SEC Baseball, Part 1 – The East and the Draft

August 21st, 2011 2 comments

This is the first in a three part look at the draft's impact on SEC rosters for the coming year.

This is the first in a three part series looking at the Southeastern Conference and the impact of the Major League Baseball Draft for the 2011/12 academic year. Part one provides data relating to the drafted players and recruits for each of the six Eastern division squads. Part two will do the same for the Western division. I’ll close with a final look at and overview of how each team matched up in recruiting, retaining and promoting their programs going forward. I’ll also identify some of the key newcomer names to watch on the horizon as we head into yet another year of baseball in the best conference in college sports.

Look for part two later in the week.

2011 Vanderbilt Baseball: Season Preview, Part 6

February 16th, 2011 Comments off

The Dores figure to be a pre-season top 5 team in 2011 and will be previewed in 6 parts.

This is the last in a six-part series on Vanderbilt baseball’s 2011 season. Among all my most unhealthy habits, an addiction to following the Commodores baseball squad seems to be the most pervasive and difficult to crack. As a result, I’ve turned a time-wasting bit of fanaticism and converted it into a chance to write a bit. You can read each preview by clicking below on the links that follow the jump.

It should be noted that while this website endeavors to provide a solid team preview, membership over at VandySports.com is a must for any Commodore baseball fan. Chris Lee and Mike Rapp produce stellar premium content which is well worth the money spent. I know there’s no way I could follow the team as intently as I do without it.

Today’s post is the culmination of a long and what I intended to be a comprehensive overview of the team going forward. Herein is the second of two pieces on the post-2011 future of Vanderbilt baseball, focusing on the 2011/12 Recruiting Class and offering a sneak peek at the 2012/13 verbal commitments so far. Please note that I will likely post a post-script to this preview on Thursday to correct some things that I now know to be incorrect, including my projected starting lineup (as reported on by Chris Lee at VandySports) and a few other items.  Additionally, a feature on VandySports about the below noted recruiting class is in the works.

Up today is a the first of two (originally plotted to be one) pieces on the post-2011 future of Vanderbilt baseball. It takes a quick look at the draft prospects of current players and the projected depth chart for the Dores in the 2011/12 academic year.  It is intended to be a direct lead-in to part 6, a review of the 2011/12 Recruiting Class and an early glance at the 2012/13 verbal commitments so far.
