Baseball America is very ACC biased, and Kendall...as much as I really like his stuff (I really do so don't blast me here), often seems a little east coast/ anyone from the state of Texas bias.

That being said, we are 1 week into the season and, aside from an implosion like Indiana, dropping a single game in a series wouldn't justify too much movement (aside from dropping 1 or 2 because another team swept a top 25 team on the road).

Really cool, he was fun to watch when they were in the WAC and I lived in Hawaii.

Ben Wetzler Suspension: 20% of games

NCAA just handed Wetzler a 20% suspension, he is eligible to be back March 2nd, the last game against Wright State. He will miss the rest of the BIG10/Pac12 tourney and at least 3 of the 4 games in the series against Wright State.

In my opinion any penalty is unjust, 20% is harsh, but it could've been worse.

Yeah, my frustration exists on different levels.

First, it's a stupid rule to begin with as you are asking kids to figure out if $500,000 and a small contract is worth forgoing Senior Year and a possible higher pick.

Second is the lack of consistency with policing the horrible rule the NCAA has...yeah I feel burned because it's our guy that got tattled on but there are many others doing this on a constant basis.

Thirdly the shadiness of the Phillies organization knows no limit. How would the Phillies feel if fans stopped coming to games because they can't win a world series in a given year? Would they ignore a player on PED's as long as he's on their team? The whole sour grapes thing is childish and completely unnecessary in tee-ball let alone the MLB.

I hope Aaron Fitt is right and that organization gets blackballed on some level.

RD is confused because the Ducks 8 wins have come against Hawai'i, LMU, and Portland. So basically they are 0-1 vs good teams.

BB and I couldn't figure it out. Didn't hear an explanation either. Peterson is our Sac/Bunt specialist, seems like you'd want him in the 2 or 5/6 slot.

Yeah, looks like they scrapped the extra cameras and went lower quality than last year. Maybe they realized that they no longer get paid for these streams and they don't want it hurting attendance. Not that it would, all lower level is sold out this year and most of the upper as well.

Tough loss today, nice pitching by the Ducks (being serious). Cal State Fullerton, despite their 3 losses (to Washington State, USC, and San Francisco), isn't bad this year. The Ducks (though it's still early) may have the same problem as last year. They were unable to win a series against a ranked opponent, the offense again looks shaky against decent pitching. I'm sorry for harping on you RD, just an easy target after puffing out your chest over the Beavs after 2 weeks (especially with the Beavs dealing with the Wetzler situation)...

I'll go on record saying the Ducks will either host a regional or get a favorable draw as a very high 2 seed. I just can't see them getting a national seed without the offense.

Yeah, with Wetzler being gone we've struggled to find the 3rd guy in the rotation. Now that he's back we'll have Wetzler, Moore, then Fry...we should be good to go.

I'll reserve judgment until I see Wetzlers rust tomorrow. But I think Wetzler Moore Fry in that order. Schultz should be midweek.

I tend to respect the USA Today Coaches poll because the voters are closest to the game, but don't always agree with the drastic changes that occur.

Really enjoy seeing teams like Sam Houston State get respect in most polls.

The polls are largely irrelevant this time of the year (aside from building hype in media departments at school, and to us fans). I do feel that when these polls recognize teams that aren't household names it is big for the sport and the kids, I tend to root for those teams as well.

Our weakness is definitely relief pitching, bullpen is still finding itself. I hate Yeskie, but, I've been impressed with his pitching management so far this year. I haven't got the feeling that a pitcher is being left in 4 batters too late.

I would assume it would be Moore then Fry... that would leave the only question mark about game 4. The good news about that question mark is NIU should be pretty spent on their bullpen options.

Moore was listed as the starter for yesterday's game. If Moore does pitch, I could actually see our #4 pitching the second game and holding Fry until tomorrow just to hold rest consistency as 3 game series are coming up.
