    @Gatorgal04--

    Are you going to be able to post if/when any of our drafted recruits sign or enroll at school?

    Thanks in advance!

    Checking the website that @gatorcal kindly provided on the original draft thread, I've added which recruits have already signed. Seems like the only one still in question is Mason Denaburg, who was drafted #27.

    I'll keep checking and will also post when our current players sign.

    I suspect Brady Smith will still play some play some first base against lefties and perhaps even third base

    Stats from this past season:
    Miozzi: .291 BA; 2 HR; 21 RBI; 18 R;
    4 errors; .467 runners caught stealing %
    Howard: .327 BA; 4 HR; 30 RBI; 37 R; 23 SB; 13 E
    Alintoff: 2-5; 57 IP; 4.11 ERA; 77K; 66 H; 9 BB; 88-91 FB
    Hemenway: 6-3; 76 IP; 2.84 ERA; 89K; 70 H; 22 BB
    89-90 FB

    Would like to hear more about these. Read where Hemenway is a diamond in the rough and being a lefty will get a good look.

    Archeologists in Florence, Italy were digging through the remains of a 14th century church and were excited to report they came across numerous documents and manuscripts experts are attributing to Dante Aligheiri, author of the Divine Comedy including the curious find of Dante writing about an additional level of torment reserved for people who make all too goofy jokes about the futuristic sport called baseball.

    With Byrne and Denaburg signed and Bell shutting it down, that leaves the roster sitting at 37, 2 over the 35 limit. Florida usually doesn't keep the full limit so look for some names to drop between now and January. Currently looking at:

    3 Seniors
    10 Juniors
    15 Sophs
    9 Freshmen

    Florida usually keeps

    Denaburg has signed and Kennan Bell has left the program. Stories may not have broken yet, but isn't that why y'all are on this site, to hear things first?
