    Still a baseball man at heart. It's ridiculous, but years of guilt can't allow me to not believe in jinxes.

    We weren't a great hitting team last year, probably high average. Some of our best most consistent hitters have moved on. We're relying on organic improvement, and unproven Division one players to improve us for the most part.

    Pitching is not overrated, but for some here hitting is undervalued.

    We will destroy the baseball this year.

    I hope you're right, but fear you're wrong.

    Hopefully we're hitting closer to.320 than .275.

    Definitely have to improve but .320 would be off the charts with a schedule like ours. Only eight teams managed to do that last year. I'd be thrilled hitting anywhere close to .300

    Well .300 would be OK, it is within my goal of being closer to .320 than .275 by .05 lol.

    Being clutch is far more important than the numbers, with our pitching staff getting hits when we need it is the most important thing...not putting up gaudy numbers.

    I and others (Robe) are less concerned with BA than OB% and Slugging %. Sensley destroyed baseballs in Alaska with maple bats. Hoping the swing holes are now smaller and aluminum will respond, also. Not going too far out on the limb saying Handsome Monica (1.102 OPS last year) will destroy baseballs.

    Sensley hit .308 in 38 games overall, led the Alaska league in home runs (6) and slugging percentage (.531), and tied for first in extra base hits (16). He was second in the league in RBIs (27) and (OPS) on-base-slugging percentage (.915). He also stole seven bases.

    Last year we had one player with OPS % over .900, Kyle Clement. OB% + SLG % = OPS. If those two can hit over .900 OPS in the middle of the order, spring and summer could be very sweet.

    Clutch hitting usually goes with gaudy numbers more so that mediocre numbers. Kid from SLU had gaudy numbers and was clutch, so was the Little Rock kid.

    Frankly how clutch can you be when you don't know in the runs. We did not do that in a lot of games last two seasons.

    You can crush bad pitching midweek and Sunday's to jack up your numbers...I don't care if the team hits .280...can you score on Friday night in a 1-1 game in the 8th with a man standing on 2nd. Gaudy numbers don't mean clutch...a single player who has gaudy numbers is more than likely clutch. Can you get the bunt down when you absolutely have to. The team needs to be clutch if we want to get where we wanna go.
