What an important series for morale. This team needs wins like no one's business. I'm sending all good mojo the way of Hays, Spencer, Kieschnick, Ramos, Bettis, Stewart, etc. I've also purchased a Kansas State voodoo doll in an attempt to sabotage the series. Whatever works.
As you'll note above, there is a change in the rotation, or rather a number of changes. LAJ's George Watson reports that Nate Karns is out as the Friday starter and inserted in is Zach Stewart. Here's Spencer on the change:
I'm sure as hell hoping that this change works and let's hope that Ramos has solved his control problems from last Saturday where he was awful from the beginning and took blame for the loss. I'm curious as to why it's not Bettis, especially with Ramos' control problems. From all accounts Bettis threw a couple of bad pitches whereas Ramos didn't have any sort of control on Saturday. Again, sending good Mojo towards Lubbock this weekend.
Hays is staying positive:
