Todd. He has been more dominant over the past month. I don't think you can go wrong with either, but Todd has been unhittable.

Can you imagine pitching Nick about 7-8 strong innings and then bring in Jess to finsh the game.....wow

But I would probably give the ball to Nick...he has earned it and has experience pitching in big games like that.

Todd.  His stuff is nasty to right and left handed hitters.  if you load up your lineup with rightys against Nick then he can be hit hard as we've seen.  I think that we are lucky to have to make that kind of decision between two bad a**es!

Todd pitches 7 and let Nick get the save  ;)

and I wont say that scenario is impossible...its just we sort of have to win 3-4 games in the regional, 2 in the Super Regionals and 4 or 5 more in the college world series just to get that far.  I could actually see a situation where we got to a game where we could win the championship and would have our pickings of schmidt and todd.  its entirely possible

problem is getting there folks, and finding at least one more player to win us games...preferably 2 more.  schmidt and todd could win a super regional for us, but could only get us so far in the College World Series and Regional play.   thats the reason I think the SECT is crucial, because this is our first chance to look at how we fair in a tournament bracket that is very much like both the regional and potential CWS setup

Well considering the NC game is best of 3 then we can pitch them both on Friday and Saturday

Nick has never come out of the pen, and you'd want to use everyone we got.  Let him go 5 or 6 or until he struggles, but let Todd come in after that and close it out strong.  Hogfan is right though that isn't much of a possibility.

well the CWS is set up with off days.   Its possible Nick could throw twice in the CWS before the championship series on full rest, and the same thing with jess Todd.   

But lets figure out how to get there first

You must not understand. Todd has only been playing Division 1 baseball for one year.  He doesn't have the experience in big time games.  Nick does and he can control himself more than he's shown the last month.

Jess seems to get started a little faster to me so I think he would be better if we needed someone to come into a bad situation.  I would start Nick and go after Jess at the first hint of trouble past the second inning.

whats to not understand?!  Todd has pitched against some of the best offenses in the country and has dominated!  Big time games??  how bout relying on Todd to win his games so we dont get swept?  or him starting a Saturday game after Nick gets crushed and winning?  We have called on Todd to pull us out of the gutter over and over the last few weeks of the reg season and he has been great.  Nick and Jess are both great, but dont use that 'big game' excuse crap.

Nobody's gonna pitch 3 times in the CWS.  We need one more guy to step up if we are going to win it all.

I'm going with Nick by the way.  He needs more days between starts.

If somehow we had both Schmidt and Todd ready to go Nick gets the start, and I ask Todd to back him up. The reason I say that is because Todd came out of the bullpen this season, and if it's the last game of the season, guess what....I'm not holding a rested pitcher who has nasty stuff over a bullpen person who at times is iffy.

But you know, there's a bunch of games to get there, and honestly, i don't see both of them rested at that point in the CWS.
