I just chalk up the game to Kent playing really well and Tallmadge just struggling a little too much. Kent pitchers threw strikes and their defense made every play. Even when they booted the ball, it still went right to them for an out. Tallmadge also had three baserunning outs that really hurt them. At least one would have been a run.

Today's game should be very interesting.
When competing for a league title, you cannot lose games like that. Period. I'm glad they at least won today. Now they really have no margin for error.

The reality is that today's game wasn't as close as the score indicates either. Kent was very efficient in both games getting all the runs they could. Tallmadge hasn't been nearly as efficient but I think that is starting to change.

I would have to disagree. Any team can beat anyone on any given day. That is why baseball can be a strange game and they play all the games. Hell did anyone think Stow would have beaten Jackson last year in the high school baseball playoffs?

Bottom line is it is only one loss. Do they need to win those games, yes. But does it mean now they won't compete for the League, No. Lots of baseball still to be played.

I have to admit, if you were watching the game on Tuesday it may have reminded you a lot of a game a few years ago in Little League when a team that was a heavy favorite lost to a team from West Akron in the 12 year old district LL tourney. Think the final was 2-1 or 3-2. Should have never happened but it did.

Very true. I guess what I'm saying is that most likely, the league champ will have one or two league losses. By losing to the bottom feeder of the league, it leaves no room for losses against the real teams.
I do agree though, any team can beat any other team. As far as the LL game you speak of, that's taboo...we don't speak about that game anymore.

Last years League Champ had 2 losses, so in that regard you would be correct. But I also believe that team lost to the Kent team for one of those 2 losses. So just saying!

I wouldn't want to speak of that game either......but it drew similarities and you were close to that , so it was my best comparison.

Just a quick comment about Kent, they still have some pretty good players. I really like their SS (Day), 1st (Kaderle), and CF (Gray). I think Tallmadge should have won but Kent played very well that day. Kent's defense in the second game was not nearly as good as the first game. From what I've read and heard, it was Kent's best defensive game by far this year.

The 2B/Leadoff Common is a nice player too and I believe a freshmen.

Just to clear up BlueDevil Backer's post regarding last year's champion (Copley) losing one game to Kent Roosevelt. Not true, they swept Kent, but did have a loss to Revere and Tallmadge. The loss to Revere was the last league game of the year after Copley clinched the title the day before. But, the point is well taken, many teams can beat any other team within the conference seemingly this season.

Thanks for the correction Hit! I knew they lost to one of the teams at the bottom of the standings, just could not recall if it was Kent or Revere.

Was it the Kent game they came from behind late in the game to get a W? I believe one of those games was a back and forth game.

Actually neither game vs Kent was that close. Revere is the team that has always presented problems for Copley the past few years, regarding either team's record. Glad Copley is finished with them after this past week's sweep of the Minuteman. Both games were run ruled games. Revere seems very young, but they had trouble scoring runs vs Copley, but I'm sure Copley's pitching had something to do with that.

So now that everyone is starting to see all the Suburban teams, what are people's thoughts on the teams. Pro's, Con's, Projections on the league?

Still seems a little early to draw any concrete conclusions. Tallmadge still looks like a solid contender, as does Copley and Aurora. Still can't get much of a read on Highland. Thought initially they would be a serious contender, and they still yet may be, but it's hard to get any feedback on them early on. What doesnt seem to have changed since last year, is that Barberton, Kent, and Revere look to bring up the rear once again.

Copley at Tallmadge tomorrow. That game should give us a good indication where both stand in the league. Looks to be good weather.

Aurora has been strong out of the gate, but not sure they have been tested yet with their opponents. But have a good nucleus returning and good senior leadership.

Copley also has a good nucleus. Lost some key players as well. I would assume strength might be pitching with solid middle of the order bats.

I agree, not sure about Highland. I know they have some good arms and some solid bats. But they have started off hot and cold, so can't really get a good read on them.

Kent has a few solid players, but their season will go as good as their defense can play. When we played them, one game they made all the plays and hit well. Game 2 completely opposite where they did not hit and made 3 errors defensively.

Have not seen Barberton or Revere yet.

One thing that looks a little clearer is that Kent Roosevelt/Aurora game.

Kent's ace pitched the 3/30 game. With the amount of games played by Kent leading up to that first game against Aurora (3/29), they likely didn't have any pitching left.

Copley looked very good last night vs. Tallmadge. Hayes was again dominant and completely shut down the Tallmadge bats. Solid defense and clutch hitting by a number of players was huge. They look very good so far. Hopefully the weather holds up and they can have the rematch tonight.

Tallmadge has begun to dig themselves a hole in the Suburban American race. Almost a "must win" situation today at Copley. Really can't afford to drop 3 games behind the Indians, even this early in the season. Still a way to go for everybody, but falling behind that much behind could make it a tall mountain to climb for Tallmadge.

I have been told many times that Tallmadge does not care about league just about districts and regionals... according to H2

Agreed. A win today for Tallmadge and they are right back in the middle of the race. A loss would put them in some serious trouble.

It will be interesting to see the season play out for Copley as their pitching is still a big unknown outside of Hayes.

I guess when you haven't had a league title in some years, with all the high expectations put forth recently for Tallmadge, it's convenient to say the league title isn't important, just a big tournament run. Can't argue that post season tournament play ultimately is the goal, but after dropping a few early on league games, to dismiss the league title as insignificant, is an interesting way of looking at things. Personally, I would think a run at both goals would be pretty important, especially this early in the season.
