Okay. So I forgot to do this last night. Blame it on the one large glass of Boulevard beer. Made me extra sleepy. Anyway, its official now. Michael Roth will start for the Gamecocks Friday night against Virginia. Obviously, the right move by Ray Tanner and Jerry Meyers. Tanner believes in winning the next game. Period. And he’s not going to have his best sitting on the bench when he’s ready to go. Especially when the opponent is throwing its best, in this case LHP Danny Hultzen, the #2 pick in this month’s draft. Plus, Tanner has a fully rested bullpen with Matt Price ready to go extended innings if needed. So, this all sets up well for the Gamecocks. One win and its on to the championhip series Monday night against either Florida or Vanderbilt. I’m looking for an all SEC showdown for the national title.
