Week Eight (4/9-4/11): vs. The University of Georgia Ugga’s Balls Resting on a Tray of Ice
2021 Record: 18-10 (3-6 SEC).
Player to Watch: NOT Emerson Hancock, thank Jebus. The Seattle Mariners got an absolute steal in Hancock at #6 overall. That man was unreal, and we no longer have to face him. We will also not have to face Cole Wilcox (3rd round, Padres). Be happy.
The best of their current pitchers is likely #27 Fr. LHP/OF Luke “Flight of the Valkyries” Wagner (3-2, 2.95 ERA).
Georgia’s hitters are... fine, but mercurial. Hat tip to #44 RS. So. OF Ben “LaGrange” Anderson who hit .414 in 2020, but is currently batting below the Mendoza line. Their best current hitter is #28 Joshua “The Prison“ McAllister (.362/.382/.638) with 4 2B and 5 HR.
What made The Ugga’s Balls Resting on a Tray of Ice dangerous was the 1-2 punch of Hancock and Wilcox. Again, they’re no longer there. Be happy.
Confidence Level: High.
