Playing A Little Pepper

Jerry Remy will once again not be in the NESN booth for this series. What is scary is that there hasn’t been much explanation for his absence and Remy has suffered from cancer in the past… Today’s double-header is the 21st in Rays’ history. Alfredo Aceves will start the first game for the Red Sox and Felix Doubront will start the second…If you missed it last week, below you can see a GIF of Andrew Bailey mocking Fernando Rodney’s shoot-the-moon celebration and then “breaking” the bow…Rays starting pitchers have allowed 38 earned runs in the last 8 games, the most for an 8-game stretch since 2005. The Rays are 2-6 in that stretch…Wil Myers will make his debut today and is 2 days older than Evan Longoria was on the date of his big league debut…Evan Longoria will play third base in the first game of the double-header, but is expected to DH in the second.

    Whoa, never saw that GIF of Bailey(?) breaking the bow and arrow. Have to admit that's pretty funny.
