  1. Charles says:

    Mr. Zobrist for me today. But let’s not kid ourselves, this game is NOT happening tonight.

  2. Joe D. says:

    I making this pick to prove a point, the reason that the Rays brought in Kapler is because he is supposed to “crush” left handed pitching, if he’s worth his weight in water, this is a game that he must be ‘on’. He’s facing a guy he was teammates with last year– he should know a thing or two about the guy, and he’s a lefty.

    My pick: Kapler, if not then I say we trade him for a really good peanut vendor to work at the Trop…

      you may get them to trade a peanut, but not the vendor.

      • Joe D. says:

        what about the whole bag of peanuts? at least that right? or maybe even one of those cups of Cajun boiled peanuts…

        • Dirtbag Fan says:

          okay- I’ll give you 1 bag of roasted, salted peanuts for Gabe Kapler, but I’m not happy about it- you’re not foolin’ anyone!

          • Joe D. says:

            deal! Now what do you plan on doing with “The Hebrew Hammer”? Sell his rights to a moving company? I’m sure that at 6’2″ 205 and a fitness buff he could move a some furniture…or something…

  3. Sublime says:

    Bossman, one mo ‘gin (Translation…one more time…lol)!

  4. MikeD says:

    rained out, but I woulda picked Joyce again, for what it’s worth

  5. GatorRaysHead says:

    David Price

  6. Jim says:

    Price (if the game happens)

  7. Rytor says:

    The sunburst player of the game is mother nature – we are rained out.

  8. Martin B says:

    This is a tough one, but with CC on the mound for the Yanks, I think Price is the person in the best position to get the SBPOTG

    David Price.

    David Price

  10. smelpy says:

    WHYYYYYY is it rained outttttttttt. i guess i can pass this one in late: longo. it’s postponed so i can.

  11. Justin H says:

    anyone know if we’re gonna be able to watch the game tomorrow?

  12. Amanda says:

    AP has a pretty lengthy story for a rain-delayed game.


    It’s a good read if your sitting around, twiddling your thumbs, wondering what to do with yourself without the Rays to watch.

  13. KillaTapes says:

    I’m assuming this is now for today’s (Sat) game? If Longo’s in the lineup I’m going with him, if he’s not, I’ll go with Price. Does that work?

  14. Michael says:

    David Price
