Baseball America had a chat today about the upcoming season. They address many different topics including the ACC with some discussion about Andrew Brackman and Virginia’s pitching among other topics. It is a pretty lengthy chat with Aaron Fitt and can be read here.
Baseball America has released a Pre-Season Top 50 for the upcoming season. The article is in PDF format and can be read here.
Since there is very little news coming out of the College Baseball World, I thought I would drop some links for your guys to enjoy from PGCrossChecker.com. They have posted a very nice article about the 2007 Recruiting Classes. I also have found a link to an article from them about the top 100 prospects from the CCBL from this past summer. I think the ratings are little off since I did not see the CCBL Co-Pitcher of the Year in the Top 100 in Terry Doyle (maybe I missed his name). I have also linked the Baseball America Top 30 from the CCBL also.

I am currently working on a season preview that should be ready in January so look forward to that.
The Baylor Bears recruiting class has been rated number 1 in the nation by Baseball America. The reason for this is that the 2005 CWS run gave the program some national exposure and positive press. The Baylor staff was fighting to get rid of the stigma from the basketball tragedy in 2003. It looks like they have overcame the challenge.
There are also some news and notes in tea article about UNC reloading and Oregon State shuffling up their rotation for next year.
