    I very much respect that Owensboro program, coaches, and players. They will be a very good team this year. They were last year too. Ohio County would not be the favorite against them. As I said, I think Ohio County is young and unproven as a team. Owensboro would be worthy of anyone's ace. I look forward to watching these teams compete....many friends on both sides of that one and throughout the region. I think it's wide open as to who...

    Blaine pitched in the Regional semifinal as a 7th grader....and held powerhouse Apollo scoreless for 4 innings....This will be his 6th varsity season. No high school state titles....best Ohio Co have done is final 8. They lost to Campbell Co in Lexington in 2016....with Blaine on the mound 5-2 I think. Campbell Co went on to lose in the championship 1-0 against St. X. I'm sure his main goal is to get another chance in Lexington before moving...

    Pressure? From what....a fan forum. Blaine knows better than to pay attention to us....haha. Of course teams will be at their best against him.....I hope so. You see....it's called competition, and that's how you get better. I expect that everybody is gonna be working hard to be as competitive as possible. Every team and individual player always have plenty of room for improvement. Blaine is no different than any other....work, improve,...

    The state titles were in Babe Ruth with Owensboro/Daviess Co. In HS, Ohio Co is yet to get one...that would be great, but unlikely. I don't have to build him up, but I do think his many accomplishments and talent are noteworthy. Last year Ohio Co was 15-17,....Blaine played but didn't pitch because of elbow injury and TJ surgery. If he had pitched, you would see a vastly different record. This year they are very young....lot of work to do...

    I am sure you do! But when you have won 3 State Titles, All-District, All-Region, Regional Tournament MVP, PG All-American, and All-Tournament selection At PG Nationals, Team USA, PG World Championship, etc.....you start to think that maybe there is more to it than luck...LOTS of work ethic, great teammates and coaching, and mental toughness. All he does is love the game and do everything he can to get better and do the best he can to follow...

    Hey Eagle3....ask DC about Blaine's mental toughness. Complete game win in a regional semi-final.....pretty good and rare given OC history. Leading your team to the State Tournament as a Sophomore is fairly rare.....or have you seen that before too. You haven't. Work ethic....after TJ surgery, did he play for his team while he was injured or not? Sure did....didn't have to but he did. Like I said, loves his team and is a competitor. Work...

    The change-up has been added and it's developing fast. He used it in Jupiter a few times. You say you have seen it many times. No you haven't. But I have. After one outing LSU coach was talking to Brad Wilkerson....flat out stated he saw a few things out of Blaine's pitches that you can't teach. Blaine's college choice is very specific to his future path.....very specific. You wouldn't understand so don't worry yourself with such details....

    Ok. A few points. I'm not his father. I like your analysis to some degree except you obviously don't understand pitching or work ethic. Blaine has worked his tail off since he was 7 yes old. He set the bar. Do you think it's easy to play all spring, summer, and fall....with travel and practice. You want FACTS.....look at the stats and the radar gun. BTW....there might be 5 kids in the country that can throw 90+ for 3+ innings. If he...

    Did you see that he was up to 88 on Oct 19 in Jupiter? Did you see the scout notes on him or watch him manhandle Canes National....one of the best in the country? PBR is great, but on that day, it was cold and indoors. With very little warmup time, it was decided to not go 100% and risk reinjury. Still on the comeback and not yet 100%....healthy but not 100%. It was just the situation....again, I think PBR is awesome, but they didn't see...

    Gilliam? It's Gillim. Done that average left-handed fastball research yet? Given your post, I'm gonna have to conclude that you have no idea what a good off-speed pitch even looks like. Describe one. Would you have any clue as to how to develop a pitch or what are the many grips that are possible for each pitch? Do you have any....any clue on when might be a good time to throw any pitch? What are the variables that need to be considered?...

    Not my son, but at any rate, I enjoy the debate....especially from someone like Eagle3 who obviously needs a little education in baseball. I'm happy to give it....for free

    Haha. I can see that you haven't done your homework. Average fastball at the high school level for a left-hander? Impressive stats...you got that one correct. His stats are awesome...in spite of TJ (that's Tommy John in case you don't know---and I doubt you do). What's the average recovery time for TJ for a high school pitcher? I know, because Dr. Kremchek told me. Nothing wrong with mid-major D-1....great schools....although you seem to...

    I am never hostile, but I love a good debate about pitching. When it come to Blaine, there is no debate. Great kid who loves the game and is very talented with a bright future. Now that he is healthy, I'm certain of his outcome. Spring will be here soon, and I am looking forward to a trip back to Lexington.

    What was the velocity in Jupiter? Up to 88....how many runs and hits did he allow? 0 runs, 2 hits. All Tournament. At the PBR Showcase, he was taking it easy based on the conditions ......You might know that after TJ surgery....nevermind, you don't know. His stats and success are proven....over and over. See ya at the yard.

    Up to 88 at the World Championships in Jupiter. Pitched against Canes National and a team from Puerto Rico. 0 earned runs, 6Ks, 5 innings. Aside from velocity, Blaine knows how to pitch. Aside from that, he is barely a year off of Tommy John. I guarantee he will be 90+ next spring. I don't expect him to sit at 90+ next spring. If you know anything about pitching or Tommy John for young pitchers, then you know that his numbers are...
