[Comment From Steve LSteve L: ] 

If Larnach hits 15 bombs, 25 doubles and hits .360, where do you see him getting drafted?

Monday February 19, 2018 2:04 Steve L
 
Kendall Rogers: 

Steve — There was some serious buzz about Larnach amongst the scouts in Surprise this weekend, at least the ones I talked to. I don’t want to set a round on Larnach, because if he has a ridiculously good spring, all bets are off. But he could easily be a top couple of round bat with a good season. He just looks like a different guy – so confident and the powerful stroke is finally shown. He looks much more physical to me, too, body-wise, but I know his weight hasn’t fluctuated. It was special to see him play at that level over the weekend.

[Comment From Concerned ToreroConcerned Torero: ] 

I saw Nick Sprengel didn’t pitch this weekend for USD. Have you guys heard anything on him? Hurt or just tired arm?

Monday February 19, 2018 2:04 Concerned Torero
 
Aaron Fitt: 

Sounds like Sprengel is working through some control problems. Hopefully we’ll get some more clarity on that soon — I’ll be in San Diego this weekend.

Where do Singer Kowar and Dyson rank this season among starting rotations?

It’s the best rotation in college baseball. Period.

[Comment From OmahaOmaha: ] 

My biggest surprise of the weekend was the way Notre Dame went down to LSU and dominated the Tigers except for giving up 2 homeruns Friday night,what was the biggest surprises of the weekend for both of you?

Monday February 19, 2018 2:06 Omaha
 
Kendall Rogers: 

I think Notre Dame over LSU was the obvious surprise. The thing that good out to me wasn’t just the fact ND won the series, but beat up on LSU in the series finale. I got really good reports on Nick Podkul and Matt Vierling, among others. I also was told that LSU needs Hunter Feduccia back ASAP. It’ll be interesting to see if he comes back against Texas this weekend. They desperately need him.

  Kendall Rogers

[Comment From BobBob: ] 

Kendall, what concerns you most about the Beavers after watching a few games this weekend?

Monday February 19, 2018 2:10 Bob
 
Kendall Rogers: 

Bob — Honestly, I didn’t see much about the Beavs that I would be concerned about. The bullpen is in solid shape and while Fehmel wasn’t dominant — he was good enough. Offensively, the Beavs hit much better with RISP in the weekend finale, and I know that was something the coaching staff wanted to see after the first two days. I really liked what the lineup showed me over the weekend. Madrigal, Kwan, Larnach, and Adley Rutschman did a terrific job of going the other way with some big hits.

  Kendall Rogers
2:13
[Comment From WoodshedkingWoodshedking: ] 

Do you think Nick Sandlin can have sustained success as a Friday night starter for Southern Miss?

Monday February 19, 2018 2:13 Woodshedking
 
Kendall Rogers: 

He definitely could. I got really good reports on Sandlin. Was told he was 90-92 and up to 93 with his fastball with a really good slider. If he can sustain that the duration of the season, watch out. Could be a pretty special season for the hard-nosed vet.

  Kendall Rogers
2:13
[Comment From CHouse132CHouse132: ] 

Stanford scored 16 runs over the weekend against a solid CSF pitching staff (average of 5.3). Stanford should win a lot of games if they can average 5+ runs a game. This is a weaker lineup than last year for Stanford. Is there reason for optimism that David Esquer is altering the proverbial “Stanford approach”? Stanford fans would love to see more offense and I am sure the scouts would too.

Monday February 19, 2018 2:13 CHouse132
 
Aaron Fitt: 

We talked about this today in the podcast — I think this Stanford lineup has a chance to surprise people if guys like Daschbach and Bakst can do what they did this weekend. Those are very talented sophomores, and if they can perform up to their raw ability, all of a sudden this lineup has more firepower and more depth. And I’m eager to see what impact Esquer will have on the offensive approach.

[Comment From PetePete: ] 

When deciding on this 2nd week’s rankings, how do you balance the question of results in week 1 vs.pre-season expectations? It seems like the expectations are very much outweighing actual performance, with a few teams losing games to unranked opponents with little (or no) movement. Or, for example, Duke went 1-2 against a ranked opponent at their field, while LSU went 1-2 against an unranked opponent at home, yet LSU is still in while Duke is out? I’m just curious how you balance potential vs. production in these early season polls.

