Yahoo Sports/ Fewest Holes to Fill

If the Buckeyes were to make a run to Omaha, it looks like it won't be a Cinderella story and one that catches everyone off guard.

Kendall Rogers compilied a list of the top 10 teams with the fewest holes to fill.

Now obviously as Buckeyes we know we return quite a bit after losing just Hale, Arp, and Miller. What it surprising is to see the continued recognization of the Buckeyes abilities.

After being a "top 30" team, Rogers once again states the Bucks have Omaha potential.

Ohio State

Key losses. P Jake Hale, 3B Justin Miller

Analysis. This Ohio State team has the ability to make it to Omaha. The Buckeyes must replace stud reliever Jake Hale and power-hitting infielder Justin Miller. But the team as a whole is in great shape. The Buckeyes welcome back leading hitter Ryan Dew in addition to Dan Burkhart, Zach Hurley, Michael Stephens, Cory Kovanda. They also return ace pitcher Alex Wimmers in addition to Eric Best, Drew Rucinski and Dean Woloslansky. The Bucks made a small statement by reaching the Tallahassee Regional title game last season, but Omaha will be the expectation next spring. It will be a fun fall in Columbus, Ohio.

The rest of the list

You better believe it will be a fun fall.
