Good start for baseball

Just about any baseball season, professional or college, is a marathon.

So it isn't too wise to get excited or disappointed in February. And it certainly isn't time to make rash judgments on a three-game weekend series against Centenary.

But that being said, here are a few thoughts:

1) Anthony Ranaudo means never having to say you're sorry. LSU has a legitimate Friday night ace and that's not exactly news after last season. But Ranaudo has more to pitch for (see the MLB draft) this year.

2) LSU desperately needs a smooth transition from No. 3 starter to No. 2 starter by Austin Ross. So far so good on that one.

3) Hard to believe an LSU-Eunice guy could figure into a weekend rotation but Joey Bourgeois looked the part Sunday. Of course, it is Centenary. It's not like he's pitching the rubber game of the series against Ole Miss or someone in the SEC.

4) Except for Saturday's explosion, the offense had the look of a February offense. Still, it's way to early to even make an evaluation there.
