The most aggravating thing about this team..

The hitting philosophy absolutely STINKS!! Watching strike 3 to end the game. I'm here at the game and it made it even more apparent watching BC batters battle and battle and battle with two strikes fouling off good pitches,, bad pitches,, anything remotely close to being a strike. We watch beautiful pitches go by with two strikes and swing at trash with hitters counts... It's unbelievable. We will see how stubborn or good of a coach Monte is this off season in whether or not he cedes the hitting coach responsibility to a new hire. He should take a lesson or two from Dabo on how to manage a team as the CEO.

Totally agree. Just lost to #12 seed who hadn't won a tournament game in 9 years. And Monte starts Marr? Besides that, fielding is bad. Can't hit with RISP. Byrd 0-6 with 3 Ks. After Spiers, bullpen is awful. I hope next year is Monte's last.

A bunch of the guys seem to like the high ball, and let ones right down the middle go by, tough to watch sometimes.


That's Byrd's specialty.

Swings at balls in his eyes.


Unless he becomes a much more disciplined hitter...

and a much more consistent hitter, the next phase of his playing career will be short lived.

Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.


This teams entire approach to hitting is bad...

and it seems to get worse with runners on base.

As you pointed, they routinely watch good pitches go by, get behind in the count, and then offer at the garbage. Even when there is a hitters count, they're still offering at lousy pitches.

It is incredibly frustrating to watch.
