I love aggressive baserunning and stolen bases but it doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to me when twice yesterday MW didn’t steal second with runners on 1st & 3rd(one of the time is was Popelka at 1st who MW has said is our fastest player) and then for our last AB in Gm 1 he puts Brandon in to pinch hit then has Bella Dayton steal and get thrown out to end the inning and not give Brandon an AB. We have a lot of talent and I’m glad to see the bench players get opportunities but the amount of not only physical but mental errors everyone is committing is concerning.
We knew that our pitching would be a bit of an issue, but I think MW needs to have a shorter leash with Mac Morgan, once we are out of tournaments and pitchers are more fresh hopefully we will see him do that. We can get by with decent pitching with our offense on most nights but if we commit 3-4 errors a game against good teams we will not be successful this season.
I think Estelle Czech will emerge as our ace and we need Sophia to be more consistent because she is good enough to beat a lot of teams if she can throw strikes.
We have a chance to be really special, we just need to lock in and make some better situational decisions rotation/lineup wise.
