No time to panic

The problem with college baseball is that teams don't play enough games (see professional baseball) to keep a win or a loss in easy perspective for the fan base.

For example, LSU's loss to Southeastern Louisiana on Tuesday night, on the heels of a loss to Stetson on Sunday, might cause some to panic.

But this is BASEBALL. You're going to lose some games that, on paper,people might not think you would lose -- during the midweek.

The key is to win on the weekends. LSU starts off SEC play with Tennessee this weekend.

"We feel like we're a much-improved team over what we were last year,'' LSU coach Paul Mainieri said today during the SEC teleconference. "There were a lot of question marks about our team that I had when we were starting SEC play last year, simply because I didn't know the players as well and there were some areas of concern as far as our talent.

"I feel very confident in our ballclub. I think we have a good team. I think our best days are ahead of us.''
