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.
