When will baseball get here?

Used to be that LSU's baseball team was pushing close to a half-dozen wins by this time of February.

Now, with the NCAA mandating the start of the season to begin on Friday, Feb. 22, LSU has no wins in no games.

Just how the later starting date will affect people remains to be seen. There are more midweek games now and fewer weekend dates. You've got to figure some teams -- such as LSU -- could be hurt at the gate since there are more midweek games.

And the on-the-field product may be a little weakened because of the heavier workload for pitchers.

It will be interesting to see how this all plays out.

If the later starting date makes college baseball more of a national sport, then the changes will be worth it. If not, then they'll need to be addressed in the future.
