The Postseason Primer: April 26Analysis
We’re 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 and regional hosts affected their stock over the past week, while also looking at which potential bubble teams helped or hurt their stock. In addition, we highlight 10 series coming up this weekend that have major postseason ramifications.
What’s the scoop on the postseason picture at the moment? Come find out …
1. Florida (36-6, 13-5 SEC)
National seed stock: ↔
Results: After going on the road two weekends ago and doing a clean sweep of Arkansas, the Gators didn’t disappoint last week with a midweek triumph over Jacksonville before taking care of business against Georgia after actually dropping the series opener in extra innings. The Gators did absolutely nothing to hurt their top national seed status.
Strength of schedule: 3 overall, 12 non-conference
Records vs. RPI: 9-3 Top 25, 13-6 Top 50, 23-6 Top 100
The skinny: There’s not much that needs to be said about Florida’s resume at this point. The Gators have a are tied with Miami, whom they beat two of three on the road, for the most wins vs. RPI Top 25 teams (nine) and have across the board terrific metrics, including a strong strength of schedule, along with sterling conference marks. Though the top national seed is never a given, the Gators would need a collapse down the stretch not to be a top eight national seed. It looks sunny in Gainesville right now.
