Yep; what could have been a great vs good weekend almost feels like a lost week, as we let a very average FSU team off the hook. Starting pitching was excellent, coupled w timely hitting and good D on Friday and Saturday had us all hoping we had turned the corner. The left side of our infield, manned by two of the sophomore leaders on the team, brought us back to earth and will most likely keep us from being elite. When your SS can't make routine plays in critical situations, why should we think he will all of a sudden clean it up in the post season.This team is very good when they’re mentally locked in (first two games this series, last two against GT, and the openers in Chapel Hill and Gainesville), but once they lose focus the wheels quickly come off. They just don’t seem mature enough to handle success.
You would hope after this game that Zamora finally “gets it” defensively. He’s a talented fielder, but not a very good one. Nearing 100 D1 starts he may just be what he is though.
The reality is we were 2 - 2 on the week in 4 home games.
