Top Records in the West
Texas-Tyler 22-0 1.000
Hardin Simmons 18-5 .783
Trinity-Texas 21-6 .778
Linfield 14-4 .778
Chapman 16-5 .762
UDallas 17-6 .739
Pomona Pitzer 17-6 .739
George Fox 14-5 .737
Redlands 15-6 .714

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.

Why is Chapman a lock and Trinity not?
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.

Doesn't Chapman have a mediocre region record?
(snip)
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".

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.

Oh now I see it was corrected above. No matter, neither one of them will be ranked.

Chapman definitely has chances to impression with how their schedule finishes. But so far...not really so much.

Trinity is playing BAD baseball right now.  Only chance for them to get in now is to win the tourney and get the A bid.

IN-REGION records as of 4/18/11

1. UT-Tyler               28-4    .875%
2. Linfield                 22-4    .846%
3. Redlands             20-5    .800%
4. Pomona-Pitzer    24-10   .705%
5. Trinity                  24-11   .686%
6. George Fox          17-8     .680%
7. LaVerne               21-11   .656%
8. Chapman             15-8     .652%

It is interesting to see how this is stacking up, especially with Pomona-Pitzer resting in 4th place in the SCIAC.  It's hard to imagine them getting in while being a 4th place team but who knows.  There are still some games to be played so this will obviously change but Trinity can not afford 2 more losses and Chapman can not afford any more losses (big 3-game set with Redlands coming up).  
I am not as well versed in this area but what do some of the more knowlegable guys on here think will happen?  How will flights affect the West regional?  Thoughts?
