Playing A Little Pepper

The Rays have three players that could return from the DL in the next, including Desmond Jennings, Brandon Allen, and Jose Lobaton. Which players will be shipped out to make room.

When Lobaton returns, Chris Gimenez will be out, unless of course the Rays decide to put Jose Molina on the DL to give him some rest. As for the other two, the obvious answer might be Drew Sutton, whom the Rays just added this week to fill in for Jeff Keppinger. But why give up some cash and a minor league pitcher (John Gaub was placed on waivers to make room for Sutton) if you are just going to put Sutton on waivers a week later? That just doesn’t make sense. Rather, we see Sutton hanging around until at least Keppinger returns. In the meantime, look for Stephen Vogt and Rich Thompson to end up back in triple-A…GIMENEZ, VOGT, THOMPSON

Song to get you pumped up

The Rays’ newest addition to their post-game concert series. And I am not afraid to admit that I was actually at this show. In my defense, I used to live three blocks from MSG and there wasn’t much I wouldn’t go see…

    i prefer this left/right alternating through the top of the lineup.

    Better he broke up the Pena-Scott-Joyce that wasnt producing much and was susceptable to late inning lefty relief

    Molina to the DL makes alot of sense. He could use the rest then a few games in the minors to work as a DH and get what little stroke he has left tunned for the summer.
