    Its kind of funny to think, well the top 7 of the Rays order looks pretty formidable tonite.....well except for that 3 hole guy,,,,,

    Lets hope that changes!

    Beat Rogers with the long ball at the Trop recently. Lets hope the second half or should we say fourth/ fifth of the season starts off well.
