San Diego, CA weather forecast - Nothing like the hail pounding my roof...

Finally! Time to throw the first pitch of the '12 Diamond Dawgs season. Live video / stat streams are provided by SDSU, and hopefully everything runs smoothly this first time around. I have no idea if anyone will be joining me, but you can count on one usual suspect to be here all year long. BASEBALL!

Breakdown after the jump..

This weekend series will be a good chance for me to get a good idea of how things will go, so bare with me while a rhythm forms. Some doughnut holes, straight from the Louisville Slugger factory:

  • SDSU leads the all-time series 7-4, with the Huskies winning the last 2, most recent 2003.

  • Aaron West has one the highest-rated pickoff moves in College Baseball, sniping 8 in '11.

  • Cole Swanson was a 2011 Freshman All-American going 4-2, 3.23 ERA and is a good test for our vs. LHP lineup the Skipper will debut tentatively tonight.

  • Keep an eye on SDSU CF Cody Smith. He led the team in hitting last year and was also a Freshman All-American.

  • Both Swanson and Smith are Preseason All-Mountain West team members.

  • '12 UW SOS (strength of schedule) is 9th in the country, and most of the PAC-12 is just as high.

  • '12 SDSU SOS is 43rd in the nation, 9th toughest non-conference. It's brutal.

  • SDSU is picked to finish 4th in the Mountain West.

  • UW is picked to finish 10th in the PAC-12

  • WSU is 9th...gotta fix that.

  • BASEBALL!

I'm intrigued to see how the new power bats and bullpen arms fare. Will they start cold, maybe some butterflies? Time to find out what the 2012 Diamond Dawgs look like. GO DAWGS!
