CSTV Ranks ASU Baseball #1 After Fall Practices

From CSTV's Doug Kroll via The College Baseball Blog...

1. Arizona State (49-15, Lost In CWS)

Many thought the Sun Devils had what it takes to win it all a year ago, with a whole host of sophomore talent. They're all back for head coach Pat Murphy in 2008, and that's why Arizona State takes the top spot. Junior first baseman Brett Wallace headlines the returners, after leading the team in batting average, homeruns and RBIs. Others returning in a stacked lineup include juniors Ike Ike Davis, Petey Paramore and Kiel Roling. As for the pitching staff, senior Josh Satow will be the anchor and hard-throwing closer Jason Jarvis fills in the backend.
Other Pac-10 teams in the top 25 include back to back national champions Oregon State at #4, UCLA at #12, and Arizona at #25. The Sun Devils are primed for a trip back to Omaha and are ready to defend their Pac-10 title.

What a great time to be a Sun Devil. Let's hope Sendek can get things turned around with the bball program.
