Fun facts

Moultrie, Merritt, Stewart and Munro were 4/9 regular starters for Team USA that just won the world championships and qualified for the Olympics. How about that Gator all-star team! Also, how about Munro's offense!!

Now we just gotta get Haeger involved in international competition before 2020.

In addition, Moultrie, Munro and Stewart were pivotal to the extra inning rally to defeat Japan in the gold medal game. Stewart had the walk-off hit to score Moultrie.

A few days prior in the gold medal qualifying game, Merritt was the winning run from Garcia's walk-off single in extras (also against Japan).

Speaking of Garcia, if you had to choose between her and Haeger for 2020, who would you go with? There's arguments for both.

I know, it's a shame.

Majority of voters in the United States did think so, not that that means anything in a "democracy".

Merritt was the pinch runner that scored the run. She didn’t seem to play much. Her and Cooper prob won’t make final team, among others of course.

Seems like she had the 8th most plate appearances on the team and 2nd highest OPS.

Looks like if anyone from Florida is on the chopping block for 2020, it's Stewart not Merritt.

But let's say Stewart's walk-off in the gold medal game gave her some "merit" for 2020. [cool]

3 of the Top 5 OPS leaders for Team USA are Gators. Sounds about right.  [thumb]

Munro’s offense has improved so much. An unlucky bounce over a tiny fence kept her from driving in the winning run, as Moultrie would have easily scored. Her swing looks so confident. She’s long been considered just the best defensive catcher, but I think now she’s currently the best all around catcher in the world.

All my thoughts about Trump or any other political candidate aside, we do not live in a pure “democracy”, nor have we ever, nor would i want to. Please take your political thoughts to the misc forum where they are on topic.

Then you'll follow CoachZ's advice and take your political statements to the miscellaneous forum – where idiotic statements are not just allowed, they're encouraged.

Here's a weird stat note for you... 
The players who had the game winning RBI in the last two games for team USA... 
are at the very bottom of this list of team RBI leaders.

What I'd give to find some loophole that would allow Arioto to be at Alabama for 4 years.  Just love watching her play.

Your post shows you have absolutely no understanding of how the electoral college works and why the founding fathers designed it that way.

Whether you like it or not, Trump easily won the most states; ergo, he won in a landslide and became the 45th President of the United States. Wait a little more than two years and you will be able to watch him become "46."

Actually, he will always be the 45th unless he leaves office ans runs again after his successors. Also, just because some folks vote for or otherwise support his efforts does not mean they don’t think he is crazy. They just don’t care

LOL. He may very well be crazy, but he'll also be hard to beat in 2020.

In any case, I think it's time for me to follow my own advice and stop prolonging a discussion that really doesn't belong on a softball forum. And, yes, you are technically correct that Trump will always be "45."

I love watching the top two on that RBI list.
Ariota is such a great hitter... and I love Spaulding at bat and in the field.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Btw... what kind of loophole could possibly get Ariota 4 years at Alabama..?
I think you might need some kind of time machine - or alternate universe.

I guess she could go there for 4 years as a coach.

At any rate, my point was that coach and player (or commentator) are two very different titles with very different responsibilities. I don’t think that’s arguable???
As for the idea that “most any player can do it”. I’m sorry, but as a player, two of the worst pitching coaches i tried to learn from were well coached former All-Americans (who both played for Team USA at some point in their careers).
It was not my intent to make any “requirements” based on my qualifications. I’m definitely NOT lobbying for the job. I thought it fair to say that a pitching coach (especially one expected to help a team return to and win the WCWS) should probably have a track record as a pitching coach. That was all. But it’s nice of you to think that i fit that description. I’ll sleep well tonight having received your compliment.
Sorry UF fans to have been a part of mucking up the UF thread a bit. I’ll avoid it in the future as best i can. Yay for the new reno at KSP!


Not sure why there has to be so much trashing of former players. That is YOUR community, good grief.

I said that Amanda IS a pitching coach, that is she gives lessons to kids. That does not count in your long treatises? So just how does she get experience as a pitching coach at a college, if no one trusts her and gives her a chance? Many go from teaching lessons to coaching, after they played. Working with a pitching staff of 3-5 seems to be right up her alley, then.

You can elevate your own value, of course, but deep down, think about the hard jobs in life, where the most talented and smartest end up....IT OFTEN AIN'T coaching, although that is a shame.

It is strange that these discussions of being a bad coach because you are a former player, never seem to happen with baseball players. The pool of coaches should be former players, and then find the good ones and give them a chance. I confirm my belief that most former players, with a good foundation, can be better coaches than daddy ballers who get promoted.

As they say, who needs enemies, when those in your ranks are worse...It smacks of jealously... and yeah, today, the players are more famous and that is what we built. So let them have the opportunities.

You call a logical discussion an argument.....LOL!

It's not the majority of the people - it's the majority of liberals...........Trump won the very large majority of America..........That's a reasonable consensus............Socialist liberals are congregated together and can't spread out...........The rest of America doesn't want 'em............True story..........
