Live from Trustmark Park


It’s time for some baseball, Governor’s Cup style.

Here is your pregame note to ponder: MSU is using its 25th starting lineup in just 36 games this season. The big change is that Brooks Lewis is starting at catcher. Russ Sneed is at third for the injured Connor Powers.

On the mound, it’s Ole Miss’ Brett Bukvich (1-1, 8.10) vs. Tyler Whtiney (0-0, 6.10).

  1. thespear Says:

    wow our starting pitcher has a better ERA than the rebels guy

  2. Gregg Ellis Says:

    yeah, and through both innings the two look like All-Americans.

    MSU has one hit and Ole Miss has none. It’s been six up and six down for the Rebels.

  3. Gregg Ellis Says:

    In the T3, Ole Miss has taken 1-0 on a passed ball that allowed Keith Mills to score from third.

  4. farley662 Says:

    Yeah, we suck like a hooker with a vacuum cleaner.

  5. Gregg Ellis Says:

    Does a hooker need a vacuum clearner to suck? Just asking.

    Farley, on my trip today, I passed Target on Lakeland and couldn’t help but laugh thinking of your story.

  6. farley662 Says:

    Just saying we have a massive amount of suckage going on right now.

  7. Gregg Ellis Says:

    We’re now in the T4, and MSU tied the score at 1-1 on a sac bunt that scored Grant Hogue.

  8. gmvbham7 Says:

    Lots of folks drinking beer tonight GG? Who has the most fans OM or MSU?

  9. Gregg Ellis Says:

    Not sure about the beer, except that there isn’t any in the press box. I’d say Ole Miss has a slight advantage in the crowd. It’s not a sellout, though.

  10. Gregg Ellis Says:

    In the T5, MSU leads 3-1 after scoring two runs in the fourth, one on an RBI single by Ryan Powers and the other on a tw-out error by Ole Miss second baseman Zach Miller.

  11. judwe Says:

    Don’t know If y’all saw it but Anthony Randolph / LSU has signed with an agent…

    LSU… Bless their hearts.

  12. Gregg Ellis Says:

    We’re now in the B6 and Ole Miss leads 4-3 after puttin gup a 3-spot.

  13. gmvbham7 Says:

    Any news on basketball commitments Gregg?

  14. Gregg Ellis Says:

    Outside of Beckham, I haven’t. Signing day is tomorrow.

  15. cajundawg Says:

    Gregg did those 2 steals give Hogue the lead in the SEC in steals again?

  16. Gregg Ellis Says:

    Yes it did, cajun.

  17. bigdraws Says:

    2 guys in scoring position with no outs. Now one outs. Everybody knows we won’t tie the game too. How depressing.

  18. bigdraws Says:

    A double by Jet. I love being wrong.

  19. cajundawg Says:

    big… 1 outs??

  20. Gregg Ellis Says:

    5-4 MSU in T8 thanks to a double by Jet Butler.

  21. bigdraws Says:

    Sorry, cajun. I’m not a moderater.Can’t fix typo’s.

  22. cajundawg Says:

    Just kiddin bro… a little humor… very little πŸ™‚

  23. bigdraws Says:

    GG, Do you think Jim Ellis missed a good chance to be a jockey? Man that guy is small.

  24. bigdraws Says:

    Back at ya with some lame humor. Here we go again with some walks. We just can’t stand having a comfortable lead.

  25. bigdraws Says:

    McNicholl to the mound. Not sure if that helps though.

  26. Gregg Ellis Says:

    LOL, draws.

  27. cajundawg Says:

    We can’t stand prosperity… Bring on Weatherford… if they beat us let ’em beat our best

  28. cajundawg Says:

    Polk gets tossed… my prediction

  29. bigdraws Says:

    After the trip to the mound….
    Two balls and a balk. I’m surprised he isn’t a candidate for head coach. Absolutly ridiculous.

  30. bigdraws Says:

    Ryan saved our bacon for the time being. Here comes the hook.

  31. Gregg Ellis Says:

    Weatherford is now in. I really like State’s chances of holding on and winning now. In seven appearances this season, he’s allowed just two hits and struck out 27 and walked five in 13 innings of work.

  32. cajundawg Says:

    Oh, well… no KY fire tonight… huh? πŸ™‚

  33. bigdraws Says:

    He looked real strong on Sunday. Hope it continues.

  34. bigdraws Says:

    You’ve gotta be kidding me. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!

  35. cajundawg Says:

    That’s baseball…

  36. cajundawg Says:


  37. bigdraws Says:

    Maybe he can settle down and finish up for us.

  38. farley662 Says:

    That was just piss poor.

