What a time to be alive!

Several years ago, tnet wanted Jack HOF fired, and tnet be like "the game has passed Jack HOF by, we can't win playing small ball. This type of strategery is antiquated and it makes us lose!"

After losing to the coots this year tnet be like "Monte needs to play small ball instead of sending in the 'hit a homerun sign' with every batter, we can't win playing non small ball. This type of strategery is ludicrous and makes us lose!"

After beating the tarholes tnet be like "we good, might as well book our reservations in Omaha because Monte's strategery makes us win!"

Very well laid out! I think Monte has the right strategy- get good athleticism and guys that love to play baseball and win with each strategy when appropriate.

Someone BengalBilly I believe said that stats over the years have bourne out that it’s better to swing away instead of bunt men over...

Anyway, good post!!!!

+1 for multiple uses of strategery.

Go home runs!

Bunts suck!

Not everybody. It’s baseball. You can’t overreact to everything good or bad.
It is true that we need to be able to handle the bat like small ball teams while hitting bombs as well. Do u know why we scored so many runs game 2? We weren’t trying to bomb everything. We went with the pitch. I bet half of our hits were to the opposite field. We need a bit of both jack and Monte’s style


Because UNC only pitched fastballs? ***

Line drive singles and doubles don't become small ball just because they are to the opposite field.

I'm not, nor have I ever been, anti-Jack and he was an amazing coach at Clemson.

However, let's not pretend that it was Jack's style and not Monte's to score 17 runs with only 1 home run.

Let's also not pretend like Monte told the team after the game, "scoring 17 was nice but let's change our approach again so we can hit more home runs but score less runs and strike out more tomorrow".

For clarification I shouldn’t have said we need small ball. I agree with what you said. What we need is to handle the bat batter and strike out less which leads to productive outs as well. We don’t need to be too small ball oriented or too power oriented. We need a middle ground there and we found it Saturday

I like the, do what ever is necessary to win method the best, and it don't matter if it's small or big ball, just hit and catch the ball, put guys on base and move them around, or just crush it and slow trot around the bases, it don't matter if they just win, and just call it play to win ball!!!

We say all kinds of chit if we're not winning. Win, and the complaints are almost non existent for most. But we do have some that will complain about how we won, but for most, it doesn't matter as long as we are winning!!!

Well the bottom line is winning in the postseason, right? So the last 2 seasons we came out on fire , spent time in the top 10. Those 2 seasons we pretty much played cup cakes early and beat them . Then when the good teams came up we went cold . So that gave us all really not much hope even in home regionals. The past 2 years we went into the postseason playing poorly with experienced players.
I think this young team is hungry and beating UNC which will probably go to the CWS was huge.
Plus we have a lot of depth which will keep players focused. Right now we have 3-4 players hot at the same time and we will need them to stay steady.
This is how teams win in the postseason with multiple players hot not just 1 or maybe 2.


I don't completely disagree with you

but last year we did go 22-8 in ACC play. In 3 years Monte has won an ACC championship in 2016 and last year Clemson won the Atlantic.

I just found it ironic that people were missing small ball when that's all they complained about with Jack HOF.

Monte teaches power, most people don't actually know what that means. Small ball can be used affectively with speed and timing. Each game is different and each team is different. I would like to know what people think teaching kids power actually is. I'll hang up and listen and come back later to tell y'all what it means.

What people want to see more of is spreading the ball around , moving batters over with outs.
Getting that fly ball with runners on 3rd. This is not small ball it’s good baseball.
Jack would bunt over runners early in games that usually killed likely big innings.
For us to make a run or even go to the CWS and win it. We must start hitting better, which we have.
