Statistically, we just had our worst offensive baseball team in over 10 seasons
How do we improve? I don’t see next years line up being better than this past years line up. Cabrera will obviously be the big bat in the line up. It was disappointing to see how he finished this year though. Garza is set to have a huge year, I think he hits in the low .300s with 10+ bombs. I think Belso will have a really big year, I like the way he looked at the plate. Gio will obviously be the next Duplantis/Laird type guy in the line up. After those four, it’s a toss up. We don’t have a single player that has proven they can be a good SEC hitter.

Dugas, Bianco, and Willis all struggled with the few at bats they got. What makes me nervous is these 3 guys were suppose to be the top position players for a highly rated recruiting class.

I’ll assume Cabrera holds down LF, Garza stays at Catcher, Beloso stays at 1st, and Gio takes CF. We will need to fill 2B, SS, 3rd, RF, and DH. That’s a ton of positions to fill with players that didn’t prove themselves this year or players that haven’t had the chance to prove themselves. That’s a little scary.

I’m not overly familiar with all the new recruits. Who do we expect to step in and play immediately?

Doughty, Travinski, Torres, and Hampton will be the position players who make a big impact.

Where do you see Torres playing? I like his offense and defense.

I heard somebody joke about Chris Reid as a hitting coach, sending some players over to Traction

Im not saying we were good offensively, but what are you looking at to say this was the worst offense in 10 years

Catcher. Defensively, he could’ve started for us this season

What position does Torres play?

I’m hoping Doughty can come in and play SS from day one. We will not be an elite baseball team if our starting short stop is batting .200.

I’ve seen it mentioned that Hampton is extremely raw and may need some work before he is ready for SEC baseball.

Do you see Travinski as a DH or better than Garza defensively?

I posted a thread after the loss. Our overall team batting average was the worst it’s been since the 2008 season I think. If I was looking at the stats correctly, we finished right under .280.

Torres is a catcher who really receives well and throws well. A natural behind the plate. He’s the future at catcher.

Doughty is the real deal.

Travinski is a big bat that I’d think you’d see DH early on.

Who’s going to do it for free?

Or

Who do we stop paying in order to accommodate paying a hitting coach?

Where would Garza fit in this scenario?

Would destroy the SEC team record for walks while hitting a collective .256.

Using only batting average isnt a good measure. Id imagine batting average across baseball is down now as teams shift to more of the mlb model of more homers and less singles

Espliain to me how you can be considered and even drafted by an MLB team, yet be considered “extremely raw “? I’m struggling to see how a good high school athlete can be considered raw at baseball. It’s physical at this stage. You either have it or you don’t.

Cain recruits like a mad man. Without him he don’t get the talent

MLB looks ahead at how guys will project in the future knowing that they have time to develop in the minors. A guy can physically have the tools to hit throw and run but can still be raw.

We will need to find some leadership. Smith was the closest we had to that type of guy but he was surrounded by a lot of timid personalities. Watson, Hess, and Todd P showed some leadership but it wasn’t enough. Dups is just a quiet guy.

I hope Beloso, Cabrera, and Saul can be the position players that lead. Landon, Cole, and Fontenot will need to be the pitchers leading the way. You need at least a couple of glue guys and handful of others in their corner to steer the ship.

I agree, my title may have been somewhat misleading. Our offense wasn’t the greatest this year though. Hopefully we can find a way to get production from some new comers.
