Dickey leads Gators

It looking more and more like Gavin Dickey is making the right decision in focusing strictly on baseball in his final year as a Gator. Not good news for the camp that hopes Dickey makes a surprise return to football to fill the third string QB role. He had four runs driven in yesterday's win against FAMU. The overall stats don't lie either. In the measure of On Base Plus Slugging Percentage, Dickey leads all Gator hitters:

M. LaPorta 513 538 1051
B. LeClerc 487 533 1020
G. Dickey 471 615 1086
B. Jeroloman 462 536 998
A. Davis 455 429 884
D. Cash 381 188 569
M. Gaski 381 133 514
C. Woods 310 280 590
B. McArthur 281 285 566
The Gators used a committee of pitchers in the win.  I am becoming more and more impressed with Josh Edmondson who pitched two scoreless innings and striking out 4. LaPorta who leads all Gators in that all important stat On Base Percentage (OBP) added another long ball to his running total.

Tomorrow, #1 pitcher Bryan Ball takes the mound against Missouri who are in town along with the Big 10's  Ohio State and the ACC's Wake Forest in the Baseball Classic sponsored by Pepsi.
