I have never seen a team so emotionally fatigued that they are unable to execute as the Demons are right now. Mentally these guys are fatigued. It is evident the players are confused, they are pushing so hard they can't even Focus. There is no confidence in who is playing, where they will play or when. It is not a game of musical chairs. You must allow the players to settle in to their role on the team and build on those roles. Not constantly juggle who is playing, when they are playing and first sign of trouble yanking them with the exception of your pitchers. The hitting is off because for one reason we feel the need to change everything about their swing. Let them swing the bat and handle their batting approach unless it is evident there is a drastic problem. you dont take a 300 hitter and change their approach at the plate to result in a 200 hitter. Let these guys play ball. They know how and they can do it but this masquerade has them all mentally drained and completely torn down. There is no life to the team, they are all just fighting for their life and it has consumed them to the point they cannot focus much less perform. It is a shame. I have been watching Demon Baseball for years and years and what is wrong is evident. Lane is going to be a good coach but microscopic management is not the answer to a productive organization.

After the showing today I hope Burroughs will see that his upper classman is NOT cutting it and these guys have been playing all year long and for the past fours years most of them. Bench them and give the other guys on your team the opportunity to actually "play" baseball. The seniors and upper classman have proven game after game that they cannot do it. We need to clear the defense and give these guys on the bench an opportunity to play. Farmer, Kaufman, Van Bussen, Lyons and any other player sitting there watching this mess can step into the defense and do every bit as good as what's out there. They certainly couldn't cost us anymore than getting 10 run ruled playing 7 innings. They deserve the opportunity and not just one game and pull them at first sight of trouble.... Give them the same opportunity as you have every one else. Our season is in the sewage anyway so what. They have worked their butts off like every other player out there and scratch the "they don't have the experience" routine. The upper classman have ALL the so called experience and isn't getting the job done.

C'mon you know that just because somebody has never coached before or invested anywhere near the time that coaches do would ever stop some people from pontificating about what a coach ought to do.

I have a question...... What is this guy doing coaching this team!!!! Better players on bench that could play defense and letting somebody bat every other game is ridiculous! Seniors can't do it dude can't you see that. Give the others a REAL opportunity not one in one out. These have proven they can't do it. Couldn't get any worse right????????

You people crack me up. Ever hear the expression "Rome wasn't built in a day?" understand that most of these players are left over from Coach Davis's time and that dude was a joke. Lane is a proven winner and in due time he will have this team back at the top of the Southland Conference. Keep your head up coach. You're a great coach and a better man and all these haters can suck it. Fork'em Demons
