    We need to use this week's series to get re-focused and dialed in for the stretch post-season run on the horizon--

    Let's do this Gators!

    I would have had it been Fri-Sun. As is, can't take 2 days off. Too many other trips planned.

    Starkvegas is a brilliant place to watch college baseball if you ever get the chance.

    Ahh--the smell of the outfield covered with hovering grill smoke and the sounds of 10,000 strong ringing those damn cowbells----

    Hoping JJ is still going to be on a tear this series and is going to be red-hot for the post season.

    Is there even radar in Starkvegas? Surely they just look at Memphis and then Jackson and draw a line!

    On State's write-up, Tommy Mace is predicted to start tonight with Singer going tomorrow. Have you heard this?

    I am trying to think of the rationale. Save Jack so that he gets on an earlier rotation and is ready for Game 1 of the Regional? Kowar went Game 1 last year.

    Save Jack to pitch Game 1 of Hoover??

    Jack needs a break this weekend so let's go with Tommy?

    Didn't want to start Brady on one day's less rest for a series that doesn't matter??

    That's odd because Apple put this out today [EDIT: it's been updated to reflect Mace throwing tonight]:
