That seems to be Traylor's preference...Let's see if we can win more than 20 games this year

If we don't, I believe a change of pace is in order.

The best baseball players that Wofford has seen are Yankees...the #1 pitcher for the last 4 yrs is a Yankee...he's from Massachusets to..

Redwine was the #1 starter last year. Cole was injured before the season. The pitching injuries were impossible to overcome last year. Sadly, that seems to be a recurring theme in Wofford athletics though.

I couldn't agree with you more that the injuries were just too much to overcome. Cole was going to be the #1 and varataranian the #3 but I guess they both got hurt. I also saw that a bunch of the everyday players got injured to (another yankee who played the OF two yrs ago got hurt and the starting shortstop who broke the HR record too). It's tough to compete with all those injuries.

i really think this is a strength and conditioning issue that would be improved by a real honest to goodness S and C coach/program. All it takes is money, right?

I think this forum needs spellcheck, more than it needs armchair coaches!

I agree 100%. Wofford seems to have way more than it's fair share of major injuries in football, basketball and baseball. We either need a major upgrade in S&C or perhaps consider turning to "the Dark Arts" to ward off injuries.
