    Wade Davis Moves To Corner The Squeak Spray Endorsement Market

    Wade Davis has switched from the #58 he wore with the Rays last season to #40 this year. The obvious reason is that Davis must actually like the craptastic nickname “WD-40.” Oh, yay. We don’t care, we’re still calling him “Big Dub.” Unless of course he sucks. Because as they […]

    Joe Maddon spoke about what he expects from BJ Upton… When you’re coming in injured or off of surgery, you have all those questions in the back of your mind. You have to break all those mental adhesions to get yourself going again. It was a tough year for him […]

    Carl Crawford was asked yesterday if he would be willing to give the Rays a home-team discount. His answer was a less-than-emphatic “you never know,” in which he deferred to his agent. Maybe more telling was this quote from the St. Pete Times in which CC was asked about his […]

    Our occasional disappointment in BJ Upton is often misconstrued as a dislike for the player. Nothing could be further from the truth. We are huge Bossman fans. So you can understand our excitement when we read Marc Topkin’s piece on Upton. A few of the bigger points… Upton added 7 […]
