Week 13

This looks to be a down week, as none of the series pits top teams against each other. But there is still some intrigue as a couple of teams with reasonable hopes of making the postseason host upper-tier teams in gotta-win series, and a couple of other teams whose postseason hopes are all but gone travel to other strong teams’ ballparks for a last-ditch, against-all-odds effort to play into June.
  • UCLA at UW
  • Ariz at Cal
  • USC at Ore
  • WSU at Stan
  • OSU at Utah
  • ASU at Gonzaga (XGon)
Week 13 Series
  • The Huskies are practically in after playing very well in Coach Lindsey Meggs’s third season at UW. According to the RPI needs report, UW only needs to go 4-6 to make the cut. With series against UCLA, @ASU, and Wazzu, this seems doable. UCLA was one out away (several times) from a sweep of Purdue before succumbing to an outlandish 10-run 9th-inning loss, but the Bruins still enter the weekend in the discussion for a national seed. That may end prematurely if they don’t take care of the Huskies.
  • Arizona is still in the hunt for the Pac-12 crown, even after losing a home series to 1st place Oregon last weekend. They travel to California to take on the Golden Bears, who amazingly can still make the postseason if they win seven of their last ten games. Easier said than done. Those ten games are Arizona, UCLA, and @Stanford, with a single nonconference game against Wazzu.
  • USC suffered a devastating blow getting swept by Washington last week, but they can still get in with an 8-4 record over their last 12 games. They also face a gauntlet of top-tier Pac teams: @Oregon, Arizona, and @UCLA, with a makeup game against Wazzu, and solos against Santa Barbara and Riverside. The Ducks has proven themselves the best team in the conference, with a 1.5-game lead over 2nd place Arizona and series wins over the other top four teams. They have only USC at home and Oregon State on the road left in conference play. Doing well against the Trojans might render the Civil War series irrelevant to the conference title. But if they let Arizona or UCLA gain ground by not taking the Trojans seriously, they could lose it all on the diamond in Corvallis. Which would be a terrible thing.
  • The Cougars have to go 10-2 to have a chance now. They might not make it past this weekend at Sunken Diamond. If they manage to pull off an upset in Palo Alto, they still have OSU and @UW. Too many wasted opportunities. Stanford is still trying to claw back into the top of the conference standings. Their remaining schedule looks favorable: Wazzu, @Utah, and Cal.
  • The wipeout classic has the inutile Utes hosting Oregon State. Nuff said.
  • This week’s nonconference series should be a good one. Although tied for 5th in the WCC, Gonzaga has a decent overall record (29-17, same as ASU) and some good wins on their resume and still could make the postseason with a 5-5 finish. They lost two 1-run games to Oregon last week, but they also have beaten UW and Wazzu each twice this year. ASU is playing for pride, but the Zags are playing for spot in a regional.

Connor, I'm not sure about this strategy of yours. But we'll see how it plays out.

All right, I know a lot of folks don't use the Ariz abbreviation, and that one is understandable. But the first three of your picks I have to manually retype. WA, AZ, and OR are good if you work for the post office, but c'mon.

(At least you got the important ones right.)

I didn't think they still priinted Newspapers. What a concept. I use to have the Oregonian delivered to my house, mainly so I could use it as a liner for the cat box. But the paper has become so liberal over the years that my cat won't even do her business on it.

It is more of a local community paper that is driven my local advertising. We have alot of people who subscribe because the other paper in town features non local items, coupled with car crashes and fox news worthy items lol. Plus, alot of our readers don't even own computers.. so I guess we have a niche. I wanted to start writing about college baseball, but most of the activities revolve around 35 inch tires and shooting something... anyway we also have an online presence, and do printing and web design. I used to teach, and my wife was a nurse.. but we cashed it all in to live on the beautiful north santiam river. I also teach kayaking, and my wife is working on becoming a certified nutritionist.

Like duck, like duckling. (except duckling missed a game) Ducks never were very good at following directions. It's a wonder they ever know how fly south AND manage to return.

watching OSU last week, where do you seeing them playing right now.. low middle high.. you guys actually hit the ball hard at times. We have a let down rpi wise for the last 8 games, then bam.. into the playoffs, starting with OSU. Meaning that every game means a ton. I think the Oregon/OSU matchup is going to be one of the better ones of the season. Like flipping a coin if you ask me.

Ha- did you see my video of the beaver getting stuck in traffic.. still sore over tuesday? Pretty funny to see our closer go all haywire on you guys. But, I was pretty nervous. Kind of a preview of what is coming up. Can't wait. Sherfs interview was classic. He kept talking about how great he felt. I still liked Madison B as our all time closer thus far

Nope. Not sore at all over Tuesday (other than the usual Yeskie hate). I was okay with our performance and look forward to the Civil War series at Goss. I think we got the ability to take that series as much as y'all do. Course, I'll take the Beavs any day and twice on Sundays.

And I think I missed the beaver stuck in traffic.
