    Lots of hitters that look scared at the plate. Confidence level looks non-existent.

    Might be time to clear the benches. Give these guys a chance to reset and clear their heads. They CAN hit they just need to believe they can hit.

    With a few exceptions, could they have less success?

    Does Mike Trahan recruit well? Because I'm not seeing his value as a hitting coach.

    This team is frustrating....to us fans...but even more to the players and the coaching staff. They know they are better than this. Keep the faith fellas.

    How can we deduce that we have good hitters, but they're "just slumping"? History shows that good hitting for our club is the exception, not the rule.

    Very frustrating.

    Look guys,their guy was good on the bump. He threw strike 1 alot. Idk if he just had a he'll of a night or he's really that good, but for 9 innings tonight he was great. As was Hubbell. He made their guys look pretty silly and was able to work out of some tight cracks. But there is something lacking on this team. It showed itself early in the year, then was hidden when we played mediocre talent. Now the pink elephant is definately in the room. Idk how to fix it, but something needs to resolve itself quickly. It's the same issue for the past 2 or 3 years.

    Not a good outcome to say the least, but a night at the Tigue in good weather sure trumps a lot of other Fridays. Geaux Cajuns!

    A couple of comments on your post... As I understand it, their guy is pretty good and WAS throwing a lot of strikes.... So our response?? Sit there and look at them??? Someone said no confidence... That seems accurate.. It looks like we are begging for walks....

    Hubbel was indeed making them look silly.... The only difference in looking silly and what we are doing is that they were swinging... and thus often looked silly....

    Finally how many strike 3's must we look at before a decision is made to have them sit for a few games?

    In golf, it is a truism that you will NEVER make a put that you leave short.... similarly, you will almost NEVER hit a ball that you don't swing at...

    Coach seems to pull the trigger too early on our pitchers... Hubell was pitching great and coach pulled him for no reason.. other than the fact that he was at his max pitch count, which I think is ridiculous... If the guy is pitching consistently.... keep him in.. when you take a pitcher out, inevitably, the other team capitalizes on this.. It happens ALL the time..!..........

    I think Coach Robe knows more about pitching management than most of us combined. The reason we lost this game was not about ULM capitalizing on the pitching change. It was about us not swinging the bat with any kind of confidence whatsoever, and not capitalizing on the opportunities we did have to manufacture some runs.

    Ride him till he falls apart! Just kidding. He was over his pitch count and gave up a lead off double. I'm
    Ok with him being pulled. We have the best bullpen in the belt.

    Guess we aren't out of our hitting funk...

    Nope...we're back to hitting like a "bad 5 year old T-ball team". We shouldn't be surprised, though. This is what we are known for.

    Scouting report: they can pitch...play pretty good defense...oh,yeah, and they stand at the plate a lot and don't swing. Will make our pitching look great.

    I would have preferred a WIN in the cold and rain.

    Our lack of hitting at this point is not a "slump", it's a "trend". It hasn't been one or two games, it's been since day one (except against really weak teams with poor pitching). We continue to make average pitchers look like great pitchers. If it were my decision, for the game today I'd change out the entire team. Let all of the so-called backups have a chance. We've got to do something to really shake things up or this "trend" is what the rest of our season will look like.

    I agree. The only thing, though, is that our back-ups...when used...aren't hitting either.

    This is every year.
