Scouting Report

The Good:
Despite being unable to secure a 4th championship, the Belly Itchers are one the leagues elite! A transition year in 2010 brought in three good prospects; Adam VanVorst, Robby Allen and Eric Yoder, two of which (Allen and VanVorst) put on a pitching clinic! The 1-2-3 pitching rotation of Tate, Allen and and VanVorst could become a league wide wrecking ball.

The Bad:
The Itchers only knew of one thing in the KWL, and that was winning. But after being quickly ejected from the oh-10 postseason it could have them second guessing their ablity to compete.

The Ugly:
Tate and Downs were left to do the heavy lifting in the team's line-up. Tate set career highs in Hr's, Rbi's and Avg. At the same time, he set career lows in almost every pitching catagory.

The F-Ugly:
.261 Avg, 43 Hr's, and 115 Rbi's. Those are thier 2010 team averages. Compare those to the 3 year average during their championship run: .328 Avg, 55 Hr's, and 182 Rbi's. Definatly a much less dynamic offense.
