    Modbot is touchy this morning. All I said was I hope he’s not asked to play the trumpet.

  2. Love Coach Nick! This should be great.

    I hope Ryan shows Coach the video of Matt running bases.

  4. “I can’t promise I’ll answer every question!” Ha! He’s got me laughing already!

    I’m sorry to hear about your mom Coach. Prayers up for you and your family.

    Coach M is the Karl Towns of baseball.

    Too bad Pitino didn’t shorten his Italian name. Could have been Coach Pit.

    I like his philosophy of small ball; it can win a lot of games. Bunts, hitting behind the runner, stealing bases, and run & hit ( I refuse to call it hit & run).

    • That’s partly what was so effective for my Reds when they smacked around and swept the roided up A’s in 1990. The difference in style between the NL and AL worked in our favor big time.

      I remember Joe Morgan kind of called it. He didn’t predict a win, but he said beforehand that the A’s haven’t played a team like the Reds. He was Nostradamus that year.

      Joe Morgan was the master of the base on balls, and the disappearing strike zone…another strategy of small ball.

  8. Les Miles eats grass, Nick eats dirt.

    Wow Embry-Riddle. Maybe coach can explain the curve ball; I had a physics prof that insisted the curve ball does not curve. I told him my uncle was signed by the Cardinals, and he should play catch with him, and that he would ask for a catcher’s mask after two pitches.

    What a great guy and a great coach. You have to give Barnhart a lot of credit bringing in 1st class coach’s. Please don’t let Coach Ming get away….hope he retires as a UK coach!!
