here goes nothing

osu 3-0 ( i expect that the loss to the duckies on tuesday served as a wake up call)

ore 2-1 (they are starting to get thier act together)

Stan 3-0 only reason UW won one last week was cuz it was rivalry

ASU 3-0 kduh!

WSU 3-0 i know nothing about the rebs but WSU has been playing failry well lately and i am biased in favor of the PAC10

ariz 3-0 really, alcorn?

What stood out to you the most this week?

for me (and im a beaver fan) its how poorly the duckies have been playing, i had expected a slight step back after last years unexpected run, but not to this extent...

Only 2 Pac 10 teams???? I can't believe that Cal, UCLA, and Stanford aren't in the mix. OSU beat a very good Cal team and I noticed that Cal dropped from the top 25 in most polls. Also, UCLA swept Oregon on some great pitching. They probably have the best Fri/Sat starters in the Country.


i would not be surprised to see them in this weeks "on the cusp" feature, although when it is all said and done, im sure all three will be in the tourney, but sweeping the duckies isnt as impressive as it sounds, as they have been struggling lately, dont get me wrong sweeping ANYONE in the pac10 is no easy feat, but the duckies havent been that great lately.

have one like and one dislike, i like that we get Fresno state in our regional a chance to show that the two losses in the beginnning of the season were flukes

the thing i dont like and this is more the NCAA than it is you guys is that even though 6 pac 10 teams woudl be in the tourney no more than 3 would be able to reach the CWS due to the super regional matchups
oregon st could potentially play UCLA and arizona state could potentially play stanford, the only one who doesnt have a pac10 team in the coresponding super regional is CAL

Ariz 2-1, WSU keeps letting me down when i pick them
Stan 2-1 ducks could take one, but thats it could just as easily be a stan sweep
ASU 2-1 this is more like wishful hoping on my part to allow the beavs some more breathing room
OSU 3-0 really hate the purple dogs
UCLA 3-0 gotta go pac10 baby!

i know we won the series, but this is the worst feeling "win" i feel as if we had lost the series with the way we colapsed. that said, at least we still have a 1.5 game lead (go trojans!) that for all intents and purposes is a 2.5 game lead thanks to the tiebreaker. beaver magic number to win outright with 6 games left is 5 if asu wins 4 if usc does today, to get a tie is 4 and 3 respectively.

as for the ncaa tourney i would love to see 3 pac10 teams make it to the CWS and would love a rematch between either OSU and ASU or OSU and UCLA in the title series, that would be epic! ( i would even root for the duckies if they made it, which aint gonna happen this year)

USC beats ASU 6-2. Beavers stay two games up on the Sun Devils. Great news for the Beavers.



thank goodness!!! of course now that has me worried about next week when we play said trojans.

just gotta remember that our magic number to clinch a tie for the pac 10 is 3, if we sweep USC it doesnt matter what ASU does and we get at least a share of the conference.

re oregon state moving down to #8 this is exactly why the rats patootie index is just that, REALLY hope the comittee takes in to consideration that (assuming the beavs hold serve the next two wks of course) they won EVERY conference series

The Beavers are playing just terrible baseball. Down 8-0 in the second inning. Ben Wetzler was atrocious. Gave up 7 runs in 1/3 of an inning.



the defense got it figured out, but the bats just arent there (barring a historic comeback by the beavs/ choke job by the trojans)

with virginia losing 2 this weekend, weve got to get our act together tomorrow

after game 2 there was plenty of movement but closer to the top only 2 points separate 1st from last now and the only difference in the top 12 is the fewest points possible good luck in game 2

at least the husky's took one from ASU, they owed us that much after the choke job we had with them last week, magic number is 2. will be rooting for UCLA this week, beavs and bruins win on friday and OSU is pac10 champs.

osu 3-0 only because i cant in good consience pick the duckies to win any games against the beavs (although they may take 1) final pac10 champs!!

ASU 2-1 with both teams 1 game back 2-1 is extremely important (to OSU) no matter who takes the series (especially if the beavs drop one) winner needs some help from the duckies to win the title

cal 2-1 both teams are playing pretty good right now but stanford has just been getting the short end of the deal lately and that will probably continue

Ariz 2-1 shoudl be a sweep but the huskies have shown that they dont give up even when down 0-2 to the two best teams in the conference (and thank god for that this last weekend)

USC 3-0 hard to go against an SC team that on consecutive weekends took 2 of 3 from both ASU and OSU and has won 5 of thier last 6 conference series especially against a cougar team that cant figure out if they are great or terrible


on a personal note, thanks DM for doing this i watched from afar when this was over on rivals and never joined in but did appreciate the banter and the good natured ribbing that takes place here and am glad that i came over to perfect game which is an excellent place for college baseball, look forward to doing this for the forseeable future.

also due to travelling this weekend i will probably not be able to post game by game standings for this week.

hope everyone has a fun safe memorial day weekend and lets see what selection monday brings!

Pac-10: POSTSEASON PREDICTIONS

borgguy
borgguy
i find myself in a very similar position to DM. not being familiar with the other teams and being a PAC10 homer i tend to overvalue the teams im familiar with, but that said here it goes

Ariz 2-2 (will beat seton hall twice and lose to aTm twice)
ASU 3-0 ( i really dont see them losing to any of these teams especially at home)
Cal 2-2 (after beating baylor, cal will surprise rice in the first game before losing two to them in the championship)
osu 3+ (after backing into a regional host that with the way we ended the season not sure we really deserved, the beavs will waltz past UALR beat creighton then lose 1 to georgia before winning it all on monday)
stan 3+ stanford will beat Kstate, lose to CSF beat Kstate again, then with appelt pitching will take 1 from CSF before losing on monday)
UCLA 3-0 (even though this is the "regional of Death" i think the bruins are starting to peak and should take care o business at home)

so i have 3 pac10 teams making it to the supers ASU OSU and UCLA

going more in depth cuz hey why not:
i think ASU can easily take 2 of 3 from anyone in the austin regional home or away
if OSU can get some help from Okst, troy or belmont and host a super regional they should be able to take care of business. if vandy wins though i dont think the beavs have the confidence to take 2 of 3 on the road right now (that might change if they sweep through the regional)
with UCLA going against the #1 overall seed in virgina (who wont lose at home in the regional, not gonna happen) i dont think they have the horses to win 2 games, i think they will win 1 out there, but not 2.

so when its all said and done i think 1 MAYBE 2 pac10 teams will make it to the new TD ameritrade park in Omaha for the CWS. the only downside to that though is that both OSU and ASU would be in the same side of the bracket so wouldnt be able to play each other for the natl championship (could work out that when they play its for a spot in the championship series, but wont be for the title)

ok so after all that, in this order it is GO BEAVS, GO PAC10 & GO ANYONE BUT VANDY!!!
