Katie Casey was baseball mad

Had the fever and had it bad.

Just to root for the home town crew,

Ev'ry sou* Katie blew.

On a Saturday, her young beau

Called to see if she'd like to go

To see a show but Miss Kate said,

"No, I'll tell you what you can do."

 

 

Take me out to the ball game,

Take me out with the crowd

Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jack,

I don't care if I never get back

Let me root, root, root for the home team,

If they don't win it's a shame

For it's one, two, three strikes, you're out

At the old ball game.

Really needed a sweep from that any series.  Seton Hall is not a good program.

I’ve never seen CJS this frustrated. Right after complementing the offense, they go and get out hit by a team we were meant to have as a mid season tune up series. Which I guess you can really pin on the pitching too.

 

Regardless, they need to start figuring some stuff out soon or else this could spiral downward real quick.

You think they’d let me park the trailer in the infield?

Should we be giving up 6+ runs to UTA and Seton Hall? Absolutely not. But our “championship level offense” has left a lot to be desired against those teams as well. Three runs and 12 LOB deserves an earful. Honestly, the # LOB this season has been pretty much as worrisome as our pitching.

It is completely reasonable to expect occasional hitting funks and occasional bad outings from pitchers, even on "championship level" teams. 

 

We have evidence this team can hit.  They've scored 6 or more runs in 21 of 35 games the season.  They've gotten double-digit hits in 20 games.  They are going though a funk. 

 

We have seen very little evidence that this team can pitch, outside of Lodolo (and maybe King and Perez).  There is no funk ... this is what the team has to work with.  And when a team can't pitch, it is going to lose games during hitting funks.

Darn, I wish it was the Frogs out here. Is there any chance it might be?

Sure.  I'd frankly be shocked if they sent Texas that far away from home, especially as a 2-seed.  I think they'd be far more likely to send a smaller fan base away if there weren't enough regionals in the southwest to host them all.

Also of note, BA has UTA in among the first 8 out of the tournament.  A little surprising, that.
