The GBT – The Good, The Bad and The Telling sandwich, where The Bad is nice and lean and the The Telling is ripe.
THE GOOD: Not In Contention. Why is that good? Have you seen the ACL lineup this year? We’re going to be busy this weekend…Oriole Killer. Ben Zobrist hit his 27th home run last night. It was his 7th against the Orioles.
THE BAD: Oh Crap. We have been unable to confirm, but we are being told that Jeremy Hellickson is a Scott Boras client. Does anybody know if this is true? If so, and Hellboy turns out to be the real deal, it will be 6 and out…Dioner Navarro. A bad season just keeps getting worse. 0-2 last night and now 6 for his last 42 (.143).
THE TELLING: Carl Crawford was given a night off to rest for the upcoming off-season (he did pinch hit in the 8th)…The Rays have now scored 783 runs, a franchise record…
