For many Memorial Day is the first true sign of summer. For some baseball teams, Memorial Day may already be the sign that their summer is over. Even though teams are only at the quarter pole of the 162 game regular season. How they sit right now is a pretty good sign of who is in it for the long haul and who is already to call it a season and start building for the future. So who are the teams that we will keep an eye on this summer, who are the teams that have played their way out of the picture, who are the surprises and who are the disappointments? Lets take a look.

Over the past few weeks we have talked about the signs of spring. We had March Madness & then the start of the baseball season but the true sign of spring is when the golfers emerge on Augusta. It is time for the Masters and this year’s event is wide open. Remember just a few year’s ago when Tiger Woods was about +180 over the entire field? Now this year he is +180 against Lee Westwood. Could this be the year that Rory McIlroy breaks through to win his first Green Jacket. Will youngster Jordan Spieth continue his push to the top of the golf rankings? Will Bubba Watson go back-to-back? Let’s take a look at odds and make a few picks.

What a way to start the NCAA Tournament. We were less than a half a day into the tournament and two #3 seeds were gone. Second Round action saw #1 seed Villanova and a pair of #2 seeds take an early exit. After Selection Sunday one of the teams that many said shouldn’t have gotten the invite was the UCLA Bruins. Now here they are sitting in the Sweet Sixteen. Not only did we have upsets. We also saw a record number of round one tight games. 10 games ended with a 3 point or less differentials including 5 one-point games. Besides the Cinderella stories and tight games we also have some of the big boys showing off their dominance. Kentucky and Duke won both their games easily by double digits. Wisconsin struggled a bit in Round 2 versus Oregon but still managed to win by 7. There are still a pair of #2s (Arizona & Gonzaga) and #3s (Notre Dame & Oklahoma) out their that can do plenty of damage. So what do the odds look like now?

At the beginning of the season we had the usual talk. A certain team is loaded, can they go all the way and complete the perfect season. This year the team was, the Kentucky Wildcats. John Calipari had put together the top recruiting class in the country full of McDonald All-Americans to go along with a group of experienced players that may a Cinderella run to the NCAA Championship game last year. So would this be the perfect combo to match what the 1975-76 Indiana Hoosiers were the last to do, run the table to an undefeated season? So now as we enter the NCAA Tourney the Wildcats sit at 34-0 and with 6 games away from cutting down the nets in Indianapolis, the end is in site. Still I believe the hardest part is still ahead of them. So many things make it tough. So what could stop them? Who could stop them? What are the odds that they will do it?

So here we go. Pretty much everyone has filled out their resume to get their invites. We have the final weekend of action and then the Conference Tournaments to play, but for most teams the idea of being in or out have been decided. The only thing that now comes into play is the Cinderella factor. Who and how many Conference Champions will be unexpected. How many of those last spots will be taken by unexpected and uninvited guests. Now as I said at the being “Most” teams have been decided. We still have a few bubble teams battling and we also have a fight for the 4 #1 seeds. So lets take a look at how things come into play as we head into the final weekend of the regular season and the conference tourneys.
