Default kingston seems to have the ability to make the right

moves at the right time. great example is putting cullen in at first as a substitute. his long stretch made it possible to snag that bounce and prevent a run and a possible long inning.

No way Holbrook makes that move. The guy seems to have a sixth sense about what to do with in game adjustments. Very impressed.

I think needing to juggle the match-ups due to injuries early in the season made him more comfortable doing that right now.

High comedy this morning on Upstate Radio rationalizing how Clempson still had a better season than SC.

I think that Cullen was in the line up because they started a left hander. Cullen was adequate, but he was out of position on Row's throw that went as an error and allowed a run. So, he "broke even" with the long stretch.

AS for the Upstate clemsux radio station, that is usually humorous. They are so orange that Nehi could use them in commercials. I didn't hear them, but the only claim they have is they won more games. But, we are a much better team than we were when we had all those injuries. That is why we are in the Super regionals; so they can just shut up and enjoy watching us play.

Nah, that throw from Row was horrible. Cullen was on first as he should have been in order to receive a good throw. Row also tried to do too much with that reverse pivot and throw back to second.

I am sure they are still trying to understand how Kingston has more Regional wins at SC than Lee does at Clemson.

Default Re: kingston seems to have the ability to make the right

Look, Kingston obviously knows baseball, but this article is stupid. To say Kingston made the right calls at the right time by referencing Cullen and Campbell being added to the lineup is kind of silly. They did nothing at the plate, and were put into the lineup for the offensive matchup. Now, if the article said Kingston added Cullen to the lineup because he needed a better defensive first baseman, then fine. However, even Kingston said he added Cullen and Campbell to the lineup for offensive purposes, and not defensive. Also, was putting in Graham Lawson the right decision at the right time? No.

By the way, I am NOT saying these were the wrong decisions. I'm just saying it's kind of a stupid thing to reference by Whittle (who wrote the article). Just a dumb article to get fans to cream their pants about our coach (who I think is a very good coach). In fact, I think this article is just the right article at the wrong time.

Ok, everybody come yell at me now for saying a positive article was dumb.

I think Kingston has done a great job thus far. He has the team in the Super Regionals and are hanging tough against a very good Ark team at home. Kudos to coach. Not sure about the moves comment but we won so the default view has to be positive.

Need to eat more Q tonight.

This staff's player development is on a different level. Don't understand the prior staff not being able to get half as much out of the players. We faltered at the end the season then, but we are improving by huge margins late this year.

I am thankful to Ray Tanner and his staff for vetting the right guy to get us here (and maybe THERE!). It is so exciting to see us rise up!

Well, for one, this staff has actually worked to FIX the problems the guys were having, as opposed to making excuses. They have actually COACHED.

If we beat UA in the rubber game tonight then we head to the CWS as the hottest team in America. Nobody would have gotten to the CWS through a tougher matchup - on the road. We would have a great shot at winning the whole thing.

I don't think this is any knock against Holbrook, at least it shouldn't be. One of the things that made Tanner a legend was his ability to make a move and it seemed to always work. For me, Kingston made that type if move when Blair came in and hit the 3 run bomb while batting .185. He then got hot and had a great regional and helped get us through Greenville.

I don't know about the pitching match up, but Williams hasn't contributed any at the plate so the Cullen substitution wasn't difficult.
