Baseball America thinks the Ivy Title is staying here.

We're only a couple months away, folks...

A fellow former beat writer informs me that Baseball America (subscription required) has posted its Ivy League preview. BA predicts Harvard edging out Brown by a game for the division title and going on to beat Princeton in the league championship series. Steffan Wilson is the pre-season Player of the Year. The BA preseason All-Conference team consists of Josh Klimkiewicz (mispelled as "Klinkiewicz" but at least he's finally recognized by somebody) at first, Wilson at third, Morgan Brown at short, Lance Salsgiver wedged in as the DH and Shawn Haviland as one of three Ivy pitchers spotlighted, and projects sophomore transfer Tom Stack-Babich as the league's top newcomer.

The write-up notes the departure of some top talent from rival teams, including, thank heavens, this guy, and that Brown's Paul Christian will move to the outfield after hurting himself in the Cape league. Wilson, draft ineligible, also projects as the league's third most promising pro prospect, after 1 and 2.
