All I know about the offense today is that Matthews needs to be in the lineup, but I think Hoover plays a more stable/speedy RF. Otherwise, I'm excited for when the seniors start producing. I have faith in Wheaton, Kvistad and DeWitt to be as dependable as always, but I'd really like to see Matthews protect Kvistad and the righties break up the lefty heavy lineup more.

After Week 1:
  1. Adams (L) - 2B
  2. Reynoso (R) - SS
  3. Lorenz (L) - LF
  4. Kvistad (L) - 1B
  5. Matthews (L) - DP
  6. Wheaton (R) - C
  7. DeWitt (L) - 3B
  8. Ocasio (L) - CF/P
  9. Hoover (R) - RF


Things we know now after weekend 1:

- Couldn't agree more about the Ocasio/Voss CF.  That should be a permanent thing.
- Matthews can hit.  She does need to be in the line up.  I still am leery of her ACL.  It sounded like she can play OF as well, but she definitely needs a bat in her hands.  (I had to depend on a radio broadcast for the first 4 games.)
- DeWitt had no issues playing 3B.
- Hoover may have found her last year's early form.
- Oh yeah, KB hasn't been called for any illegal pitches. [wink]

It's kinda good that the lowest averages for the players that saw action this past weekend are: Wheaton, DeWitt, and Kvistad (in that they are tried and true and will gain their form soon).

Nic looked fine this weekend, engaged and ready. She will be herself pretty soon. Nell and KK had a slow start, but no reason to believe they will not produce like last year. All played solid defense! We will be fine!

Gators play tomorrow against North Florida Ospreys at 6pm. I am sure he will pitch Barnhill, so he can stress me out. But maybe Barnhill gets her stuff together...we will see...Not sure if this is on SEC+/WatchESPN...Appears to say it on SEC+, but I do not see it on the WatchESPN schedule.....

If not, then someone needs to periscope it...
-
I did see Romanello in uniform this past weekend, which was good to see....
-
Maybe Lugo and Chronister will pitch some...Haven't seen Lugo yet and I want to see how Chronister has progressed....

Looking forward to seeing Florida this weekend in Lafayette. I don't think we can win any (but hope spring eternal) but it will be a learning experience for a very young and inexperienced team either way. If you need any culinary ideas let me know.

so far chronicler is pitching much better than last year. Granted she hardly had any innings last season plus she has only pitched again mediocre Illinois state team. I did notice from periscope she did look more comfortable in the circle.
I did not see lugo pitch but did pitch 2 scoreless innings. With 2 strike outs. I hope Walton decides to either start lugo, with chronister coming in relief or chronister with lugo in relief tomorrow to give them both more experience.

My Watch ESPN app shows tomorrow’s game v. UNF on SEC+. Both Saturday games v. lthr Ragin Cajuns will be on ESPN3. I have Cox Cable in Gainesville. May be different from other sources, and Cox switches stuff around sometimes.

Walton may have his best hitting team since 2011.

Good.  That was their weakness against OU.  Once you got past 1-4, it was a struggle to score consistently last year.

It's clear from 1 AB that Romanello will be special too. 

If Adams doesn't watch out, DeWitt's moving back to 2nd and Hoover to 3rd so Romanello can play right. [biggrin]

I don't think I've ever seen a homer hit at KSP as far as Romanello's blast!  [eek]  That ball had to have at least 50 feet of elevation over the fence!  (Too bad it was just foul.)  Did you see Lorenz's expression when she was discussing it with Romanello back in the dugout!  If someone like Lorenz was that impressed, you know that ball was crushed.

I am thoroughly impressed with the offensive support the freshmen are providing thus far.  I know it's early and the competition has been a mixed bag, but Kvistad, DeWitt, Wheatly, etc. have found the last 6 games challenging.  I don't want to jinx them, but it would be awesome if our offense actually caught up with our pitching.  [biggrin]

Hoover out of place in RF unless Walton is trying to hide her but keep her bat...that I get. She had worst fielding % last year with 6 errors, second worst on team so not sure how confident Walton may be in parking her back at 3rd. That's not her issue though. It's her bat or, lack thereof. She led the team in Ks last year & also had the fewest hits & lowest BA of all the starters. Maybe she went thru her Sophmore slump her first year. It's all there with her no doubt.

I'm glad to see kvistad with a couple of hits tonight. Love freshmen contributing. It's early but I love the fact that 1-9 some how is contributing , rather it's a walk
Single or sac.

Romanello is one sweet left-handed bat.

The idea that she doesn't get 150 PAs this year in that lineup seems nutty to me
