FSU’s new CF??

The Tallahassee Democrat has an article in Jan. 18th edition about the expected new center fielder for the Seminoles. His name is Ruairi O’Connor who is entering his redshirt sophomore season. He missed the 2006 season with a wrist injury but in 2005 he contributed with in 40 games including 14 starts.

Rivals.com Top 25

Rivals has released their top 25 for the upcoming season. The top team is Rice with UNC, University of South Carolina, Virginia, and Miami rounding out the top 5. I believe that Miami is a little overrated being in the top 5 but we will have to see how the season falls to find out the truth. It is nice to see 3 ACC teams in the Top 5.

Another Clemson Preview

Scout.com checks in with a very good preview on the Clemson Tigers this upcoming season. Clemson is ranked number 2 in the pre-season poll by Collegiate Baseball. They lost about half of the starting lineup from last season and the entire starting rotation. They will be able to fill one of those starting pitcher spots in David Kopp. He showed the College Baseball Blog staff a very live arm with a 6.1 inning emergency appearance last year at Boston College. He also had a very good pitching record last year with 6-2 record and a 4.32 ERA in mid-week starts last season. The other two starting positions are expected to be filled by two of the following: P.J. Zocchi, Sean Clark, and Ryan Hinson.
