Can you talk a little about UNC and their top talent going into the year?
via
·
about an hour ago

Aaron Fitt:
I would direct you to read our thorough Top 25 breakdown of UNC when it is posted tomorrow. We also broke down the Heels on the podcast today. We both really like the core group of position players: Warmoth/Miller/Gahagan/Datres/Riley/Roberts/Pate — OK we like the entire lineup. That is an athletic team loaded with a bunch of guys who can really hit. And of course it helps to have a premium guy atop the rotation in Bukauskas.

Any NCAA legislation on expanding number of scholarships?
via

about an hour ago

Aaron Fitt:
That is not happening anytime soon, I’m afraid. The only potential changes to scholarships will be a vote in April to determine if schools can distribute their aid to all 35 men on their roster (instead of just 27 like it is now), and whether schools will be allowed to give less than a 25 percent scholarship (right now, all players on athletic aid must receive at least 25 percent).

What are your thoughts on Randy Mazey and West Virginia? Any chance they build off 36 wins last year?
via
·
about an hour ago

Aaron Fitt:
Yeah, I’m pretty high on the Mountaineers this year — they strike me as a regional-caliber club. Still pretty young, but they played so many freshmen last year that now they find themselves loaded with experienced sophomores, and a lot of those guys are good players. WVU feels like the fourth or fifth team in the Big 12 to me, and I think that should be at least a five-bid league.

Comment From Andrew
I’m a Gator alum, but I’m a little surprised at all the optimism about this year’s Florida team. UF was an average offensive team and lost its only great hitter. The weekend rotation has gobs of talent, but Singer and Kowar, for all their upside, both have question marks – Kowar missed the last couple months of the season, while Singer wasn’t actually that good as a freshman. And there are essentially no proven relievers on the team. It’s an O’Sullivan team, so I

Kendall Rogers:

Andrew,

You bring up some valid questions, however, I think the Gators return plenty from an offensive perspective. Liput/India/Rivera/Schwarz/Guthrie are all quality guys at the plate, and I know the coaching staff is excited about the potential of Austin Langworthy due to his mature approach. I love the rotation and I’m honestly not concerned at all about Singer and Kowar reaching their potential (though I want Kowar to stay healthy). The bullpen won’t be as stout, but plenty of key and talented pieces with Frank Rubio and others.

Comment From Robert
I noticed that the SEC has 4 top 10 teams, but only 1 other team in the top 25…are you guys expecting the SEC to be top heavy this year and not as strong top to bottom as it usually is?
via
·
about an hour ago

Aaron Fitt:
I suppose we are expecting that, but I should add that I wouldn’t be surprised in the least to see teams like Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Arkansas and Kentucky find their way into the Top 25 pretty early in the season. So that gives you nine teams that I think are all clearly regional-caliber.

Comment From Dan
Will Lodolo be a weekend starter as a FR? King?
via
·
about an hour ago

Kendall Rogers:
Dan,
Right now I would say King doesn’t start on the weekend and Lodolo does. The scoop out of Fort Worth is that Lodolo is very advanced for his age, which is no surprise considering where he got drafted. Lodolo has a smooth motion and release and showed a very good slurve in the fall with good velo on his fastball. Always tough for a freshman to make a huge, immediate impact, but Lodolo has IT. King is a power arm who just needs to refine his secondary stuff moving forward into the season.

Comment From Justin
What do you think the ceiling will be for NC State, and with the numbers for Mendoza last year, are you surprised that he didn’t make any preseason teams? I think he has potential to be ACC player of the year….
via
·
about an hour ago

Aaron Fitt:
I might be with you on Mendoza — I think he’s a really good player who maybe hasn’t gotten his due on a national level. I think he is NC State’s best player, and I agree that he should be regarded as a strong ACC POY candidate. I just love that lineup, and I like the depth on the pitching staff, though I’m curious to see how the roles will shake out. Obviously we are buying into the Feeney hype — if he can hold down a weekend spot as a freshman, it’ll be huge for the Wolfpack. I kinda think Tommy DeJuneas would be a great fit as a starter too. Not sure yet if they’re going to take that route, but I’d like to see them try it. Anyway, there is still some uncertainty about the pitching, but I do think they have a lot of quality arms, and they’ll figure out how to piece the staff together. Definitely a team with Omaha upside, but Kendall and I agree that there is a gap between the top 5 and everybody else this year — we’d have NC State at the front of that second tier of contenders.

