'mkay Sean, UF is looking good.  I almost walked on when I was there, but chose to just get my engineering degree.  Long story, if we ever hook up again, I'll tell you about it.  Maybe by the time we're both around 70.  Anyway, jump on the orange and blue bandwagon!  Miami turned me down, so it is so much better when UF beats them.

Damn, BJ just spanked an outside pitch to push a run in.  The kid is good.

OUCH!

Florida pitcher Johnson struck in head by ball

HOOVER, Ala. — University of Florida pitcher Brian Johnson sustained a concussion after getting struck in the back of the head by a ball.

Johnson lay on the ground for several minutes Saturday before being carted off on a stretcher. A Florida spokesman says he sustained a mild concussion but tests at a local hospital showed no fractures, bruises or bleeding. The spokesman says Johnson was released and went to the team hotel.

Johnson crouched low on the mound after a wild pitch while catcher Mike Zunino attempted to throw out a runner at second base in the first inning of a Southeastern Conference tournament semifinal game against Georgia.

Johnson immediately covered his head with both hands as he collapsed to the ground after getting hit. Teammates knelt around the mound.

eh, I've hit lots of people, and been hit.  He's young.  He'll shake it off.  Specially tonight, as they are about to win the conference championship.  Go Gators!

Gators ready this time at College World Series

After Florida left Omaha quickly in last year's College World Series, Gators coach Kevin O'Sullivan put together a long list of things he would do differently if the Gators made it back.

Twelve months later, he's put the list to good use as the Gators (50-17) meet Texas (49-17) at 7 tonight on ESPN in the first night game of this year's CWS.

The day after beating Mississippi State to claim the Super Regional, O'Sullivan called a meeting and started using that list.

Quote
Either Brian Johnson or Austin Maddux needs to be a factor.

Johnson (a concussion in the SEC Tournament) and Maddox (a foot injury in the NCAA regional) are great hitters and pitchers. It's like losing four players, almost. Florida's depth is great and, realistically, no one can expect either to be sharp or even ready when the first pitch is thrown tonight.

If one or the other heals enough and plays well, it would be an emotional lift that can get a team on a roll.

Brian just got robbed.  He hit a home run that was confirmed by the video, but the imps thought it bounced off the top of the fence. Bastards. Go Gators. Winning right now. 7-4 top o the eighth.

Five Gator Baseball Players Earn Preseason All-American Honors

University of Florida junior left-hander/first baseman Brian Johnson (Cocoa Beach, Fla.), junior infielder/right-hander Austin Maddox (Jacksonville, Fla.), senior infielder/outfielder Preston Tucker (Tampa, Fla.), sophomore right-hander Karsten Whitson (Chipley, Fla.) and junior catcher Mike Zunino (Cape Coral, Fla.) were each named to the 2012 National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA) Pro-Line Athletic Preseason All-America Team released on Wednesday. The five selections from head coach Kevin O’Sullivan’s club were the most nationally.

A first-team choice to the organization’s 12th annual team in the utility spot, Johnson was a semifinalist for the 2011 John Olerud Two-Way Player of the Year Award. A first-team All-SEC selection, Johnson compiled an 8-3 record with a 3.62 earned run average in 15 starts on the mound spanning 79.2 innings. The left-hander was third on the Orange and Blue with 72 strikeouts and limited opponents to a .253 batting average. Johnson hit .307 with 29 RBI, 26 runs and 18 extra-base hits (11 doubles, five homers and two triples).

Baseball Analyst, Jim Callis has Brian Johnson going #10 to the Marlins

Astros Can Start Prepping For The First Pick

By Jim Callis

CHICAGO—The Astros weren't expected to finish higher than fifth place in the National League Central, but they didn't envision the bottom dropping out quite like this. Houston set a franchise record with its 97th loss—on Sept. 11, with 16 games remaining in the season.

If there's a bright spot, it's that the Astros were so bad that they didn't need to make any pretense of playing for the present. By sending Michael Bourn to the Braves and Hunter Pence to the Phillies at the trade deadline, Houston gave its farm system a much-needed infusion of talent. The return included a first baseman/outfielder who immediately became their best position prospect (Jonathan Singleton) and three arms who rank as their top hopes on the mound (Jarred Cosart, Paul Clemens, Brett Oberholtzer).

Another consolation prize is the first selection in the 2012 draft, which Houston had all but locked up with two weeks to go. Next year's crop doesn't contain a Stephen Strasburg (2009) or Bryce Harper (2010), let alone a half-dozen worthy No. 1 candidates (2011), but it's always nice to have the pick of the litter.

