You assume intelligence for them, and foresightedness...wrong.
No offense intended.
Didn't say it was hard to do. Should be easy to do. But historically they've tried to keep #2's close to home and send #3's farther away. Another reason why I dislike the whole regionalization thing. Seed them hard 1-16 and then more loosely but carefully 17-32 and start placing. It isn't like it was in 1980. Teams travel.
Just looked at what they did by way of projection for Kentucky....nasty. Put a pissed off Virginia team in their regional as a #2 and paired them with their big brother Louisville for a Super. That's a filthy deal for Kentucky if it happens.
While we all wait for the bracket tomorrow, who follows recruiting and the draft?
In 2018, Frogs need to replace the following starters:
C (Skoug probably gone/draft)
2B (Warner graduated)
SS (Merrill and Hesse graduated)
3B (Barzilli graduated)
CF (Brown graduated, Williams graduated)
Howard/Traver (Janczak is draft eligible, too, IIRC)
Humphreys looking like the next man behind the plate
Wade probably slides to CF / Ingraham to RF? Or CW in RF with ML sharing 1st with Baker?
No clue where we are with the infielders. Franson at 3b?
Looks like we have several freshman inf coming in - https://www.perfectgame.org/Rankings/Recruiting/CollegeCommits.aspx?ID=1742&g=2017
Does Shane Baz project as a starter? Looks like he will probably end up in FW, though it may be a close call -- he wants college but could be drafted pretty high http://www.minorleagueball.com/2017/2/23/14697056/shane-baz-scouting-report-2017-mlb-draft
Need infielders badly.... and for either King or Eissler to figure it out
Need pitchers badly and if they can't pitch move them to the infield
I suspect that our lineup next year will include some players we haven't even heard about yet from the juco ranks Also, we'll have to grab another catcher even if Humphreys is the man behind the plate. As for CW in RF....only if he is forced to catch 400 fly balls a day from a right handed batter and 500 a day from a left-handed batter. Personally, I don't think he has anywhere near the arm needed to play RF.
Rain chances next week for FTW
80% on Thursday
60% Friday through Sunday
50% on Monday
Get those TCU groundskeepers some extra feed.....may need it.
Swimmerbabe posting over on Texags
"Baseball America has yall headed to Clemson."
Noted with interest the use of the word "y'all"....perhaps she doesn't identify as closely with Ag as some have suspected.
Probably because they aren't as good this year.
Just re-watched Curry's slam and Thor's HR in CWS
Maybe the best two clutch homer's at CWS…in my opinion of course
ITS POST SEASON TIME !!!!!
Should have known that wasn't going to happen since George Frazier kept saying WVU would end up at Virginia's regional.
Saw Russell Smith pitch at Midlothian. He was good.
Don't forget there is a shortstop Adam Oviedo coming in from Alvarado.
Warren Morris was pretty clutch.

Never change killerfrogs, never change.
He was defending you. Your voice is missed here.
I was saying that with a chuckle/ruefulness
This season has been...complicated. mostly following via twitter. Can't keep getting mad at the app/my tv has been mostly uncooperative among working later and many other variables :/
