We're #1!

Georgia Tech baseball is now #1 in the new ESPN/USA Today Poll after ripping of a 10-0 streak to open the season, including a huge win over #6 Tennessee and their #1 starter. Whit Robbins, Wes Hodges, Steven Blackwood and Matt Wieters are leading a powerful offense that Baseball America names the best in the country, and Robbins is on pace for a whopping 130 rbi.

Could this be the year, finally? I don't know - GT has been ranked #1 in every single season since 2000, including preseason #1 rankings in '01,'03 and '04 and we know how those years ended. I'm still a bit worried about the starting pitching, but when your team is ranked #1 it's pretty bush to complain about much. Lets hope this is the season that Danny Hall finally gets his elusive championship and Tech breaks the ACC baseball curse.

You should be reading every day during the season, but I'll try to have some more stuff on baseball as the season progresses.
