Disappointing final loss for UVA. Bright spot is that the rotation looks like it may be alright with Tommy Doyle's stuff looking real sharp. The offense also looks like it could really dominate, and they should be solid defensively.

That said, 2 bad games from the pen. If the guys there don't step it up, hard to see who's coming to the rescue. It's possible late in the year, someone like Derek Casey may be available, but they really need Alec Bettinger to step it up.

ECU will be visiting y'all this weekend. Haven't checked to see if it's on TV, but will definitely have to listen in on radio if not. I have probably a half dozen baseball players as advisees and they all seem to be really nice and down to earth guys. I've also been really impressed with what I've heard from Coach Godwin.

Hopefully they can steal a game or two from UVA this weekend.

A kid from Wright State threw a perfect game against Dayton on Friday. Only the 25th one ever in Division I

Two Cubs draft picks that didn't sign, Riley Adams and Alonzo Jones, are among the more productive hitters for their programs. Jones has seen a ton of time as a true freshman for Vanderbilt and has been a playmaker. He was a first round talent the Cubs didn't really have a shot at. Adams has legitimized himself a bit as a draft C prospect while hitting .341/.469/.558 as a sophomore at SDU.

Virginia is slowly turning it around.

I still don't know why they waited so long to get Haseley into the weekend rotation. He was clearly one of their top 3 arms. The Doyle-Bettinger swap was interesting. Doyle is probably a better closer than starter (where his 2 pitch arsenal can play up more), whereas Bettinger is pretty much the same inconsistent guy in the pen and the rotation.

The lineup's good, and with Connor Jones and Adam Haseley, if they get in (and barring a collapse, they should), they'll be dangerous, but it's hard to see there being enough pitching this year for some sort of surprise run. They really need another arm to take a big jump to really think that.

Such a weird year for UVA, but they do seem like they are turning the corner. Still don't think they get a national seed (Teddy Cahill over at BA made a comment about how if UVA finished strong, and had a good ACC tournament, he thought they could surprise and perhaps snag 8). Just seems like UVA is short 1 pitcher, a 3rd starter (this is assuming Tommy Doyle settles down in the pen).

That said, NCAA tournament time and regionals ... you can make a run with 2 good starters, and in Connor Jones and Adam Haseley, they've got two guys that are really good. They've got a disciplined offense with a rock solid middle of the order, and they are a solid defensive unit. You just hope to piece together a 3rd game with the pen.

Going to be interesting - I wouldn't bet on them, but wouldn't bet against them.

LSU and Florida are headed to the 13th in their SEC Tourney game.

Huge win for LSU. Gotta think that this might solidify a national seed for them, although hard to see SEC get 5. I guess if Virginia falters in the ACC tournament, they could get 5.

I much prefer the SEC tournament than the ACC tournament. Hate this whole pool play thing to decide a conference champion.
