Any word on saturdays starters?

Not that I've seen other than Burrell will be playing ...


and Juan Salas has been dealt to the Indians for minor leaguer ...

Salas dealt to Indians

PORT CHARLOTTE—The Rays found a way to get something back for RHP Juan Salas, who was designated for assignment last week, by trading him to Cleveland today.

The Rays receive 2B Isaias Velasquez from the Indians. The 20-year-old from Panama was named to the New York-Penn League All-Star Team at Mahoning Valley, where he batted .281 in 64 games.

Salas probably would have been claimed off waivers if it got to that point, so I’m sure the Rays are pleased to at least get something in return.

I guess Wood and Prior blowing their arms out didn't change Dusty's philosophies too much....

I'm not sure how sending the best SP prospect in MLB, who was dominate when he came up to the big league club last season, down to AAA so two lesser pitchers can battle it out for the 5th spot in the rotation is in the best interest of the team.

I'd also reserve my opinion that the bullpen has been "upgraded" seeing as though the only real weak spot (if you will) was the closer and we addressed that by signing a 36 year old RP that is coming off a majorly disappointing, injury riddled year and with the return of a RP that faded in the second half due to injuries and is coming off back surgery.
And that is the worst portion of any Rays view - if several players fail they will have bullpen issues.  It could be worse ;)

Ok, walk works...now Aki in scoring position for CC. 

Hopefully he can not only get a hit, but run the bases well at the same time....

Of course, a HR would work then no worries....

This sounds familiar.

"Gabe Gross made their first error, misplaying a sinking liner by Edwin Encarnacion."


Rays lose 7-0.  Choate and Talbot give up bombs.  Not much hitting.  Sounds like traffic was a disaster for opening day

I'm watching the Red Sox/Twins game on MLB Network, and the Red Sux COO is offering special deals to Yankees and Rays games in Fenway.

I just love being thrown into the same group as the might Yankees in the Red Sux organization's mind.
