Florida scores four runs with two outs in the ninth inning to stun Auburn's baseball team 5-4.
USE YOUR CLOSER!!!
To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice the gift.
Imho, the move of a man wanting to assure this is the end of an awful period of Tiger baseball. Hopefully Jay will grant his wish.
It's better to have Coaches who can recruit than have recruiters who can't Coach!
Dominating right-handed Auburn closer Terrance Dedrick never even warmed up.
How do you not warm up a dominate closer in a must win game and the game within three runs in the hinth. This is a microcosm of why we need a change at the top. Does anyone think the NY Yankees would enter the 9th inning without having Mo ready or the Braves without Kimbrel??? It would be different if Auburn didn't have a dominate closer.
Oh my. .. the hits just keep on coming.
Attitude is Everything
I am not standing up for the decision, and this post may answer some questions regarding where I stand on Coach Pawlowski, but I am wondering if Dedrick was available. I am pretty sure he pitched 2+ innings on Fri and, had I been the decision maker, I would have seen him as an option to get one out with Auburn in the lead. That situation never occurred. I believe I would have had Cochran-Gill ready as they went to the bottom of the 9th and I would have brought him on after the leadoff walk by O'Neal. I would have gotten Dedrick up to loosen at that point and hoped he wouldn't be needed. I agree with PM's tone that this was a very disappointing and discouraging loss for the team. Let's hope the guys are able to shake this off and get the series win today. WDE
We never play slow!! Eufaula, Alabama! WDE!!!