Monday February 19, 2018 2:19 Pete
 
Aaron Fitt: 

I always say it like this: picture it like a see-saw. The preseason rankings, the top 25 is based 100 percent on our projection — our evaluation of a team’s talent, experience and upside. Over the course of the season, as we have more game results to base our evaluations upon, that see-saw tilts, and by the postseason it’s 100 percent based on “results”. But early in the year, we still trust our evaluations. We made adjustments in our rankings — Mississippi State, LSU and Fullerton all took tumbles, but we’re not giving up on them either; it’s just one weekend. Baseball is a marathon, not a spring.

Duke was No. 25, so it had nowhere lower to go but out. There’s no shame in losing two of three on the road to a ranked team, but it was discouraging that the Blue Devils were pounded pretty soundly in the two losses — that raises questions about their pitching. But as for teams losing one game but still winning the series (like UNC and TCU — who both won series on the road against good teams)… college baseball is about winning series. If you win 2 out of 3, ESPECIALLY on the road, you’re almost never going to drop in our rankings, unless you had a rotten midweek. Usually a 2-2 week if enough to keep a team steady in the rankings, as long as it won its weekend series.

[Comment From CBCB: ] 

Stetson has a lot of talent on the mound which could bode well if they make it to a regional (as they should being the favorite in the ASUN). Any chance they have enough talent to make a surprise super regional appearance? or is that a pipe dream?

Monday February 19, 2018 2:20 CB
 
Aaron Fitt: 

Definitely not a pipe dream. If you’ve got two pitchers like Logan Gilbert and Brooks Wilson, boy, you’ve got a real chance to win a regional — and even win a super. Dominant starting pitching can carry a team a long way, and those two guys are really good. Gilbert, of course, has a chance to be one of the top picks in the draft, but he also performed at a very high level all last spring. He’s capable of beating any team in the country.

  Aaron Fitt
2:26
[Comment From PackFanPackFan: ] 

Johnny Piedmonte and Brian Brown put together 2 very solid starts for NC State in a DH Friday. These 2 are very solid ACC starters. Finding a consistent 3rd starter could be an adventure tho. Who eventually wins the Sunday job if you had to bet right now?

Monday February 19, 2018 2:26 PackFan
 
Aaron Fitt: 

I know David Harrison struggled, but I still believe he’s got a real chance to be the answer — it’s a lefty who can touch 90 or 91 with very good feel for the changeup, just needs to tighten up that breaking ball, from what i saw in the fall. He’s a really key piece for this pitching staff. Interesting that they used Bienlien at the end of the game yesterday — I didn’t expect that. Really thought he’d be a rotation guy. I do think Bienlien could thrive in the pen as he did yesterday, but do they really need him there when they’ve got O’Donnell and Staley and Clenney (who I really like) and Reid Johnston? I’d probably try Bienlien in a starting role.

  Aaron Fitt

[Comment From Matt – TampaMatt – Tampa: ] 

Florida looked very comfortable this weekend to kick off their defense. 6 home runs over the 3 games and 36 runs scored was a nice sight for a team that last season at times would struggle for runs (I do get that it was Siena and not Vanderbilt/LSU). If the 2018 Gators have a more formidable offensive output this season, combined with strong starting pitching, does this team have the makeup to be stronger than the team from last year?

Monday February 19, 2018 2:29 Matt – Tampa
 
Aaron Fitt: 

Yeah, very encouraging weekend for that Florida offense (albeit against a MAAC pitching staff, as you pointed out). I’ve got Keenan Bell pegged as a real pick to click, and nice to see him hit a couple balls out of the yard this weekend. Horvath and Reese are key veterans that they’re hoping can take on more prominent roles in the offense this year, and they both had great weekends. Wait until Austin Langworthy gets going — I’m telling you, that guy is going to rake this year; I have the utmost confidence in that prediction. Anyway, the Gators are No. 1 for a reason, and it’s not just because they won it all last year, and it’s not just because of their pitching (though that’s the biggest reason). We like their position player group too.

