Re: Mark Patterson - Which player did Dan Smith ???
You know just as well as I do that some of these younger players are intimidated by these guys. DS is very good at catching guys off guard and by the time the thought even crosses their minds they are already suckered in. YOU MUST START FROM THE TOP or it doesn’t work. Same thing with suspensions for players. If you suspend a B or A class pitcher it doesn’t send the same message or have the same effect as suspending Purcell or Clark for example. At some point, we just have to either throw all the shit out the door or start enforcing it properly. It’s exhausting and people like DS end up running others out of the game. Look how good this season is without DS anywhere in the beginning. Best season I’ve ever seen in softball as a whole. Tell me I’m wrong
