Sorry for being away this year. I watched 85% of what I usually do. I have some personal and professional obligations. I hope to get back more involved again next year. 1. In Sully I Trust. I am not going to harp on a bunch of negative stuff about the pitchers. The numbers don't lie. Pitching was bad. Think of a Steve Spurrier football team with a bad offense that was still and ok football team. That's what you had this year. Sully is the best in the business with the pitchers. I am not worries one bit here. 2. Overall we just didn't have a Friday night "dude". Dyson was supposed to be that guy. If he stays I would like to see him in a closer role. He thinks too much as a starter about setting up next pitches and pitch count. Tell him to go throw upper 90's with a slider for one inning. Good luck hitters. If we had a Friday dude that was say 8-2 with a 2.50 ERA like we have had for many years, this team hosts a regional. 3. I am excited about the Freshman class. Calilao, Fabian, Young, Acton really carried this team in non conference. They hit some walls, but they were fairly consistent through the year. Sully likes the freshman pitchers, he relied on them down the stretch. That's enough for me. 4. This team was lacking leadership. The upperclassman didn't gel as a leader group IMO. I could sense a bit of a divide between young and old. I don't think it was really anyone's fault, it just sometimes happens. 5. This was a really good offense. I am excited about the offense next year too. I don't know that we will score as many runs, but it should be more efficient from top to bottom. It will be interesting to see where McConnel gets drafted and what that team wants him to do. He's got a long way to go with the glove. Flashes are there. If he wants to play SS, he might come back another year. He had a really good, although did fall off at year end. Hes got a bright future. Selfishly, I hope he comes back. I cant see Dalton leaving unless he just wants to move on. His inability to hit off speed really showed again this year. It was covered a bit last year. Would love for him to stick around and be a leader. He adds some value. 6. Leftwhich and Mace showed they could be that "dude". IMO they were freshman this year. They pitched in spurts last year, but this was a big jump for them. I wish they would have handled it better. They both did show at times they could dominate. I think its about location for them both. They aren't as overpowering as some guys, they cant miss spots against good teams. 7. In Sully I Trust. We made a regional. I was really hoping to get to the regional championship, but oh well. 8. I am going to miss Nelly. A glue guy on offense. Great gator. What say you gator fans?
