  • Although he has yet to receive official word, Evan Longoria is proceeding with the assumption that he will not be included on the final 24-man roster for the US in the World Baseball Classic.

  • Troy Percival had his home in California broken into with the thieves taking some TVs and his ‘55 Ford Truck that he had restored…And Carl Crawford found his $10K diamond earrings several hours after shoving them in his back pocket and subsequently dropping them in the batting cage. [St. Pete Times]
  • Evan Longoria says he has modeled his workouts after former Ray Eric Hinske. [St. Pete Times]
  • Joe Nelson has overcome many obstacles and is about to make his first opening day roster in 14 years as a pro. [St. Pete Times]
  • The Rays Party takes a look at the moves the Red Sox made this off-season. [The Rays Party]
