I've followed and supported VCU baseball for over 40 years, and I agree with those who say this is one of the worse year's I've ever seen. The team was picked 2nd, and now they don't even qualify for the A-10 Tournament. The real negative is that the A-10 is a REALLY BAD baseball conference in which VCU did not compete this year. What is the problem with this year's team? I'd first say that the coach and his staff did a a terrible job recruiting, and I think this year's team had bad coaching. If you have played and coached baseball you know that the heart of a good team is to have good pitching, and this year's team pitching was pathetic. I question does the coach and his staff know how to evaluate pitching talent? VCU should have a top of the league team in a conference like the A-10!
