yes. pitching coach no. scoring same amount of runs we did in our last regional team so we are goo there. pitching is atrocious though. Fix that and we got something cooking.
What if he keeps the pitching coach and we’re just as bad next year?

Our pitching in 16 was some of the best in the country, so while it’s nice that our hitting is on par with that year, for us to be a conference champion again we have to get a lot better
If that happens, then i'll revisit next year and depending on progress or lack thereof will have to re evaluate the future and my timeline may get moved up one year.

What are your thoughts Wizard?
Yes or no

Fire Dannen?
Fire Jewett?
If no to #2, Fire Pitching Coach?
Hire Andy C.?
Like Rick Jones?
Like David Pierce?
Miss RD?

1. No. Though I definitely expected us to be further along. It's not hard to be an upgrade over RD but we really aren't winning much more.
2. I'd strongly consider firing Jewett.
3. If I were Jewett I would bring in a new pitching coach. If I were Dannen I would NOT force him to make a change though.
4. I would fully support hiring AC if we had an opening.
5. Do I like Rick Jones? Sure
6. Yes, I like Pierce as well. I like coaches that win.
7. No, I don't miss RD.

Just a couple of small tidbits to put this into perspective. 2016 - Pierce is here. 2017-18 -- current staff.

Corey Merrill: 2016 - 4W,1L; 17 Appearances; 52.2 Innings; 18 Walks; 63 K's; 2.05 ERA
2017 - 6W,5L; 15 Appearances; 85.1 Innings; 46 Walks; 67 K's; 5.06 ERA

Ross Massey: 2016 - 10W,3L; 18 Appearances; 90.1 Innings; 18 Walks; 51 K's; 2.29 ERA
2017 - 0W, 8L; 12 Appearances; 35.1 Innings; 38 Walks; 21 K's; 9.68 ERA
2018 - 2W, 2L; 13 Appearances; 30.2 Innings; 21 Walks, 20 K's; 6.46 ERA

Sam Bjorngjeld: 2016 - 1W, 0L; 22 Appearances; 20.0 Innings; 9 Walks, 19 K's; 3.15 ERA
2017 - 3W, 4L; 21 Appearances; 54.1 Innings; 44 Walks, 30 K's; 5.80 ERA
2018 - 1W, 2L; 28 Appearances; 25.2 Innings; 13 Walks, 20 K's; 4.91 ERA

These were the only 2016 players with significant playing time that carried over after Pierce left.
Ever heard of JP France?
Your sarcasm is duly accepted and understood.

JP France: 2016 - 6W, 4L; 19 Appearances; 75.2 Innings; 27 Walks; 67 K's; 3.33 ERA
2017 - 5W, 5L; 15 Appearances; 96.0 Innings; 30 Walks, 73 K's; 3.84 ERA

JP actually showed some improvement here, not so much there..............and then left for Miss. State

Thanks, P-Wizard.
France is doing very well in Starkville BTW

THanks, I agree with you on all but number 2. And I definitely agree with #3. This is on Jewett to make the changes. Dannen needs to stay clear and not micro manage staffs.
