Will Rhymes has been recalled by the Rays and will be in uniform tonight. Earlier this week, Brooks Conrad was optioned to Durham when the Rays needed an extra reliever. He must stay in triple-A for at least ten days before he can be recalled (unless a player was injured). This opened the door for Rhymes to return to the Rays.

    If that guy who is supposed to be our franchise player can stay away from getting sore again, Will is only back for 3 days. I actually like Rhymes approach at the plate and his swing, hated when he went down instead of Conrad because Conrad is a “switch hitter” well he can switch all he wants, he didn’t hit from either side.

    I find it insane that we didn’t even put in a claim on Torrealba or Kurt Suzuki. Literally ANY ML catcher will be better than the guys we have put out there so far this season. It really defies logic.

      Had similar thoughts when I heard Geovany Soto was moved by the Cubbies. Don’t know how he’s doing this year, but can’t imagine he’s any worse than our crew. And, he’s rather young w/what was once perceived as a bright future. I suspect many of us have scratch-induced bald spots on our heads following the teams’ maneuvers this year. smh
