“Our offense has obviously not produced the way we would like it to produce,” Amaro said, “but I believe in these guys. They’ve had success in the past, and we have to hope they turn it on when it’s time to turn it on.”
Amaro says it’s all about finding a way:
“We’re not driving the ball and we’re not driving the ball for power, so we’re going to have to figure out different ways to try and create runs.”
