    Durham 5, Pawtucket 0. It was the Mitch Talbot show in Durham last night. Talbot made his first AAA start and still hasn’t allowed a hit. He worked 6 innings, walked 2 and struck out 4. The PawSox broke up the no-hitter with a 2-out single in the 8th off […]

    Josh Hamilton is not the only former Rays first round pick that is trying to stick with another major league club this spring. One time opening day starter, Dewon Brazelton is in camp with the Kansas City Royals as a non-roster invitee. Don’t the Royals employ scouts? Then again, it […]

    This is why the Rays reporters bug the heck out of us. Here is an article about Elijah Dukes. The article itself is fairly benign. But early in the article Dukes has the following quote… Hopefully when I get that call saying I’m in the league, I’ll probably be about […]
