    Dude is REALLY fast.

    Actually there are a lot of fast guys on the Vandy team. They can go from runners on first and second and the double play in order to two runners in scoring position in the blink of an eye

    Bazza, cover your eyes, because I know you don't like reading this kind of stuff.

    The Vandy fans had no fortitude. They did a great job of mocking the left-right heckle when their next batter hit the HR (I think to give them the lead), but then they were mostly silent after that.

    Except for Bill's and Wing's favorite guy, that whistling fellow, he seemed to have some staying power.

    Go GATORS!

    I sit not that far behind the visiting team's dugout this season. The Vandy players are not very classy with what they yell at our pitchers.

    This was pretty much the theme of Sully's postgame. Loved hearing Sully sound so positive and actually used the word "fun." Mace battling the way he did was a real joy to watch. I thought he got robbed in the 8th, but I haven't gone back to watch that inning yet.

    Go GATORS!

    I don't have the cat bird seat that I had in years past but it looked like the hitter looked at strike three three times.

    Leiter looked OK for a freshman pitcher, but not the new name your right handed Hall of Fame pitcher. Did he have an off night? He certainly got a favorable strike zone.

    Maybe Jud Fabian had a great night come the draft.

    Yes sir they did, one of the best games I’ve been to since regionals a couple years ago and a college World Series in Omaha. Was a great day in Gainesville.

    It was a great win, but it wasn't the great baseball game I was expecting. Leiter is legit and we hammered him. Mace has great stuff and he got hammered early.

    I was expecting something like a 3-2 game that could go either way.

    No complaints about a game where we score in double digits to defeat a great pitcher.

    Big one tomorrow. Here’s to hoping we get an early lead and Hunter and the pen do the rest.

    Romero was pinch hit for late in game, apparently injured his knee, I’m guessing when he stomped on home plate after his home run.
