    Playing A Little Pepper… Programming update. My oldest is turning four this weekend and we are taking a little vacation until Monday evening. So updates until then will be limited. Hard to believe it has been four years. It seems like just yesterday that I posted THIS PICTURE. Anyway, the […]

    Playing A Little Pepper… Prior to tonight’s game, Jake Odorizzi was optioned to double-A. He will be replaced by Brandon Gomes. As Marc Topkin notes, moving Odorizzi to double-A means the Rays can recall him in less than the standard 10 days since the Biscuits season will end sooner than […]

  • Tailgating Game 126: Will Luke Scott Have A Job When He Returns?

    Playing A Little Pepper… Look for David DeJesus to play most days against righties, mostly in left field. That means Matt Joyce will probably see a lot of time at DH down the stretch. Adding DeJesus also makes me wonder how serious Luke Scott’s injury really is. If he does come back, he might […]
