Am I the only one not freaking out about this? Yeah, it's not a good look and I'm not happy about it, but we're also missing four of our nine starters.

We've lost what...5 of our last 7 games?

This is a pretty horrific slump we are in right now. I don't see how it can get any worse.

I don't think they've put the Florida series behind them yet. Better do it soon or they'll be coming back from Auburn with brooms in their rears. Playing pathetic right now.

I hate to give the injury excuse but no one in the country has it as bad as we do. Our only threats at the plate tonight were Kyle Martin and an injured Greiner. The rest are either defensive guys or bench players.

This...We have had stretches like this every year. I expect to lose to CSU, Furman, or Citadel every year. It is a marathon...not a sprint.

I'm trying to weigh this with the loss at Francis Marion. both feel about the same, but it feels worse after two weekend series losses

The sky isn't falling.

It was a midweek game with a lot of starters not playing.

We don't want to lose games, but want to peak at the right time. Ray and as a result Chad have learned that from experience...see our awesome winning streak and domination in the regular season only to not make it to Omaha back in 2000ish. It's good to know what kinks need to be worked out at this point in the season as opposed to late in the year.

Do you realize the only thing this team is missing is a clutch hit, here or there? Thats the only thing standing between South Carolina and being at the top of the East. Gotta work on plate discipline and situational hitting.

No, we need better hitters so the games aren't always so close in the first place. We need A LOT better hitting that we've been getting this year.

Long season, there will be peaks & valleys. Agree that there isn't any reason to panic & I haven't, nor will I. But the idea that there are just some kinks to work out is understating some real issues with this team. It's clear that Holbrook is willing to sacrifice offense for defense which is personal preference & I have no problem with it to an extent. But damn, this team won back-to-back National Championships. There is no reason on earth why he shouldn't be able to bring in position players who can hit & play defense. Holbrook just mentioned that the Charleston Southern CF has struck out 3 times in 161 at-bats. After going 3-5 tonight 3 times in 166 at-bats. That is simply incredible.

Not freaking out. Baseball is a game of streaks.

What does bother me is when we fail at "The Fundamentals".

Get'em On. Get'em Over. Get'em In. We have struggled with this the last several weeks and it has come back to bite us.

This "Bad Streak" will pass. The season is not lost.

The way I see it, any player on this team put in the lineup, starter or not should be able to whip a team like CSU easily.

Not freaking out, but this was a bad loss anyway you slice it.
Forget we had four starters out...our backups are better than the guys at CSU.

I've heard of slumps, but this is ridiculous.
Hopefully the team bounces back against the Citadel and get some momentum before hitting the road to Auburn
