- Florida Gulf Coast managed to stay ranked. I can't believe that, as they looked pretty average this week against some low end competition.

- North Florida made a big move up this week.

- Mercer has a monster test on Tuesday @ Georgia Tech.

No offense but two one run losses hardly say "fraud" to me. FAU is 6-5 with losses to Miami (FL), Alabama, NC State and Coastal Carolina. Manhattan is terrible, but no offense everyone can lose a game by a single run. Just for reference, Mercer was shut out at home by Alabama State and while Alabama State has a winning record...look who they have played. #2 Arkansas lost to Pacific (4-6) by a run, are they a fraud? (5-7) San Francisco beat #11 Arizona...is Arizona a fraud? I am just saying losing a one run game is hardly enough for "fraud" status...if they continually lose game after game...then maybe. Don't let a game here and there blur the vision especially in baseball.

Ok maybe "fraud" was too strong of a word. I just wasn't impressed with their Manhattan series. Could have easily gone 2-2 at home. Scored an average of 3 runs a game. You're right that baseball can change drastically in the short term, so let's see how they do this week.

Had to add Mercer's first ever National Ranking. Checking in at #28 in the Top 30 poll. FGCU is #29 in the same poll. http://www.collegebaseballdaily.com/2013...march-4th/

It is an impressive stat for the A-SUN: Only 8 conferences are represented in the Top 30. The Atlantic Sun has 2 teams in it.

- Florida Gulf Coast played 1 game last week, and lost to an NAIA school.
--- Even so, FGCU remains ranked at #26. Interesting to note, the mid major poll places Mercer 3 spots ahead of FGCU.

- ETSU's RPI has been gradually on the rise.

- Stetson's record isn't too bad, but their RPI is BAD.

RE: Baseball by the Numbers - March 18
I missed an update, but here's the April 1st. FGCU was ranked this week and the week I missed, so that means they've been in the polls 6 weeks now. Yet they continue to rank below Mercer in the Mid-Major poll. A-Sun standings are tight as they usually are. These teams seem to "beat up" on each other and not allow a single team or two to run away with it.

Mercer sweeps FGCU. It will be interesting to see how this impacts rankings. All season FGCU has had the nod over Mercer. I can't see how they justify that now.

As a baseball fan, what about UNF? They are first place with the league's best offense and a pitching staff that from my understanding has been missing two weekend starters for the majority of the year (I think they actually pitched in relief this weekend). The Ospreys already have series wins over Mercer and ETSU so that's essentially an extra game in their pocket.

This league could have multiple teams this year.
