Rankings with predicted Lineups

1.) Oklahoma: Mendes RF, Clifton 2B, Knighten 1B, Aviu LF, Pendley CF, Romero 3B, Alo DH, Wodach C, Arnold SS

2.) Oregon: Mack RF, Rhodes CF, Svekis C, Sanders SS, Camuso 1B, Burke LF, Iakopo DH, Lindvall 2B, Lilley 3B

3.) Florida: Adams CF, Lorenz LF, DeWitt 2B, Kvistad 1B, Wheaton C, Ocasio RF, Romanello DH, Reynoso SS, Matthews/ Hoover 3B

4.) UCLA: Jordan CF, K. Perez 2B, Tautalafua DH, Jelenicki 1B, Garcia P, Nickles 3B, Rodriguez RF, Shaw LF, B. Perez SS

5.) Texas A&M: Milligan LF, Aldernik 2B, Vidales 1B, Cuyos SS, Walters C, Sartain 3B, Hudek RF, Show DH, Russell CF

6.) Tennessee: Leach 2B, Holcomb LF, Gregg SS, Vines DP, Ayala RF, Lockman C, Bearden 1B, Seggern 3B, McClain CF

(It get really hard now. The top 6 teams return pretty much most of their lineups. Now I am only going to Rank the teams because I truly do not know what's going to happen with these teams)

7.) Washington

8.) LSU

9.) Florida State

10.) Ole Miss

11.) Alabama

12.) Minnesota

13.) Baylor

14.) Arizona

15.) Auburn

Teams to watch ( Not top 15 or even 25 right now, but might be at the end of the year):

Wisconsin: Wisconsin does lose its best player from last year in Chloe Miller, but return 7 starters and its ACE. In a weak Big Ten in which they do not have to face Minnesota nor Michigan.

Oregon State: Oregon State has a bunch of talent. Will they see it come to light? In a very strong PAC 12 can Oregon State become a really good team?

Let's discuss this upcoming season.

Oregon plays 13 games against the rest of your Top 10 (nine against WCWS teams from June). Standard fare for an SEC team, but seven of them are out-of-conference games. The only of that Top 10 not on the schedule is Florida.

I think Minnesota without SaraG drops.

Also, does Texas A&M have a stud freshman pitcher?

Minnesota can very well drop, but I thought with the combo of Sydney Smith and Amber Fiser can try to replace her. They also have other pitchers including Paige Lowary’s Little sister

And Yes, Texas A&M does bring in Maddie McGrandle who should fight for time in the circle

My bad. I was supposed to put Halstead as the flex and she’ll catch. I didn’t know if UCLA would let Garcia hit or not. Without her in the lineup they lose lots of power. I know Halstead is a powerful player, but she has yet to show it by hitting homers.

I agree with your lineup. That’s the thing with 7-14. They all lose about to players that meant a lot last year. Which teams have younger players that rise to the occasion?

I put Baylor in the top 15 Because even though they lose Selman and Cargill, they bring in some transfers that can try to replace them. I think that their lineup gets deeper this year. But can rondoni improve from last year when she went 18-4? They play LSU, Alabama, and Florida in the preseason so we will see how good the Pitching can be.

A whole lot of mental reconstruction is needed in the circle in Tucson

What’s your reasoning behind not dropping Washington?Also, I think Alabama and Minnesota are in a better situation than Utah, UGA, And ASU.

I don't really see why I would drop Washington. They have a lot of talent and I think they'll tie for second place with UCLA in the PAC. I also hate Bama and am not sold on Minnesota. It's too early top 15 for fun and I like Utah's chances with pitching and an integrigued to see what Mathis can bring to Georgia. ASU is my wildcard team! I have high hopes for them this season

You don’t just lose players like Aguilar and Stangle and not drop though, still a top ten team but not above the Bruins or A&M, who both return basically the whole starting line up

But they have B Perez as well as A Jordan to make up for it. UCLA will suffer in the power department without Spaulding but they will not suffer in average or run production. Perez and Jordan are both studs.

MERRY CHRISTMAS (except those 2 broads who follow the AzCats).
Ole Miss has nothing to do with this.

You don't give away O'Toole's and Mauga's and Mercado's and Perez's one chance to make the WCWS without a lot of mental rehabilitation.

Freshmen are freshmen.

For every Garcia, there is a Grauer.

Could go either way.

Ole Miss didn’t lose its best hitter or its best pitcher. The only starters they lost were CF and C and neither of those were their best hitter.

They aren't just regular freshman I promise. Jordan is a redshirt and B Perez is a very special player. UCLA will challenge everyone just as much as Oregon or Florida this season.

Ole Miss ace pitcher Kaitlin Lee is a Senior. They did not lose her.

You mean you WANT Mowatt to fail.  I don't see failure in her future, at all.  Hope your kid brought brass balls to the field this season cuz she will need them.

This guy obviously has some kind of vendetta against Mowatt it's super weird. Can't imagine not being happy for Arizona with this move.

Being a pitcher and being a strong defender and hitter are different. you can't compare a CF to a P their roles are too different.
