Pretty Easy Question there willy, don't you think?
Colonization is simply the epitome of natural selection (which is at the heart of "Darwinian" Theory), where survival of the fittest encompasses, and actually demands, that a stronger more fit population will and should eventually expand to the point where it absorbs, either over time in a relatively "peaceful" manner (through assimilation and inter-breeding, assuming that is possible) or through more forceful and generally shorter time periods of conquest and assimilation and/or outright violent extirpation.

However, how does this relate to HS Baseball and or the topic of Deering baseball some might ask ?

Well, if you look at what happened at Deering over the past few months, some parallels might be drawn to evolutionary theory and the process of natural selection. Whereby while the coaching staff (and team) had clearly evolved to a relatively high level, it still possessed some traits that ultimately left it unfit and unable to survive and allowed for another population of coaches to colonize their territory. Whether the new, colonizing population of coaches will ultimately prove more "fit" remains to be proven (only time can definitively determine that). However, the well-demonstrated previous success and abilities of the new population would suggest that they are in fact very likely to represent an overall improvement from the previous one, thereby reflecting the progressive evolution that supports the theory of natural selection. But, it must also be recognized that any new population (of coaches in this case) replacing a previous one by whatever means, can also ultimately prove to be less fit to survive and flourish over time, depending on whether it does in fact possess the full range of traits necessary to effectively address all the external factors and influences that might serve to adversely affect it.

Wow....Willy just sucked you in, I think, TLukas, and everybody else on here with a "blow hard opinion!" But, perhaps you knew that(?) and are just toying with him(?). Getting ridiculous on this subject matter. Never fear though, Mike Coutts, for one, won't be falling short of the Darwin ideals.

Can we let this one rest already...asked that once before I believe. It's time....at least until the spring!!!! ;)

Either way, I found the question, tongue in cheek or otherwise, amusing and thought provoking. And, it is still fun to frame the game of baseball in different ways and perspectives, AND, at the end of the day, we're at least still talking and thinking baseball !

Besides, Major League Baseball is all but over and done with (at least in the world and minds of us Yankees fans!!), other than watching out of morbid curiosity and/or fascination with the concept of a Rays v. Phillies WS, and HS baseball season a long ways off. So, we gotta find our baseball fun and interest where we can now, pending next Spring (or UMaine Fall Games, beginning with UM v. Husson tomorrow!).
