Recruiting.
Supposed to be TJ’s calling card, he’s not done a good job bringing in talent on the mound.


Pierce didn't either. what is interesting is that it seemed like even in RJ's bad years, we still had decent pitching.

TJ better fix this. I believe this is year 3.


we’re not blaming Pierce for our lack of pitching in 2019. TJ is in his 3rd year, that’s plenty of time to get some pitching.

2010 was the only time that the pitching was as bad as this under RJ

Thanks. Not bad at all.
We’ll probably end up with a few more wins than I expected but unfortunately I still don’t see this as a Regional team. All the talk in the preseason about how improved the pitching would be is looking to be way off.

There's really only so much a pitching coach can do. Eventually, it's up to the players.

I hope you’re wrong but we’ll have to see.

Certainly, Sunday was a setback to 2018, pitching-wise. But I hope it was a glitch in what has other-wise been a significant though not sensational improvement over last season.

Going into Sunday the team ERA was 4.95, down from 5.42 last season.
After Sunday’s debacle, the staff ERA is worse than last year

So what is your prediction for the year: over or under last year?

The staff ERA at the end of the year? I’ll say it’ll be improved over last year

BTW, UCSB is ranked 25th today where I was expecting to us after taking the weekend series. Based on this weekend, many future opponents will be very patient at the plate. We better figure it out.

This will be interesting to follow. The next 8 games are crucial. I hope the team gets a lot of fan support this week. Attendance, other than Ole Miss series, looks down.

Holiday weekends; the crowds at the St. Patricks' day parades were much larger than usual. Now that there's a bit of a lull in other events happening, I suspect it'll start to tick back up.

They might be crucial if we lose, but our next 2 weekends are against teams with RPI’s in the 230-240’s. It’s not like we’re going to get a bunch of credit for beating those teams

Back end of schedule has tons of high rpi games. So if we won them we can make up a ton of ground.

Just that whole starting pitching thing....

Ucsb in at #8 by the way

What we’ve done so far is just hold serve. We haven’t dug ourselves a hole but despite a good record we don’t have much margin for error. Going to need to finish top 3 or 4 in the AAC.

Nothing so far would indicate otherwise.

Here’s the Q&A

Quote:
Casey: What’s held UCSB back from at least cracking the poll? Know it’s early, but they sure seem to check all of the boxes with record, RPI, and SOS?
Aaron Fitt: I still don’t even look at RPI this early. I look for teams that have quality series win over legitimate at-large caliber teams, and UCSB doesn’t really have one of those (best wins are at Tulane, which has been improved but is still probably not a regional team, I think; and LMU and Pepperdine, which will only be regional teams if they win the WCC tournament). That said, UCSB has a nice little resumé, and the Gauchos would probably be ranked in a normal year with more turnover in the Top 25. But this year, most of the Top 25 has really been pretty consistent, so we just have had fewer spots open up in the rankings than usual.
