It would really set the tone for the year and get the fan base juiced to attend games. I'd like to see the Rays push 25,000 to 30,000 per game this year. They just can't go into an early slump, gotta get hot early.
I'd like to see that too... Not a chance it happens.

This team could lead the majors from day 1 and they won't pull those numbers at the trop. Just way more playing a role than just the team.

What a performance from Helli.  He and Moore are going to be a helluva 1-2 punch in a couple years.

Price needs one more pitch. Fastball hitting teams give him a lot of trouble. he needs a better curve

Our 1-5 is FILTHY. I'd take our 1-3 SP when their at their best over any 1-3 in baseball.

Hellickson was masterful. Moore as a #4, are you kidding? He is a #1 or #2 on most teams.

We are definitely lucky to be watching a plethora of young studs.

The Pena and Scott moves are looking great right now.  Not impressed by the O's by any means. They swept a Twins team who won't finish no better than 3rd in that division. The Royals and White Sox are going to make things harder for them.

It's a helluva of a punch now.  I suspect the Yankees are glad it was a 3 game series.  Imagine hanging out one more day to get to face Moore.  damn....

Which MLB teams are not fastball hitting teams?

It would really set the tone for the year and get the fan base juiced to attend games. I'd like to see the Rays push 25,000 to 30,000 per game this year. They just can't go into an early slump, gotta get hot early.
I'd like to see that too... Not a chance it happens.

This team could lead the majors from day 1 and they won't pull those numbers at the trop. Just way more playing a role than just the team.

25,000 is possible.  They averaged around 23,000/game from 2008 -2010.

I was reading more on the 30,000 side.

I still don't think we end up with 25. 23 again would be a solid start.

Chris Archer AAA: 6 IP, 2 hits, 1 ER, 3 walks, and 8 K's

Will be ready by the All-Star weekend for a call up. Personally though, I wouldn't mind shipping him and Brignac or Upton. We could land a good bat with a package of Upton+Archer come trade deadline.

Moore has to work on his control but his potential is through the roof.
