Teixeira, Wieters, and Other Baseball Updates

After struggling to start the season, Mark Teixeira has taken off for the Yankees. He's leading the team with 17 homers and 50 RBI's. That's 1/6th of the Yankees' total RBI's and 1/5th of the Yankees' total homers. Not bad.

Matt Wieters came into the Baltimore organization as a super heralded college star... Currently, he's batting a lowly 0.167 and only has 4 hits in 7 game appearances. He's only a rookie but he'll need a helluva lot more improvement to stay in the bigs. I've been told by Orioles fans that his defense is superb, however.

Now here's a quick NCAA baseball tourney conference update:
1. SEC: 23-11 (67.6%)
2. ACC: 21-11 (65.6%)
3. PAC 10: 7-4 (63.6%)
4. Big 12: 15-14 (51.7%)
5. Big East: 3-3 (50.0%)
6. Big 10: 4-6 (40.0%)
7. Other: 41-65 (38.5%)

The Big East's lone team, Louisville, was eliminated. The SEC has two teams out of eight already in the CWS alongside Cal State-Fullerton. Good luck to UVA, Clemson, and UNC. You're the ACC's only hope.
