  • FanFest will be Feb. 16. has the details. []
  • Marc Topkin says the Rays and Luke Scott “have continued to express mutual interest” in signing a new contract. []
  • Jerry Crasnick of says Kyle Farnsworth is down to two teams, including the Rays. Whenever I hear a player is choosing between Rays and one other team, it sounds suspiciously like the player wants to sign with the Rays but that the other team is offering more money and the player is hoping the Rays will up their offer.

  • Here is how much money the Rays have spent this off-season compared to other teams. This list includes options picked up. So the $25.8 million spent by the Rays is bloated by the James Shields option which is now in Kansas City. [BI Sports]
  • Here’s another top prospects list for the Rays. [BaseballNewsSource]
  • Can’t remember if I posted this already, but here is a look at how the different sports teams define their teams geographically. [BI Sports]
  • A look at how the Manti Te’o story compares to Tebowmania and Linsanity. [BI Sports]
  • Tim Brown is an idiot. [Joe Bucs Fan]
  • To complete that thought, let me add this: 1) Tim Brown and Jerry Rice are the first wide receivers in the history of the NFL that thought their team should run the ball more; 2) What wide receiver on a passing team is told on the eve of THE SUPER BOWL that the coach wants to throw the ball more and then thinks, ‘that sounds like a dumb idea’; 3) Bill Callahan was a coach for 22 years before reaching the Super Bowl. I don’t care if he and Jon Gruden were lovers. No coach passes up an opportunity to win a Super Bowl; 4) And oh yeah, Tim Brown is an idiot and a sore loser.

    I think I'll sue you for impersonating a rays fan and send you to the minor leagues ( drays bay)

  4. J 2.0 says:

    Anyone who follows my posts on here (no one) knows I have been calling for re-signing Luke Scott all off-season. With the condition, obviously, that he is healthy. If he is healthy, signing him for anything below $2 million is a steal, and considering what Delmon Young just got we might get him for less than $1 million. If healthy Scott can go .275 avg 25 hr 80 rbi. I'd take that all day.

    Also, anyone who actually thought the Rays would sign Delmon Young is delusional. He burnt his bridge here in Tampa with the way he acted in 2007. It's tough to get on Joe Maddon's bad side, but I'm pretty sure he did.
