I still think we can be ok, if we can win these next 2 and go from there.
Heck, I am more worried right now about nuclear war and our leaders.

We aren't winning the next two. We can't hit.

Hope is starting to fail for this team big time....I feel like I'm watching a little league team still learning to hit the ball...haven't seen them like this in a long long time.

This is depressing. What a waste of solid pitching this year.

And yet Brandon McIlwain couldn't break this starting lineup? Either a bunch of MLB scouts are wrong about him or Chad and staff was wrong about him? Hmmmmmm.

Unless your name is Bo Jackson, you are not going to break into an SEC starting lineup when you aren't giving 100% of your time to baseball. Also, he played in the OF, which has not been a problem area. Hop, Danny, Olsen, and Cortes are better than he.

Agreed, but we are still trotting Destino out to Left and trotting is about as fast as he gets running down a fly ball.

If you notice, I didn't mention Destino as OF, regardless of what the staff keeps doing. I shook my head last night when they listed Cortes at DH and Destino in LF. WTH???

Greiner and Martin left much better hitters than they were when they arrived. I assume you are specifically talking about hitting. Connor Bright from FR to JR showed huge improvement but injuries and other things hurt his SR season. Hunter Tayor, Matt Williams and LT Tolbert have also developed.

I am frustrated as well, but to say no players have not developed is simply not true. We have players not executing in key situations. That is my biggest issue. It is happening at the plate, but a bigger issue I have is defense. Our outfield is poor defensively. A lot of balls have dropped, including one big one last night that we get to in the past. How many times have you seen a third base coach hold a runner from second on a single to the outfield and how many close plays at the plate have you seen. Our infield is not as good as in years past either. That is something I have a big problem with, our fundamentals and baseball iq are low. Not sure if that is a coaching issue or a recruiting issue, but it is something we have to fix. The 2 hits that scored the game winning run last night are outs with Marzilli in LF and a Mooney at SS.

I agree, I know if TJ is healthy and Blair had been in LF he gets to that double. Cortez likely does as well.

Bless Hop's heart. He's been playing through that nagging injury since the start of Spring practice. Doing his damnedest to give it his all.

Biggest problem with his injury is he is going to run as hard as he can on everything he hits and that is the worst thing for that type injury. He definitely has plenty of heart as was definitely not why I said we had a poor defensive outfield above, you already pointed out the reason for that.

Oh yes. Every time he runs I'm thinking "please let that muscle hang in there".

Never thought at all that was what you meant. Just making a comment about Hop. Lingering injuries like that are the worst.

The only solid overall player I have seen this year in the Outfield is Olsen. Hopkins would be there to but he has been plagued all year with injuries. Blair can't hit. Neither can Destino. We haven't seen enough of Cortes yet to make a determination on how "good" he will be. He has looked impressive so far, but we have seen this happen many times. ie John Jones and Matt Williams. Tolberts average is free falling as well.

Greiner and Martin were Tanner's boys. Both could hit and pull balls well, but could not hit oppo.
