So we're over halfway through the SEC slate and the regional projections are becoming easier to predict. Mark Etheridge over SE Baseball has his latest up. These are through the weekend's games.
He has us in the last five in category. My guess is after our win over USM, we're more safely in now and 2 or 3 spots from being in that category.
We have a very winnable series against aTm this weekend. Win 2 of 3 and we're locked into a regional. I don't see Mizzou beating us more than once so that puts us at 29 wins and 13 of those in the SEC. Call me crazy, but I have us getting to 30 wins and 14-16 in league play. We own Vandy in baseball like they own us in basketball. I think we steal a win in Nashville. If not, maybe we grab a win in Starkpatch (they've not swept anyone at home in SEC play, that includes AU).
Maybe I'm reading too much into the LSU series, but I think our pitching staff keeps us alive and dangerous in a regional. Just need the bats to be on that weekend and our arms will lock down the wins. If we don't swing the bats well, we're likely going 1-2 and losing by no more than 4 runs in each game. Who knows maybe the postseason starting soon will have the bats become a little more consistent and our coaches will pick a gameplan and STICK WITH IT at the plate.
Long story short, win the series this weekend and keep our name on those regional projections.
The win on Sunday against LSU was a gutty win and one that the Committee surely will have to notice if we can somehow get to 30 or more wins.
I am like you-our pitching has been a very pleasant surprise this year.
You bring up great points and the pitching has been pretty good this year. I just don't know if the hitting will be able to help out against Vandy and Miss State.
