Q: Austin from Boulder asks:
What players have the most to gain in the current NCAA tournament? If a pitcher throws extremely well or extremely poorly, is it likely that these performances will mean a great deal?
A: Jim: If Rutgers had made it, Bobby Brownlie could have helped quell concerns about his arm if he had a huge game. As it is, teams have their minds made up on most of the guys and what happens this weekend won't change much. It's possible a performance could help break a tie if a team is uncertain, but I don't think anyone will move too much based on this weekend.
