This is why I am not a Gambler. You have to score runs and dead bats do not work LSU looked good, and OSU not so much. I have no preference now. I did see some good baseball, especially in the earlier games.

With the good pitching in the CWS, the team that can gorilla a ball out of the park has an advantage.....since it is more difficult to move runners around the bases.

LSU did that with FSU...and repeated with HR's against Oregon State.

Ameritrade is a big field...and it takes power to clear the fence....

Tight game last night. Florida seems to win a lot of one run games. This has been a good playoffs. It is a toss up tonight. LSU's Power can cripple you.

Congratulations to Florida. They won the series and that's all that counts. I saw some very good baseball and even with errors and slumps, every team was in it til the end. I like the series.

Lots of good baseball played in the south and west.
