Batting Around: Week 14

1. LSU Tigers

The Tigers earned their SEC championships the hard way, with a tight series win in Columbia against the number two team. You can't begrudge them their due at this point.

2. South Carolina Gamecocks

The Gamecocks came up just short of the SEC Championship, but they win the East after a strong second half to the season.

3. Florida Gators

The Gators have a strong case for number two, but I'm giving it to South Carolina due to Carolina's stronger recent play.

4. Kentucky Wildcats

Simply not playing their best baseball of the season heading into the conference tournament. I'm beginning to smell a flame out.

5. Mississippi St. Bulldogs

Unlike Kentucky (who they swept), the Bulldogs are red hot heading into the SECT. After being swept by South Carolina back in early April, the Bulldogs have won every series except for Florida. They capped it off this past weekend with a series-defining sweep against Kentucky.

6. Arkansas Razorbacks

After struggling for a couple of weeks, perhaps a sweep against lowly Tennessee was what the Hogs needed to regain their confidence.

7. Vanderbilt Commodores

Another blistering hot team, the Commodores struggled throughout the early season before finally beginning to play up to their lofty preseason expectations in recent weeks. They swept a solid Ole Miss team over the weekend.

8. Mississippi Rebels

Like Kentucky, the Rebels are limping into the SECT.

9. Georgia Bulldogs

Series loss to Alabama? Me thinks this may be David Perno's last hurrah in Athens.

10. Auburn Tigers

Got rocked in first two games against the Gators, but then did South Carolina a huge favor by winning game three and keeping the Gators from the SEC East Title.

11. Alabama Crimson Tide

Thankfully, the season is over for these guys. At least they ended on a high note.

12. Tennessee Volunteers

These guys can't say the same.
