Dirtbags Movin' On Up

Long Beach State, who didn't even make the top 25 in Baseball America's preseason poll, is now ranked 19th in college baseball. Go Dirtbags! (And a hat tip to Brian Clevinger, who reminds me that his own alma mater, UC Riverside, is right behind them at #20, the first time since 2003 that the Highlanders have appeared on this list.)

Update: Here's an excerpt from the Aaron Fitt chat:

Q: Jacob from California asks: What is your take on the Dirtbags? Playing a tough schedule and getting some good experience for the young ones.

A: Aaron Fitt: The contrast between Long Beach and UCLA is rather striking. Both have rather young teams dominated by sophomores and freshmen, and both have played tough schedules, but the Dirtbags are 4-3 against the top 25 and UCLA is 3-6 against the top 25. I didn't think there was any way LBSU would be 8-4 at this point in the season against that challenging schedule. Terrific, terrific coaching job by Mike Weathers and his staff so far.


Damn right, UC Riverside's in the top 25. About damn time!
