    Leggett's bat won't get it done IMO. Is his defense going to offset that? That's the decision. Cam can DH. But Clark might be the best option with Cam staying at 3B.

    Just telling what I think we need to do to win the whole damn thing. I'm not worried about winning a damn regional or super. It's CWS or bust. Should be every year.

    Agree. He is a monster and a player no pitcher wants to see at the plate.

    Oh there are not any good solutions or it would have already been done obviously. I think I would have left the lineup as it was for Sunday to see if runs are really as good as the previous 4 SEC games averaged. 7.75 per game with 9 both USCe games on Friday and Sat. They are a solid pitching team. Leggett wasn’t the offensive catalyst, by no means do I mean that and we knew he would hit the wall, K a lot. Sometimes though a certain lineup just gels better and scores more. It’s close, the defensive numbers are a good bit better with Leggett at 3rd but it definitely puts 3 guys who can K a lot at your 7, 8, 9 and all three RH bats. Love Clark’s swing and potential, he really needs AB’s though if we go that route.

    I agree, they play 5-7 innings a week while position players play them all. Need to separate out from pitchers.

Hancock will have to hold down 1B.
    Shitty defense has been the reason for a lot of our losses. The lineup got us with Hatcher, Leggett, Skinner in there.
    Actually Sunday Cumbest got us... bases loaded 1 out and he fouls out to first.

    Skinner against RH
    Cumbest against LH

    I would love to see Mules numbers against quality pitching.. if there is a right handed with above average stuff on the bump, Mule is about as much of a threat as a MLB pitcher at the plate.. basically none

    And Skinner little to no chance against a lefty.

    So mix and match those guys accordingly

    Luck always comes into play in all levels of baseball at the championship level. We are now relying on NO Luck. It will take LUCK for others to defeat us at this point. WE are the Badasses right now. Deal with it.

    Cumbest was better vs RH pitching than left last time I checked. Granted, that was a week or so ago. I was surprised. Skinner isn't much of a hitter.

    Not doubting you at all but when I was a teenager back in the late 70's, I motocross raced a YZ 80 Yamaha, wasn't that good but I DID do it; one of a few of my favorites, I think it was Marty Smith who rode the CR125 Honda Elsinore said the same thing about practice. Hurricane Bob Hannah rode the yamahs back then, he may have been the one. At ant rate, constant practice indeed creates more luck, no doubt about it.

    No. If we won't to win kam has to play third. And play it at a decent level. Legget and cumbest and forsythe in the back 3 is a huge k rate that won't work offensively. We k enough guys that we can play w kam at third.

    They are the same guy except skinner has less pop. Huge k rate. I'd start cumbest but mix and match depending on matchup.

    Why not give McDonald a shot. Hell he has been tearing the ball up from looking at stats...

    That’s very limited action vs weak teams. Against strong pitching you would see that average dive. Same thing was being said about Leggett and many knew that SEC pitching was going to change his fortunes.

    Skinner is hitting .181 in his last 22 ABs. They're not the same.
