    Go Gators! Great Great job by Leftwich and deserves another starting look next weekend against Auburn.

    You want to take out Aleman or Barco or Mace?? Aleman has had one bad inning since February. Hard to take him out of the rotation. So Barco or Mace?

    Could JL start the next game? Go for a couple innings and bring in Barco?

    I doubt it—45-50 minute shutdown then crank it back up, well I wouldn’t be in favor of it. Too much of an “11” move solely for the purpose of a win, screw the player.

    I still think I prefer Aleman in relief, use in 2 or 3 of the weekend games. But IF he maintains like this, Jack is better than all 3 of the starters....heck so is Scott.

    I'm thinking Barco unless he shuts them down today. But with Barco's 5.22 ERA I'm thinking if Jack is ready he would be an improvement.

    Mace has had some bad innings recently.

    He looked locked for the first inning and then he didn't for the second and recovered to pitch well for a while.

    But out of the bullpen, after the glove slamming, L has been stellar. He shoved the FSU bats somewhere I cannot say on this forum. Another awesome performance today. I think that he might have found his mojo.

    And Fabian is barreling up the ball.

    We might get on a roll.

    Yep have to give Scott credit with the lowest ERA at 1.69 of any pitcher with over 10 innings pitched. He has pitched 37.1 innings and seems to be improving as the year goes along. Without his mid game relief no telling where this team would be at now.

    Hope that is going well… We actually had a bunt for a hit today. Led to us and scoring a big insurance run

    Two good signs that Mace is still doing good things on the mound for us. In 50 innings pitched so far has 66 strike outs and only given up 3 HRs. Shame he gave up number 3 today but as long as he keeps the SO numbers up he has a good chance to pitch thru some innings for us.

    JL has been outstanding this week and seems to have his Mojo back-- I've not seen him that 'complete command' attitude in some time. Gotta start him next weekend. I've often thought he's our top guy. In my view, Barco has to show something special today against an average team for him to stay in the weekend rotation. I had high expectations for Barco but not sure why he's not quite put it together.
    Can we work on bunting this week? Gators have two sac bunts all year. Not pretty with spotty hitting.
    Let's get the sweep and let Sully worry about the rotation.
