Funny exchange between Kevin Goldstein and a chatter yesterday:
Jules (TheStatPack): So what's with you skipping out on the Ballpark Feeds at the Trop this year? First it was just Carroll, then Sheehan AND Carroll. Where's our dose of the KG?
Kevin Goldstein: They keep me in a cage here with a laptop and a cell phone. Every once in a while they open the door, ask me about some Double-A pitcher, gimme a cookie and lock me back in. Sad, really.
As you all know we as a whole like Goldstein, but even more interesting is the chatter's blog The Stat Pack covers the Rays amongst other Tampa sports. Oh and The Rays have pissed the Church of Satan off, yay!
Yesterday's victor was the long awaited righty Wade Davis, here's a summary of a scouting report from the 2006 Baseball America Prospect Handbook:
