    Extremely haha. This is the most excited I've been for a baseball season since Farmer was here. I just hope that the guys can deliver on my expectations.

    Another bucket are those who go from one extreme to another.

    Currently witness our poor basketball fan brethren. That's what I'll try to stay away from this year.

    LOL...that basketball team will send you bouncing around like a yo-yo. Here's hoping the baseball team is more consistent...in a good way.

    According to these facts in this publication....starters will look like this.
    OF: Murray, N.Wilhite, Co.Hall
    1B: English
    2B: Waddell
    3B: Serratos
    SS: A.Wilhite
    C: McCann
    DH: TBD
    Fri: Curry
    Sat: Thomas
    Sun: TBD
    Midweek: TBD
    Closer: English/Hughes

    I'd assume DH is Radcliffe.
    I'd assume Sun goes to Hurter

    No freshman breaking into lineup to start season, I guess.

    Curry Friday night, Thomas Sunday night then straight from the mouth of Coach Hall :

    "Sunday and midweek will be determined, but there are plenty of quality arms lined up to audition.

    “We’ve got options,” said Hall. “Tristin English could be a Sunday guy. He’s our best hitter so he’s got to hit every day. So we’ll have to balance how we use him throwing-wise with what’s going on with him as a hitter. (Sophomore righty) Brant Hurter threw a lot last year midweek. (Transfer junior righty) Amos Willingham, who we recruited in, he has a chance to be in there on a Sunday, (rookie lefty) Luke Bartnicki, one of our freshmen, and (rookie righty) Cort Roedig, another freshman. So I think if we looked at those five, six guys, we’ll figure out who the three- and four-starters are going to be.”

    “Our freshman class has brought in a lot of good pitchers,” said McCann. “We’re looking for them to come up and fill some shoes and just go out and compete.”

    The bullpen also looks strong, even with the loss of dependable Jared Datoc. Hall points to redshirt junior righty Jonathan Hughes as the front-runner to close (English also could get a look), while senior righty Keyton Gibson also has thrown well this offseason."

    They'll basically be the replacements for Thomas and Curry after this year. Those kids are going to be elite.

    Love this lineup. I could see us putting Miller/Guldberg/Radcliffe at DH. I think Guldberg should be in Center unless N. Wilhite has really shown something with the bat in the offseason.

    Love seeing these studs return to the Flats.
    I have questions about this... it was posted on twitter today, but
    1) When was this footage taken? Today as well?
    2) Is he in Ga Tech uniform/gear?
