    This is the part I'm most concerned with. I think we will wear Poché out with an average sized strike zone.

    I like Head behind the plate, but frankly I'm okay with Head anywhere in the stadium :D

    I think it is safe to say that we more calls regarding strike zone than LSU did last night.

    If so, hopefully he gets bounced quickly as we will undoubtedly be treated to endless pics of his sweetheart of a dad, former basketball ref Karl Hess.

    How about a little game for tonight:
    Like the trainers and team volunteers/ assistants who pick Gators who they think will go yard in the game. We should do the same here. If your pick hits a homer, you have to get doused with a cold beverage.

    So, pick two. Plus, announce the beverage.

    I'm going with:
    India and Larson. 2-liter Coke Zero.

    Wow, LSU is -260 tonight. Not giving UF or Dyson much chance here.

    I kinda like that.

    I was thinking the same thing.

    JJ is due for some damage with his bat!

    GO Gators!

    Last time the Gators faced Poche' Deacon Liput was 1 for 2 with 3 walks and 3 stolen bases. I hope he is the lead-off man tonight.

    JJ and Liput.

    If it is raining I will go outside until I am soaked or the next batter is up.

    If it isn't raining then I will wait until it is. That shouldn't take too long in Gainesville in the summer.

    That was hilarious the way they drew a circle around it and then took turns guarding it, and yelled at groundskeepers and ballboys who kept trying to pick it up. But I'm not sure that "rally cup" was the right name for it since we were never actually behind in the game?

    ^^ Baseball superstitions are the best and funniest superstitions. And don't anybody here dare say you don't believe in superstitions. It's bad luck to say that!

    Once again tonight while the game is being played I will be beyond the reach of cell phones and the internet. I will read the thread in the morning when I get in -- so make it a good one and bring home a gator win. I will be grading the thread on a curve ( y'all will get points at the get-go due to not having Gatorgal).

    Speaking of superstitions, what was the deal with that bearded guy wearing a bright orange Miami Marlins jersey who was sitting right behind home plate last night? Why a Marlins jersey? I don't know who he was or why he was there...but he better be there again tonight! With that same jersey on!

    The difference between winning and losing in baseball is often so small that you have to attend to superstitions even if you don't really believe in them. You do it just in case it happens to be true.
