Red Sox 5, Devil Rays 4.
Was anybody surprised that Big Papi hit that home run?
Just the links today as we are on our way to Austin City Limits.
DEVIL RAYS WEBTOPIA…
- With BJ Upton’s shift to center field, the Rays may now be sporting both the strongest right field arm and the strongest arm in center field. [Devil Rays]
Maddon can rest easy knowing that his center fielder owns only one of a pair of outfield cannons. Right fielder Delmon Young entered Wednesday’s action ranked third in the Majors with 16 outfield assists behind Atlanta’s Jeff Francoeur and Minnesota’s Michael Cuddyer. Upton, who has found new life after an uncomfortable tour through three infield positions, can stay right where he is.
- Carter Gaddis calls this stretch of games “The most challenging road trip of the season”. He apparently has already forgotten the trip in which the Rays played a make-up game in Chicago on a Monday and were forced to play three games in three different cities in three days. [TBO]
