: I posted early on that I didn't think this team would go very far in the tourney, and we should have taken our penalties this year. Our hitting is less than mediocre as is our pitching. I like our defense, but this is not a typical ASU baseball team.
: Having said that: In my life, which includes playing the game, umpiring, and years of watching, I have NEVER seen umpiring so incompetent as we watched in this series. The NCAA needs to look at this and try anything to remedy this situation, such as the Pac 10 did with the football officiating.
: Also, with regret, I am becoming a little dismayed with Esmay. I watched him as a player here, but his lack of enthusiasm seems to rub off on the players.
:: I think Esmay is just different from Murphy. Other than offensive approach and not recruiting players who are good enough to beat Texas, I don't think you can blame Esmay for much. The offense just sucked the entire series. Pitching wise losing Barrett really hurt. And now the NCAA shit is catching up with the Devils. The kid playing RF for Texas would have been a Devil if sanctions weren't an issue. It will be good to get some finality to the NCAA issues. The program may have to take a step or two back to move three or four forward.
