Joe MaddonAnniversary

This little website was born on this date eight years ago. April 3, 2006 was also Joe Maddon’s first game as a manager of the Rays. The photo at right (via the Tampa Bay Rays) is from that game.

Playing A Little Pepper

After Sunday’s game, the Rays will play their next 3 series on the road as well as 19 of their next 26 games on the road (because, you know, they should play as few games in a dome in April as possible since the weather up north is so beautiful). On the brightside, only three of the first 27 games are against teams that made the playoffs last year.

    Myers was scratched from the lineup tonight due to flu-like symptoms.
