As we head to Hoover…

First, let me say it has been way too long since my last post.  Work keeps getting in the way.

As we head into the final curve of the regular season in SEC baseball let’s take a look at “who’s hot and who’s not” as we head into Hoover and the SEC baseball tournament next week:

Stone cold

Tennessee and Alabama will watch from the sidelines as they didn’t make the field.  Both teams had challenging seasons, but I suspect we will see the same leadership at each school as we head into the next season.


Georgia and Auburn have not ended the season on high notes and Ole Miss is also on life support as they try to salvage a game today in Nashville.  The Mildcats of Kentucky are also creeping along after learning that winning 22 in a row over sub-par competition doesn’t do much when you get into the conference season.


Florida, and South Carolina are always doing well and they are ending the season on high notes.  Arkansas is also doing OK, but they are not the stalwart we all through they would be earlier in the season.


Mississippi State and Vanderbilt are playing their best baseball at the right time.  The kiddie corps at Vandy is coming of age (razors have been issued) and they will be a force in the tournament in Hoover.

I so look forward to the tourney next week and hope to see you there when Vandy plays LSU in the finals next Sunday.

Until then, enjoy your baseball.

    LSU just defeated #2 South Carolina in Columbia, SC to clinch the SEC regular season championship for the 15th time. Vandy caught the Tigers reeling from the loss of their starting catcher Ty Ross last weekend due to an emergency appendectomy performed the morning of their first game and stunned LSU by taking the series.

    If Vandy does make it to the final game, and I hope your prediction is correct Dan as it would be a great final game and my desired matchup, LSU will be ready for the kiddie Dores this time and I predict take the game 4-3.
