OPENING THOUGHTS

I don’t know about you guys, but WVU’s game was very boring.

It moved so slowly and just about nothing good happened.

At least the Pens won last night.

Now we play Texas Tech, which is a team we actually matchup fairly well with. It should be a very interesting elimination game.

KEYS TO THE GAME

  • Base running. Leaving ten men on base is just bad.
  • Calls to the bullpen. Let’s not put ourselves in a position where we make four pitching changes in one game.

HOW AFRAID SHOULD WE BE? (SCALE 1-10)

Ten. I’m as afraid of the Red Raiders as I am of bad movies.

PREDICTION THAT WILL HOPEFULLY BE WRONG

Hate to say it (and I know my man m-townjoe will disagree), but I think the Mountaineers are going home early.

Texas Tech beats West Virginia
