    Why are we hiring a pitching coach?

    Believe he is taking Harvells Volunteer asst spot.

    But maybe we added another paid member to the staff.

    Perhaps it was agreed upon during recent contract negotiations.

    I wonder if he donated part of his salary? If so, it would answer a question I had.

    Glad to see we're keeping the Texarkana pipeline alive.

    Didn't they cancel the baseball program a few seasons back? I believe this is how we got Caleb Adams in the first place.

    That is correct. I wasnt specifically talking about getting players from the JC though. We'll still have someone with ties to the area in general. Milhorn is a guy from that area but didnt play for the JC

    I hear you. It also good to have ties in the Monroe area as well with him and now Sim coaching there.

    It seems we have a great relationship with Barbe and we are getting alot of their good players that do not get drafted, it will be nice to have that relationship with West Monroe as well.

    There is decent baseball played up there.

    Freeman has helped the Cajuns pitching staff post three of the four lowest ERA's in program history since head coach Tony Robichaux took the helm in 1995.

    Those numbers speak for themselves.

    Those three seasons sprout the question; Why is this year so different?

    Good coach, not a miracle worker. Deficit of natural ability, i.e. talent. The well has run dry.

    His bio says he helps with recruiting.

    Would his focus be pitchers, or does he contribute across the board?

    I believe as an unpaid assistant he is limited to on-campus activities only, emails, snail mail, texts and phone calls, likely pitchers only, but just guessing. I'm not ready to lay the blame for this pitching staff at the feet of a volunteer coach. That would mean the paid staff are rubber-stamping his recruiting picks. I think it goes higher.

    If I were him, I'd take the recruiting stuff off his bio.....

    Evidently he isn't allowed to recruit off campus, but can he scout?

    Like everything else now, so much of recruiting process is done online. There is video and detailed scouting reports of every player that wants to be recruited. I am sure he can scout. A lot depends on direction he gets from above.
