"These notes are too positive -- not at all the impression I wanted to give -- so here's one more. It's 1:25, I'm still awake (and if you're reading this tonight so are you) and the Rays suck." - One Exhausted Editor's Recap

- A bright spot in this dismal little stretch? Alex Cobb will begin a minor-league rehab assignment this Saturday, as he tossed four shutout innings and struckout eight in a simulated game yesterday, hitting 90-91 miles per hour on his fastball. His rehab start is expected to be at high Single-A or Triple-A. Bring on the good news!

- Oh wait, bad news for all baseball fans: Jose Fernandez may need season-ending surgery on his right elbow. Ugh.
