Actually, that might not happen this year. Another form of it could be asked, however. And that would be this.
"How do you plan to use your two closers?"
Morgan, as has been so well-documented, is fully recovered from Tommy John surgery he had in the fall of 2009. Now he's back and ready to pitch again.
As Huber said not many days ago, "Jake and I feel we can take care of things from the seventh inning on in any game."
That's not only a comforting thing for the Rebel coaches and players to know, it's likely the honest truth. Impressive still is the fact that when the recent National Collegiate Baseball Writer's Association's list for National Stopper of the Year candidates, both were on it. And only two others from the SEC – Matty Ott of LSU and Matt Price of South Carolina – made the list.
Bianco will be asked about the new bats, where the power will come from for this team, who he projects at catcher, will Matt Snyder DH only, who are the leaders in the outfield and at shortstop, and so on and so forth.
Most of them you have asked, too, and some of them have been answered.
Bianco said this weekend that who pitches when is important to decide in the preseason.
"The same thing with the position players. But I think moreso on the mound. I think the other thing is to find the lineup. We'll start nine guys on Friday, but I doubt the same nine will start on Saturday. We'll try to play like we try do every year, a handful of different lineups and different options, and then what actual lineup they fall in. Hopefully as we go through the first four weeks we can figure all that out."
One aspect that hasn't been such a problem for the Rebels thus far has actually been getting outside for practice. As difficult as the winter has been, the Rebels have still been able to practice outdoors most days.
"It's been miserable, but it's been miserable everywhere," Bianco said. "Doesn't matter if you're in Dallas or Atlanta, it's just been miserable here in the South. It is what it is. We really have only been inside twice, amazingly. The kids have done a great job of working and keeping it in perspective. There've been days when it hasn't been real pleasant temperature-wise. But they've competed in the intrasquad games and have worked hard. The days we've worked inside, they've remained focused and we've gotten things done.
"I don't feel it's really played a role on where we are as far as the team anymore than any other year. I feel we'll be ready on Friday. Credit the players, because (the weather) can certainly be a distraction."
More to come from the annual preseason press conference later today.
