I didnt see the game, but I have to believe that third baseman was at double play depth in the 9th, I would have highly considered bunting pankake in that situation. It however still amazes me that a kid who is a line drive, fly ball hitter, struggles with sacrifice flys.

I will just say this...if one guy can cost you a game, Joey did it tonight.
yes, Jack pitched garbage tonight and the rest of the offense didn't get timely hits...but when a guy commits an error that allows two runs to score, then chokes with the game on the line, it ain't good, especially when it is a guy who has been there before.

Maryland had no business winning that game, but they took advantage of our mistakes, something good teams do.

We should go out and throttle Campbell tomorrow....but can this team beat Maryland twice? I really don't know...if they play like they did tonight, no way.

Again, I don't want to put this whole loss on Joey, but his error (and it is his because it was not a throw he needed to make on the run) and his poor at bat in the last inning, really were glaring eye sores in an all around piss poor performance tonight.

It isn't giving up on the team.

They played like utter garbage tonight.
When you have the tying run on base in the 6th, 7th, 8th and 9th and you don't get it in, you ain't playing well.

When you give up two key runs on an error, you aren't playing well.

Yes, we had the nice throw from the outfield to keep Maryland from scoring, but think about it...we could only muster 3 runs against an average Maryland team.

Sometimes you have to say we played like shit and the other team capitalized on our poor performance. Maryland beat us....but when you strand 9 runners and commit 2 errors you aren't going to win many games at this point in the season.

The fact it was as close as it was shows Maryland ain't that good a team.

Give props to Widener for coming in and shutting Maryland out, but this was a team Carolina should have beaten pretty handily, but didn't.

We look like a team full of talented recruits who are being poorly coached. We will never be bad, but we probably won't be great for a long time either.

No, but if Wynkoop doesn't get shelled like he did, we are not chasing 4 runs early.

As bad as Wynkoop pitched, he still made the pitches to get out of the innings if not for the errors. The guys on this team that were supposed to provide leadership let us down last night. This team has as much talent as any we've had, but something has seemed to be missing the past couple of years. We see signs of them finally getting it together, then they relapse back into the same crap. I hope I'm wrong, but I see our season ending this week-end unless they get their heads in the game.
As a side note, does anyone have the official rule for balls hitting the yellow line at Carolina Stadium? I thought it was supposed to be a home run, but it seems like I can remember a couple of times that it wasn't called that way.

Considering all the flyouts last night, kinda ironic the one time we need one we get a ground ball.

Taylor Widener pitched great. Him going the distance gives us a lot of options the next two days. Probably only two not available are him and Montgomery.

I'm still at a lost as to why we didn't send schrock. Even if he is gunned down, our fastest runner is at 3rd and scores easily. If they don't throw, the double play is gone.

I have been thinking that same thing for several weeks now. It's definitely not a Tanner coached team any longer.

Who would you like to be our coach? At least give some examples. And no I'm not defending Holbrook right now. But since you are so adamit we need another coach, who would you hire? Monte lee?

The ball has to clear the yellow line. Agree with the Wynkoop thoughts. I don't think it's a matter of not having their heads in the game, there are just a lot of holes on this team. i.e no true leadoff guy, no power in the outfield, etc.

Agree we have good talent but it is far from as good as we've ever had. Right now we have 3 guys that are much above average in the field & at the plate. (Greiner, Martin, & Schrock when he's healthy). I could name you numerous teams with more talent going back to the Jeff Grantz, Hank Small, days. But that's just my opinion & you're certainly entitled to yours.

With all that, I'll go out on a serious limb & say we still win this regional. If this team gets rolling, there is enough talent to take them a long way & because other teams have similar holes. But overwhelming people from shear talent? No.

I'm not saying if we lose this regional, fire Holbrook but dang if the leash doesn't tighten up a little. I wonder about his ability to motivate. Never concerned about that when Ray was coach.

Agreed. Holbrook is another 4-5 years on the learning curve before we win anything significant. The downside is that we'll be chasing Florida, Vandy, LSU, Ole Miss, Miss St for a long while. Also his recruiting...is it getting better?

Blows my mind you don't run the runner at first to prevent the double play...a attempt from home to throw him out would be dicey a man on third...think you run Harrington in that position and double switch him and arendas putting arendas at 2nd...shrock could barely run before being hurt much less now ie: Vanderbilt game
