you can go ahead and remove Trinity from any discussion of a pool C birth now with the loss the Hardin-Simmons last night.  I think TU is 3-4 in their last 7, with 5 in-region losses.  Assuming they dont win the SCAC they will have at least 7 in-region losses, which is going to be tough to get a pool C bid with.  
Chapman(16-5) with 5 in-region losses(3 of them by 1 run) also may have a tough time this year with the Pool B bid. They have several very tough in region games left: 4 games with Linfield, 3 games with UDallas, 3 with Redlands, 3 with Wheaton(yes it is in region), single games with Cal Lutheran and Claremont.

Errors have figured huge in their losses this year.

But those will all help Chapman's SoS in the end which could play a big role in Pool B this season.
Baseball is not a game that builds character, it is a game that reveals it.

Chapman's strength is again its pitching that keeps them in all games. Team ERA 2.30 oppBA .192 oppOBA .274. When they play good D there are very difficult to beat.

I expect to see Tyler, Linfield and Chapman in the West Regional for sure.  After that, I think the SCIAC has a long way to go before it is decided but Cal Lutheran can do a lot with a series win over La Verne and Pomona-Redlands will be a battle.  That conference should take shape in the next few weeks.  George Fox needs to win as much as they can from this point forward, same with Trinity. If Trinity does not win the SCAC tourney, they better hope it is a team from the South region so there is an extra spot in the West.  No matter what happens, this has been a very competitive season to this point.

Chapman is going for a bid in Pool B.  Trinity is falling in the ranks of teams that might earn an at-large bid from Pool C.  Therefore Trinity probably must win the SCAC tourney.

Chapman has an in-region record of 9-5, but they also have:

3 wins against Wooster who is likely to be in the Mideast Regional Rankings at the end of the season;

2 wins head-to-head against fellow Pool B member Ithaca

1 win over Kean, who may be in the Mid-Atlantic Region Rankings at the end of the season.

Those are favorable factors, as secondary criteria.

They have 15 in-region games left in the season.  If they can go 13-2 to finish at 21-7 in-region, I think that they can get in.  20-8 or 19-9 is a bit more "iffy".

Has anybody noticed who Chapman's competition is for pool B.  It is awful.  It doesn't matter whether they have a mediocre in region record or not.  They are a good team competing against poor competition.  I'm not talking about the teams they are playing against.  I'm talking about the teams they will be compared against for the playoffs.  It's practically a lock that they will get a bid because there aren't any other good teams left in pool B.  If they just continue to do what they are doing they will be fine.  This is one of the reasons why Chapman Baseball doesn't really want to be in the SCIAC.  They have such an easy road to the playoffs they don't have to be overly concerned about the regular season.  They know they will be in the playoffs.  They just have to make sure they are playing well when it matters most.  It's actually a good place to be if you are Chapman.

That doesn't sound like a lock to me. Not sure if you're agreeing with me or not.

And Wooster is nowhere near being regionally ranked right now.

Chapman played Wabash not Wooster this year.

I would never say LOCK...since there are only 3 Pool B bids. Yes Pool B bid is a lot easier than winning the SCIAC or ASC or NWC or getting a Pool C bid. In 2009 Chapman almost missed a Pool B bid because of all the in region losses they had that year. If they continue to play well yes they are a lock.
