Good point on RBI's and SB's....As for the Dh/2nd base....I believe I read he had an arm injury but that he ways a SS.  I've always felt it is better to look at ob% and slg%.....RBI's are subject to someone else being on base in additon SB's are also subject to having a clear path in front to run or having someone who can run with you. It looks like Frost played in more games. Not taking anything away from Frost he must be very good given his draft today, just drawing a comparison...... a previous post mentioned Wherley. 18 doubles in 30 games is something though. Just surprised he wasn't on the list.

Here is the list.......

Thanks guys for the lists.

I agree with you that ob% and slug% are the best to look at. But when those stats are comparable you have to look at the other aspects. He significantly better stats in those areas. I agree with you somewhat that rbi/runs/sb depends on certain things. But both guys are in the same position in my opinion. Frost just took advantage of his opportunities. Another stat that was interesting was Wherley had 14 strikeouts and Frost 6.

                  Avg     R     RBIs   HRs  Slug       Ob       SB
Wherley     .407   27     24      3    .626       .468     11/12    30 games
Frost         .386    42     38      7    .641       .455     25/28    36

I have not looked at the stats of everyone on the 3rd team but would think Wherleys would compare somewhat. Do i think he should be a 1st teamer NO, Do i think he should be a 2nd teamer probably not, but possibly a 3rd teamer. I know his stats are not really that good compared to a couple 3rd teamers (Beamen, Bennett, Carlson, Infusino, Johnson) who i actually thought might be 2nd team

Good point.....interesting comparison with Bennet, who was from the same division of the conference and the POY in the south.   

                 Avg     R     RBIs Hits 2b's  HRs  Slug       Ob          SB
Wherley     .407   27     24   50   18     3    .626       .468     11/12    30 games
Bennet       .375   34     26   48   12     7    .633       .488     5-8    40 games

The thing that might of really hurt him was that he only played 30 games which is too bad, but its tough luck

The right choice, only player that has stats somewhat close to him is Sean Claugherty

Another possibility from the Rawlings All Region list is Todd Mathison, who was Co-MIAC player of the year with Kaczrowski.  Hit almost .400, .515 slugging, only 9 K's in 117 AB, in addition was top pitcher at 6-2 with 2.3 ERA and only 9 BB in 61+ inn.  3 time all region, frosh All American, plays 3B and SS for Oles as well as P.

The moment everyone has waited for all region players at this point in time, will most likely change as the season goes on, but here are some top performers. Feel free to throw some other guys out there that have good stats because I do this quickly and may miss a guy or two, but im usually pretty close with my selections of what actually happens.

C:  Jay Slick BU .507 avg. 3HRS, 27 runs, SLUG .718%
1B: Sean Claugherty CSS .481 avg. 34 runs, SLUG .696%, OB% .615% (national leader)
2B: Couldnt find anyone worthy and got tired of looking, someone give me an option here
3B: Jay Fanta LAC .380avg 4HRs, 31RBIs, SLUG.650%
SS: Nate Wilson-Traesman MAC .436avg, 3HRs, 37RBIs, SLUG.644%
OF: Blake Berger UWO .392 avg. 9HRS,  38 RBIs, SLUG .753%
OF: Jonathan Olla CUW .479avg.  36 runs, 41RBIs, SLUG .698%
OF: Tim Oesterlin BU .455avg. 29 runs, SLUG .606%
SP: James Murrey MAC 5-2 2.09 era 63-12 (K-BB)
SP: Matt Schuld UST 6-0 2.80 era 49-10 (K-BB)
SP: Peter Burg CSS 8-0 2.25 era (10 pickoffs on the year)
SP: Adian Kummet CSS 4-1, 3 saves, 1.49 era 53-16 (K-BB)
SP: Jeff Zielke STP 3-0, 4 saves, 2.53 era 36-7 (K-BB)
Couple HM (I stopped at these 2 for now)
Doris Ashton SP BLC 5-0, 2.84 era 60-7 (K-BB)
Paul Kolodge C CSS .440 avg, 3HRS 34RBIs, SLUG .667%

How bout the CF for Bethany Lutheran in the UMAC
                                  Ave    AB    R    H   2b  3b  Hr  Rbi    Tb   Slg%   OB%  SB Att
19 Schwecke, Justin.     .460    139  57  64  15   6    4   59   103  .741    .527   20-22

I think those numbers deserve consideration

...and he pitches

1.72 ERA over 15 innings...5 saves and 1 win

I'll be the first to admit I was wrong about Kyle Cummings for Stevens Point.  Perhaps he will be all WIAC at 2nd base and possibly all region.

Schwecke's numbers are pretty outstanding, but I have to question the UMAC as whole. Outside of Scholastica it is hard to believe Bethany Lutheran faces many other quality pitchers, since Bethany itself typically has one of the better staffs in the conference. There is however no doubt that his numbers are worthy for all-region selection

If I have the time i will update my all region selection, its very time consuming to sort through it all.

Im guessing Schwecke will be on it without looking at everyones numbers. BLC did play an easy schedule but they could definately swing it with the best of them.

Are you touting yourself Dan Linser?
