Ken Davidoff of Newsday has a few interesting nuggets on the Rays…
- Johnny Damon is eyeing the Braves, Orioles and Rays, noting that Damon calls Florida home. The Rays do need a DH, and Damon fits the Rays M.O.
- Davidoff says it is unlikely that BJ Upton will be traded, noting that losing both Upton and Carl Crawford would be “quite a blow.”
- Andrew Friedman on rebuilding the bullpen: “Over the last three or four years, we’ve made five really good bullpen moves,” Tampa Bay executive vice president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman said, “but that’s over four years. Basically, we’re trying to replicate that in one offseason. It’s going to be difficult.”