Hi guys, if you had to pick an unranked team/teams from your preseason poll to make a surprise run to Omaha, who would it be?
via
·
about an hour ago

Aaron Fitt:
I’m going with South Alabama — a team that I really wanted to squeeze into the rankings, but we just ran out of room. Love the depth on the mound — they’ve got a whole bunch of 90-plus guys with swing-and-miss breaking balls, and a nice core of position players up the middle in Jared Barnes, Drew LaBounty and Travis Swagerty. The Jags are my Omaha sleeper this year.

Comment From Tony
It was great to see Oklahoma State back in Omaha. Any hopes for a return trip?
via
·
about an hour ago

Kendall Rogers:
Oklahoma State was in our Top 25 discussion for sure — strongly in the mix. I think the big thing for me when it comes to the Pokes are the key pieces they are without offensively. They need more consistency out of guys like Dustin Williams to equal last season’s results. I actually do like the one-two punch of Buffet/Elliott on the bump with a power arm like Cobb on the back-end. I would have Oklahoma State third in the Big12 on my list, with Texas right there behind.
via
·

Aaron Fitt:
To piggyback on Kendall’s comment, Oklahoma State and South Alabama were the top two teams that didn’t make our Top 25. We both do like both of those teams.

Comment From Ryan
Thought on Dallas Baptist in 2017?
via
·
about an hour ago

Kendall Rogers:
Ryan,
Dallas Baptist was another team in the mix for our Top 25. I actually think the Pats will be very good this year. Really liked what I saw from them in the fall. Martinson/Johnson/Conn is a solid rotation and my guy to watch is Seth Elledge on the back-end. He’s got an interesting arm angle and was up to 94-95 in the fall. I would keep close tabs on Ray Gaither and Jameson Hannah. I look for big-time seasons from both of those guys this spring.

Is this a do or die year for Serrano at Tennessee? Just hasn’t been able to build a consistent winner there.

I think it’s pretty safe to say that Tennessee needs to make some serious strides this spring. We’d be lying to say otherwise.

Comment From Brandon
Realistic expectations for Goff and Alabama this year?
via
·
about an hour ago

Kendall Rogers:
Brandon,
Question marks abound on the pitching staff outside of the top two — I do think those Friday and Saturday roles are in good spots w/ Walters and Eicholtz, however. Getting those two guys back is huge. Bama desperately needs guys like Taylor/Avant/Vance to be more consistent. All three have shown flashes of greatness at times, but also the opposite.

Comment From Mark
What do you see as a ceiling for the Clemson Tigers this season?
via
·
about an hour ago

Aaron Fitt:
I think that could be an Omaha team if the pitching comes together as the Tigers hope. Definitely a CWS-caliber lineup, I think. The knock on the Tigers is that they lack shutdown power arms, but Krall, Barnes, Eubanks and Tyler Jackson give them a nice group of pitchability starters, and pitching coach Andrew See did a masterful job of getting the most out of his staff last year. Should be a fun year for the Tigers.

Comment From Caa
How many caa teams you see making tourney
via
·
about an hour ago

Aaron Fitt:
I’m thinking probably two — UNCW and College of Charleston (though I don’t think the Cougars are a slam-dunk regional team this year). Delaware also sounds pretty intriguing, and Elon should be improved, and William & Mary could contend for an at-large spot too. So that’s five teams that I view as potential regional contenders. I could see the CAA getting three of those teams into regionals if the league has a strong RPI season.

Any thoughts about the Big West this year?
via

Kendall Rogers:

Should be a fun league. I think it will be a 3 or 4 bid league come postseason time, and I know Aaron and I differ, but I actually lean toward being a four-bid league. I’m going to go out on that limb!

