    Those are both very respectable considering where BYU plays, starting your first 10 games on the road of every season, and the conference they play is very offense heavy.

    Last year they had Rucker who was 11-1 with 2.73, Rogers 6-2 with 3.40 and Buffo 6-2 with 3.62 before hurting his elbow. A team era of 4.09 (compared to 4.76 this season) Yet they had a better year this year.
    I believe Littlewood can find some pitchers to develop. He's not going to get many near misses from the major leagues, but there are so many pitchers with strong stuff that need to learn location, if he scouts them right, BYU should be able to find three decent starters and one middle reliever and a closer. The mission thing kills BYU's development as well.

    Somebody needs to let these college coaches know that people have done the math and you should let hitters swing away rather than give the other team a free out.
    Great point.
