    Maybe you should relax and stop acting like you are the authority on these boards. I can guarantee you that I post more knowledge and information here than you do. Good night young fellow. 2017... LMFAO!

    rought nite, rewatched the game after I turned it off. We dont have the arms in the bullpen we thought we had. It is time to blow it up and go get some arms out of the portal.
    we were a very good catch in the 1st game away from winning the title. Jac didnt have it tonight, hopefully mentally he can get over whatever was in his head during the series.
    Hudson was squeezed by the ump, so was Brandon...after rewatching it was 2 very different strike zone both days. No whining about it, happened..dont believe it go watch the games again. We have to be aggressive like LSU and others are in the portal. We need at least 3 arms to me out of the portal who are proven commodioties and I am sure some will be there. We already got the guy from UCLA, we need the other 3 on top of that. Hopefully Cappolla finally gets healthy. I think Neely should get a chance at the rotation. He is a better starter to me then close.
    hire a FT hitting coach, we strike out entirely too much, eye discipline is pretty bad and I have been saying that for years now.
    But all in all a great year and we came in 2nd so cant complain too much..GO Gators!!!

    IMO overstating the need for pitchers from the portal, one more is probably the number. We have a strong recruiting class of arms.
    We set offensive records all over the place, we don't need to fire Jeroloman. Not saying I wouldn't like some different approaches at times but by and large the guy has done a great job.

    relying on freshman at this level is risky at best. We had 3 guys pitching yesterday who honestly have not cut it here. Sure a few others will leave. We need to be aggresive in the portal

    I thought you were ignoring me. I was giving you the benefit of the doubt. If you don’t drink, I don’t know what the explanation is for your incoherent nonsense.

    See how you are I give you an olive branch and you come back at me like that... I just made up my mind just because of you. I will NOT be writing any articles (football article) here in Gator Country because of you and people like you. Thank you for making this decision easier for me.

    Oh I won't be going way, I will make sure you know I'm here. Haters like you need to be put in their place... I refuse to run from that inevitability.

    We are replacing 3 probable first round picks. It’s obvious we need either transfers or guys to step up.

    Fisher is plenty good to get legit SP time. Besides that we need a high level transfer or someone to make a big leap

    Im in the Neely start camp. Figure out the back end of your pen through the season.

    Offensively Langford may be the best pure hitter in UF history. Obviously a huge hole.

    We have some young guys that will progress and Shelton is an elite transfer. Rivera bombed in the CWS but he’s still a good shortstop and a fine bat to replace.

    We will have the power to dominate mediocre pitchers. But we need to make sure we have technical enough hitters that can adapt against the best arms

    Evans obviously played himself into a full time role. That isn’t even debatable at this point.

    Overreacting to yesterday is not wise. We hit a perfect storm of 3 consecutive painfully short starts vs an elite opponent. Virtually no one can withstand what we saw..... averaging about 2 innings per starter AND an extra inning game AND some guys already gone to the portal. Flush yesterday.
    Everyone relies on freshmen to some extent in college baseball. LSU just did.

    Austin is an All American type arm so we have the high level transfer....I would like one more proven arm, maybe a closer since Sully has said Neely will move back to starting. Have to also wonder if Cags moves to closer

    Cags may need to give up pitching. Relief role means he’d have to DH. That’s a big negative draft wise

    There is a reason why 2 way players are rare. It only makes sense if you are elite at both. Cags needs far better command to be a MLB prospect on the bump

    To be clear I’m not saying Cags is a bad pitcher. He’s not. Just not good enough to be two way future wise. Similar to Skenes.

    This was his first year doing both at this level. It’s not completely out of the realm of possibility that he can improve. He’s also still pretty fresh off tj surgery. Some guys take a while before settling back in, and I can imagine that’s twofold for a two way guy. His arm is live, no doubt about that. If he can get his mechanics in check, there’s definitely a possibility he could be special on the mound. Lets see how the off season goes before writing him off.

    He was surprisingly effective this year, even with the wild thing approach.

    I didn’t ask anyone to agree with me. What are you babbling about?
