Stuart Sternberg is a Godsend

Topkin/The Times:

The one area where Sternberg might get an argument is the back end of the bullpen, but he said flatly, "If we spend more money, it's not going to be on a closer."

Adding a closer is about the 34th thing this team needs. Sternberg also states there isn't a glaring hole, and it's more about performance to date. Which is exactly right. I would argue catcher as well, but Navarro really shouldn't be this bad moving forward. Of course, that's a backhanded compliment at this point.

Also, we have an owner that understands how baseball works. This team is quite lucky.

Other notes:

Rays Prospects has the latest minor league moves.

Former Ray Josh Wilson has yet another new home.

Dave Allen with some fantastic, fantastic HitFx analysis.
