    And 4-22 since that last homer, so it's not just a power drought

    As a batter you can adjust as long as the zone is consistent….. consistent it was not last night. When their big lefty came in all of a sudden mid calf pitches became strikes which he had not called all game. The outside zone was inconsistent at times as well.

    There were more obviously low pitches called strikes last night especially with their John Cadelaria on the mound than any single game I can remember watching.

    Inconsistency in how he calls the strike zone is the worst thing a home plate umpire can do to hitters IMHO. It’s at it’s worst when it is one-sided (which it appeared to be last night).

    He’s good. Thx for thinking of me. The entire anatomy is back to normal now. Hopefully the next game is less stressful.

    Hah, name from the past. I played against John Candelaria. I think he should be around my age. CYO ball in NY (Brooklyn), he was probably 12/13 at the time, around 6-2/6-3 at that time, ugly and gangly. He pitched 3/4 arm lefty. i did get a single off him, and at the time I remember saying it would be brutal to face him if i was a lefty.

    Great subhead, for Gator fans that game should go down in history and always be known as the "Sermons on the Mound" game.

    The university founded by a supposed miracle worker couldn't get one when it counted against the Gators. Guess Steve Spurrier is right when he used to say, "God smiled down on the Gators today!" After all, the sun is orange and the sky is blue.
