Quick Hits After Tuesday’s Games
I'll have a new mailbag question up tomorrow, but for today I just wanted to post a few quick thoughts on Tuesday's games: * Florida State's offense is legit. The Seminoles pounded Florida 14-6 Tuesday, posting six runs in the first two innings against lefthander Kevin Chapman, one of the better power arms in the freshman class. FSU has now scored in the double digits for eight straight games, and this outburst came on the road against a Florida team that just won a series against Miami. It looks like sophomore Ruairi O'Connor's days as the starting center fielder could be numbered; freshman sensation D'Vontrey Richardson got the start there yesterday and continued to impress, going 3-for-5 with a double and his first career homer. By the way, Florida State coach Mike Martin picked up his 1,445th career win yesterday, moving him into sole possession of fifth place on the all-time list.
