Welcome to Episode 39 of The Podcast About Division III Baseball. It's almost May, which means IT IS ABOUT TO GET REAL. Here's what this episode includes:

  • Top 25 rundown (at 3:20)
    • Giving our brief thoughts on every team in the latest Top 25 and how the rankings have shifted over the last few weeks. Including:
      • A lacrosse team ended Concordia-Chicago's win streak, yikes
      • Jordan saw Rowan and TCNJ in person and they are both very good
      • The good and the bad of the Denison Big Red
      • Is 28-2 Coe for real?
      • Whitewater should be higher, come on people
      • So many Panthers (Chapman, LaGrange, Birmingham-Southern)
      • Swathmore drops out, big week coming up against Johns Hopkins
      • ...and more!
  • Predicting the top teams (at 16:44) in each region for the first regional rankings (to be released here on Wednesday afternoon). Topics include:
    • Who will be #2 in the Central?
    • Trying to clear up the top of the loaded South and New England regions
    • The relatively disappointing Mideast Region
    • Why Cortland is still clearly #1 in New York despite a frustrating season thus far
    • Why is the West so down compared to last year?
    • ...and more!
  • Biasball (at 26:40)
    • WashU staying hot with a sweep of Emory and a UAA title and the 500th career win for head coach Pat Bloom
    • Wooster has been up (16-0 win + no-hitter) and down (allowing 21 runs at home to a regional rival) lately but have some big games to redeem themselves soon

...then we say goodbye. Thanks for listening!
