Zubia’s skills at 1B are somewhere between clown show and train wreck.  He makes even the routine outs at first look tough.  Brutal

He played surprisingly well there last year.

Maybe put Petrinski there? Isnt that where old C go to die?

Not patient at the plate, chasing off speed, slow reacting to heat...etc. Stuff that can be fixed with more AB’s. Couple of errors as well. They look pretty rusty today against a solid team with a damn good bullpen. Regroup and be ready for tomorrow.

No practices in 8 days straight into a top 10 matchup will do that

We need to wait quite a bit to pass judgement on this team, but this was not a great start.  Our hitting (talent and approach at the plate) has been terrible under Pierce.  If he doesn't turn that around this year, he's gone.

WTF was there an hour between the first two games?  No need to get fans in and out when they have all day passes. 
 

Ark-TT may be 8:30 first pitch at this rate. In theory, tomorrow should be worse from a time perspective.

Both teams have to get on the field to warm-up bodies, arms, etc.  Then both teams get to take full IF/OF warm-up.

Also, TCU just got hosed on a HBP that turned into a non-HBP and K instead (thanks to replay). But the fascinating part is that thanks to the CoVid rule about coach/umpire conversations and coaches not being able to cross the foul lines, Schlossnagle was ready to light some umpire up, but they overturned the call and all of them proceeded to move to the middle of the IF and not even go over and acknowledge him. Honestly it’s kind of a chickenshit rule that allows umpires to blow a call and then run and hide.

In addition to the above explanation takes a good bit to prepare the field again

He'd already be gone save for one AA season from Clemens and Covid.
