    Nothing incorrect about your statements. But 5 wins in, never losing in this tourney and some tight games, one might be a bit more congratulatory to the Gators.

    5 games in, one would expect things to work on....and there are. Barnhill pitches hard and no one is going to hit every spot every time...that means some long balls.

    You may wish to acknowledge that we have young pitchers who MAY be better backups than we expected or that Barnhill had 11 SO's in 5 innings.

    You heard it here first. She will be the next Aleshia Ocasio. But instead of the outfield on her non-pitching days, it will be second base. It will take a couple seasons -- just as it did for Ocasio -- but mark my words.

    There are 7 Gators batting over .300 and the overall team batting average is .327. 33 runs in 5 games is 6.6 runs/game.

    Nobody is taking Hannah Adams away from 2nd base. She is yet to commit an error in starting every game since she arrived on campus.

    Graduation will -- lol. She's a sophomore; Farley's a freshman.

    Remember, Ocasio got moved all around the diamond for a couple seasons until she got the position she liked best.

    Yes, graduation will- LOL. She is so efficient at 2nd base that she is sometimes under appreciated plus she hits line drives with power and runs like the wind. Best 2nd baseman in the NCAA.

    There's a good chance we'll move her back to her natural position after Reynoso graduates.

    Yep, we're really set defensively in the infield for at least the next 2 years.
