The GBT – The Good, The Bad and The Telling sandwich, where The Bad is nice and lean and the The Telling is ripe.

RAYS 4, Twins 2 (boxscore)

THE GOOD:

THE TELLING: Mikie Mahtook, Enny Romero, and Vince Belnome were the latest cuts by the Rays…Drew Smyly is scheduled to throw off a mound on Saturday…Burch Smith will start today, Jake Odorizzi will get the ball tomorrow, and Everett Teaford will make his first spring start on Sunday.

THE JUNKYARD DOGS WEBTOPIA

  • The Rays have the 3rd-hardest throwing bullpen in baseball, trailing only the Royals and the Yankees. [Fangraphs]
  • Kevin Cash says Enny Romero is going to impact the Rays at “some point this season.” [TampaBay.com]
  • Stuart Sternberg on the Rays’ playoff hopes: “This year I think things have to break really well for us to win 90, but I fully expect us to have that opportunity to be in the hunt come the end of the year.” [TampaBay.com]
  • There’s a rumor that the Phillies would be willing to eat $50 million of the $60 million remaining on Ryan Howard’s contract. Two things: 1) The Rays already have a lefty-swinging DH; 2) at that discount, the Phillies are going to want good prospects in return. The Phillies are not going to give him away for free and still pay the contract.
