Mizzou Baseball Quotes & Notes: Status Report

RPI Needs Report (BoydsWorld.com)
This report lists the record each team would need for the rest of their schedule to finish higher than the team currently in the shown key RPI positions, those that correspond to the various seeding or at large thresholds, assuming that all other teams maintain their current winning percentage. It's highly speculative, since those RPI levels will move up or down, and the committee is highly unlikely to just take the top 8 in RPI for the national seeds, for example, but it can be useful as a rough guide.
Missouri needs to go 21-1 to finish in the Top 32
Missouri needs to go 19-3 to finish in the Top 45
■ From the BoydsWorld.com Leaderboard:
  • Division I Batting Average: Aaron Senne ranked 4th, at .476

  • Total Hits: Aaron Senne tied for 10th, at 57

  • Pitching Appearances: Phil McCormick tied for 6th, at 20

  • Bases on Ball surrendered: Jeff Scardino tied for 4th, with just 3
With six weeks remaining in the regular season, it’s too soon for the Tigers to panic. Missouri lost five of its first six conference series last season before making a run from eighth to second in the standings. The Tigers finished third when the Sooners passed them on the final weekend.
■ In the weekly Top 25 Chat (Baseball America), Aaron Fitt talks bout a number of Big 12 teams, including offering his opinions on two of MU's draft prospects: Aaron Senne and Nick Tepesch.
Senne was a tease for much of the first three years of his collegiate career. He's always had power potential, and he never quite put it all together until this year — it's great to see him having this kind of loud season. He could be a good senior sign for somebody.
