Dewayne Staats Agrees to Contract Extension

KenDavidoff  Intruding on territory of @sportswatch - Dewayne Staats has signed a contract extension with the #Rays. Will call 5,000th game in '10.

This is great news. Staats began calling games for the Rays when they originally began play. His voice (and hairdo) are trademark with the team. I don't think it's a stretch to call him the Voice of the Rays. More Staats is good Staats, although hopefully he lessens the amount of fly ball outs that receive the home run call treatment.
