    At $6.25/lb, which is a pretty fair price, that's a ton of money for cheese.

    I wish him well, whether he beats the odds and gets to the Show or finds his way into coaching. Maybe we'll see him again in Gainesville as a student assistant coach one day.

    I've gotta wonder if, without Amick and Halter, Sully or another coach is getting on the phone (or text) to say to D.Fab, "How you doin'?"

    That’s awesome for the 17th Round!!

    Good for Colby. I know 10th Round last pick slot is 164,000. I know in the latter rounds players can sign for up to $125,000 but I would have expected $75-85,000 so Colby did well. Couldn’t happen to a better guy.

    Kris Armstrong went undrafted. I'm shaking my head at that one. This is based on the 'all or nothing' approach that MLB has become. Wouldn't that make Kris ideal for the modern age hitting approach??

    Baffling to say the least. It’s like putting square pegs in round holes.

    As of a few minutes ago, Langford & Rivera remain unsigned, as do Echavarria & Russell. I highly doubt Stone Russel sign, as he wasn't drafted until the 19th round. The longer Echavarria goes unsigned, the better our chances, I think/hope. Even if he does sign, it looks like we've got several quality pitchers in the class who may be able to contribute right away.

    That would be pretty huge if Echavarria made it to campus.

    Good for him.

    After what I saw late this past season he is better than 17th round. I was hoping he would come back to improve his draft position but I have to wish him well. Great Gator.

    Don’t get it. I’ve seen mashers from that conference go undrafted several times.

    Yes sir, I think we’ve got a couple that will help quite a bit.

    Dang. 18th round pick, I was hoping he would come to UF and compete for an infield spot.

    Wyatt gets a cool $8 mil. from the Rangers, excellent, and well deserved. After Skenes he is the best player in the class. Since we moved back to G'ville in 2015, Wyatt is by far the best UF player I've seen in all aspects of the game. India and Singer were oustanding but Wyatt is special. Not an easy talent to replace.

    Hope Sully has some tricks up his sleeve, cause the roster has some gaping holes at the moment

    Yikes. First the ucla pitcher then stone Russell signs from the 18th round. We hardly signed a position player in this years class.
