GAMETHREAD: @ Florida (3GMS)

It's time to right the ship. We have got to get out of this funk and soon if we want to get back into SR hosting contention. Taking a series at RPI #1 UF will go a very long way towards that goal. And this wont be any easier than the Rebs last weekend.

The Gators have a great pitching staff, with starters who all have an ERA of 3.65 or better and an ace closer in Kevin Chapman (1.59 ERA, 7 saves). They play the best defense in the league. Watch for Daniel Pigott and Austin Maddox at the plate. Interesting that CPM has not given a Saturday or Sunday starter. Is it a motivational tool to get the battery going again or does Mainieri have something more serious in store?

TV is again all over the place, but all 3 will be carried. Note that if you have a schedule from early in the year, tonight's game has been moved back an hour to accommodate a hellacious parking problem due to UF's Commencement tonight.

Weather: Might get a rain out tonight, typical afternoon showers on Saturday possible, clear on Sunday. In case of a wash out, look for a DH on Sunday.
