the weekend, news trickled out that the Braves had kicked the tires on Jonathan Lucroy, injured All-Star catcher for the dumpster fire that is the Milwaukee Brewers. And this is not to knock Lucroy – a fine catcher who has proven to be worth his weight in pitch-framing and gap-to-gap power – but rather illustrate how disenfranchised the brass has become with Christian Bethancourt.

Seems odd to already be sniffing around for replacements for the Catcher of the Future after 183 big-league at-bats, yet here we (allegedly) are. Lucroy is 29, Bethancourt is 23. Math says Bethancourt is the play for the present and future. But he’s hitting .190 and has ridden pine for much of the season behind A.J. Pierzynski, both because Pierzynski has been raking (13-game hitting streak to start the year, third on the team in hitting at a .281 clip) and because Bethancourt has looked lost at the plate and merely competent defensively.
