    I moved this from the Air Force thread since itís more relevant here. If I was deciding things based on what Iíve seen and know from last year this would be the team Iíd go withÖ

    1 McLeod SS
    2 Myers LF
    3 Davis 2nd or 1st
    4 Evans 1st or 2nd
    5 Burchfield DH
    6 Bates 3rd
    7 Corona C / Slaughter
    8 Hogart RF / Matulia as a backup
    9 Drost CF / Matulia as a backup

    Beyond that Iím telling the team to start off looking to swing at first pitch fastballs until Charlotte figures it out. Weíre looking at too many early strikes and getting behind in the count and then swinging at their get out pitches.
    Pitching wise, quit with the getting ahead in the count and then trying to nibble at the edges. Letís attack the strike zone like Fincher did against AF. Pitching defensively like we tend to do is a recipe for failure.

    On the game yesterday. Our biggest problem was not hitting what was thrown regardless of whether WE thought it was a strike. Ump established His strike zone early and we refused to swing. Right handed batters did go with the pitch and hit a couple into right and right center. Our entire lineup has to learn to hit it where it’s thrown.

    It will be interesting to see how many times they change the Sunday game time this year. Yes, I understand things change due to flight issues. So far we've had two changes in three Sunday games.

    I have no major complaints about the lineup for tonight. Provided that Drost starts hitting the ball.

    The batting woes for Drost 0-8 & 0 RBI and Matulia 0-19 & 0 RBI continue. Somebody needs to de-funk their lockers.

    Okay, that solidifies my position. Drost not hitting makes him a total liability on O and D.

    LB trying to force his offensive desires into the lineup. He needs to think like a coach instead of "see I was right" kind of guy.

    Glad Fincher showed up in his last few innings. It's all about pitching.

    Dave said last night that both guys with the mysterious "illness" would be available today. This after LB said they would be out through the weekend.

    Good win last night!

    Does Hector have some pictures of LB? No way that guy should be a weekend starter right now.

    This team has zero leadership from the head coach down.

    22 hits allowed. That’s BP level pitching.
