Did anyone watching on TV see the glimpse of the dugout... is Corey there? I'm pretty sure I saw him next to Clint.

Corey was not there on Sunday.

I thought I saw the same thing.  He had some stubble.  It went by quickly, but I thought it was a live shot.

Carlson is on fire right now. Really like our chances every time she's in the circle. Need to get Martin back on the right track.

This team is unstoppable if they can somehow get the bats going a little more.

Also great to see that Coop has her batting eye back.  It was basically Cooper and Wallace yesterday.  Rivera is a plus for the offense (and defense as well).  I think Crocker and Greenwood have a little more upside at bat than their competitors at their respective positions.  They just need more reps.  We have a chance to actually increase our team BA down the stretch.

Since 1 of our fellow Aubies has said definitively that Corey wasn't there Sunday, & since no 1 in any media format that I've found has mentioned seeing him there, I take it he wasn't present. I'm glad you saw the same thing I did--nice to know I'm not losing it.  :)  It hadn't occurred to me that it might not have been a live shot, but I'm thinking that must be the explanation given that I believe it was Corey. After reading an interview with Clint this past week where he said he'd take Corey back "in a heartbeat," I found myself hoping Corey might be helping out on home games or something. Clint's comments have me believing all those rumors about Corey's conduct were just that--rumors. I can't see that a coach--even a dad--would take an assistant back "in a heartbeat" if some wrongdoing had occurred. So, I was hoping he was there. But apparently not...

That's a mighty big "if". Another big "if" is that IF we're going to be a pitch to contact pitching staff, the errors have simply got to stop.

The potential is there for another run at OKC but it's now becoming time for these things start to fall into place. I'm not discouraged, but I'm certainly concerned.

I would love for the errors to drop more, but looking back on last season statistics we are committing slightly less less errors per game than last year.  VERY SLIGHTLY.  It does seem like the errors are piling up, and they definitely extend innings.  If we can eliminate most of those, then we eliminate a lot of base runners on the process.   Here's a look at our errors over the last 3 seasons.

2015   45 errors in 67 games comes out to .671 errors per game
2016  63 errors in 70 games comes out to 0.9 errors per game
2017  33 errors in 39 games, comes out to 0.846 errors per game.

Most of our errors are coming from the middle of the infield.  Fagan with 8, and McCrackin with 9 and Crocker with 1.   That's more than half of our team errors there with 18 of them.   We are young on the right side of the infield, but at the same time, we've played 39 games.  We shouldn't be making the same mistakes.  Ironically though the left side of the infield with the 2 veteran players have just as many errors as the right side, give or take 1 or 2.   12 errors for the left side and 13 for the right side.

Slightly off topic, but the softball scoring is lenient to both fielders and hitters, to put it mildly. I'm not speaking of just our team, it's everywhere. Modestly hit liners that pop out of a fielder's glove are scored hits, on and on across the sport. Were these games being scored like baseball is scored, a bunch of batting averages would nosedive, right along with fielding percentages.