I think Cal State Fullerton and UCSB obviously make the postseason, and I think Cal Poly and LBSU will put themselves in position to be in strong consideration.

Is this the year East Carolina finally makes Omaha? Feelings around the program is that the performance under CG has been ahead of schedule the past couple years.
via
·
about an hour ago

Kendall Rogers:
Chris,
Good question. I wouldn’t be surprised at all. While I don’t think ECU has a JB Bukauskas or what not in the weekend rotation, I think it’s a solid group, and I love, and I mean, love, that lineup with Watkins/Yorgen/Sutton-Williams and others back in the saddle. And … ECU is always going to play with a little chip on the shoulder with Cliff Godwin there. I’m actually a little jealous Fitt is only an hour from these guys every weekend.

Comment From Bob North Myrtle B…
Do you see the Sun Belt coming down to CCU and ULL? Also, is CCU’s bats are not as potent as last year how far can their arms take them?
via
·
about an hour ago

Aaron Fitt:
Certainly the Chants and the Cajuns look like the favorites, and we think that race is going to be fascinating (we’ve got those teams very close together in our Top 25 rankings). But I also think South Alabama is a legitimate contender for the Sun Belt title. You’re right that Coastal has lost a good deal of offensive firepower, but I’m expecting big things from newcomers Jordan Gore and Wood Myers and Cory Wood, and I think we’ll see significant steps forward from Woodall and Ewing, two guys the Chanticleers are really counting on. So I still expect this to be a potent offense and a good defense, but you’re correct that the pitching looks like the real strength. What more do we need to say about Andrew Beckwith, Alex Cunningham and Bobby Holmes? Those guys are proven champions, and Jason Bilous has monstrous upside… I think he’s going to have a very big year.

Comment From Ryan
Do you see Arkansas having a bounce back season and what impact do you think Wes Johnson will have on the pitching staff?
via
·
about an hour ago

Kendall Rogers:
Ryan,
I considered making a strong pitch to make Arkansas ranked, but I still think there are too many unknowns. For instance, there’s a ton of positive buzz about Isaiah Campbell (especially him) and Blaine Knight, but they need to go out and show it. The offense has potential, too, but again it’s a great that needs to prove it.

Comment From Keith
Is Texas Tech fit to defend their Big 12 regular season title? Do they have the pitching to get a repeat trip to Omaha?
via
·
about an hour ago

Kendall Rogers:
Keith,
I think they could be, but TCU is an extremely difficult team to get past this year. Tech has a terrific one-two punch in Davis Martin (love this guy) and Gingery. I think the big key for Tech this year is that there’s more bullpen depth and power arms than in the past. That should help negate some of the losses in the offensive production department. Tim Tadlock is jazzed about this team and so am I. Can’t wait to see them in Houston.

Comment From Wakefan
How do you see Wake Forest doing this year? Pitching should be deeper and should have a tough lineup as well.
via
·
about an hour ago

Aaron Fitt:
You summed it up pretty well — the Deacs believe they have their deepest pitching staff of the Tom Walter era, and the offense should still be very capable even without Craig and Mondou. Obviously getting Parker Dunshee back at the front of the rotation was huge for those guys. They’ve got a bunch of guys who need to take steps forward in the lineup (Johnny Aiello, Keegan Maronpot, Jonathan Pryor and a few others), but the ability is there. Nice to build a lineup around Gavin Sheets and Stuart Fairchild, two very good players. Feels like a borderline NCAA tournament team once again — could go either way. ACC looks very deep once again this year, so it won’t be easy.

Which is the favorite in the A10? Do you think VCU will bounce back?
via
·
about an hour ago

Aaron Fitt:
Looks pretty wide open to me. VCU, Saint Louis, St. Joe’s and URI all look like legit contenders for the conference title — that’s going to be wild, as it often is in that league. VCU still has a number of key holdovers from that super regional team (notably Logan Farrar, Darian Carpenter, Daane Berezo, Sean Thompson), and some quality young players as well. I do think the Rams will bounce back nicely.