The 2012 draft is still nine months away, but we're already looking ahead. On Page 53, you'll find our first official prospect list for next year's draft. Here you'll find an early look at how the first 10 picks could unfold, based on mid-September standings.

1. Astros: While we rank Stanford righthander Mark Appel as the No. 1 prospect, he hasn't separated himself from the rest of the pack. Astros scouting director Bobby Heck couldn't make his preference for up-the-middle talent any more clearer, as his top picks in four drafts with the club have been a catcher (Jason Castro), a shortstop (Jiovanni Mier), a second baseman (Delino DeShields Jr.) and a center fielder (George Springer).

That could lead Houston to Arizona State's Deven Marrero, who might have been the first shortstop drafted in 2011 had he been eligible as a sophomore. Marrero is a much better bet to produce offensively than Mier or Jonathan Villar (part of last year's Roy Oswalt trade) and is just as good defensively. True all-around shortstops are one of baseball's rarest commodities, especially in the draft.

As for the rest of the top 10 . . .

2. Orioles: For much of the last 25 years, Baltimore's best starting pitcher has been a Stanford product (Jeff Ballard, Mike Mussina, Jeremy Guthrie). That tradition can continue with Appel, who has drawn Justin Verlander comparisions for his overpowering stuff and still-in-progress command. Verlander also was a No. 2 overall pick.

3. Twins: Minnesota hasn't been able to keep Joe Mauer healthy behind the plate, making it impossible to get full value out of his $184 million contract. Florida catcher Mike Zunino would allow Mauer to move to a less taxing position and provide much-needed power to the Twins lineup.

4. Mariners: Seattle desperately needs offense, and Georgia high school outfielder Byron Buxton has the best power/speed combination among the 2012s. Buxton also has a strong arm and would be the Mariners' heir apparent to Ichiro in right field.

5. Royals: Kansas City's priority in the 2011 draft was an advanced pitcher, but none of its top four choices made it to the fifth overall pick. The Royals will have a shot at any college arm besides Appel, and Georgia Southern righthander Chris Beck showed the potential for three plus pitches in the Cape Cod League this summer.

6. Padres: The Jed Hoyer regime has used first-round choices on high-ceiling prep pitchers in its first two drafts (Karsten Whitson, Joe Ross) and can look slightly to the north for a third. Los Angeles area righthander Lucas Giolito has easy mid-90s velocity and a power curve.

7. Cubs: After injuries and ineffectiveness plagued many of its pitchers at the major and minor league levels, Chicago needs help on the mound. Louisiana State righthander Kevin Gausman, a draft-eligible sophomore, can provide that with a lively 92-96 mph fastball and a deceptive changeup.

8. Pirates: Pittsburgh hasn't gotten consistent all-around production from a shortstop since Jay Bell in the 1990s, which makes Louisiana high schooler Gavin Cecchini a good fit. His bat is similar to that of his brother Garin, who signed with the Red Sox for $1.31 million as a 2010 fourth-rounder, and Gavin is more athletic and will be able to remain at short.

9. Athletics: There's a power outage in Oakland, which has had just three 20-homer hitters in the last four seasons. That could lead the A's to Georgia Southern outfielder Victor Roache, who led NCAA Division I with 30 homers in the spring and ranked second in the Cape with six longballs this summer.

10. Marlins: The Marlins system has fallen on hard times, with little in the way of immediate help among hitting or starting pitchers. Florida lefthander Brian Johnson has advanced feel for a solid three-pitch mix, so he could help solve both problems. Interestingly, he may have more upside as a first baseman with well above-average power potential from the left side of the plate

Cocoa Beach's Brian Johnson honored by SEC, Gators back at No. 1

GAINESVILLE - Florida regained the top spot in the USA Today coaches poll in college baseball this week and one of the major reasons for the Gators' winning three of four games last week, Brian Johnson, was honored by the SEC on Monday.

Johnson, a pitcher-designated hitter from Cocoa Beach, hit .471 last week (8 for 17) with seven runs batted in during that stretch. He had a solo homer against Florida State that enabled Florida to finish off a season sweep of the Seminoles.

The junior also had six of UF's 13 RBI in a weekend series at Tennessee, where the Gators (28-8 overall, 9-6 in SEC play) won two games. Highlights included a three run double and six scoreless innings of four-hit pitching in the rubber game of the series.

Johnson (5-1, 3.88 ERA) is hitting .315 for the season with four homers and 23 RBI.

FSU (29-7) is No. 2 this week's poll, falling one spot.

Kentucky (32-5), LSU (30-7) and Texas A&M (28-8) complete the top five in the USA Today selections. Miami (25-11) is 12th and UCF (30-8) sits 14th.
