I sent a note on D1 Baseball's Weekly Chat about NU and the CAA ...

Guest: What are your thoughts on the CAA? Northeastern had an impressive journey in Florida after getting swept in Alabama to start the season.

Aaron Fitt: I like that Northeastern team — I regarded them as a potential at-large team heading into the season, the No. 2 team in the CAA behind UNCW, and I still feel that way. Winning a series at FAU is big, and sweeping a road set at USF is a nice weekend too, even though USF hasn’t been great (having to play Florida for three games won’t help your winning percentage). Charleston is off to a great start with a talented young club, we’ll see if they’ve got staying power, but I do like their talent. And JMU was kind of my sleeper team heading into the year, really like their lineup. I think the CAA has a chance to be a two-bid league this year, and I see those four teams as the contenders.
