Lots o’ linketty goodness on Babe Ruth’s eleventy-fourth birthday.


  • Brian Shouse had his physical yesterday but still no official announcement from the team, nor do we know how much he will make, whether it is a 2-year or 1-plus-an-option or who will be dropped from the 40-man roster (Juan Salas or Elliot Johnson). [The Heater]
  • Tomorrow will be the David Price Project 14 Benefit, an autograph session and bowling tournament organized by David Price in honor of his late friend Nate Stephens. All proceeds will go to a college endowment set up at Price’s high school in Stephen’s name. [Montgomery Advertiser]
  • Rays of Light will be previewing the Rays position-by-position. Up first is catcher. [Rays of Light]
  • Razzball takes a look at 20 pitchers that are “risky” (in terms of fantasy value) for 2009. Andy Sonnanstine comes in at #6 because he throws 39% breaking balls and he threw over a thousand more pitches in 2008 as compared to 2007. The Duke doesn’t worry us, because he doesn’t throw hard enough to put a lot of stress on his elbow and his pitch total was actually down in 2008 if you include his minor league numbers from 2007. On the other hand, Matt Garza threw 452 more pitches in 2008 and he is #17 on their list. We have already expressed our concern about Garza heading into the ‘09 season. [Razzball]
  • Rays of Light gives us their roster projection. [Rays of Light]
  • A large number of Tampa Bay Rays will participate in the “Welcome to Charlotte County” parade on Feb. 19 at 3pm in Punta Gorda. Of course it might be a bit awkward if the parade introduces the team as the “2008 World Series champions” as the Cape Coral Daily Breeze does in this column. [Cape Coral Daily Breeze]
  • The Bluefield Daily Telegraph spoke with new Princeton Rays manager Jared Sandberg, who still owns three team records in Princeton. [Bluefield Daily Telegraph]
