Miami being below average in anything is a sign that our program has declined.

So now the defense doesn't matter and neither do the walks.
No, I stated a fact.

108 walks in 248 innings is fine. Saying that we walk too many guys isn't true.

We give up too many extra base hits. We give up too much solid contact.

Those would be factual observations.

The walks thing is just fanboy silliness.

You said we were below average in walks. Being below average in walks means you give up too many free baserunners. When you also have a bad defense and your pitchers give up extra base hits, those extra baserunners make a big difference.

I enjoying explaining baseball to you.

No, no.

Below average meant that we give up fewer walks than average.
Ah, so you also struggle with English. Everyone else on the planet understands that if you're "below average" in something, you aren't very good.

Rosetta Stone might help.

No, you misunderstood.

He said we give up too many walks. I said we're below average in walks.

A misunderstanding that only people who are flailing desperately and getting facts wrong (you) would point out.

We walked the worst team in the ACC 10 times in a one run game, but walks aren't a problem. Nothing to see here.

After whining about being accurately quoted about one game sample sizes, he dives right into a one game sample size.

You can't make this stuff up.

You also can't respond to it. Win.

I just did.

One game of 10 walks is....one game with 10 walks.

It doesn't change the overall narrative. The Canes don't walk too many guys.
Because all we want is for the pitching staff to be slightly below average. Don't aim too high.

Another lie.

Keep them coming.
1. We are slightly below average.
2. Walks are not a problem.

So being slightly below average is not a problem. Just own it. You don't want us to be great.

We are #102 in the country in walks allowed per 9 innings. Given that there are 150 D1 teams that don't deserve to be called D1, we are not doing well in this category.

That's in the ACC by the way.

And, yes, it's not a problem. The problem is hits and big ones.

Sure, if you just make stuff up and erase half the teams.

You're a riot.

The only way you get to call Miami "slightly below average" is to make sure to compare them to teams like Longwood and Alcorn.

102 in walks allowed - at Miami - is criminal.
