Shea Nations Picks
This weekend at the Rocky Mountain Classic Major NIT in Loveland, CO will have 29 teams and 7 Nationwide Conference USSSA teams in attendance including 0 major, 0 AA, 3 A, 10 B, 11 C teams, and 5 D teams. SEMINOLES/TPS/NACSF.INC is the #1 overall seed and favorite. The Seminoles are 30-6 against A or lower teams. The other teams looking to get the win without any major teams present are: Levels and CompetitiveEdge/OlmitoHeat/Adiktiv. Rocky Mountain Predictions: The final 4 undefeated should be: Levels versus Competitive Edge and Cheap Suits versus Seminoles. Seminoles has enough power and pitching to go undefeated. In the losers bracket I predict all teams that drop down to win their next game. We could see some upsets from local Colorado team, Smoke/NextLevel/TopNotch/CompleteAu. Do not count out local Texas team Smash/The Lodge Card Club from pulling off some upsets as well. Shea's Final Picks for the Rocky Mountain Major: 1. SEMINOLES/TPS/NACSF.INC 2. CompetitiveEdge/OlmitoHeat/Adiktiv 3. Levels 4. Cheap Suits/Republic Realty/Express 5. Bay Area Legends/Non Stop Grind Smash/The Lodge Card Club
Old Scout Pollers went with Seminoles who I hear is having trouble with canceled flights.