  39. Gregg Ellis Says:

    That’s the third time I’ve seen that in the last couple of days.

  40. bigdraws Says:

    Cajun, that’s the kind of smart@$$ comments we like over at the van. Why don’t you come join us sometime. There’s a link over on the side of Gregg’s main page.

  41. farley662 Says:

    He easily had that base stolen. Should have held on to the ball.

  42. bigdraws Says:

    Come on dawgs. Shut em down.

  43. cajundawg Says:

    Weatherford is the shining light in the darkness…

  44. bigdraws Says:

    Jim is on comcast tonight. Having to listen to the guy who tries to imitate him.

  45. cajundawg Says:

    Over at the van? Down by the river?

  46. bigdraws Says:

    Here ya go man.

  47. bigdraws Says:

    Got some speed on. Come on dawgs.

  48. bigdraws Says:

    I thought we only did that. Gave us a break. Take advantage guys.

  49. Gregg Ellis Says:

    Good gosh this game is moving slow.

  50. rebel2011 Says:

    jake morgan? what? i hope he does not lose the game for us. what about scott bittle?

  51. bigdraws Says:

    PA’s board slow 2011? Welcome.

  52. rebel2011 Says:

    yep, he is not at the game tonight so i figured that i would come over here and give yall a little company

  53. bigdraws Says:

    Glad to have ya.

  54. bigdraws Says:

    Not trying to sound like an advertisement, but rebs are welcome over at the van also.

  55. bigdraws Says:

    Runner at 3rd, but double play still in effect.

  56. Braves Dawg Says:

    Live from the TP.

  57. bigdraws Says:

    Who’s coming in?

  58. Says:

    Double play would definitely suck.

  59. rebel2011 Says:

    this game sure is a close one. although i hope that we win, it has been a real great governor’s cup whatever the outcome is. i really hope we hold you right here though because i do not like our chances too much against weatherford.

  60. bigdraws Says:

    For a newcomer to the game you really know your stuff. (sarcasm off)

  61. rebel2011 Says:

    justin cryer is coming in draws

  62. bigdraws Says:

    Where’s PA tonight 2011? Not enough room for two heads that big in the pressbox?

  63. bigdraws Says:

    1.10 era. Pretty impressive.

  64. Braves Dawg Says:

    That was impressive.

  65. bigdraws Says:

    whoof whoof whoof!!!

  66. rebel2011 Says:

    i believe he said that he had his daughter’s choir concert or something like that at school. oh great. i dont know if we have too good of a chance now.

  67. bigdraws Says:

    If there’s a bright spot, it didn’t effect his era though.

  68. bigdraws Says:

    Come on Cody, get the bat off your shoulder.

  69. rebel2011 Says:

    richard cross we know that the leadoff man will score if he reaches. you have told us that every inning for about the last 5 it seems like

  70. bigdraws Says:

    Is Kellum not doing the game, or does he just say that during breaks?

  71. cajundawg Says:

    big… I have book marked the VAN… will be czeching it out later…

  72. rebel2011 Says:

    i am so mad i am about to turn the computer off. no offense to you state fans, but we should not be losing this game at all. no excuses whatsoever

  73. Braves Dawg Says:

    Well we’re leading the SEC in something, 51 DP’s.

  74. rebel2011 Says:

    kellum i am sure is, but richard cross is on CSS and i am watching it instead of listening to it

  75. Braves Dawg Says:

    Hope that doesn’t come back to bite us.

  76. cajundawg Says:

    Crap! Another INSURANCE run would have been nice

  77. bigdraws Says:

    Check it out tomorrow during work hours Cajun. That’s when its at it’s best. 2011, you won’t get any sympathy from me. It’s been a long season. But I do know how you feel.

  78. rebel2011 Says:

    come on now rebs, its cullan kight, tim ferguson, and brett basham. 7-8-9 hitters. just our luck. hopefully we can give weatherford his first (and second or more) earned run of the season

  79. bigdraws Says:

    That being said, yall will prolly come back and win.

  80. cajundawg Says:

    Know how you feel 2011… this yr has be exasperating at best… who’da thunk it! :O

  81. Braves Dawg Says:

    Got it in the corner!

  82. bigdraws Says:

    Didn’t see the catch, but it probably looked just like me out there.

  83. rebel2011 Says:

    wow. you have gotta be kidding me. i dont think we have a chance unless basham can hit another huge home run. ( he hit the game winner in the 8th against LSU for those who didnt know)

  84. cajundawg Says:

    I’m with big…no sympathy here… just some understanding…

    FINALLY a big play for us!

  85. Says:

    Nice snatch there. And yes, draws, I said snatch πŸ™‚

  86. farley662 Says:

    Big time catch.

