  1. It may be difficult to lure a high profile hitting coach to the Auburn program if there is a perception that the HC job could be in jeopardy over the next year.
  2. We really don't know what kind of condition she was in having finished throwing 167 pitches over the May 7 - 9 period. I would like to think that if she was capable she would have started. Penta actually pitched the regular season game that we won vs SC. Still seems to boil down to failure to manufacture hits.

  4. I listened to the LSU radio broadcast. It was painful hearing the announcer comparing our stats to LSU. He was not demeaning AU, just being factual which was painful to hear. I will say that he pretty much stuck to just calling the game without trying to add a lot of "color". The game sounded pretty much like a replay of our last 7 or 8 games and I had a feeling I knew what the outcome would be at the end. I believe the out by Garcia was a pop up hit attempt; not a bunt attempt.
  5. Regardless of who may have been offered, or who someone thinks should have been offered, or who may have been offered but did not accept, dealing with what I believe is factual; Johnnie Harris is our new WBB coach. She has announced 3 members to her staff. I am especially excited about the addition of Bob Starkey. Look forward to seeing what they can accomplish in the highly competitive SEC. Takes some guts and confidence to throw your hat in the ring for the AU job where the performance has been so poor as of late.
  6. Agree with saminbama. Feel sorry for Shelby. Gets credited with a loss because of lack of offense. She deserves better.
  7. The Chattanooga pitcher, going into the game, had an ERA of 5.1. Does not bode well for this weekend.
  8. I know those steal attempts sometimes get frustrating but in that situation in the 6th there may be some logic to the attempt. Godwin at bat (now 8th in batting order) with 1 out and I believe 2 strike count. She is batting .241. Schmidt on first has history of 2 for 2 on stolen bases. As a team our steal % this year is 80% success. Overall it may appear a better chance of success with attempted steal vs a hit. As it turned out Godwin struck out swinging and Schmidt was ruled safe at 2nd but called out for leaving first too soon ending the inning. For the series we were 5 of 7 for succes
  9. Regard using pinch runner for Perry in the 6th inning, that option had been used in 4th inning. Rule 7.14 references the “special pinch-runner.” The rule states: That once each inning, a team may utilize a player who is not in the batting order as a special pinch-runner for any offensive player. A player may be removed for a special pinch-runner one time per game. I had thought the same as you and decided to look up the rule. You would never have expected Perry to attempt stealing second and Kentucky was of the same mind and they were caught off guard. When Perry went for home and was
  10. There are a number of YouTube videos with Coach Starkey but I found this one entertaining. Impressed with the talent of these young ladies used in the demo.

  12. A perspective from the Texas A & M side. http://www.thebatt.com/sports/a-m-assistant-coach-bob-starkey-to-depart-for-assistant-coaching-position-at-auburn/article_2b47d99c-9e22-11eb-b699-87518215c63a.html
  13. Coach Buchanan comes from KU who had a 28% win record (all games) this past season. Her primary responsibilities appear to be recruiting related but that record is not much better than AU record last year of 20.8% wins. The direction of the program of course will be most dependent on Coach Harris. I am in line with AuburnNTexas above. Going forward, I just want to see signs of steady improvement.

  15. Does this mean you will be getting season tickets for front row seats directly behind the Auburn bench?
