    Which is why I have said since April that we probably need 4-5 pitchers and 5-6 position players in the portal. We already have one position player.

    Yep, not sure it's possible to find enough in the transfer portal to salvage next year. Especially if Cade Smith is seriously injured.

    I?ll say again. We need to sign dual position players from Juco or Portal. We need at least 3 position players who can hit and pitch equally as good. That would help immediately with the scholly limitations.

    Good list. A couple thoughts or disagreements. - Logan tanner is somehow a big, slow, singles hitter whose arm has digressed. That?s not going to work long term.

    I would like to see tepper back. I think there is talent there.

    Skinner needs to go. So does corder probably.

    Hancock needs to stay. He has a 0% chance at making the bigs, ever. He?s a pretty good college player.

    Where are KC Hunt/fristoe/Johnson going to go? They have a chance to raise their stock. Or should I say get some stock. Unless we tell fristoe to move on.

    I assume cheatem is back? And siebert gets told to move on?

    Hope to see lots of new faces because the current ones are not very good at baseball.

    Hancock and Johnson are very likely gone as well. I'd almost put Presto in the 100% category. He made money this Spring and has to go or his bonus next year will get that Sr discount.

    .
    I agree on Hancock. They gonna offer a Twix Bar and Pepsi this June or next June either way. Enjoy SEC ball another year and catch.

    Hunt has the frame and arm scouts like. Hunt could be drafted high enough to move on. I hope he returns because he does have 2 years left thanks to C19

    That?s a lot of ?pro? players from a DFL team. Something aint adding up. Only 20 rounds. Lot of players from teams who actually made the tourney may have something to say about that.

    We were one of the best offenses in the SEC even without being clutch- the pitching was the problem. Wont be alot of arms drafted. Stone Simmons is someone not mentioned that could return.

    Corder should go to. He was absolute shit this year. He's a backup at best. If he's our starter in CF next year, we're in bad shape.

    I think the best we can hope for next year is to use the portal and hope a few players develop enough that we get back into the middle of the pack in the SEC and get in postseason somewhere. If Lemonis somehow gets us back into a hosting position next year then I will consider him a pure magician. I think it's likely going to take more than one season to straighten out this mess.

    That's my thinking. The team sucked this year. Can we really get worse if some of these dudes go away?

    Definitely this... For the most part, our #3 and #4 hitters in the lineup contributed 16 and 15 extra base hits, respectively, this year... a really WTF season-long cluster17, especially when you had Yeager, Hines, Kellum and Cumbest doubling those totals.

    Luke - 9 doubles, 7 HR
    Logan - 8 doubles, 7 HR

    Yeager - 15-2Bs, 1-3B, 18 HR (34 extra base hits)
    Hines - 13-2Bs 1-3B, 16 HR (30 xbh)
    Kellum - 12-2B, 1-3B, 14 HR (27 xbh)
    Cumbest - 12-2B, 15 HR (27 xbh)

    I know you're wanting your OBA guys on ahead of the power bats, but our 3- & 4-hole hitters were 4th & 5th on the team in RBI... definitely makes the case that Lemonis ran with the wrong lineup all season. But again, our MAJOR problem this year was pitching so I'm probably splitting hairs with my argument on the batting lineup.

    This is why I asked a month ago to move them down in the order. Why would you leave them at the top of the order? Another shitty Coaching job.

    Great post, and shocking stats. What was Lemonis doing keeping the lineup the same. Head scratcher
