  1. This team has a chance to win. I realize each year some of us get excited for the team and their chances, but this team has a chance. They have excellent pitching in Kimber and Reader. They have hitting and speed. And many of their players are older, meaning rising seniors. I think they can do well up there.

  2. This year’s team does have a chance to win but they must play error free ball in the big games and this is not something they have been able to do so far. They were error-prone in the Zone but thank goodness the competition level did not match-up with them. Greensboro cannot afford to drop a fly ball in the outfiled or make 3-4 infield errors per game because there will be some very strong teams in the Series, most likely Mexico and the Caribbean representative.

    Errors beat last year’s team in the championship game. Let’s hope this year’s team left all of that baggage behind.
