World Series time

So we're just hours from the start of the College World Series.

Paul Mainieri plans to start Anthony Ranaudo on the mound for the Tigers. Brian O'Connor is countering with freshman left-hander Danny Hultzen.

Two things are intriguing about this matchup.

One, I'll be interested to see how Hultzen, a freshman, handles the hype of pitching in Omaha for the first time.

And two, we'll see how LSU does with a left-hander.

One key to this game, just like any baseball game is to get into the opponent's bullpen. The best way to do that is to run up the pitch count.

Like I said, those are two things to watch there.

Glenbeau's column on Fri. is right on: Austin Ross could be a key player for LSU. It helps to have 3 solid starters in Omaha, and LSU has 2. One game could depend on Ross' arm. It will be interesting to see if Chad Jones gets an important cameo appearance.
