Well if the coaches poll is more accurate than our own, then congratulations because they still have century and dickinson both in front of St.Mary's lol, so I'm not sure what your getting at here.

And yes you are listing the teams based on experience, you had St.Mary's ranked 4th, there's no way St. Mary's even makes the top 6. They have Bohan and Earhardt, anyone else returning besides Loomis and his pitching, is nothing to ride home about. You say Century will be ranked 6 or 7, let's get serious now, Century is going to be solid all the way around besides some pitching issues, they will be ahead of St. Mary's and Dickinson, look for them to be at least in the top 4, I'm predicting them 3rd.

They may be unheard of but thats not the point, they get the job done. You don't have to have a flashy team filled with all stars, You can go very far with just alot of hard work and determination. I guess we will see when season comes but I bet that it will be those two teams battling for #2 and #3 seeds. You got to admit that they both will be great.

Was I talking about St. Mary's in my last few posts?  I am mainly pointing out Dickinson and how you all underrated them.  I will end on that note, lets just wait for the season, its almost under way.

Ming01 - I think you are the one who is overrating Dickinson and putting them up on a pedestal.

century has a lot of good players coming back.   Wentz, Dustin & Chris Wenzel, Allen,Geinert,Gesellchen,and not to mention new upcoming players,Schlosser,and hausauer,( who can playanywhere you ask him and be productive at any spot on the field).  Between Chris, Schlosser and Gesellchen that is probly one the most solid outfields you can ask for, not much will be dropping in the outfield, and i can gaurentee that! We'll have a great solid defens and if we can get the bats goin we'll be a very dangerous team to watch out for.  And as far a seniors lost we only really lost 2 main players Cross and Schmidty, who cares about Betz he was a terrible outfielder and a streeky hitter.  Chris will fill in for Betz no problem and cross and schmidty are filled in for already, Wentz taking the role of schmidty's spot in hitting and Cross's spot on the field.  Schlosser takaing schmidty's spot in the field and he can play outfield just about as good as schmidty.  not to mention Schlosser is a power hitter, once he gets hot he hits the stuff out of the ball, Man you're just to washed up in the St.Mary's  pride which there is no problem in having pride in your school i respect that, but come an man lets be serious here St.Mary's isnt going to hav ethat good of a team, at least not to finsh ahead of century.

I wouldnt start comparing Nate Schlosser to Brian Schmidt if I were you. Schmidt is a Division 2 player, and Schlosser shouldn't be starting this year. Schmidt played as a Freshman and Schlosser will be lucky to hit over .250. And Wentz played a lot of shortstop last year anyways, so he isn't exactly taking Cross's spot.

Yeah but he was also the best hitter on the team, and schmidt with a bad arm could still throw very well from right field. Plus he had been playing there for at least 4 years, Schlosser is going to have to learn a lot of the strategies to playing right field, especially that sun at municipal

Brian played first base after he hurt his arm, which was about half way through the season. He played left field also in the begining of the year not right.

I think if you look at this year's class, there is no clear front-runner such as Minot 05, Dickinson 04, & Bismarck High 03.  I think it'll be very close between the three Bismarck teams, Dicky, Willy & Minot to make state.  I also think you guys are rating Minot too high.  If there's one team to watch, its Bismarck High.  They have about 11 guys who are ready to start at the varsity level.  I also think Brandon Solemsaas will dominate this year because he had a really good summer & from what I hear, has worked hard this past off-season.  Solemsaas & Lundy will be the two best pitchers from the West easily.

This last summer I drove across the river to Mandan to watch some of the Central Plains Regional Tournament.  There were some really good teams playing.  I knew that Mandan would be playing because they hosted it, and I didn't think they would do anything.  However, Mandan did beat the team that ended up taking third in the tournament.  They are getting back the majority of players that made up that summer roster.  Why is everybody taking them so lightly?  7th?

because that was the Mandan legion team and they had kids who were back from college and kids from some surrounding small towns.

I looked up the roster on the Internet, and there was only one kid back from college.  He didn't contribute at all, he went 0 for the tournament.  The contributions came from not only Schnell and Jungling, but the large core of now seniors at Mandan.

Because mandan lost a lot of people due to D U I as well as minors in possesion so it may be bad for them

Most of the guys in mandan that did get minors got them a while ago and will be ready for the season. And just because Mandan doesn't have the star pitchers does not mean anything in HS baseball. If people can throw strikes and the defense plays well, that's what truely matters. Look at someone like Bismarck High last year. Sure they had Carr (who is doing well at the U of M I might add) but other than him no pitcher threw gas, but they pitched well...they threw strikes. I think that is a big misconception in HS baseball is that you need to throw 85 to be good, but the real deal is that throwing strikes and keeping people off balance is essential. A good change up beats a 85 mph fastball any day of the week!
