New England Region / Re: BB: General New England Discussion

I think that if WPI gets in, teams may want to re-think there position about playing in the ECAC tourney for no other reason than to add possible in -region wins for the committee to look at. But also if a team loses a couple it could hurt them.
I agree that it could hurt them if a team loses, but if your on the bubble already wouldn't you take the chance to try and get some in regions wins to help yourself. Take a team like Wheaton they probably had nothing to lose playing the ECAC. If they win it, it might help. They could have gotten a win over WPI that could have helped. In my opinion I thought they should have played in it to try and help themselves. Now it doesn't seem to matter, they are likely done. But crazier things have happened with the selections.

I follow Wheaton, and they are on serious life support right now. Like the players have said lately, "We didn't take care of buisness when we could have so it's on us". If they don't get in we'll have to give our support to the NEWMAC rep. in the regional.

Hey moc323, when I first read mans007 post I took it as if he was saying except for playing Babson, Trinity plays a weak schedule. I guess you could take it either way. I will say it doesn't look like Babson is trying to duck anyone and the NEWMAC seems to be getting stronger as a conferance with the success of Babson as of late. WPI is strong and hopefully can stay that way after they lose Fahey. MIT seems to play teams tough. Wheaton (except for their latest free fall) is usually a strong team.
Good luck to Babson in the regoinals.

Hey guys,

I'm a new member of D3 baseball I haven't seen many games, but have followed every now and again over the years, and figure what the hell why not join if I think i can contribute a little.  I've been posting more recently on the general New England boards and whatnot talking about Wheaton/Curry/WPI's chances at large-bid attempts.

However, I recently put together some stats regarding Babson and their pitching and what kind of pitching their offense faced throughout the year.  I came across Fahey from WPI, who is having/had a spectacular year, as a legitimate All-American candidate.  I also saw they faced Gingras from Wheaton, who was an All-American in his junior campaign, but does not seem to be having quite the season he had last year.  Was wondering if anybody knows/knew about any injuries he may have had, or battling currently, or if its just a case of the pieces not falling in the right spots at the right time? Seems like the numbers hes putting up this year don't reflect the type of pitcher he really is. Just a curious question before selection Sunday, the LEC conference, and regionals kick off. (Am I bored over here? Sure. But everybody loves a little baseball :))

Also, congrats to Babson on a well played tourney this year over the heavily favored Lyons.  This regional is going to be a great spectacle to watch with the teams that may be there this year.  Also good luck to Wheaton and WPI as they attempt to secure at large bids and see Babson over in the regionals (Babson would love to see that ;)) Thanks. Have a good day.


I think it was more of the pieces not falling into place. His two losses he gave up 12 runs but only 4 were earned. Having talked to him he will be the first to tell you that no matter what happens behind him he has to make pitches to get the team off the field. His ERA got inflated after the RIC game only because the home plate ump was not giving either team calls on the corners. All pitchers that day were painting the corners and getting no calls forcing them to throw it down the middle. That's probably why they ended up with a 19-13 final score.

Here are the standings for the NEWMAC. You said in an earlier post Wheaton was listed over WPI. Maybe if you weren't blinded by your rage over Wheaton you would see WPI on top.

                 Conf.     Over-All 
WPI           9-3-0     26-11-0 
Wheaton     9-3-0    30-12-0 
MIT            7-5-0    24-14-0 
Babson        6-6-0    22-18-0 
Springfield    5-7-0    9-26-0 
Clark           4-8-0    14-21-0 
Coast Guard 2-10-0  7-23-0

Heres my take for this week

1. Southern Maine
2. Pomona Pitzer
3. St Scholastica
4. Salisbury
5. Kean
6. Texas Tyler
7. Carthage
8. Heidelberg
9. Eastern Conn
10. Keystone
11. Millsaps
12. George Fox
13. Trinity
14. Wooster
15. RPI
16. Shenedoah
17. Ithaca
18. Pacific Lutheran
19. Cal Lutheran
20. Curry
21. Bethany Lutheran
22. UW Osh Kosh
23. Texas Lutheran
24. Penn St Behrand
25. Rochester

Wheaton went 1-2 in their league playoff as well as WPI which is why I dropped both out. Bethany Lutheran is 25-6, Rochester 28-11, RPI 27-8 which is why I put them in.

AlleyCat, Not that it will make a big difference, but Wheaton went 2-2 in their league tourney

Also just found #23 Wheaton (MA) vs #5 Johns Hopkins tomorrow. Should be another great matchup.
BigPoppa, Wheaton played Johns Hopkins today. A 10-6 win for Wheaton. Tomorrow Wheaton plays WNEC. WNEC begins there season today against TCNJ.

Wheaton is 4-1. They beat TCNJ twice in two days. Good wins against a good team. There only loss so far is to St. Johns 11-12 in ten innings. Were down 10-2 going into the seventh, took the lead in the eigth but couldn't hold on. Not a bad start so far. It is nice to see Louie B. back and throwing well.

Great photos from that game. I agree with Jack Parkman about that being a bomb. If you look at photos number 28 to 30 it looks like the catcher following the flight of the ball is looking up at the moon. I guess that's why they call them "moonshots"

May have just answered my own question. I just noticed the Teamline link on the home page for the Az. Invitational. Is that going to be for all games or just certain schools?

Thanks ECSUalum. I've looked at some of the stats from those schools, but sometimes they can be a little decieving. Just thought I could get a little more insight.
Was looking at the schedule for the Russmatt Baseball 2009
Greater Phoenix Invitational and seems to be attracting more and more good teams. There should be some great games. Unfortunately I can't get to Az.
Does anyone know if there is going to be anyway to track the games as far as score updates or do we have to wait till there over and check the schools web site?

Thanks KSCfan. I knew about TCNJ and Hopkins as far as how good the games could be. I should have put in my post I was talking more about the teams in bold lettering. Sorry I didn't clarify that :P
Thanks again.

Infielddad - I went to the Lansing Lugnuts website and clicked on league transactions. Looked through the different months and found that on Sept. 4 it says Dougher was removed from roster. Don't know if he was demoted or let go out right.
