Daniel Bradshaw couldn't hold the lead against UNO tonight and LSU lost another baseball game, 6-5.

This isn't to knock Daniel Bradshaw. I feel quite certain he isn't trying to relinquish the lead.

No, this is to question whether LSU's coaching staff has become hardheaded in the sense that it keeps running Bradshaw out there in crucial situations.

The kid is 1-5 with a 5.00 ERA. It's obvious he has good stuff -- he's averaging a strikeout per inning and opponents are hitting .269 against him -- but for whatever reason this isn't working out too well.

Maybe some appearances in a less challenging role is what is needed. Maybe he just needs confidence.

Or maybe the LSU coaches are right and he'll pitch his way through this. But the recent results open up the question.
