Draft Preview Preview (Huh?)

I have now begun work on the 2004 data for NCAA hitters and pitchers, so hopefully there will be several articles coming out of that research here in the two weeks before the draft. As a sneak peek, although my full strength-of-schedule adjustments aren’t yet prepared, I have a quick-and-dirty method that gets pretty close to the mark and I’ve run it for the pitchers. Adjusted for strength of competition and for home park, the top five NCAA pitchers in runs saved above average in 2004 are:

Jered Weaver, Long Beach St., 68
J.P. Howell, Texas, 58
Jason Windsor, Fullerton St., 57
Wade Townsend, Rice, 57
Wade LeBlanc, Alabama, 54
