I agree with where to put Davis in the lineup. Best to put in the 4-hole.
Outside of Davis, there really are no long ball threats in the lineup. They are single hitters with some gap power. We have not had a long ball the whole game and I doubt we see many this year. Pay attention to the depth of Holy Cross outfielders. They know it as well.
Hopefully I am being overly critical and things will get better, but I just don’t see hitting being a strong suit for this team. We will not play small ball well either as there is good speed but not great speed on the bases.
I do not pay close attention to recruiting and have been pretty busy and so was not really keeping up with the team. I was hoping to see some JC players with pop in the lineup on Friday to fill the gap or read about some long ball hitting freshman that we got. When I saw the lineup Friday, I was disappointed.
So with that, UH baseball players, shut me up and start jacking the ball out of the place.
