Playing A Little Pepper

Joe Maddon has a band in the locker room prior to today’s game (see image below).  And a lot of plantains (9 bunches of 3 to be exact)…The Rays are still 4.5 games behind the Yankees. But they have picked up 4.5 games on the Red Sox in just the last 13 days and now trail Boston by just 2.5 games for third place…The Rays’ .279 avg and .351 OBP are the best in the majors since April 27th…Evan Longoria was named the AL Player of the Week for the 6th time in his career. He is currently tied for 5th in the AL in both hitting (.333) and home runs (9).
