I don't really ever remember our teams being fantastic hitters (since they changed the standard for aluminum bats). Instead, we've usually been able to string timely hits together and plate a couple runs while leaning on our pitching.

This is just flat out frustrating though. To give up ONE run and lose is probably the most frustrating way to lose a game because pitching was great, fielding was great, but watching the struggles at the plate made me want to hit my head against the table.

Our pitching staff deserves better than this. I've always believed pitching/fielding was the most important part of the game because if the opponent doesn't score, then they can't win (ex: last night). However, we have to develop these kids into better hitters. It's like the entire team has been in a season-long slump. I'm sure confidence is low and frustrations are high right now, but something has got to give. We can still technically win this series, but if we don't then I'm not sure where we turn.

I don't know what to try anymore. Jewelry combinations aren't working. Watching/listening isn't working. Not watching/listening isn't working. Clothing combos not working. UGH! I'm just at a loss.

And yes, I'm not at all happy with what I'm seeing on the field. There is NO fire anywhere from anyone.

Maybe Chad should get himself tossed tonight. Do something. We just look bored and like we are going through the motions. Except for the starting pitching.

That did nothing for us the last time he got tossed.

I've been waiting for over two years for our coaches to develop Destino. He continues to either strike out or hit ground balls. In not correcting his swing in almost 3 years, this falls squarely on our coaching staff. He tops the ball almost every time he makes contact.

Outside starting pitching, can you name any other players that would start for UF? Tyler Johnson and Carlos Cortes. That's it.

That's the biggest problem with our program.

I think the times he's done this recently it was mostly to appease fans. It hasn't seemed to benefit or motivate the team whatsoever.

Crowe works around an error to the leadoff hitter...... no score headed to the 2nd.


2nd Inning: USC up 2-0

USC draws a leadoff walk...... amazing

Matt Williams - bunts 2 foul...... BS call saying they went when he obviously didnt, K, 1 away

Hunter Taylor - 3-0 count...... 3-1..... foul, full count..... fouled back..... single into LF, 1st and 2nd with 1 out

Not sure the hitter - slower grounder to SS, only play at 1st, runners to 2nd and 3rd, 2 away

Tolbert - 0-2 count.... 1-2.... 2-2..... K, 3 away


We are letting this guy off the hook................
