I have also thought of points that you made. I don’t want to critique individual players or coaching but I reflect on what has changed since last year. Yes, we lost Kat and that had an impact. However, we are playing others who did not see real playing time last year. This is a different team, now playing with two bigs which don’t always complement each other. The offense is not as smooth, moving and polished and at times looks confused. The starting lineup probably does need to change but I don’t see it happening.
have it, a lot of things look bad. Last year was a magical run. I think before the season started, someone asked what would be the biggest obstacle to repeating or something like that. My answer was the chemistry and desire/hunger to repeat. It was a herculean effort of emotion last year. The tank is often empty the next time around unless you infuse some different factors. Look no further than the Chicago Cubs. They still have not recovered from 2016.
