his total innings pitched was top 5 in the country, which should only be expected because of how deep LSU went in the postseason.
if anyone on our staff was overworked, it was Coleman.
guy would get a save on Friday, and then throw a CG on Sunday.
we even used him on 2 days rest in Omaha.
He really struggled with his 1st start in Omaha.
his next start was vintage Ranaudo, as he dominated Arkansas.
he also pitched well against Texas in the finals.
I'm not sure which start I saw, but there was a universal assessment that he didn't look as good as he had in the past, and many viewers were questioning why. Many scouting services were attributing it to fatigue. Nothing to get upset about really. I think he's going to be the number 2 or 3 pick this summer (barring significant injury), I just hope to see him pitch at his best sometime this year, because the start I saw was underwhelming which quite obviously was an outlier. Unfortunately it's not easy to catch college baseball, especially in my neck of the woods.
