2009-02-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Bryan, I'm glad your NCAA coverage will be resuming soon! Could you give us a brief rundown on the Big Ten this year and Michigan/Minnesota in particular? Thanks.
(lemppi from Ankeny, IA)
Michigan lost a lot more than just Zach Putnam; at the very least, another draft star in Justin Christian, and a college star in Nate Recknagel. Six members of the starting nine are gone, as well as the ace (Putnam) and closer (Michael Powers). However, much of the pitching staff is still in tact, which gives the Wolverines the edge in the conference. However, don't sleep on the upstart Indiana Hoosiers, who return much of the offense that hit .339/.411/.476 last season, Phegley being the obvious star. The key will be an improvement from a pitching staff that had a 6.22 ERA -- no doubt let down by the nation's 258th-ranked defense. Matt Bashore is a true ace, and the team has some interesting arms in Blake Monar and Kyle Leiendecker. I just love what Tracy Smith has done with this program, and a conference title is not out of the question. (Bryan Smith)