[Comment From rangry waverangry wave: ] 

what did you make of the 3 game sweep by Tulane this week end///

Monday February 19, 2018 2:31 rangry wave
 
Kendall Rogers: 

Rangry — That was a really nice weekend for the Green Wave. Honestly, my hunch on this team wasn’t overly positive after what I heard throughout fall workouts. But this team played very well against a high quality Wright State club. Sal Gozzo stepped up, and guys like him doing that is huge for this season — they have to give Grant Witherspoon some help. We’ll find out A LOT more this weekend at Ole Miss. Huge potential statement weekend could be coming.

  Kendall Rogers
2:33
[Comment From John GJohn G: ] 

Texas took 2/3 from a very good ULL squad. LSU lost 2/3 to an improved Notre Dame squad. LSU will probably be ticked off when the Horns come to town this weekend. Does LSU bounce back and win the series against UT? As a Texas fan should I be expecting a series win at Alex Box Stadium? That seemed like a stretch just a week ago.

Monday February 19, 2018 2:33 John G
 
Kendall Rogers: 

John — Going into the season, I had the one chalked up as an LSU series win, but the reports I’ve gotten out of BR on the Tigers over the weekend are bad. Real bad. You’d think LSU will come out like fire-breathing dragons this weekend, but you just never know how a brand new team’s chemistry is. I think the big key to the weekend is LSU stabilizing the catcher position. They desperately need Feduccia back. For now, I think I lean Texas in this series — but talk to me in a few days when I get the pulse of the LSU locker room. I’m definitely concerned about the Tigers.

  Kendall Rogers
2:33
[Comment From RyanRyan: ] 

Seems like a good weekend of baseball down at UCF. Thoughts on UVA and how they will fair this year without Simmons and Murdock?

Monday February 19, 2018 2:33 Ryan
 
Aaron Fitt: 

Talked about this on the podcast today too (at the end). I came away feeling pretty good about UVa’s chances to have a typical UVa year (that is, be right there in the mix to host a regional). The veteran position players are really good players — obviously McCarthy, but I’m also buying in on Andy Weber and Caleb Knight to become stars in the ACC this year, and Justin Novak is a really good player down in the bottom third of the order. I think you’ll probably see more of Devin Ortiz in the lineup going forward too — he stung the ball a couple times in his debut on Sunday (but they’ve had him working more on his pitching lately — he’s got a great arm, and should be a key piece of this staff too). Better days are ahead for Alex Tappen, who has exciting tools but struggled this weekend. And the rotation should be rock-solid if Evan Sperling can build off yesterday’s success — obviously he’s a key piece, and he looked good. Casey did too; he should be Mr. Reliable, not dominant but competitive. I heard Lynch looked good on Friday, and I think Bennett Sousa is a great answer at the back of the bullpen. Looks to me like this should be a pretty complete team, even though they’ll miss Simmons’ bat, without question.

  Aaron Fitt
2:36
[Comment From BrianBrian: ] 

How much trouble is LSU in? Pitching looks to be a major concern which is going to be a big problem in the SEC.

Monday February 19, 2018 2:36 Brian
 
Kendall Rogers: 

Brian — My two biggest question marks going into he season were A) How Hess moves to the rotation and B) How Peterson does in the No. 3 spot. Both pitchers failed miserably over the weekend. It will be a long year in the SEC if that continues.

  Kendall Rogers
2:36
[Comment From ErikErik: ] 

What are your thoughts on the Big Ten this year? Indiana and Maryland are a clear cut above the rest, in my opinion. Who else are teams to watch?

Monday February 19, 2018 2:36 Erik
 
Aaron Fitt: 

I agree; those are the teams to beat. But also feel good about Nebraska, Iowa, Minnesota and Michigan (the Huskers and Hawkeyes had very strong first weekends too). It’s going to be a battle royale, as always, but most of the top teams in the league got off to strong starts, which is always encouraging. Keep an eye on Purdue too — made big strides last year, lots of veterans back, and a 3-0 first weekend.

