Is their a better pairing out there then Broken Arrow's Archie Bradley and Mason Hope? Especially when you throw in the fact that they will get to throw to Dylan Delso. In State Rival Owasso also has a nice combo with Dylan Bundy and Philip Wilson. They also will have an outstanding battery mate in Drew Stiner. What other schools from around the country can match up with these 2 from Oklahoma?

Great question. What sets #3 Broken Arrow apart is that they don't just have an elite 1-2 punch in Bradley and Hope but they also have several more quality arms. Nick Pettus and Tyler Kruse are also very talented pitchers and Delso can also chip in on the mound as well. It doesn't matter when you face the Tigers, you are going to see some very tough pitching.

I think that the combo of Christian Montgomery and Jared Ruxer of Lawrence Central (IN) often gets overlooked because of where they are from. As is the case with Dexter (MA) with John Maggliozzi and Barrett O'Neill. Newport (WA) has arguably the top combo in the often ignored northwest region with Cole Wiper and Jared Fisher.

Then of course there are the more obvious ones that get a lot of ink, such as: 7th ranked Spanish Fork with Kayden Porter and James Langel (if he comes back healthy),31st ranked Rockwall Heath (Jake Thompson, Jovan Hernandez) and Parkview Baptist (LA) who Ben Collman discussed yesterday in 3 Up/3 Down as a team that just missed the top 50.

A very underrated staff is Mariner (FL) with Alex Santana who many see as a 3B prospect (though I was very impressed with his ability on the mound at the 2011 World Showcase in January) combining with junior Jason Carmichael.

An up and coming 1-2 punch to watch for 2012 is Tampa Jesuit (FL) with Lance McCullers (#1 prospect in class of 2012) and Max Beerman. Another is El Dorado (CA), who I discussed in 3 Up/3 Down, although I see Chris Rivera's future as an elite position player.

I know I'm leaving out several big ones here but these are the ones who immediately come to mind. Let me know who I'm missing so I can have that same feeling I get while watching Jeopardy (the "oh yeah, duh, I knew that" feeling).

I would agree with tgold on this one. Being from a northern state I think that we sometimes get left out. These two may be the best 1-2 punch in the country!

Here are some more combos that come to mind:
Louisville St. Xavier- Matt Spalding, Ryan Loehnert, Ian Thompkins, Zach Clooney may give them the best 4-man rotation in the nation
Southlake Carroll, TX-John Curtiss-up to 93 in Round Rock last weekend and LHP Kyle Bailey
Spain Park, AL- Chris Ellis and Colton Freeman-showed some of the best raw arm strength at this year National Underclass Showcase
Downers Grove South, IL-Nick Burdi and Matt Wivinis
Cathedral Catholic, CA- Daniel Camerena and Stephen Gonsalves, one of the top 2013 pitchers in the country

Cuthbertson HS (NC) has Peter Hendel (2011 LHP - UNC), Preston Morrison (2011 RHP - TCU), and Cameron Tekker (2012 RHP - UVa). That's a pretty good punch!

Pickerington Central HS out of Pickerington, Ohio has some solid pitchers and should be a force. Isaac Beller 2011 (Wright State) mid 80's, Nick Jensen-Clagg 2012 - Uncommitted, mid 80's flirts in upper 80's, Evan Jensen 2012, uncommitted, mid 80's fantastic CU.
