This season has been a bit of a roller coaster for UF. Starting off high by playing
The Gators will start strong this afternoon against Vandy (37-18, 15-14), putting Patrick Keating (8-0, 3.15) on the mound. Give Kevin O’Sullivan credit. Pitching coaches don’t usually make great managers. But not only has O’Sullivan molded a team who hits line drives (4th in team batting, .307) and steals bases (104, LSU is closest with 77), he’s also rebuilt the Gators pitching staff (4th in team ERA, 4.03) and Keating is the perfect example.
UF lacks the power numbers that college teams ride into
The Gators have an outside shot at hosting a regional, but if they end up as a two in the NCAAs, they will be dangerous.
