Predicting a team's chances of the CWS based on performance of a few games in early March is not realistic. It's chicken little cry baby crap.
Same type of people who watched the first half of the football game against Colorado last September and said we'd have a middling season.
So far, our fielding has been ghastly. Our pitchers are getting shelled. We haven't shown a great deal of confidence at the plate. Combined, these factors have resulted in a pretty awful record given our opposition. Yes, there have been injuries. Yes, we were missing some starters. And, yes, it is early. I grant all these things. Yet, you are what your record says you are.
Will things turn around? Hopefully. Our roster isn't filled with schmoes, and we know they can play the game. They'll find their rhythm here soon enough. I'd rather start weak and finish strong, with visible improvement every week.
