Everyone, generally, has their own philosophy, and some
are talented enough to adapt and some aren't. It's also important to highlight one's strengths and hide their weaknesses. Talent is the most important thing, but coaching matters in sports and other organizations. We've all made mistakes with people by not getting them in the right position to excel and Coach may have made some, who knows. It also takes the right attitude and that works both ways. It's always confusing when you see guys that don't seem to get better as they mature. However, talent matters most and Fox has had some dang good ones over the years.

To me it seems his philosophy is hammer them with the fastball....
And that seems to be a big part of the reason our top 3 (coming into the season) pen arms have struggled so much (outside of command). I'm just talking pitch choice, not command. Those 3 (when they happen to be throwing strikes) seem to get their fastballs hammered. But when they're throwing their offspeed for strikes, they are very very good. We saw that with Sam on Friday, and when Ingle is on, it's because of his offspeed. Seems Roszel wants to "blow away" hitters sometimes. But, 90-91 isn't blowing away anyone at this level. Have to pitch, not just throw. When Sam was pitching backwards on Friday he was unhittable.

For those of you who think President Trump is finished with healthcare...
...you might want to think again.

The mistake people are making is they are making their decisions on a politician being in the Oval Office. A politician would be worried about re-election and be worried about not wasting "political capital" on a fight to get new healthcare legislation passed. President Trump is not a politician.

I think President Trump is looking at this like he was turned down by City Hall for a building permit for a new skyscraper. He will step back, do a reevaluation to figure out why his permit was turned down, correct those deficiencies, and resubmit when he thinks it is ready.

The healthcare legislation put forward by the Republicans was weak, poorly presented, and needed to be turned down by "City Hall". It's time for President Trump to take charge and "help" the Republicans on the Hill craft a healthcare bill that is based on his campaign policies. President Obama has been the only president in US History to ever go against the US Constitution and craft and write legislation from the Oval Office so, unfortunately, President Trump is going to have to rely on the weak Republicans in Congress.

It's not over.

This comment really isn't a trolling
If many people receive government incentives that is applied to premiums, how can you honestly say the product is affordable?

IMO if the product isn't able to be afforded without artificial measures it by definition isn't affordable.

I hit the paywall, however I have seen the story reported elsewhere
I'm just saying there is generally a reason a good or service is substantially cheaper than other options. Yes I saw we are talking about a transgender. As for the punishment, yes the 15 years with time served seemed a touch light. Also why does all this always happen in Florida?

It really depends on the pitcher and their 'stuff'
We have several pitchers in our stable that are work ahead-pitch to contact type pitchers. We also have a few that will try to nibble with secondary pitches and then go for the out with their plus stuff.

Agnos....I think can develop into a true power pitcher with what he brings to the table

I would imagine he teaches......
what the coach tells him to teach. From Godwin to Godwin the philosophy undoubtedly changed. I am sure as a lifetime pitching coach he can most likely teach whatever he is asked to teach.

Of course I do....However, his losing the pop vote clearly does
not make him a shoe-in for re-election.

In fact........if he ever succeeds in getting his healthcare bill passed, he will have alienated the majority of his core constituency when they either get kicked off their health insurance or they can no longer afford it.

There was a discussion below about Rozell, good or bad, people have their
opinions, most of them come from individuals who are just speculating, and really don't know what they are talking about. Observations based on results, which is really silly, if it works it is great coaching, if it doesn't it is not.
I'm pretty well informed about the game, but never played at a high level, so I really know very little about the actual mechanics of craft, and the philosophies behind them. Try to pay attention when I hear coaches talk, and i try to see if I can tell what difference if makes.
For instance, heard Schanbel said they were stressing opposite field hitting with an inside out swing, and then a guy like Ben Fultz's game completely collapses. Can not put the bat on the ball with that inside out swing. Total shame. Billy stressed with Rozell as his pitching coach, pitching to both side of the plate, and one year we hit 96 batters. So coaching does matter.
Does anyone know what Rozell 's teaching methods and philosophy is, and what would he be trying to do when guys like Ingle and Lanier lose their stuff. Like is happening. X-Flat said Fox stresses low in the zone, pitch to contact. Some coaches stress keep the ball low and away. What do we do?

You sound as if this is some new phenomenon, this has been ours and almost
every team in college baseball's problem. We just THOUGHT we had it licked this year, with the quality POTENTIAL of our depth. Looking more like that is not the case.
If Ingle and Laneir could some how figure out what their problem is with finding the strike zone, we're back in business baby. If not it will be a disappointing season. Both of them are pretty good if the ball isn't 2 feet outside the strike zone. Which is happening a lot. Hard to say if it is mental or mechanical.
Getting Kruz back would be a huge shot in the arm, but he wasn't pitching all that well either.
