So it's possible to have a good offense, good defense, and good pitching. Weird.
And every decade or so NC State stumbles onto a team like this. They still usually fail to reach Omaha but they have a team like this nonetheless. Want to compare success rates for Eliott Avent to Miami baseball?

They are separate.

I clearly mentioned defense and that's what we were talking about. Good pitching negates defense even further.
And we don't have good pitching, which causes our poor defense to affect games. You're tripping over yourself.

Looks like a lot of non baseball folks arguing absolutes instead of looking at the data. Of course you need to score runs to win. The sky is also blue. You also need to prevent the other team from scoring runs. The team who scores more runs wins the game! Simple.

No, because I know you are just itching to talk about the past. Join us here in the future.

Why the sabbatical?

How much did Gino or his family pay to get that published? Maybe the Author owed them a favor.
Miami baseball sucks. I’ll continue saying this until we get a real coach and the administration does something about resurrecting this program. Hiring a rich alum’s son is no bueno. Just a joke.

Are you ready to admit that if we had brought in freshmen instead of JUCO transfers in 2017 that we might not be in 9th place in the ACC right now.......after two missed postseasons?

No.

Fix the pitching and the defense is irrelevant.
I know it's you, but that is the worst take ever. What do you think will happen, we just strike everyone out?

No because that is the stupidest thing you've said to date.

And you're actually changing what you said originally. You actually said that we should have given more ABs to the freshmen and that would've made us better.

So giving more ABs to Nico Baldor (who stinks) would've done the trick.

Laughable.

Well, increasing the K rate is one way to improve this.

But right now we're giving up too many hard hit balls. Even you understand that defense improves when hitters can't make solid contact.

Right, IF WE HAD RECRUITED ANY FRESHMEN. We obviously didn't recruit any freshmen because we needed to land Brandon Gali.

Land freshmen instead of JUCO JAGs in 2017, and we fast forward the progress by a year.

You don't watch games, so you don't realize that it's not "hard hit balls" that are giving us trouble.

No, they recruited JUCOs because they missed and/or had attrition that necessitated it.

It must be purposeful at this point because you can't be this dumb.

Okay, so admit that we recruited poorly, either in identification of freshmen or convincing them to sign. It's okay to admit that they screwed up.

I've never said otherwise. The roster was top heavy and they had fewer ships to give and they missed (and got unlucky).

You don't have any points to make so you nitpick this false narrative.

Of course, the roster was top heavy because we managed to recruit and hold onto guys who can't play at this level.
