Thanks boss. Just one of those days where the ball was flying off my bat. Pretty crazy, never thought I'd get a cycle at this level. Everything has to happen just right.

Mate, it will be the start of greater things now. You are part of Explorer folklore.

WEEK SIXTEEN

1. Discuss the latest series.
Another narrow defeat and it's those that could be costly at the end of the season...

2. What record are you most looking forward to seeing broken (if any)?
I'm more focused on keeping in contention as a team rather than focusing on individual goals...

3b. (For Contending Teams) What is it going to take to finish the season off strong and capture one of the playoff positions?
We are in a rough division and a tough conference. We need to show the glimmers of brilliance we show on occasion on a regular basis to be a true contender...

4. Talk about your Week 17 opponent
The outstanding Thunder Bay and despite already making the playoffs and winning the division will want to cement their position and dominance. We just have to show how hungry they are.

Man, that was a frustrating series loss. We have to be better then that if we want to be playoff bound.

Losing close Game 1 games and then splitting the rest of the series. Barragan has struggled the last few weeks, albeit he is still 1-1 while Valentine is in a cold spell on the mound in relief.

We can bring in Wlodyka to play short for Herrera.

WEEK SEVENTEEN

1. Discuss the latest series.
A series loss but an essential last game win keeps us in contention for the playoff hunt.

2. As you head into the final week of the regular season. What is your own biggest personal takeaway from the season?
That despite all of the detractors and disappointing split games and slanderous remarks, we are still in the hunt.

3. Talk about your Week 18 opponent. Who is the one player you know is going to show up for your club this week
It's all or nothing. There's little more to be said

WEEK EIGHTEEN

1. Discuss the season. What went right? What went wrong? Have you learned anything that will help going into next season?
Heartbreaking to fall at something as tight as a play-in. This season will be a season of misses opportunities but we will use this as a springboard to go one better next season.

2. Who was your team's MVP and why?
Brandon Wolfe has excelled as a young player and has really opened a lot of eyes to young players in the PBL

3. Which player dissappointed you the most and why?
I won't dignify this with a real answer. But any player that can be honest and understand why we haven't made the playoffs will understand how they haven't performed to their maximum potential.

4. How would you grade the job you did this season?
C. I've made some errors and put some backs up and I won't apologise for that as there are circles of seniority who have mishandled things too and they haven't admitted their errors. I could have been more hands on.

5. Who is your pick to lift the Premier Cup?
It won't be Omaha so I honestly don't care ... Golden State?

"Do you feel you went with the wrong pitcher in the play-in game and should of adjusted things for Pelkey to pitch?"

If I had done that and the result would have been the same, I'd be asked why I put Pelkey in to pitch. I have faith in all of my players to deliver and today they didn't unfortunately.

Tough to say, I mean we had a chance to clinch with Pelkey in that last game of the Indy series and we didnít win that game either. No point in dwelling on the what ifs. At the end of the day, we didnít get the job done.

GM Wrong, so close to getting to the playoffs, but even in defeat, you are Nebraska's proud son. We were successful on two goals and split another goal, so I am happy with your performance, but know we have untapped potential. I want you to tap into that potential next year.

Ooh before I call it a season Coach Hernandez please.

Coach, this is the last question I promise. Outside of talent, have any players not been pulling their weight this season? Any which we could consider cutting?

He called an audible and is celebrating with family. He has received word of you welcoming him though and looks forward to being an Explorer. Ready? Break!
