Default Inconsistent offense could lead to changes in Gamecocks’ lineup

With South Carolina’s offense continuing to be inconsistent, a couple of players who were supposed to be key contributors could be replaced in the starting lineup.

Shortstop Madison Stokes’ batting average has dropped to .211, the lowest on the team. First baseman Matt Williams has gone from hitting more than .400 early this season to batting .270 entering this weekend’s series against Mississippi State.

Default Re: Inconsistent offense could lead to changes in Gamecocks’ lineup

lets face it..when the gamecocks face stiff competition they have a hard time. Destino strikes out at a high percentage with runners in scoring position or when we have to have a 2 out hit..For all the talk coming in i thought he was a beast. Its now been 2.5 years..

Obviously we arent getting much production from the others named in the article. Its brutal watching us hit in big time situations.

We are bad fundamentally..Other teams seem to have no problem sacfrifice bunting or making routine defensive plays.

Who would have thought the loss of one relief pitcher could hurt so bad..The bottom line is that this team is talented enough on paper to win consistently but something is going on that nobody can really put a finger on.

That all stems from the top down. That is why we are seeing this article..moves need to be made. Lets see where we are in a month.

And yet MLB projected first round draft prospect Brandon McIlwain couldn't crack this starting line up. Weird.

So what does that say about our team that we allegedly have 4 better outfielders than a first round MLB prospect and yet are struggling?

That the first round draft pick isn't that good at this point?

That the scouts were wrong.
Hop, Olsen, Danny and Cortes are just better than him. I know no one wants to admit it, but it's the truth.

That's a little dramatic. Have you watched Florida State this year?

Honestly, there are a lot of teams that were hyped in the preseason that simply haven't lived up to their billing. Heck, in the SEC alone there are at least 3 or 4.


D1baseball Preseason Rankings

2 - Florida (11 losses, currently down 10 spots to 12th)

3- FSU (14 losses, currently unranked)

4- USC (11 losses, currently down 10 spots to 14th)

5- LSU (11 losses, currently down 4 spots to 9th)

6- NC State (15 losses, currently unranked)

7- Vandy (13 losses, currently unranked)

10- ECU (15 losses, currently unranked)

11- Coastal Carolina (12 losses, currently unranked)


In fact, TCU is about the only team that they have been pretty accurate on so far.

USC is definitely not alone in underachieving this season, no matter how mad we get at our poor performances.

Default Re: Inconsistent offense could lead to changes in Gamecocks’ lineup

If guys are not producing we need to give others a chance. I suggested a few weeks ago to give Row a shot at 2b and move Tolbert to SS. This was done for one game only. I also suggested having Cortes in the lineup every day. This has happened and with very good results. I also suggested Destino be benched for at least a few games. This has not happened but should. I like Williams but he is in a severe slump. I suggest he also be taken out of the lineup for a few games and see if this helps.

Last season I suggested John Jones be taken out of the lineup as he was in a severe slump but was told by some he should be left in the lineup and he would work himself out of the slump. Sadly he never came out of his slump.

Bottom line: We have some players who are not producing. At least give someone else a chance to see if they can do better. If not, go back to the benched players and hope the bench time has helped them to be better producers.

This team was a preseason Top 5 team. Changes need to be made by coaches, players or both.
