I have a slightly different take on our efforts this year. Our team BA i about the same as last year. We have scored almost exactly the same amount of runs with a few games to go. We only have 2 more errors this year.
We haven’t shown a lights out pitcher yet. As Rich said, there is no Bauscher, Sweeny, Ling etc but probaly more importantly I think the entire PL is better.We often go into the tournament with only 1 or 2 teams having winning overall records. This year, there are 4 very good teams. It will be very competitive. Winning the first one is huge. I may be surprised if Sorem starts any game but have no inside information.
I’ll be there tomorrow though.
