    THE GOOD: Having a game on national TV, via ESPN…In the 3rd, with Akinori Iwamura on first and the Rays down 2-1, Carl Crawford hit what should have been a ground ball single but CC hustled into a double. The Rays would score 4 runs in that inning before a […]

    Another day, another video…This time we go to the wayback machine for this commercial for the opening of Tropicana Field, or “The Florida Suncoast Dome” as it was known back then.

    THE GOOD: There is a video on YouTube in which Dwayne Staats compares Evan Longoria defensively, to Mike Schmidt, who won 10 gloves. But we wonder if Schmidt ever made a play to win a game the way Dirtbag did last night. Playing deep, with the tying run on third, […]
