Less than 2-1/2 weeks to go.
Oh yeah, from this at D1, looks like they are picking us to finish 9th in the ACC. I know this was posted before, but not the ninth aspect I don't think. I don't see this but then again everyone has an opinion...
We didn't place an emphasis on pitching and defense last year? Hall said we did emphasize last year but this year we really need to. get better. No ****. What's different other than realizing to make regionals we have to get better on pitching and defense. Caveman baseball won't get us to...
I didn't specify players or coaches in any phase, it obviously a combination of both :cool:. Looking back since 2006, we know the common denominator and the traditional weaknesses and strengths of our teams. Over a 15+ year period, you can isolate out the players as the cause.
Very fair writeup. Boom ".... but if it all comes together then this team definitely has the potential to win its first regional since 2006." :rolleyes:
Pitching, catching, defense, base running and hitting are my concerns (in that order) :)
When I agree with you in any sport, I just stop following. I'm hoping that DBo and Ramsey are enough to overcome Hall. GT baseball is different than football or basketball. In baseball, we get the high recruiting classes which don't develop to win in post season. That's why I likes Johnson...
If you haven't noticed, I'm sometimes a glass half empty and evaporating type of guy.
But it is fair to also point out that the first two years were abnormal from development due to COVID. So there is hope (although evaporating).
Glad to see it!
I guess it's good for the players long term that DBo is tweaking their mechanics. But bad for short term while adjustments are being made.
Sort of comes down to doing right by the players or short terms win / losses. I wish we could have both!
What you are saying about changing a few pitchers mechanics makes sense. But we had 22 pitchers on roster last year.
I think the area for DBo growth is in two main areas from interviews and this board. First learning how to coach college kids and second pitch calling in college.
