Playing A Little Pepper

Wil Myers is back in the lineup. Luke Scott is still in the 2-hole. Kelly Johnson is in the lineup because he matches up better than Matt Joyce with tonight’s pitcher. Joyce will be back in the lineup tomorrow…Tomorrow is the 8th annual Rays on the Runway fashion show. For tickets or more information, go to childrensdreamfund.org…When the Rays’ current 6-game winning streak started, they were 3 games behind the Orioles. Now the Rays are 2 games in front of the O’s…In 26 innings, Alex Torres has struck out 33 batters and allowed 6 hits. That’s nuts.

    Corriea has been pretty hot of late. In his ast 5 starts he has gone no less than 7 innings and given up a total of less than 2 earned runs per start. With The Twins bullpen overmatched by ours that could keep them in a dogfight tonite.

    Hoepfully new new improved Helli will keep us in this one. I wouldn’t expect a high scoring affair.

    Seems like whatever lineup the Rays trot out lately they make Maddon look like a genuis. Lets hope the hot bats continue to keep the heat on.

    These are the time when its fun to be a Rays fan and gametime cant come soon enough though I’m like Mr. Smith I start watching late and use the clicker to turn a 3 hour game into a 2:20 minute one. The Rays broadcast makes it easy 3 clicks of the FF button in between innings and I don’t miss a play.

    Does anyone else think Torres resembles Mose Schrute?