  Aaron Fitt
2:38
[Comment From Go HuskersGo Huskers: ] 

What can you guys tell me about Jaxon Hallmark? Were any of the Texas big fish in on his recruitment? The ball just flies off this kid’s bat. Huskers may have gotten a gem here.

Monday February 19, 2018 2:38 Go Huskers
 
Aaron Fitt: 

Ted Silva, their recruiting coordinator, told me a couple weeks back that Hallmark kind of flew under the radar on the recruiting circuit, but that he’s a really good player who is going to make a huge difference this year. He has real tools — very athletic guy with the versatility to play a variety of positions, and an advanced feel for hitting with exciting bat speed. I agree with you — they may have found a gem.

  Aaron Fitt

[Comment From Marty SMarty S: ] 

Thoughts on the Miami Hurricanes?

Monday February 19, 2018 2:40 Marty S
 
Aaron Fitt: 

I can’t wait to get a look at Miami, with that all-freshman infield (and a redshirt freshman behind the plate). That’s a really talented, exciting group of young players, and they’ve got a ton back on the mound. I know they were bummed to lose Chris McMahon to that knee injury, but he’ll be back around midseason and will provide a further boost. In the meantime, that rotation should be strong anyway, and the bullpen is loaded with Cabezas, Bartow and Hammond leading the way. Canes are on the brink of the Top 25 for us, along with NC State. If they had swept Rutgers, they might have edge out Clemson for that last spot — we’ve got those two and NC State all clustered together in a group heading into the season, JUST outside the Top 25.

  Aaron Fitt
2:40
[Comment From Lawlis77Lawlis77: ] 

Can tech win it all without Gingery?

Monday February 19, 2018 2:40 Lawlis77
 
Kendall Rogers: 

We should know more about Gingery’s injury later today, but if they don’t have him, that is certainly a massive blow. With that said, Texas Tech is far from done if he’s out. Dylan Dusek is an experience arm, Caleb Freeman, Caleb Killian and Jake McDonald are all big-time arms, and the list goes on. Fortunately, high-quality pitching depth is a strength of this team this year …. Let’s see what happens with Gingery first, though.

  Kendall Rogers
2:43
[Comment From AdamAdam: ] 

Arkansas put up 49 runs in three games this past weekend while giving up 7. There is a lot of potential in the lineup with plenty of arms to go with it. How do you expect them to do this week in San Diego starting with Arizona?

Monday February 19, 2018 2:43 Adam
 
Kendall Rogers: 

Adam,
That was an impressive weekend, indeed. Carson Shaddy got off to a great start in the opener, and the Hogs were on fire the entire weekend. With that said, the competition level increases exponentially this weekend with Arizona, Cal Poly, SDSU and USD on the docket. I’ll go with a 3-1 record this weekend. BTW, hat tip to Keaton McKinney, who has been through a lot, but who threw a couple of innings on Sunday. It’s been a tough road back, so it’s good to see him back out there.

  Kendall Rogers
2:47
[Comment From JordanJordan: ] 

What all do you like about this Southern Miss team?

Monday February 19, 2018 2:47 Jordan
 
Kendall Rogers: 

Jordan,
The thing I always like about every Scott Berry club is their gritty and hard-nosed nature/approach. They are a real treat to watch because of that. Sandlin pitching the way he did as a starter is a total game-changer. Before, I didn’t think USM had that front-line guy that could match up with anyone … they might just have that in Sandlin. The possibilities are exciting.

  Kendall Rogers
2:51
[Comment From VegasRebelVegasRebel: ] 

Why did Southern MS jump 11+ slots for sweeping MS State (ranked 21), while Stanford only moved up 1 slot after sweeping CSF (ranked 22)? I understand that the top 10 took care of business, but surely there should not be this much of a disparity between how much the Eagles and the Card jumped.

Monday February 19, 2018 2:51 VegasRebel
 
Aaron Fitt: 

Simple “poll mechanics” — Stanford was already ranked 13th, there just wasn’t room to move them up a bunch with everybody in front of them winning. If Stanford had been outside of the Top 25, they would have jumped in around 15 also.

