    Want a one-foot by one-foot piece of the Rays old FieldTurf? It will cost you $25 at next weekend’s FanFest, and all proceeds go to charity.

    THE GOOD: Matt Garza. Nothing we can write will give justice to just how dominating Garza was yesterday. 108 pitches, 76 for strikes. 1 hit, 1 walk. Faced only 1 over the minimum. 7 1-2-3 innings. Garza was strike-one to 19 of 28 batters (68%). On his bad days, that […]
