Favorite: South Carolina (45-14) Last 10 games 6-4
How can you not pick the Gamecocks? The defending champs may be without their best player, Jackie Bradley, but since Bradley got hurt on April 23rd the Gamecocks have gone 15-6 overall and 9-4 in SEC which is not too bad. One of the big reason’s is their pitching staff with and impressive team ERA of 2.66 and holding teams to a .230 average. The staff is lead by #1 LHP Michael Roth who in 15 starts is 11-3 with a very impressive 1.17 ERA in 107.2 IP. Roth is not the only arm on the staff as Freshman RHP Forrest Koumas is 6-1, 3.13 ERA, 63.1 IP, 53 H, 56 K and Sophmore Closer Matt Price is 5-3, 2.47 ERA, 15 sv. SR RHP John Taylor is having an outstanding season 4-1, 1.08 ERA and opponents are only hitting .173 off him. Leading the offense is Sophmore 1B Christian Walker who is hitting .357, 18 2Bs, 9 HR, 57 RBI and SR INF Scott Wingo .327, 4 HR, 25 RBI. Continue reading

Here are some of my thoughts from college baseball action that took place on March 29th.
- Congrats to Will Roberts of Virginia for throwing a perfect game on Tuesday against the George Washington Colonials. Roberts struck out 10 batters getting three flyouts and 14 groundouts. The perfect game was only the 19th in NCAA Division 1 baseball history at any length and the first by a UVA pitcher in school history. It was also the first in Division 1 since 2002. Interesting enough, the second to last sentence of the George Washington press release is the first mention they make about the perfect game being tossed. Continue reading
