The Rays Tank: Big Game James was Big Game James

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Eh, when James Shields is back on the mound at the Trop I don't feel bad about the Royals winning. Sorry.

Wade Davis did his part too, along with Scott Downs, in shutting out the Rays 6-0. Hopefully some of those runs from the weekend are still hiding somewhere and show up today to support Jeremy Hellickson in his first game back.

And even if the Rays don't win, there's now a self-serve beer station at Target Field, so...road trip?

With this kind of free-for-all you can make delightful concoctions like a Joe Mauercide, and lucky for all of us, the drink connoseuirs at SB Nation have provided instructions for consumption:

Layer each beer in cup in order listed above. Ignore screaming people waiting behind you. Remove each layer of foam with grease from your cheek or forehead. Garnish with a corn dog wedge.

Bon appetit, folks.


A dude fell asleep at a Yankees game, was shown on TV and is now seeking $10 million dollars  from ESPN (TEN MILLION DOLLARS) in damages for "defamation and intentional infliction of emotional distress." We all like naps buddy. Chill out.

- Hardball Times looked at the transition for players from the minors to the majors, and the adjustments that occur in that move.

- Interesting piece from Gabe Kapler on cryotherapy (aka players wrapping themselves in large quantities of ice postgame) and the zero benefits it provides.

- There were insane summer skies over Great American Ballpark and Coors Field last night, and it's a slow day news-wise, so here's some pictures:

Seriously though, crazy lightning in Denver. Giving FL storms some competition.
