  • Someone actually predicts WSU may make a Regional in 2018

    http://www.ncaa.com/news/baseball/ar...urprising-2018

    Greyson Jenista and Alec Bohm lead Wichita State to the tourney.

    Wichita State hasn’t been to the tournament since 2009 and haven’t had a winning record since 2014. And yes, they were projected to finish sixth in a pretty tricky American Athletic Conference.

    It’s true that two offensive stars does not a championship make. But Jenista and Bohm are special players who have the ability to make something special happen in Kansas this year. They both enter 2018 as preseason All-Americans, watching their MLB Draft stock rise on a daily basis.
    The two juniors, Jenista an outfielder and Bohm a third baseman, are coming off monster sophomore campaigns. Their summers on the Cape were arguably larger than that. Jenista won Cape Cod League Most Valuable Player and Bohm finished second in hitting (.351) and third in both RBI (28) and doubles (10). The Cape has long been a launching pad for future stardom.

    Wichita State opens AAC play March 29 against East Carolina. Of the eleven teams that they play on their non-conference slate to open the year, only three made the NCAA tournament. If the Shockers can get something going early, they could have the momentum heading into ACC play. If they are going to get something going, it will be from the play of Jenista and Bohm.

    The Shockers will need a few things to go their way, but it’s not out of the question they have a little magic this season and surprise a few people… other than us.

    Anything is possible I suppose. But these are the two key points. I assume when the author says the Shocker will need a few things to go their way he means pitching, defense and BBIQ. If this doesn't happen then his 1st sentence will most likely be true.

      This may not be as crazy as it seems on the surface. With a down non-conference schedule I think it is possible we could finish 19-13. If we could somehow pull out a 12-12 conference finish (which based on last year would have been 6th place) we would be 31-25. Although UConn got left out last year finishing in 3rd with an overall record of 33-25 and RPI of 42. I guess it is still quite a stretch after all...
