Tropicana FieldPlaying A Little Pepper

As part of a promotion called “Rays Fans For Life,” 12 babies born at Bayfront Baby Place will each receive 4 tickets to all future Rays home openers…If you want to propose to somebody at Tropicana Field, it will cost you $500, one of the most expensive in baseball…The Rays are now projected to win 90 games by PECOTA, tops in the AL. When we first looked at the PECOTA projections a couple of weeks ago, the Rays were tied with the Red Sox with 89 wins. The Sox are now at 88 wins.

    This will be a nice chance to take a look at the team's new additions.

    I would LOVE to see Joyce grab ahold of every chance he gets and force JoMa's hand into playing him whenever possible. I'm a DeJesus fan, but I'd rather see SweetSwingin20 live up to his potential than to see him officially relegated to a "next man up" role.

      I didn't express my point very effectively, I like a world wherein Joyce and DeJesus coexist within the lineup as often as possible- given that Joyce controls his strike zone.
