  1. Dave L says:

    I didnt know Rob worked with the Tampa CC?

    I really hope Guyer contributes tonite.

    • Rob says:

      Touche', but studies do show there is wisdom in crowds. I don't recall from previous Tampa CC lineups - does Maddon give them the players? Was this a planned day off for Jennings?

      • Dave L says:

        Resting Jennings kind of makes sense.

        Just finished 9 games against division opponents which sort of count like 1.5 games then facing a Cleveland at home on the turf Jennings doesn't love.. I'm sure that was the Rays call. They just influenced the order supposedly.

        Starts out 3 lefties but with Zobrist all the lefties would be broken up against a LH relief pitcher so its a lineup that Maddon may choose one day this year concievably.
