    For our only mid-week game this coming week, FSU comes to town with their 14-0 record. I will be out of town and unable to post play-by-play, but I'm sure you guys can add enough info to keep the thread going.

    any idea who might be our starting pitcher? I know it is a mid-week game, but it is an undefeated F$U squad

    Since he wasn't needed Sunday, might Neely toss a few innings?

    I suggested that to a friend at the ballpark yesterday. Start Neely Tuesday night -- with a clean slate, on a 55-60 pitch count and if he can go 3 or 4-- and get his mojo back a huge plus and then consider him in the mix for weekend SP slot- in the coming weeks. As Sully said in his post game comments-- it all starts on the mound, SP sets the tone for the entire game and takes pressure off the hitters.

    I think that is really a great idea. I would love to see him come in on a clean slate, bases empty. Usually it is bases loaded in a critical situation. I think he could be dominant.

    Evidently from their fast start they must be swinging the bat ok—that said—regardless of who’s on the mound our guys are going to have to pitch and pitch to spots—not just throw to the heart of the plate.

    Everyone should know this. Starting Neely may be what he needs and what the pitching staff needs. If Sully does make this his call we will hope for the best and see how it plays out.

    Let’s get after’em Gators—THIS IS OUR HOUSE!!!

    Hoping Neely. Heard it may be but was not from a great source. If it comes true, we will change that to reliable source haha.

    I love to see this, and I think it actually makes a lot of sense as it would be a great opportunity to build Neely’s confidence back and also give us a great shot to win a pretty important game actually. This is not your normal midweek game, obviously.

    Where the crawfish stay.
    Andrew Armstrong
    Senior LHP
    Led FSU in appearances out of the pen in 2023. Striking out 57 batters in 58 innings. He is their most experienced pitcher.
    Stands at a respectable 6’2 frame
    And weighs a whopping 154 lbs.
    That’s is NOT a typo.
    This years stats include
    2-0 record
    0 ERA
    4.2 innings
    7 K’s
    0 BB

    another exciting game where out Freshman arms pitch against their seniors

    Sully’s track record has always been to pitch non-weekend guys vs them during regular season games. That way they haven’t yet seen our weekend guys come Supers….
