Ducks Baseball: 2014 Season Preview thumbnail

Our very own, Oregontrack, was kind enough to preview the Ducks Baseball team for the upcoming 2014 season, which starts in just over 2 weeks. Bats I’ve got five guys I’m comfortable with. 2B Aaron Payne, RF/DH Tyler Baumgartner, 1B Mitchell Tolman, RF/DH Kyle Garlick, and 3B Scott Heineman. Except for Garlick, all started the [...]

Diamond Ducks: A quick look-ahead to 2014 thumbnail

Let’s start with some truisms. The team went 48-16, setting a new club record for wins in a season, besting the club record they set last year. This team was flawed, but a flawed team heavy on pitching but weak offensively can still go 48-16 and claim a national seed. A flawed team heavy on [...]

Diamond Ducks: The Eugene Regional thumbnail

In 2010 we were shipped off to the Norwich Regional, where we had to deal both with the host school, Connecticut, and perennial powerhouse Florida State. Despite the regional being in Norwich, FSU was the #1 seed. It was kind of a quirky thing. Regardless, everyone knew the region ran through the Seminoles. As the [...]

2013 Oregon Baseball Preview thumbnail

What follows is a general overview of the upcoming 2013 season. I’d consider the depth charts below a rough draft, as positions and playing time can be very fluid the first month or so. Things could look very different by the end of the season and, heck, they could look very different by the time [...]

6-0, 5-4, 6-1. These are your scores from the past weekend – all wins. We’ll get back to these in a moment. Perhaps of more importance to you and the program, however, were games in which Oregon had nothing to do with anything: USC 8, Arizona 4, and California 6, UCLA 5. Oregon is now [...]

I wrote down some thoughts after each game finished over the last week. These thoughts and a nickel will buy you something for five cents, but thanks for reading them all the same. Oregon 3, Oregon State 2 Non-league wins aren’t supposed to feel this good, right? Maybe – sweeping Vandy sure was fun. But [...]

As you may have noticed, singular guy who probably reads this blog, I don’t really like doing detailed game recaps. If you’re reading this you probably already know what happened, and if you’re reading this you definitely have access to a newspaper’s website that can break down the games into their nitty gritty details. Here’s [...]

I wrote the following over three nights. I don’t usually do that – I like to do a general write-up on Sunday night, taking in the series as a whole – but I had enough free time this weekend to three separate recaps.)  (Image courtesy of Oregon Daily Emerald) Friday – UO 4, Cal 1 Tonight was [...]
