Playing A Little Pepper

Sam Fuld, Stephern Vogt, and John Jaso are all in the lineup for the A’s tonight. Overall, the A’s roster has 6 former Rays, including Scott Kazmir, Jason Hammel, and Jonny Gomes. Also, Jesse Chavez was briefly in the Rays organization but never on the big league roster…No local TV tonight for the Rays.

    Per Topkin:

    There are more '08 Rays playing for Oakland tonight (Gomes, Kaz, Hammel, Jaso) than for the Rays (Longo, Zobrist, Balfour)...

    Maddon has taken to calling them the Oakland R-A's

    Balfour. Unbelievable.

  3. Monte says:

    Balfour? I've was impressed with Grant Balfour and hated to see him leave the Rays. Unfortunately, it looks like he's either washed up or is pressing too hard. Either way, he's really hurt the Rays this year. Without him, we might would be over 500.
