    SWEEP! We want the sweep!

    In case you're wondering, Sully stated in the post-game interview that Cags would pitch and hit as the DH, and stay in as DH when he's off the mound. They need him to do that vs. Miami next weekend, so he'll do it tomorrow too. I'm sure Cincinnati is thrilled.

    TV: SEC Network + (on-line). Didn't see as many complaints today, so hopefully it was working for everyone. Cincinnati vs. #7 Florida | Watch ESPN
    Radio: WRUF 850 AM / 98.1 FM Listen Live - ESPN 98.1 FM - 850 AM WRUF
    Stats: Better Sat so maybe some butts were kicked. StatBroadcast Live Stat Feed
    Weather: There was a large tailgate of Cincinnati fans/parents in the parking lot when I got there 2 hours before the game. A friend commented, and I said "Of course, they couldn't wait to leave Cincinnati weather and come down here. They've been planning this for months!" 79 deg to start and 85 at the finish. 0-1% chance of precip. W wind @ 6-9 = blowing/meandering out to right field. Definitely more than a waft.

    Starting Gator: #14 So LHP Caglianone (1-0, 0.00)
    Starting Earl: #33 RJr RHP Hopewell (0-0, 9.00)

    Go Gators!

    It might end up a breath of fresh air. Or perhaps the wind will be whisking to right. Here is my favorite, it will be a spanking breeze. Actually the best way to describe it tomorrow is the wind will be sweeping out to right along with the Bearcats.

    Hoping that we get to see Prevask more on Sunday. I'm not sure he gets a starting spot in the OF but he is hitting the ball very well lately. Cags will be the DH so we may have to wait until the midweeks if Prevask is to hit in the DH. We have 6 hot bats right now and Robertson doing better before getting hurt. Shelnut might need a break since his average is down to .261 and leads the team in strikeouts.
    Its amazing Halter has 3 hits this year, 2 of them by bunts. Perhaps we see a trend.

    I agree with you on Prevesk. I think he’s a very mature and patient hitter or at least that’s what we will see given the chance.

    Halter is back at third. Might we see another bunt for a hit. Cags at DH but no Prevask yet. Shelnut sits which is probably good.

    I'm not at the stadium today. Hopefully Gal will chime in soon with the lineups. I'll be on the road for the first half of the game. I hope to listen to the radio call and check in later.
