Rays come to town
Quickly now, I'm going to go try and sneak in a few holes at the local pitch n' putt. Ricky tonight. And Tampa isn't very good against lefties! And Ricky crushed the Rays last year! That means they win tonight. And yes, I'm aware of what the Baltimore Orioles did last year, but that didn't count, so fuck you.
Anyway, that stuff about Ricky Romero and last year, and I'm plagiarizing this from the Yahoo! preview of the game... Romero went 3-0 against the Rays in 6 starts last season with a 2.02 ERA, holding Rodriguez, Zobrist, Longoria, Jennings and Joyce to a .088 average. Carlos Pena and Luke Scott are 2 for 22 career against Romero as well.
Jeff Niemann, on the other hand, sucks. Adam Lind is like 12-for-22 or something like that vs. Niemann over his career.
Day off for former Jay Jose Molina.
Stuff (AKA things I read at work today)
Notgraphs strikes again. Are you a Jays' fan? Of course you are. Unless you're reading this as a personal favor to me. Which you shouldn't.
MLB Daily Dish talks about how it's time to either play Travis Snider or to trade him. No kidding. He's only 24 though.
Dave at fangraphs knows why I hate watching Red Sox games.
Not that anyone cares, but an update for my fantasy teams. I'm leading 1, 2nd in 3, 3rd in 1, and dead last in 1. That last one has Tim Lincecum. Ugh.
