(Via @ThomasCarrigan2)

Mike Zunino, Brian Johnson make history: Zunino, taken third by the Seattle Mariners, was joined by Johnson, taken 31st by the Boston Red Sox, to make 2012 the first year Florida has had two players taken in the first round of the MLB Draft. (John Sickels, Baseball Nation)

Three Gators signees drafted: The good news: Lance McCullers, a top-15 talent, slipped to the second round. The bad: Houston, which drafted him, may be able to go well above slot to sign him. Oh, and another Florida signee is already nearing a deal. (John Sickels, Baseball Nation | Steve Adams, MLB Trade Rumors)

Genevieve LaCaze honored again: I'll be honest: I just like typing her name. (GatorZone)

Why Tier 3 rights are so important: If you screw up and only squeeze $5M/year from them, you hamstring your revenue. (Chris Smith, Forbes)

Thoughts on "virality" and "curation": Your non-Gators links of the day. (Neetzan Zimmerman, Gawker | Mark Allen and Jennifer Sharpe, The Awl)
