    Tampa Bay Rays (8 days until pitchers and catchers report) Happy Birthday Babe Ruth! He would be 113 today if only he had not taken so many performance enhancing beers, hot dogs and whores…Which gets us to thinking. If The Bambino were playing today and had just completed his 6th […]

    Seriously…We can’t make this shit up. Baseball Musings has still been referring to the Tampa Bay Rays as the “Tampa Bay Devil Rays”. Well, after receiving a letter from Matt Silverman, president of the Devil Rays, they can no longer use the excuse that they “didn’t get the memo”. Baseball […]
