Perfect Game unveiled their Preseason Top 25 of the 2019 college baseball season on Wednesday and pegged LSU at No. 1. Here's what they said about the Tigers:

LSU is guided by Paul Mainieri, whose Tigers finished as the runner-up just two years ago with several familiar faces. Outfielders Antoine Duplantis and Zach Watson and staff ace Zack Hess were all drafted yet returned for another season. Shortstop Josh Smith and another starting pitcher, Eric Walker, missed most or all of the 2018 season due to injuries and appear to be ready to return healthy and strong.

Add in still-developing young talent and another strong wave of incoming freshmen and you have one of the deepest rosters in college baseball.

Is CPM the coach? Did we hire a championship batting assistant coach?

Looking forward to losing meaningless midweek games just to watch the Rant explode and call for PM to be fired. We will be dominant this year.

Looking forward to another season where we start out hot, hit SEC play and start to be handled, but get it together and win the SEC tournament, and then fail to make the CWS... again!

Go ahead and underestimate how good this team will be this year. last time lsu baseball was ranked #1 in the preseason rankings was '09 and we all know how that year turned out. don't be such a Debbie downer.
