rpi 41, way too early, but not a bad start.

That’s last season.

Warren Nolan has Rice at #23. But yes, way too early.

Massey has us at 37.

Stanford will be a test. Massey has them at 4 after sweeping CS Fullerton and beating UC Davis.

Don't have the link because I was traveling today from Orlando to Redwood City, CA, but D1Baseball included and "power ranking" of the hardest throwing pitchers the first weekend, and Garrett Gayle clocked in at a tie for third fastest at 97 MPH. Someone clocked in at 100, and another at 98.

I am guessing you will be in Palo Alto for the weekend? All 4 games?

I will definitely make a couple of games.. just not sure which yet. I got recruited to do some rewiring and furniture construction at my parents house.

Always make the Palo Alto trip. Yes, I'll be at all 4 games + the tailgate on Saturday. Looking forward to catching up.

For those coming out, dress for winter. It's really cold out here, and that's coming from a guy currently living in Chicago. I was expecting it to drop to the high 40s at night and mid-50s during the day, but they're now forecasting 5 - 10 degrees colder than that through the weekend. The night games on Thursday and Friday are going to be seriously chilly...and remember, the Sunken Diamond is "sunken", and that makes it even colder.

Good call. I brought my coat, just in case. Learned my lesson after the Thanksgiving debacle of 2016 where I landed in Shanghai in a T shirt, shorts and flip flops to encounter 32 degrees outside.

Orlando to Redwood City.. MCO-LAX-SFO? MCO-DFW-SFO/SJC?

MCO-DFW-SFO...and, fortunately, my arrival and departure gates at DFW were both in Terminal A, and relatively close to each other.

RE: Baseball ranking Feb 19, 2018
A couple Rice-related questions/posts in today's D1Baseball chat...

Quote:Comment From Ben Content
Do you think Rice has the potential to join the top 25 in the near future?

Aaron Fitt:
Yep, not too far out of the rankings — I like the talent and the balance. We’ll see how some of their young position players develop and how the bullpen settles in; not a great weekend for that bullpen, but there were certainly some glimmers of hope (Parthasarthy was good, Amador was pretty good, Gayle looked electric even though his command faltered a bit, and Kravetz will pitch a lot better than he did this weekend, no cause for alarm on him).

Quote:Comment From Alan
Will you have a D1 writer on hand for the Rice at Stanford 4-game series this weekend, and what is your prediction?

Aaron Fitt:
I think Eric Sorenson was planning to go up there for that one, but I’ll have to check with him to see if that’s still the plan. Should be a great series; I liked what I saw from Rice this weekend. Gotta give Stanford the edge at home, but should be a very competitive series.

Note: Yes, Stitchhead Sorenson will be there and, in fact, he's been invited to attend the team dinner on Wednesday evening. He's a huge Tanya and Wayne fan. So, back to back weekends we'll get good national coverage.

Yep. Weather.com predicts the Thursday and Friday lows for Palo Alto to be 38 degrees.

Fortunately for the games' sakes, our much-needed rain isn't supposed to return until Monday. It's been more than three weeks since we've had ANY rain in the Bay Area. And this is our seasonal rainy season.
