Today we bring you video footage of Yakult Swallows fans paying tribute to the newest D-Ray, Akinori Iwamura, or as we prefer to refer to him…Muu-Rah! (Think Marines).
- Ozzie Guillen may hate the Gays, but he sure does love idiot catchers with big mouths. After Toby Hall’s recent remarks regarding the Rays organization, he signed a 2-year deal with the White Sox to backup the most hated player (outside of Barry Bonds) in major league baseball, A. J. Pierzynski. This has reality show written all over it…Newlyweds Two.
- The latest team that may be trying to put a package together for Rocco Baldelli is the Colorado Rockies. Apparently the Rays are interested in shortstop Clint Barmes and one of the Rockies pitchers. However, the Rockies have been told that a second major league power pitcher would have to be included. The Rockies, who recently acquired outfielder Willie Tavares from the Astros, may try to move Tavares to a third team in exchange for a pitcher that could be included in a deal with the Rays.
