Playing A Little Pepper

Wil Myers met with the media before today’s game, his first at The Trop. I guess we could call this the Bay Area version of a “media circus”Alex Cobb was back at The Trop for the first time since being struck in the head with a linedrive. Joe Maddon said Cobb is feeling better, but that there is still no timetable for his return…The Rays will play 16 of their next 20 games at home…The Blue Jays have won 11 in a row…Tomorrow’s first pitch will be thrown out by NASCAR driver Aric Almirola. And afterwards, he will apparently swap jerseys with Matt Joyce. I’m not sure why this feels weird but it does. The idea of a jersey swap is kinda cool. But less so when it is scripted well in advance by people wearing suits. And is the driver going to give Joye a fire suit?
