    I think that move must be made today ! AL “right now “is not ready to compete. He will in time but not today.. with that being said when they leave him in the line up and goes 3-5 with a HR and 3 rbi I can say I told u so

    Hmmm, not sure about this as neither are hitting much. With series won playing with house money so may give Lang another game as right now he’s just missing fastballs. His track record Will make it hard for Sully to pull him out of the lineup. Clutch kid that will come around.

    You could lump Cailao, Armstrong, Cal, Lang, Acton together in a similar hitting bucket.......3/13, 5/19, 5/19, 7/30, 6/24. Sully has mentioned some guys missing signs, wonder if KC has gotten the pine for that (pretty sure Acton has been one of the culprits there too)?

    Honestly, it was a very nice hit. He had an inside-out swing taking the ball to RF. Hit it square. A really nice approach. Looked good.

    I think we are only 4-5 games behind FSU and Miami in the all-time series now. Sully has completely turned this around and I expect we catch and pass both in the next 3-5 years.

    Without a doubt. Kirby turned his head seemingly randomly and started jawing. immediately. Who does that unless they're responding to someone else?

    Honestly I have no problem with Kirby barking.....even if he was the one who started it!!! I do not think he was but it does not matter to me. We have the talent to be really good this year and sometimes you need to play with an edge. I liked everything about the weekend including this and Cory throwing down the "U". IT is what rivalries are all about. It is what fuels the fire!

    I really liked the grit of the team the last 4 games. 3 were extra innings and we never quit. We did it with different lineups and different guys carrying the load. All the making of a great "team". It appears these guys enjoying playing the games and share in each other's successes!

    I have no idea what the rest of the year will hold but I am more optimistic that last year was simply a down year. Looks like this roster is back to be great Gator teammates! That is when you build success!
