Snap Analysis and Predictions:
Vanderbilt has the clear advantage in all aspects in this one. You know this. We’re the national seed; they beat the Campbell Humpin’ Camels to win their conference and get a bid. Still, feel free to read on.
Offense: Aside from the Hall of Name worthy #4 5th Year Sr. LF Zacchaeus Rasberry (.314/.368/.577) and #5 Jr. OF Kyle “Dan” Decker (.316/.403/.385), we don’t love them hose on offense.
Is Blue Hose LF Zacchaeus Rasberry:— unlimited baseball scholarships blog (@anchorofgold) June 3, 2021
a) A member of the Key and Peele college football all star team?
b) The name of a snake-handling preacher who leapt to his death after "The Great Disappointment?"
c) Dolemite’s arch-rival?
d) Someone with an unnerving amount of sister wives?
As a team, them Hose are batting a paltry .262/.350/.410. For context, their opponents have hit .294/.381/.442 against them. For yet more context, the Dores have slashed in .301/.390/.509 2021.
Pitching: Come on now.

Carter Young’s back! They’re easing him back into the lineup, and also, he will probably not be switch hitting today.
Carter Young has only hit left-handed since dislocating his left shoulder two and a half weeks ago and would likely hit lefty against lefty pitching this weekend if he plays, Tim Corbin says— Max Herz (@MaxHerzTalks) June 3, 2021
