"The Admirals lost four key players to graduation, but return enough talent to warrant their No. 4 preseason ranking and the expectation that they'll win a lot. Junior Nicky Delmonico will move to shortstop this season to replace Curt Powell, who hit .504 with eight home runs in 2009. Delmonico, the son of former Tennessee coach Rod, hit .465 last season with 12 homers. Junior lefthander Philip Pfiefer has gone 25-5, 1.35 in the last two seasons and will likely be looked upon to fill the hole left by lefthander Jordan Cooper, now at Ole Miss. Righthander Nick Williams, who went 6-0, 0.82 in 43 innings last season, will also have a big role on the pitching staff. Buckner likes his one-two punch."