  Aaron Fitt
2:55
[Comment From MikeMike: ] 

Hard for mid-majors to get much love and especially this early, but keep your eyes on Jacksonville this year, big Series win over West Virginia who they really beat last year as well but we’re on the wrong side of a few tough calls

Monday February 19, 2018 2:55 Mike
 
Aaron Fitt: 

Good call; that was an eye-opening week for the Dolphins. They’ve got some guys who can swing the bat (great first weekend for Chris Gau, John Cassala and Scott Dubrule). Cassala and Gau are interesting two-way talents too; looked like Cassala gave them a strong start, and so did Tyler Santana. Jacksonville is officially on the radar…

  Aaron Fitt
2:55
[Comment From Dawg ManDawg Man: ] 

Did this past weekend give you any indication as to the progress Georgia has made to regain national prominence? The talent level seems to be better than it has been in a while.

Monday February 19, 2018 2:55 Dawg Man
 
Kendall Rogers: 

I think Georgia is a sleeper type of club to both Aaron and me. Those guys have some big-time potential — it’s just a matter of putting all the pieces together and believing. The GSU series the Bulldogs won this weekend is absolutely one that they usually would lose. But they found a way to win it with a narrow victory in the series finale. How about Chase Adkins in the finale? 8 K’s, 2 H, 0 R in 6 IP. That’s how you become a very good Sunday guy.

  Kendall Rogers
2:56
[Comment From FanFan: ] 

Where do you see Oral Roberts now after sweep of Utah? How do they project?

Monday February 19, 2018 2:56 Fan
 
Aaron Fitt: 

Lots of talent on that ORU club. They’re obviously the team to beat in the Summit, as usual, and they’ve got enough talented veterans to be dangerous in a regional as usual. We picked Utah to finish last in the Pac-12, but it’s not like the Utes are devoid of talent, and sweeping any Pac-12 team is still an accomplishment.

  Aaron Fitt
2:58
[Comment From BradBrad: ] 

Where do you see CCU at in the rankings? I was really impressed with the young arms.

Monday February 19, 2018 2:58 Brad
 
Aaron Fitt: 

Coastal is a team we debated for the last spot in the rankings this week — very strong first weekend, and our David Seifert liked what he saw from them. It sounded like Bilous’ performance was particularly encouraging, because he’s such a key guy — huge stuff, and the pitchability is coming. You’re right about those young arms, David liked what he saw from those young bullpen pieces too — Shaddon Peavyhouse and Zach McCambley were both up to 93 with good sliders.

  Aaron Fitt
2:59
[Comment From AlanAlan: ] 

Will you have a D1 writer on hand for the Rice at Stanford 4-game series this weekend, and what is your prediction?

Monday February 19, 2018 2:59 Alan
 
Aaron Fitt: 

I think Eric Sorenson was planning to go up there for that one, but I’ll have to check with him to see if that’s still the plan. Should be a great series; I liked what I saw from Rice this weekend. Gotta give Stanford the edge at home, but should be a very competitive series.

  Aaron Fitt

[Comment From BenBen: ] 

Hey guys, great to have college baseball back! Thanks for taking the time! Wondering who you guys would rate as the top 5 complete pitching staffs (starters/relievers/closer/depth) in the nation? Thanks!

Monday February 19, 2018 3:01 Ben
 
Aaron Fitt: 

Florida obviously, with three first-round talents in the rotation and a first-team All-America closer, plus Florida’s typical depth. Really like Texas Tech’s staff IF Steven Gingery is healthy; that’s huge, of course. North Carolina, Kentucky and TCU would be the others in my top five, and I think you could put 2-5 in any order you like.

  Aaron Fitt
3:02
[Comment From JimJim: ] 

How concerned should Mississippi State fans be? Obviously USM is no slouch, especially at home, but is this 2015 all over again for State or just early growing pains for a young team?

