Baylor Baseball is Good

How good?

Well, with only 12 games left in the regular season, Baylor is currently sporting a .833 win percentage (35-7).

Let me put that in perspective. From 2009-2011, Baylor Baseball usually hovered around .571 in 42 games (25-17, 25-17, 22-20). They went on to finish those seasons around .554 (30-26, 36-24, 31-28).

If Baylor keeps on at this current pace, they will win 44 of the 54 total games scheduled. If they drop to .500, they will still win 41 of the 54 games scheduled. If they manage to keep the streak alive (and they don't play anyone as highly ranked as A&M in these last 12 games), they will finish the regular season 47/54. The Big 12 record for games won in a season (including the postseason) is 58, set by the 2004 Texas team (58-15). Keep in mind, I'm simply using wins and losses to get these numbers.

I didn't include specific numbers for postseason appearances, simply because that is an entirely different animal to predict, since games on the schedule are dependent on the w/l record that precedes them. Just for fun, there are 78 games listed on the Baylor Baseball 2012 schedule. Playing at .833, Baylor Baseball would finish these 78 games at 64-14. Do I think this will happen? No. Is it nice to look at? Yes.

I think that after this last weekend's series, we can definitely say that this is a very very good Baylor Baseball team, and one that is very good at winning, even in adverse circumstances. Will they win it all? That's yet to be seen.
