Still awaiting for Cohen to join us but MSU spokesperson said the MSU rotation should be the same with Pollorena on Friday, Graveman on Saturday and Lindgren on Sunday.
Said he was proud of honor Nick Ammirati won this week with SEC Player of the Week. He said Ammo may be the most improved player he has ever coached during his coaching career. Credited Lane Burroughs for his recruitment of Nick when Nick went to juco after transferring from Seton Hall.
On catcher Mitch Slauter and his broken hand (receiving hand) said will know more the Wed before the Alabama series and believe he is ahead of schedule right now.
Called Vandy a championship club that could make a run in Omaha if they get there. Said expects huge crowds this weekend and that Friday night is already a sellout. Note of Vanderbilt's all-turf field and of Vanderbilt being a year older this year compared to last year when they made a late run.
COhen confirmed that he expects Lindgren to go on Sunday. Said ankle still sore on some days but as long as ankle is good he will pitch on Sunday.
I know you say same rotation, but any chance they make an adjustment with the expected rain on Saturday. If Saturday gets rained out I would expect two 7 inning games Sunday. Pollo might be a better option if that occurs and Graveman on Friday??
They have to play nine innings if I remember correctly.
That wasnt mentioned.
Thats only for games before sunday. Sunday double headers are always shortened due to ncaa regulations on start time of last game

With the turf field, they will try to play Saturday in any condition short of a downpour or thunderstorm. Sucks, since just about every Vanderbilt home series this spring has been beset by adverse weather. We've already played numerous games this year (for instance, the entire Tennessee series) that would not have been possible with a natural playing surface.
Good luck this weekend.
The nice thing about playing on all turf is that you never get a bad hop on the infield. When I played at Belhaven, my freshman year we started playing all our games at Smith-Wills which is turf, and we led the nation in fielding that year. However, when it gets wet, the ball skids a lot more, and it also makes sliding into bases more difficult because you slide further, forcing you to have to begin your slide earlier than usual to prevent sliding past the bag.