Monday February 19, 2018 3:02 Jim
 
Aaron Fitt: 

I would lean toward the latter, early growing pains, tough opponent on the road in a rowdy atmosphere — it’s way too early to panic about the Bulldogs. I have faith in Andy Cannizaro and his staff to figure out the answers there. But certainly the way they pitched this weekend was a concern… They just need those guys to perform better, plain and simple. Still like the pieces though.

  Aaron Fitt
3:03
[Comment From EagsBy11EagsBy11: ] 

How do you feel about USM pitching wise once Colt Smith and Walker Powell are healthy enough to play?

Monday February 19, 2018 3:03 EagsBy11
 
Aaron Fitt: 

Yeah, impressive that they did what they did without those two guys available, because they should be significant contributors on this staff, in some capacity. I will say that Southern Miss resoundingly answered any of our preseason questions about its pitching, and we love the position player group. Looks like the Golden Eagles are in store for another big year.

  Aaron Fitt
3:05
[Comment From Ben ContentBen Content: ] 

Do you think Rice has the potential to join the top 25 in the near future?

Monday February 19, 2018 3:05 Ben Content
 
Aaron Fitt: 

Yep, not too far out of the rankings — I like the talent and the balance. We’ll see how some of their young position players develop and how the bullpen settles in; not a great weekend for that bullpen, but there were certainly some glimmers of hope (Parthasarthy was good, Amador was pretty good, Gayle looked electric even though his command faltered a bit, and Kravetz will pitch a lot better than he did this weekend, no cause for alarm on him).

  Aaron Fitt
3:08
[Comment From JeffJeff: ] 

What are your thoughts on UConn?

Monday February 19, 2018 3:08 Jeff
 
Aaron Fitt: 

I like UConn! Still think Cate and Feole will be a dominant one-two punch, and I heard Cate’s stuff was good this weekend, he just made a couple of mistakes. Feole sounded really good, and he’s got a great arm too. Very athletic lineup with a lot of speed and a couple pretty high-level talents up the middle in Susi and Prato. Definitely a regional-caliber club, and a team that I suspect will play its way into our Top 25 at some point, probably sooner rather than later. Got some very good power arms in the bullpen, too, led by PJ Poulin.

Any A10 surprises from the weekend? Fordham pitching staff with 43 ks, St. louis and davidson staff looks strong as well.

Monday February 19, 2018 3:09 Dave
 
Kendall Rogers: 

The surprise to me is that VCU, Saint Louis and URI, three of the better teams in the league, really struggled. VCU got swept by Liberty, Saint Louis went 1-2 and as expected, URI got swept by A&M. Not a good start to the year for the league.

  Kendall Rogers
3:16
[Comment From JohnJohn: ] 

Kendall, I was a bit disappointing with Kevin Able’s first pitching experience yesterday – he gave up 4 hits in just over an inning. Do you see him as an eventual starter for the Beavers?

Monday February 19, 2018 3:16 John
 
Kendall Rogers: 

John — Be patient with Abel. I saw someone with a very good pitcher’s body with potentially electric stuff. I had the fastball at 89-92, and the curveball is going to be a big-time pitch. However, he needs to work on his command of those pitches. That’s why he’s not in the rotation. Once he figures those things out, he’ll be just fine.

  Kendall Rogers

[Comment From BobBob: ] 

Kendall or Aaron, how do you think Luke Heimlich should proceed regarding his past issue?

Monday February 19, 2018 3:19 Bob
 
Kendall Rogers: 

Bob — Here’s the thing. My interactions with Luke (interviews and such) have always been pleasant. I have nothing against the kid. IF he did it, I hope he found his faith and is now a much different guy. IF he didn’t do it, I think he should explain the why and more. He needs to clear his name, and hiding behind it all is NOT the way to do that. As a matter of fact, if he waits to open up until, lets’ say, May, it will look like he’s just trying to get drafted instead of being sincere.

I think we’ve been very fair to Luke. I see both sides of the coin here.

Time to panic with LSU or Cal State Fullerton?

Monday February 19, 2018 3:22 Eric Simmons

Not time to panic, but on the worry-o-meter, I would have Fullerton at like a 3 (not worried) and LSU at about a 6 (they need a strong weekend).
