Both Money & Hilliard have amped up their game! Money went the Todd Peterson route and got his shoulders wider than his arse, and Hilliard worked on his pitches & control...

Some of our fans are clueless. Not one person commenting has seen a practice or a scrimmage but they know more than the coach who has gotten Arizona to the post season multiple times. If you have 12 pitchers, that means you have zero? Lol

Well that didn't take long for The Rant to second guess a Jay Johnson coaching decision... C'mon guys, let us at least see the product in the field of play first, Damn. Call me crazy, but maybe, just maybe, with this new staff, there will be vast improvement in both individual performance as well as the team overall. I mean hell, what If Blake Money is a legit Friday Night SEC Ace!?! Or perhaps he isn't. And the coaches are still sorting it all out, but wanted to reward the guy for all the hard work and transformation he's gone through in the offseason.

If you have 12 pitchers that means you really have zero. If this is our opening night starter not looking good for SEC play.
