Re: Sam Landry - Louisiana Pitcher - Welcome to Norman!

Many things have to come together during any given year for a team to win a World Series. That is true for OU and for everyone else. Sometimes those “things” are harder - needing a freshman class to live up to their billing. Needing transfers to benefit from new coaching and out-perform their histo...

Re: Sam Landry - Louisiana Pitcher - Welcome to Norman!

Yeah, both UCLA and FU took us down to the wire. I don't know squat about Addisen Fisher, but those other 2 pitcher are For Realz. Fortunately when it counted this past season, we were able to hit the whorns pitching. I don't know if all our newcomers will be able to do that. I'm still PO'd about l...

Re: Sam Landry - Louisiana Pitcher - Welcome to Norman!

I think this is a smart move....either way Canady goes! This does NOT signal that Canady is NOT going to join OU, IMO. The only thing this signals to me are: 1.) Coach has considered all the contingencies for 2025 and decided another (experienced) pitcher is an asset to the staff....Canady or not. ...

Re: Sam Landry - Louisiana Pitcher - Welcome to Norman!

I think Patty not sendiing out a 'go boomer' was intended. If she sent one out, everybody on the planet would think it was for Canady and the world would explode. Then when the fan base saw the IG from Landry...there would be major disapointment. And she just didn't want that for Landry---she would...

Re: End of Summer Nat'l Tourneys - Alliance and PGF Schedule Dates

If Parker did decide to pitch that would be a game changer. She's someone who could have ace level stuff. Ever time I think I have a feel for the Canady rumors they take a turn. I almost think OU maybe out with adding another pitcher but we thought we were out on Maxwell last year with the addition...

Re: End of Summer Nat'l Tourneys - Alliance and PGF Schedule Dates

Now that Landry has landed on board, the subject about Parker pitching is moot. I suppose if she had a burning desire to rejoin the pitching ranks, we would certainly make that happen. But I'm assuming that's water under the bridge so to speak now. I like the roster we have now---it looks complete t...

Re: End of Summer Nat'l Tourneys - Alliance and PGF Schedule Dates

I think she would be substantially better than Milloy or Agbayani. If she could be a viable alternative to Smith/Monticelli she could help often. Honestly, the duo of Deal and Lowry will be the critical pitchers for OU in 2025 at this point. If Smith and Monticelli adds positive innings to that, OU...

Re: End of Summer Nat'l Tourneys - Alliance and PGF Schedule Dates

Thank you. I don't expect her to become a weekend starter or anything like that, but was wondering if she could be more than Nicole Mendes was, or eat up mid-innings more than Monti will. If she could get close to what Keeney gave us to provide middle inning relief, then we probably won't need anymo...

Re: End of Summer Nat'l Tourneys - Alliance and PGF Schedule Dates

Milloy and Agbayani may get some innings in the circle next season if OU sticks with 4 pitchers on roster :P Ella Parker could be THE surprise in the circle for OU. Follow-up question regarding Parker pitching---do you think she could get back to her old pitching self if that was needed? And if not...

Re: WBSC World Cup Softball Finals - Games Begin in Italy on Monday

Apparently Alo replaced Coleman and Maxwell replaced Hoover ( who I've read is still rehabbing from an injury.) I'm not totally sure Coleman's heart was in it, and she may have just been exhausted from the season. She does seem to be enjoying lighter fare this summer playing for the Spark. I'm sort ...

Milloy and Agbayani may get some innings in the circle next season if OU sticks with 4 pitchers on roster :P Ella Parker could be THE surprise in the circle for OU. You beat me to this. I actually think we could possibly see Ella Parker return to the circle if we are unable to pick up another pitch...
