This gameday open thread will have two parts and it is all user-generated…

  • Up until first pitch, use the comments section to predict who you think will be the Sunburst Player of the Game. (be sure to use a valid email address while leaving the comment). The commenter that correctly predicts who we will name the Sunburst Player of the Game the most times prior to the all-star game, will win two tickets to a second-half game. Runners-up get their choice of a t-shirt. [Click HERE for rules]
  • Once the game starts, the GBT open thread will be your thoughts during the game of what you think are The Good, The Bad and/or The Telling moments of the game.

    I’m goin’ with the Bossman. I think last night was just a taste

  2. MSfollower says:


  3. Adrian says:

    Garza tosses a gem.

  4. Charles says:

    I’m going with BJ again for SPOTG. He looks like he wants to make up for lost time and catch up with Dirtbag in the MVP race.

  5. Chris says:

    Longoria will be pissed he missed a night in the homerun arena.

  6. Brett says:

    Yet again im going with Longoria

  7. Rumpy says:

    Im going with Crawford tonight.

  8. Joe D. says:

    I’ll go with “The Bat” they say he’s streaky, and he hit one out last night, so maybe that’s him starting to heat up… Feel, The Heat, Rays!

  9. cougar says:

    Last night was an off night for longo (only 1 hit and 2 RBIs) so I gotta go with him

  10. Michael Ramm says:

    B J Upton *clap clap clapclapclap*

    Big Bossman Jr.

    I am going with Matt Garza, hoping he gives the Yankees some high cheese tonight. Go Rays!

  15. CubFanRaysAddict says:


  16. Brixology says:

    I’ll take Bartlett to mix it up. I discovered today that Bartlett is the #1-rated SS in ESPN’s fantasy Player Rater. Crazy. Shame on me for drafting Jimmy Rollins.

  17. Jim says:


  18. Rayhawk says:

    Matt Garza, Studly

  19. WiNKy says:

    Melvin Emmanuel Upton

  20. Jsess says:

    Navi… since no one else has picked him

    I will have to go with Zo-beast.

  22. Martin B says:

    Matty Garza

  23. Charles says:

    Crawford didn’t get the memo about running up the pitch count to get into the depleted bullpen.

  24. Chris says:

    Does Kevin Kennedy ever stop talking?
