    With winter in it's last stages, I sure hope our bats wake from hibernation.

    Thanks for answering, sears

    I thought for a while I'd be talking to myself....

    You pitched at the college level, right? Do you think our pitchers are looking OK? Given the amount of runs scored in college, I think they are doing alright. It's the bats I'm concerned with.

    The bats will come around. They've finally been able to go outside for B.P. You can only do so much hitting indoors in the corner of the WHAC. These preseason games are basically practices/scrimmages for the Bucks.

    Big Ten starts April 2nd. Lewis is on track to be back right around that time. He's looking good and his rehab is ahead of pace. He'll be a nice addition to the rotation.

    When Caravati, Anderson, Farinacci, and some of the young guys come around at the plate this will be a good team. I still think we'll win the conference.

    The pitching is suspect too as well as the defense. We've committed 17 errors thus far through 9 games. That puts a lot more stress on the pitchers when you give teams extra outs per inning. Our pitchers are not helping themselves out any by walking batters either.

    Like CleveBucks said though, getting Lewis will do wonders obviously.

    It's easy to blame not getting reps outside as the reason why we're struggling but there's a lot of truth to it. Every facet of the game, save pitching, can only truly be improved through practice on an actual field.

    When I played in college the worst thing about practicing indoors was trying to take infield and learn where you line-up for relay throws in a gym. It's just not possible.

    I don't even wanna get into the guy over .300 is sad.

    No doubt

    For College, that's pathetic. Imagine, an Ohio State team with no offense. Why the very idea......

    Very coincidental.
