    We would have trouble beating Saint Peters this year

    I don't think he would take the job, IF offered.

    Solution is clear. Cut losses with Talbot and let him go. Let Jace move up to interim hitting coach. CANNOT do any worse. Can only get better.

    17 Ks is beyond unacceptable. And Talbot was crying about the strikezone. You know what, that ump was pretty consistent on both sides. Make a freakin' adjustment and swing the dang bat if it's close!

    Please don't try to use logic, it doesn't fit the narrative perpetuated around here. There were 4 freshmen in the lineup against one of the best arms in the country, with an extremely liberal zone behind the plate. It sucked, not arguing that, but let's see where this team sits in conference. This is baseball, not football. Some should stop treating it as such.

    How are there 5 teams worse? This is insane that you could have a collection of hitters this bad. You could grab HS all district players and do just as good. Kudos to our pitching staff for doing your part.

    I could've sworn I saw Talbot yelling at Cantrelle when he was coming off of the field after striking out in the 7th or 8th inning. If that was the case, then we are in a lot more trouble than I thought.

    This is absolutely, definitely not football. There's a lot more hitting going on in football.

    It goes both ways. Players have to execute and coaches teach them how. Failures on execution = failures on the coaching staff.

    Cantrelle probably needs to sit for a game or two or at least move down in the order.. 3 for 30 is a tough way to start your collegiate career. Hope he can figure out college pitching soon.

    The players have been yelled at a lot since the season started. Most of the time out of public view

    Checking my scoring program:

    54 Swinging, 18 Looking..72 total. 267 AB equates to striking out 26% of the time.

    Not surprising. Talbot's system says the strikeout isn't as bad as historically thought, analytically speaking..

    Which I have said from day one is utter and complete nonsense.

    Hayden is going to be a great player for us. But he is not a 2 hole hitter right now, I don't care how well he "handles the bat".

    Put him in the 7-8 slot and let him see some fastballs. It is mind-numbing that these coaches can not see this.

    Another reason why the guys can't stand playing for JT.

    Really not fair to place the expectations on this young kid to hit in the 2 hole just because the team has nobody else to place there. Had he started out on fire and demonstrated he was ready, maybe. I agree that he should have been given more time towards the bottom of the line up to catch his feet and get a feel for D1 pitching, especially the pitching we have generally been facing early in this schedule. He got put on the pedestal way too early and he/we paying for it.

    The strikeout is devastating to an offense. It is a confidence and momentum killer. At the same time it gives the pitcher more confidence. Nothing can be accomplished offensively with a strikeout. I don't care what numbers say. JT is off his rocker if he truly believes the strikeout is not that bad.

    I've seen many times, players get ruined mentally from this exact situation. It's one thing to weather a guy, it's another thing to break him.

    Not saying that this will break Hayden, because I don't think that, but it's a slippery slope.

    Not sure about "breaking" him, but it has become quite obvious that will not "make him" in two hole. He is batting .100 and has 9 SO's on 30 AB's. That is just not working, at all.

    I have much more loyalty to Robe than Hud and Marlin. You are not wrong.
