Playing A Little Pepper

We are now four weeks from the trade deadline, if the Rays do add a piece, what need should they attempt to fill?

If Evan Longoria is out until September, as we have feared, the Rays need a right-handed bat to shore up the offense. And the infield defense needs an upgrade and some stability. The Rays could kill both stones with one bird (or something) if they add a right-handed hitting infielder with a strong third base glove. That player could also be added to the DH-mix and create better balance with either Luke Scott or Hideki Matsui if/when Longo returns…RIGHT-HANDED HITTING INFIELDER

Lineup…

  1. Flash Jennings, LF
  2. Carlos Pena, DH
  3. Ben Zobrist, RF
  4. BJ Upton, CF
  5. Luke Scott, 1B
  6. Will Rhymes, 3B
  7. Jose Molina, C
  8. Elliot Johnson, SS
  9. Sean Rodriguez, 2B
  10. Jeremy Hellickson, SP

Song to get you pumped up

This song sums up the love-frustrated relationship many fans have with the Rays.

    I like Scutaro. If we could get colorado to eat the majority of his $6 million contract, I think he would be a good fit at shortstop. Then we can have keppinger or S-Rod play third. Scutaro also provides decent offense with a .285 avg and 24 rbi's.

    It doesn't matter what kind of needs the Rays make, they won't address it until the offseason. So any discussion in reality of the trade line doesn't exist. Unless if you are looking for Gregg Zaun?
