    I'm curious why Smith didn't make an appearance in the circle this weekend. I was actually wondering if she would start the Ole Miss game early Saturday after Fiser pitched late night Friday versus UCF.

    She is hurt. I hope she can pitch some meaningful innings this year.

    If I recall correctly, Smith was also injured last year. Is this a recurring injury? If yes, not good news. They definitely need solid starts from a pitcher besides Fiser. Not sure who will fill that need this year.

    I was not at the games this past weekend and I did not have access to their televised games(s). While keeping an eye on the Live Stats, it just appeared they were picking up where they left off from last year. Which is very disheartening. Not able to produce runs against teams they should be. The bats were once again absent during their first loss of the season. They should have beaten Ole Miss.

    With Jensen as lead off batter, are they having her swing away more this season and try to become a more all around hitter? Also, can anybody speak on Arneson's offense? I just feel she has really struggled at the plate over the years.

    Here's hoping their pitching improves and their offense power returns starting next weekend.

    I think Smith has the same injury that limited her last year but I could be wrong. Lowary has an injury as well, is not pitching a lot of innings and will probably be relief only. Bailey is only a sophomore and maybe she can get going. I think it will be up to Brandt and Smith to provide some rest for Fiser.

    As far as Jensen goes, she hit over .400 last year so I would be cautious about trying to change too much. How much pop is a drop of 50 points worth? We need her on base. She had 25 Ks last year and only 17 BBs. I think I would try to work on the BB/K ratio. She also hit much better out of the 9 hole than she did leading off last year. We shall see how this season shapes up for her. The new hitting coach has experience with slappers.

    A lot of girls including Arneson are battling nagging injuries. This was mentioned in a previous post.

    I sense a lot of problems in reading these posts: 1. The Gophers write positively of having all 5 pitchers back, but if 2 are injured and 1 is an unproven sophomore how good is that? 2. They've scheduled a top list of opponents, but they haven't hit or scored runs against top teams the last 3 or 4 years. The Mississippi game indicated that that trend remains. 3. How is it that the team roster is filled with "nagging injuries" when the season is only one weekend old? I see a mounting list of losses to good teams, which will be deflating. Hopefully, I'm wrong. Somebody please correct my gloomy attitude.

    Only you can fix your crappy attitude.
    Injuries don't typically happen in games. They happen while cramming enough training into a couple months preparing for the season.
    Last year was worse.
    I can also tell you that we played WAY better this year opening weekend than we did the first two weekends last year.

    So at what point is a team doing too much in practice?

    I don't know the answer to that, and I'm sure a lot of thought is spent on that question. It probably depends on each player's durability and what they do in the offseason to stay at some level of condition. I'm no doctor, but I would think some things you can't do much about, such as shin splints, concussions and old high school injuries.
    I know that, when a player said their arm hurt, they were not allowed to throw, and even got punished if they were caught throwing.

    Decent amount could be attributed to practicing in dome = stiffer muscles from colder temperature and bad turf vs girls in the south able to be outside
