5/23 Baseball Bracketology Breakdown

Last Four In: Florida, Illinois, Troy, Indiana  
First Four Out: Kansas State, Kansas, Northeastern, Connecticut  
Conference tournaments are in full swing, and this is an updated bracket halfway through. I see the possibility of quite a few bid-stealers this season. The defending National Champions have been on a tear lately working their way through the SEC Tournament. They should be a lock for a 2-seed in someone’s Regional. East Carolina drops from the National Seed line as they are not faring well in the American Conference Tournament, but I expect them to win it. Duke, UC Santa Barbara, East Carolina, and Dallas Baptist are on the fence of hosting.
