Akinori Iwamura felt a lot better after the game after driving in a run with just his second hit of the Spring. However, we wince at the idea that it was a “game-winning” RBI. The Rays won by five and it is just a Spring Training game.
Rumors (unconfirmed) are bouncing around the internets that the Rays will announce their new color schemes before the end of Spring Training.
Here is some timely news from the Rays own website. The team will sport a commemorative patch to mark their tenth season as a franchise. Kinda old news don’t you think? DRaysBay reported this over a month ago. Must have been a slow news day.
The executive director for the players union, Donald Fehr, met with the Rays players yesterday. Afterwards he stated that he believes the Tampa Bay area can be a strong baseball market. He also stated that there are no plans to realign the Rays out of the AL East.
Nobody knows how good Carl Crawford can be. Not even C. C. But we know it sure is going to be fun finding out.
