Farmingdale, St. Joe's, Old Westbury & MSV will be the top this season in my opinion (prob. everyone else's opinion as well) but i also know that Purchase has a solid team and they're playing a very tough schedule agaisnt opponents like D2 Chestnut Hill, Tufts, Emory, Wesley & Guilford for non-conference games. MSM will be okay...Maritime & Poly still need help but Maritime has an excellent new coach in Oliva. Poly's head coach ditched on them so their situation is not very good right now but i wish them the best of luck. Yeshiva, although they've been a joke in years past, is making a stride to be competitive and i think by the end of the season, they will be.
I don't know the kid's name that's going to Purchase but i saw him throwing in summer ball. He's a tall righty that has command of 4 pitches and i think has been out of school for a year or two. He throws in the high 80's too so it should be interesting to see him pitch against D3 guys with wooden bats.
As for that, i'm glad wood is official next year!
