I don't think the weekend of April 7,8 and 9 has been filled yet.

For what it's worth Baseball America projected Kent as MAC champ and a number 4 seed in 2017.

The team looked pretty impressive over the first two games. Looks like they'll have lots of positives to build on from this first series.

HOLY 9TH INNING!!! 4 runs in the top of the 9th on 2 doubles and a triple. Team gets the sweep of Belmont. Good start of the season with a blowout win, close win in game two and then a come back win.

I know it's pretty meaningless but what the hell its good to see Kent is number 5 in today's RPI rankings.

Which RPI do you find most reliable? I see a few out there. I wish baseball had more video feeds. I love our baseball team.

I used Warren Nolans but I have no idea if it's more or less accurate than others.

RE: 2017 Baseball Roster & Schedule
All the RPI sites use pretty much the same formulas -- record, opponents' record, opponents' opponents' record, with home wins and away losses weighted .4 and road wins and home losses weighted 1.6.

Other systems take other things into account, like margin of victory, record over last 10 games, etc.

RPI is horribly unreliable early in a season.

Actually there are subtle differences in RPI formulas. The one the NCAA uses gives bonus points and penalties for certain things. Most if not all of these differences are not made public and are used to claim that their formula is best. It's more than likely smoke and mirrors but they do tweak the formula.

Won the game on Friday, split the games yesterday, hopefully they win the game today to close out the weekend series @ FIU.

The LSU pitching transfer has to sit out this year per Allen Moff of the RC.

The junior college transfer outfielder, who started his career @ University of Arizona, is starting to get some at bats in LF, sharing time with Hawkins.

Here is the link to statistics through 6 games: http://www.kentstatesports.com/cumestats...&year=2017

Next weekend the team heads to Wake Forest, for 2 games vs Wake Forest and a game vs Quinnipiac & Radford University.

Pulled off the victory with another game coming down to needing the 9th inning.

A combined 2-hitter for Wollershiem and Havekost, with Havekost making his collegiate debut. A very impressive debut at that. Given the pitching efforts through these first 8 games, it could be quite a while before the true depth of this pitching squad is known.

Well, after Saturday and Sunday I should probably retract the last sentence from my previous post. Hopefully, that was just a bit of a bump in the road but the team will need to develop consistency.

RE: 2017 Baseball Roster & Schedule
While you surely don't expect them to go undefeated through the non-conference schedule, losing three games (two blowouts against a painfully average Wake Forest team and a head-scratching two-run loss to Quinnipiac) in a four-game weekend is not the way to ensure there is no repeat of 2016. You would think this group especially knows how important these early season games are.

Is Dylan Rosa injured? He didn't play in any of the games this weekend, unless I missed it.

I think he may be...arm, wrist, hand?

While I was really looking forward to seeing live baseball, looks like it was definitely a good call to cancel the home opener and today's game!

They don't have orange balls to use on days like these?

Charles Finley (if anybody remembers him) would have been prepared.
