The Press vs. Fernando Rodney

According to a piece by the Detroit News' Tom Gage, MLB's vice president for On-Field Operations, Tom Watson, may have been swayed to suspend the Detroit reliever because of a letter sent in by the St. Petersburg Times' Marc Topkin, a beat writer who also happens to be the chairman of the Tampa Bay chapter of the Baseball Writers Association.

Moment of Levity: The Big Picture

On Monday, the day portion of a day-night doubleheader between the Pirates and Reds drew barely 2,000 fans. A day matchup between those two teams drew more fans on Wednesday ... barely. If you ever wondered what a near 50,000-person stadium would look like with 2,000 people in it, that section in the background behind Pirates starter Zach Duke is a pretty good indication. Three-six people per section, throughought the park. Yikes.

Orioles Review and Preview: Rays, White Sox

The good news is that the Orioles have only been swept once in their last eight series. The bad news is they haven't won any of those series either. Baltimore will look to get its first series win since the all-star break on the road against the White Sox -- one of four American League teams the Orioles don't have a losing record against.

Moment of Levity: The Big Picture

When I was in middle school, one of my best friends put together a science project where he postulated that the reason Johnny Cash always wore black was because it kept bugs away (true story). Something tells us that isn't the motivation behind Joe Maddon's new hair style, but Johnny Cash may be himself: Every road trip the Rays have a different theme, and this one is "Cash". Guess Joe went with the musical interpretation of cash, huh? All things considered, I think he might be even funnier with green hair though, don't you?