Comment From Robert
What is the ceiling for Texas A&M with so many new faces in the starting lineup this year?
via
·
about an hour ago

Kendall Rogers:
Robert,
I think A&M has had a successful season if it gets back to a super regional. I can amend that expectation as the season progresses, but I want to see them surprise me offensively before I make a proclamation beyond that. I do think A&M sets up very well on the mound. Hill/Larkins/Kilkenny will be a solid 1-2-3 and Corbin Martin should be one of the nation’s premier guys out of the bullpen … All eyes on Will Bolt/Justin Seely and that offense.

Comment From Mike
How do you see the Terps this year? They have one of the better weekend rotations in the nation combined with arguably the best offensive middle infield combination in all of college baseball. Is this the year they make it to Omaha?
via
·
about an hour ago

Aaron Fitt:
I am bullish on the Terps, for exactly the reasons you identified. I love teams that just smother you with strikes like Maryland’s weekend rotation does. I love teams that are strong up the middle like Maryland is. And then they’ve also got some pretty good pop with Marty Costes (who can mash), Madison Nickens, Nick Cieri plus Smith and Dunn. Just strikes me as a very balanced club. Sure, they could make it to Omaha if they’re hot at the right time — pretty good back-of-the-Top 25 sleeper, if you ask me.

Comment From Guest
Thoughts on the Canes heading into ’17? The team returns most of its strong infield defense and the pitching rotation appears to be more solid than last season. The outfield has question marks around Chester but depth appears better than last season although Collins will be irreplaceable at catcher.
via
·
about an hour ago

Kendall Rogers:
The big key for me with Miami is the weekend rotation beyond Mediavilla stepping up and Chester having a huge year to kind of set the tone for that lineup. If Chester builds on his success last year, I think that’s a very good springboard for that lineup going into the spring. Miami has a lot of question marks, but the potential and talent certainly there.

Kendall Rogers:
VERDE — Had a great conversation with Coach Jewett the other day. I like the Green Wave’s rotation and I think the offense will be very solid with the return of Williams and others. I think the area that concerns me is quality bullpen depth. Tulane will need to figure out those roles as the season progresses. That’s the key for me w/ Tulane.

Any guess on the starting pitching rotation for the Gamecocks?

Kendall Rogers:
Looks like Clarke Schmidt, Wil Crowe and Adam Hill for now. That’s a stout one-two punch. I’d like to see Tyler Johnson get a crack at the weekend rotation, too, but we’ll see if Holbrook has a change of heart on that moving forward. He’s got electric stuff.

What is it you like about FSU to have them at #3?

Kendall Rogers:
Single,
Fitt and I both obviously like what FSU has from an offensive perspective. That’s just a loaded lineup. I also think the Seminoles will have a solid weekend rotation w/ Carlton/Sands/Holton, and there’s some bullpen depth there. This is a pretty balanced FSU team.

Comment From VUHawkTalk
How much does VU have to worry about depth on the hill this spring. Some of the “second line” arms haven’t yet flexed their potential (or have the ability to consistently throw strikes in prior seasons). Our front line can compete with anyone, but is VU a couple of ill timed injuries away from falling out of the Top 25?
via
·
40 minutes ago

Aaron Fitt:
Probably a fair concern — there are a bunch of sophomores and freshmen who need to establish themselves behind the top guys. I certainly trust the track record of Scott Brown and Tim Corbin to develop those guys, but keeping the big guns healthy is critically important, as it is for most teams. I’ve mentioned a few times that I’m in on Collin Snider, and it sounds like McGarry and and Conger also made big strides in the fall. And between Jackson Gillis, Drake Fellows, Zachary King and Paxton Stover, you’ve got four newcomers who all have quality arms. I’m not too concerned about the depth of this staff.

Aaron Fitt:
I love Virginia’s lineup, which has athleticism, power, speed and balance. I am not sold on the pitching, which remains a question mark, as it was heading into last season. The Cavs still managed to piece it together last year and hosted a regional, but that was not one of their better pitching staffs. Aside from Adam Haseley, there’s just a lack of proven, reliable options on the mound.

