You would have been a well rested team playing a gassed situation in semis without any subs
while you were sitting in the shade having a bartles and James game 1 against skittles. Blake was throwing his arm out and getting fatigued from being in the sun.
Having legit subs is great.. but most teams subs wouldn't have been able to hang in pool b
You played 4 tough games out of 7
If nysh had managed to beat Fl that would have been tough game 7 of 7 with all their starters playing each game
There's no way that's fair
If your team is so good and so deep man up and ask for a tougher pool play schedule
I only played 50% of the innings (or less) in our tough games, too. Whether it was a 1-0, 2-0, or 17-0 win, we alternated our starters every inning. We didn't ride our starters into the ground in our two tightly contested games against FV. We made sure our starters were fresh throughout the game. It's not our fault that other teams decided to play their starters every inning of every game. That's just poor management.
In a tournament like last weekends a mid tier team should realize that if they win 2 games they will probably make it in to elimination. Go balls out the first 2 games to get your win and then just rest everyone. That be my game plan if i was in that spot. 2-2,3-1,4-0 are all the same.
