A Full On Rant:

What the hell have the writers done to Sawamura?
He is a shell of whatever pitcher/Man he used to be.
He has gone from being (arguably) the main character to becoming one of the biggest side characters in Anime - earning himself a position next to Krillin and Yamcha from DBZ.
If the writers were hoping to take Sawamura through some sort of rough patch in order to make it twice as epic when he finally does excel on the pitch - they have left it too long.
Too long have i waited for Sawamura to step up to the plate both physically and mentally but to my utmost dissatisfaction no such moment has arrived.
Is this the same guy who at the start of this anime roared out to the coach and the whole team that he would be the ace!?
When was the last time you even heard him mention the word Ace since the start of the new season.

Writers, I am disappointed and let down by how you have managed to turn a main character with so much potential into a pathetic and disappointing nervous wreck

I marathoned this show recently and I caught up last week. Let me just say that I agree with every word you wrote in your post.

Now that the 3rd years are gone, I don't know which characters are interesting and relevant enough to carry this show now. I find Furuya way to annoying, shallow and boring to be the current main character. New-captain Kazuya, Haruichi and the shortstop/roommate dude are cool and maybe they'll develop the new additions but we still need a decent MC.

I loved this show until the spring tournament ended, everything has been downhill since then. And the MC's 80-episode long downfall is really my biggest problem.
