rears its ugly head last night against USC. ASU bats have been great in the first half of the season, we have been above average on the mound, and average in the field (although our OF may have the weakest arms I have ever seen). Bottom line, we have out scored an extremely weak OOC schedule, played almost entirely at home.

In last nights loss at SC, we looked very much like the Tracy Smith teams over the past 4 years. Here is a quick summary

- Bishop caught stealing 3rd
- Ferri over throws 3rd base into LF
- Aldrete gets picked off at 2nd base
- Ferri allows a double steal without a throw
- Aldrete and Bishop allow a fly ball to drop between them
- Tracy brings Marsh in to start the 6th with over 100 pitches. Marsh gives up 3
- Extremely undisciplined against an SC starting pitcher who gave up several walks. Several first pitch swings following walks.

Lets hope we can continue to out hit our competition. We are going to be tested in the next few weeks and with Tracy at the helm we will need to score as many runs as possible to beat teams. I do not see a Tracy coached team winning many games against good teams, in low scoring affairs. Tracy did not attend the press conference following the game - not a surprise.

Come on guys, you have talent. Play with some passion and keep this thing from heading south.

Go Devils!
