• The Sporting News has named Andrew Friedman their Executive of the Year for 2008…So let this be a warning to all. If you are about to join a fantasy baseball league and one of the teams is named “World B. Friedmans”, don’t do it. He’ll kick your arse. [MLB]
  • MLB Trade Rumors has their list of the top 50 free agents and where they are projected to land. With the Rays declining Cliff Floyd’s option and lopping $5 million off of the roster, Pat Burrell could fill the need at DH and right-handed power bat. Also, Nick Punto is the kind of player that Joe Maddon covets, a switch-hitter with lots of positional flexibility and excellent baseball skills. Is he a difference maker? No. Can he be a highly effective part-time player? Yes. He could come to the Rays and fill a bench spot and still get 2-3 starts a week. The question is whether another team still sees him as an everyday player. [MLB Trade Rumors]
  • David Price has been selected by ESPN the Magazine as one of their “Next” athletes. [ESPN]
  • This story is a bit stale, but for those of you, like us, that loathe the long pajama pants worn by most players and long for the day of short baggy pants and stirrups, we can *thank* the Rays’ very own George Hendrick. [Sports By Brooks]
  • The Rays have extended their partnership with the Princeton Rays through the 2010 season. [Rays Prospects]
