Wilkerson calls it wind-blown, Serrano calls it misplayed...Scott Price has not played RF since his bad miscue a couple wks ago......You HAVE to catch a fly ball and account for the wind...bottom line....we're getting better by leaps and bounds....but we're not there yet...LSU will be LOADED next year, as will the Vols..

This team does not have it no matter what Serrano says. In order to win games and especially a championship it all starts with pitching and defense. This team has neither. Maybe next year, but I doubt it. For the most part this is a young team and unless he adds some superstar JC players, mainly pitchers, I don't see them getting much better.
