Baseball: Top 10 rankings shuffle, again


Remind me never to get on Barry Bacon’s bad side …

I must apologize for my pathetic attempt at breaking down the area teams when the rankings were released last week.

Or not.

See, with All-Area packages due by last week’s end that left little time to closely look at the league-openers last week. On top of that, I’m taking Thursday, Friday and Monday off so there won’t be any action on the blog while I’m gone. Hope yall can be have yourselves.

In the meantime, here is the new top 10. I’ll be heading to Monrovia tomorrow afternoon to check out the Wildcats who host red-hot Temple City at 3:30 p.m. St. Francis is off to a good start and so is La Salle. I’ve yet to see Kilbury pitch for Monrovia, Rutherford for the Apaches or Dylan Covey for Maranatha. They play at Brentwood as we speak. Your suggestions for games to be covered Thursday/Friday while I’m gone are welcomed.
