    I agree, we should have a better read things are sorted out for real when we complete the preseason, mound is the only place I have any real concerns, gotta get solid Friday and Saturday starters we can depend on

    This team will still be young. The way I expect the order you will have sophomores in center, right, first base, and second base. I think there will be a freshman at short and one that platoons at third and catcher. We need the arms to come through.

    Sophs in college baseball aren’t young imo. Having only 2-3 freshmen contribute heavily would not be a young team imo. Last year UF had what, something like 8, when including the top 5-7 pitchers by IP?

    I hear ya. Just glad all mine(AU) are returning. Maybe at least 1 SP will stay healthy this year. But all the FR innings last year should benefit going forward.

    Beating up on #4 Miami, having become a nice tradition over the last decade, should have us climbing the charts early. I looked it up. We are 28-8 since 2010!

    Miami that high surprised me a little. I know they are coming off pretty nice year, but didn't they lose top couple arms? Maybe not,, to early to look still..lol

    University of Coral Gables returns 48 of their 61 starts from last year. McKendry (JR, RHP) was their lone departure (9th round, Tampa). McKendry had the Friday night win against us last year. If I can't make the Kentucky hoops game, I'd love to be down there for the baseball series.

    Mark Dark is a fun place to watch a game. I probably still have a friend down there from the ‘06 series.

    Of all the places I have been, no easier place in the country to "make friends" than where UCG plays. I met two old dudes that were still bitter about the flop (one of the mid-90's regionals). They've come up to GAINESVILLE, and I've had to remind them that they should be happy because they were winning (they didn't seem to like that too much). Still, they are a bit LSU-ish in terms of their abrasive nature and their desire to have a good time. I miss the rivalry in football, and enjoy it for baseball (especially since we've won 30 of the past 38 or whatever it is).

    I wonder what DreadnaughtCane is up to these days (or whatever is name was). We don't run too many folks off, but I think he high tailed it out of here shortly after Sully arrived (HiFi may have helped with that a little bit, who knows).

    Bless you, Brother! That's a pretty stat to look at. Don't forget we knocked them out of the regional with a 2-0 effort toward the end of the 2009 campaign. So 30 of the past 38! Jim Morris had a beautiful high kick right before being ejected. Have to dig up that image somewhere.
