If you guys win tonight, you'll have to come right back and play again in the 4th game of the day, which would likely go past midnight like last night's 4th game of the day did.

Tough break with all the weather-related problems.

Yep ya did. I underestimated them because of their fairly weak non-conference schedule and the fact that they play on turf.

Stupid of me. They've got hitters and arms for days. That serves any team well.

Also, FYI, this will be the final game of the night regardless of who wins. The elimination game will take place tomorrow at 1, followed by the first championship game at 4:30.

If there's a game 2 of the final, it'll take place Sunday at noon.

Congrats on the win. Tomorrow's game should be a doozie, though I fear we have no pitching left.

We're not winning this title. Our route to the championship was a bye and our top 2 starters getting us to Saturday undefeated. Losing to Delaware was our death knell. Much like it has been for the loser of Game 7 in all but one tournament since this format started.

It all depends who starts for us. I have to believe it's going to be Mike Fitzgerald.

Anyone else we could start would be sophomores and freshman. At that ball yard and your lineup would be trouble.

Going to be tough for either one of us to take down the Blue Chickens at this point.

RE: CAA Tournament
NU beats CofC in an elimination game 8-5 to move on.

NU will face #2 UNCW in another elimination game in front of their home crowd at 1pm.

The best part...ITS ON TV! It supposed to be televised on NESN Plus, in the NYC area on SNY and on CSN Mid-Atlantic.

The winner faces Delaware later today also on TV.

The winner of NU/UNCW has to beat Delaware twice (once on Saturday and the title game on Sunday) to win the championship.

RE: CAA Tournament
Despite the disappointing way NU ended the season, its was still a good year.

They got to experience what it's like to be the hunted in this tourney and now they know what to expect.

Thanks to Cam Hanley, Max Burt, Mike Fitzgerald, Pat Madigan, Nick Fanneron, Jimmy Hand, Nate Borges, David Hopkins and Will Jahn for their time at NU.

But as good as most of them were, they can be replaced.

SS Max Burt might be the toughest because of his defense, but NU has Ian Fair who Glavine redshirted and really likes. NU will have to make due with his errors but I think he'll be a good one next year.

1B Cam Hanley's production will be missed, but last year when he missed most of the year with an injury, Jake Farrell filled in admirably and will be expect to pick up the slack.

Brian Christian will be our Friday ace. After him we have RHP Kyle Murphy, RHP Dave Steihl, RHP Tom Githens, LHP Sean Mellen and LHP Andrew Misaiszek to fill in the last two weekend slots and midweek.

Steihl, Githens and Mellen, all freshman, made midweek starts. Steihl was our Saturday starter for half of the season.

Misaiszek has to bounce back from a bad year. He just wasn't good as a starter this year after doing a nice job his freshman year.

But I like our starting pitching.

Ty Robinson is another who needs to bounce back. He started this year as the closer and raced out to convert six saves then his control issues arose. Too many walks and wild pitches chased Glavine to lose faith in him (can't blame him either) and he got buried the last month and a half of the year.

Tyler Brown was pretty solid and will get better and Brian Rodríguez was good for most of the year as a freshman but at times had control issues too late in the year.

I'm still trying to figure out how C John Mazza played went to Maryland. He was an automatic out for a majority of the year and his average was below the Mendoza line. He and Mason Koppens weak hitting kill our lineup. I know Glavine likes their defense which is the only reason why they, start but it's tough to watch. Koppens did get hot during our 4 week home stand , but they went cold the rest of the year. IMO I don't think either one do anything special defensively. That being said, if they both play well this summer, maybe they can change it around for the senior seasons.

We have two other catchers that I think are talented. Michael Geaslen and redshirt freshman Teddy Beaudet.

Next years schedule should be much fairer. We played way too many away games. I asked Glavine why months ago and he said it's wasn't planned and he wasn't happy with the schedule either. He tried to get Cincinnati to come to Brookline for a 3-game series and they declined, so we ended going out there instead. He still wants to get a series with a bigger program to come to us, but it's going to be hard. NU will open the year playing a series at a Power 5 team, but he said the 2018 schedule will be better.

We'll still probably be picked in the middle of the pack or lower next year because we lost 9 seniors (all replaceable IMO) but I really like what we have coming back and the direction the program is headed.
