The Postseason Primer: May 3Analysis
We’re well past the midseason mark in college baseball, and though our latest projections and analysis will be out tomorrow, along with Aaron Fitt’s weekly Stock Report, it’s time to take a look at how last week’s national seeds affected their stock over the past week, while also looking at which potential bubble teams helped or hurt their stock.
What’s the scoop on the postseason picture at the moment? Come find out …
1. Florida (37-7, 14-6 SEC)
National seed stock: ↔
Results: The Gators certainly did nothing to hurt their case over the past week. They didn’t have a midweek game, then went on the road and split a rain-shortened two-game series against South Carolina. It’s status quo for Kevin O’Sullivan’s club.
Strength of schedule: Overall: 2, Non-conference 9
Records vs. RPI: Top 25: 10-4, Top 50: 16-7, Top 100: 27-7
The skinny: Is there anything about the Gators’ resume that isn’t impressive? Not only does O’Sullivan’s club have 10 wins vs. RPI Top 25, but the 16 wins vs. RPI Top 50 and 27 victories against Top 100 teams is extremely impressive. Furthermore, the Gators have played very tough schedules — overall and out of conference, while also tallying an impressive 10-4 record. At this juncture, there’s no one more safe with their status as a national seed than the Gators, and that won’t change down the stretch.
