Looks like 0-2 in this trip so far.

If they have a terrible start like last year, how long of a leash does Sherman have?

Pleasant thought after the 1st day of the season.

Playing a Florida school in your opener is certainly a huge disadvantage and UD had 9 new players in the lineup.

I don't have a clue about the upcoming baseball season but going for the coach's jugular this early is real classy.

Baseball is a rare sport that it doesn’t matter if we have 9 new guys or 32 new guys. Each can perform at this have been for years.

I expect a 1-2 or better when we take these trips.

I wasn’t going for the jugular right away but asking, in comparison to the 0-13 start last year, how much do we give Sherman?

Highly unusual for a cold weather team to go south and win consistently against a warm weather team early in the season. The women's team lost their only game so far to a Florida team

Rookies is rookies and are inexperienced.

It's just common sense.

My guess is that Jim gets the full season.

FAU won over 40 games last year and went to the regionals. Tough to start with them. We can hit. It remains to be seen whether our pitching can make us contenders. Carpenter had a great series. A base stealer at the top of the lineup would help.

Where’s Jack Dubecq? I thought a 1-2 of Ludman & Jack would be a great Friday, Saturday pairing.

Schedule change.

Hens will now play Gardner Webb Friday followed by NC A&T Saturday and Sunday. NC A&T is a pretty decent meac team. Had wins over South Carolina, Charleston and Elon last year.

Ludman got rocked again tonight as Hens fall to 0-4. His line was 4.2 inning & 7 earned

At least he had 7 strikeouts in 4.2 innings. Sherman needs to find some pitching on that staff if we are going to compete in the conference. Two wins are coming up against A&T.

The Blue Hens took two from MEAC NC A&T, but who and where is our Sunday starter? Seven pitchers were used today. Where is Haas? When will Dubecq be back from injury?

Looks like Haass, Dubecq and DiFebbo are all currently out, but I don't know when they'll return. I'm guessing Sullivan will start making some appearances once it gets warmer, as long as he has no setbacks and his rehab is going well. Can he be a starter by the end of this season? I have no idea.

How or why are three quality pitchers hurt before the season started?

Did they get over extended in the winter?
