    Folks, it is time to face reality.

    We need a new baseball coach.

    That's silly. Sim didn't make the two pitches that cost us tonight. Have you even followed the team this year. We don't have pitching Richard. Sim didn't play SS tonight either.

    I don't think anybody would do well after losing 7 scholarship arms out of the 9 we had coming out of fall. Or thereabouts.

    Only two of the pitchers from the fall are still pitching. That's a serious blow. It's a wonder we've won as much as we have.

    It is in fact time to face reaity, and the reality is that Brad is in fact the coach we need, because he can obviously do so much better when put in this situation. I hate stupid people.

    No, but he is the coach and the buck stops with him.

    Year after year, the only thing we are left with are excuses.

    This song and dance is getting old.

    If you are happy with mediocrity, that is your perogative. But I am not happy with it.

    Sim needs to start winning... Seems like a good guy but in coaching results are what really matters

    Re: Folks, it is time to face reality.

    I'm not advocating getting rid of Coach Sim.

    But I do find it very annoying that we seem to keep having pitching meltdowns every season. I don't know what is causing it, but the problem does need to be addressed. It seems like we've had a young staff for a few years now, which shouldn't really happen, right? Doesn't it seem like we have a lot more injuries at that one position than most teams?

    Like I said, I don't know what's going on. I'm by no means a baseball expert, or even knowledgeable. I just know what I see, and what I see does concern me.

    If you're gonna bash coaches on here, then please don't call them all the time and try to be buddy-buddy with them to their face. I'm just saying.

    Stupid is repeating the same mistakes, or in this case, repeating the same decisions.

    Maybe I would do better. Maybe I wouldn't. But we will never find out.

    We do know, however, what the current coach has done during his tenure: 202-242-1 (.454) over eight years, only three winning seasons and zero postseason appearances. His WAC record is even more underwhelming at 85-131 (.377), with only two seasons above .500.

    The numbers don't lie.

    We will never be consistently successful as long as we're in the WAC. In the Belt or Southland, we win 40 games.
