hangoverHere is the Rays new road Spring Training/Batting Practice cap. You can see the new home ST/BP cap here.

We’re not allowed to talk about it yet, but let’s just say, we hope you like the color.


  • The deadline for the Rays to avoid arbitration is noon today. At that point, the two sides will submit their arbitration figures and the Rays will no longer negotiate, although they could still explore long-term deals before the arbitration hearing. Mark Topkin reports that the Rays did not appear close to any deals as of yesterday. [St. Pete Times]
  • Carlos Pena says his fingers have healed and he is pain-freee and already in the batting cage. [The Heater]
  • Fanfest is scheduled for February 20th at The Trop. The Rays will donate at least $50K and Carlos Pena will donate $15K to Haitian relief funds. [via Press Release]
  • Another day, another top prospects list. [Fangraphs]

    That road hat is hideous. Who decides on the rays colors? A three year old? The home one is fine but if we have ST jerseys that are that baby blue I'll puke.

    • Beth says:

      Alex, I am with you 100%. That's the sort of color you'd find painted on the cinder block walls of a very distressed urban school cafeteria -- where you assume they used it because they got a very good deal on the paint.

    • From what I am hearing, the Spring Training jerseys are NOT changing this year.

  2. Matt says:

    The home is fine but this one doesn't even look professional. It's more like a fashion-hat then on the field!

    call me crazy, but I like it. I think it complements the dark blue jerseys nicely.
