Re: Has anyone heard if Christian and Carson are trying out for baseball again?
The problem with this is the fact that Shon Carson and Ahmad Christian both are below average in the outfield - and while they may be able (may, being the key word) get their batting swing down to the same as every other outfielder we've got, it would be hard to find them time in the field or at the plate. They would be used as a pinch runner if they came out and somehow made the team.
Then you've got to think about it like that. The roster already has to be cut down to 35, that's hard enough when you've got 50~ players in the locker room right now that are pretty damn good ball players. You're going to keep 1 (or 2) guys on the pinch simply as pinch runners? Whose spot would they be taking? Remember last year when we kept both Shon Carson and Ahmad Christian on the team and we really could've used Hunter Privette?
I'm just saying that I doubt they come back, and even if they did, I doubt they make the team. I'm sure this opinion insults someone on this board but it's my opinion. They're good baseball players, but not SEC quality baseball players. They're not an everyday fielder, or hitter in the SEC. It's nice to having blazing speed on the bases (ex: Shon Carson at Clemson last season), but it's nicer to have the right guys on the team.
35 is a hard number to cut down to:
That would be my 35 man right there...
