We lost the championship two weeks ago to a team that was below average in all aspects of the game. We were heavy favorites but they hung with us till the 10th inning and we made two glaring errors and they scored to beat us 2-1. What can we do better in the future?

Try to avoid at all costs getting to extra innings. Be more aggressive strategically, in the future to try and either win or lose the game in regulation. This is the philosophy that any US national team employs against the Japanese whenever they play them, because the Japanese teams throw and catch so well you don’t want to try and out do them in the tie-breaker. So anytime you can beat a team early or by a large margin, do so.
