  1. JMU’s not in the College World Series, they’re in the Tournament’s opening round. They’d have to advance past three teams in Chapel Hill then win a Super Regional series to get to Omaha.

    Also, nice work finding so many negative Nats storylines, including that redicilous Yelp survey, after a 10-2 win over the Scum.