This was accidentlally left in comments section, i’ll post here:For Tulane – do you know if the Green Wave will bring Corey Merrill back as a starter, or keep him coming out of the bullpen? And do you think Ross Massey comes into the year as the number one pitcher?
via

re: Tulane — looks like Massey will be No. 1 and Merrill will be the No. 2 starter. That actually has a chance to be a pretty good rotation with those two and JP France.

Obviously Maryland is our favorite in the Big Ten, but we also debated Nebraska, Michigan and Michigan State for the Top 25 — those all look like postseason contenders. Indiana is interesting too if those young arms develop. Other Northern teams to keep an eye on are Boston College and UConn, for sure.

SLC — It really looks wide open after Sam Houston State in my eyes. I really, really like what Matt Deggs has back this season and they’ve got a massive series week two at home against the Ragin’ Cajuns. Heath Donica/Riley Gossett is a stout one-two punch and you know Deggs will have a productive offense.

I saw Christian Hicks penciled in at 1B in your UF write up. How sure are you of that happening? Seems like they’d have better options.

Aaron Fitt:
They like what they saw from Hicks in the fall — he could be a candidate to make a real jump as an upperclassmen, along the lines of Josh Tobias (though I’m not saying he’s going to be an All-American like Tobias became). But that competition is still open, with a number of other guys in the mix. I think Keenan Bell is another real possibility there. Schwarz could also see some time there.

What do you like about Fullerton? Is this a break out year for the Dirt Bags?
via

Kendall Rogers:
Thomas,
I really like Fullerton’s one-two punch in Eastman and Seabold. Both guys are hard-nosed and fit perfectly with what Rick Vanderhook wants. Both have good stuff, too. The guy I’m told to keep close tabs on in big lefty John Gavin. Was told he had a strong fall and is ready to take a step forward. That could be a very solid trio, along with a scrappy offense.

What are you hearing about the Beavers pitching staff this year? Who should we watch out for? Lots of talent but not many guys who are proven weekend commodities. Sky is the limit for the Beavs if they can find the right guys there.
via
·
26 minutes ago

Aaron Fitt:
You’re exactly right, the pitching remains a question mark for Oregon State. The Beavs need Jake Thompson to put it all together this year, and I think he’s capable of having a good season in that rotation. Luke Heimlich should be a pretty solid, reliable weekend guy. And we heard pretty good things about Bryce Fehmel too. That has a shot to be a solid rotation, and I like the bullpen led by Engelbrekt and Hickey.

I’m not with you there — I kinda like the potential of this UK team. Should be a quality lineup built around Evan White, Riley Mahan, Zach Reks and Tristan Pompey (who is a real breakout candidate). And that rotation (Hjelle, Lewis, Logue) is actually pretty intriguing. Pop and Salow give you a nice duo in the bullpen. I think Kentucky is going to surprise some people.

How do you expect David Pierce’s first year in Austin to go?

Kendall Rogers:
Robert,
I actually think the Longhorns could be very good if all the pieces fall into place. Zane Gurwitz is a guy I think takes a big step forward this year as a leader and producer at the plate. Bret Boswell is a big key, too, while Austin Todd is my freshman pick to click. Really good athlete and he’s toolsy. Really like the rotation w/ Morgan Cooper leading the way, and Shugart and others should make for a solid bullpen. If the offense does anything at all this year, Texas will easily be a postseason team, IMO.

Over/Under on Seth Beer homeruns this year? Peg it at 23 for now. Are you over or under?

Aaron Fitt:
It’s so hard to sustain that kind of elite production — if you had asked this same question about JJ Schwarz last year, a lot of people probably would have taken the over, and he finished with 8 homers. As good as Beer is, I’ll take the under on 23 homers. But won’t be surprised if he tops that number either.

via

Kendall Rogers:
I love, and I mean, love what the Cajuns have this year. Leger/Lee is as good of a one-two punch as any in the country. I also think getting Colten Lee back is huge since he’s some a funky-armed guy, while Hogan Harris/Dylan Moore/Wyatt Marks and others make up what should be a strong bullpen. I think the unsung heroes will be Joe Robbins and Brenn Conrad. I think both coming back as seniors is huge, and I think both have big years.