  87. Braves Dawg Says:

    It didn’t look like the guy in 9th grade PE class, that’s for sure.

  88. bigdraws Says:

    I was listening to the game when that happened 2011.

  89. cajundawg Says:

    meaning to ‘yank’???

  90. bigdraws Says:

    Here we go again.

  91. farley662 Says:

    Time to steal 2nd and have us throw it into center and him score from 1st.

  92. cajundawg Says:

    Got faith?

  93. Says:

    You always have to see it half empty farley.

  94. rebel2011 Says:

    hopefully we can get to the top of the order to fuller smith without a DP here

  95. 2thdoc Says:

    Need a ground ball

  96. bigdraws Says:

    Strike em out, throw em out double play?

  97. cajundawg Says:

    Farley… do I detect sarcasm in your voice?

  98. farley662 Says:

    No, that’s my normal tone.

  99. 2thdoc Says:

    a K will do

  100. bigdraws Says:

    Steeeeeeeeeeeriiiiiiiike 3!!!

  101. Braves Dawg Says:

  106. Says:

    GG could steal second on the dawgs this year.

  107. cajundawg Says:

    Is weatherford a NASTY boy?

  108. farley662 Says:

    Do OM fans know what a freakin balk is? Morons.

  109. farley662 Says:

    Wrap it baby!

  110. rebel2011 Says:

    he was safe!!!!!!!!!

  111. Braves Dawg Says:

    Thanks for slowing yourself down on the slide there bud!

  112. cajundawg Says:


  113. bigdraws Says:

    We needed that!! Damn that feels good!!!

  114. Says:

    Wow, I actually enjoyed a baseball game.

  115. bigdraws Says:

    Did he slide into first?

  116. cajundawg Says:

    Oh well… 2011…


  117. 2thdoc Says:

    WOOOOOO! We get a big ole governor’s throw us a crumb victory trophy

  118. farley662 Says:

    Hell, I’ll take any trophy the way this year has started for us Dawgs.

  119. bigdraws Says:

    Better than nothing 2th. And you gotta remember, everything he does this year will be the last time. You better have your asses there for the last game.

  120. Says:

    A nice break from all the recent “State Fan Blues”

  121. Braves Dawg Says:

    He slid Draws.

  122. cajundawg Says:

    anymore news on Gordon? late breaking…kinda stuff

  123. farley662 Says:

    Can I bring the rest of me too? Not just my PA?

  124. 2thdoc Says:

    Good win. We are a lock to host a super regional. Get your tickets .

  125. bigdraws Says:

    Come on Cajun. Don’t bring that up please. I’m trying to enjoy myself, and I’m out of jalapeno cheddar cheetos.

  126. bigdraws Says:

    2th, you been on 6 pack today? You been watching with SPD?

  127. 2thdoc Says:

    Had a bag myself Draws.

  128. 2thdoc Says:

    He’s here eating cheetos

  129. Braves Dawg Says:

    A bag from SPD?

  130. 2thdoc Says:

    I just hate to see us like this with 3 wins. Depressing even with a win. Maybe with Weatherford back we can get on a roll

  131. cajundawg Says:

    I’m eating loaded bake potato pringles… mmmmmm good stuff… with my DDP!

    Sorry for the JG comment… didn’t know it was off limits… DUH!

  132. cnd46 Says:

    Good win tonight against a quality opponent. Hopefully this will springboard us to a better SEC record.

  133. bigdraws Says:

    JK cajun. Left you a welcome mat over on the van.

  134. cajundawg Says:

    a welcome mat?? how upity!!

  135. cajundawg Says:


  136. rebel2011 Says:

    with anyone faster than fuller smith he would have been safe easily. off the bat i thought he was safe for sure. oh well. at least it doesnt matter for SEC games. i will give it to you though. it was a good win for the Dogs and Polk. congrats. it was his last game against the rebs unless they meet in Hoover for the SEC tourney

  137. cajundawg Says:

    sect??? fat chance

  138. cajundawg Says:

    We will have to sweep 2 series and win all of the remaining series to ‘sniff’ the TOURNEY… at least that is my take! I know you only have to be top 8, but we are SOOOOOOO far back… 3 games is a mountain we might not be able to climb!

  139. bigdraws Says:

    I think that’s probably what he knows. Nice jab JB…I mean 2011.

  140. cajundawg Says:

    Pigott on Sunday… sounds good

  141. bigdraws Says:

    Is he pitching Sunday? That would be big.

  142. bigdraws Says:

    I’m out Cajun. I’ll sleep with a πŸ™‚ on my face tonight.
