This Date in Team History!

In 2008, the Rays signed Carlos Pena to a three year deal worth $24 million following his unbelievable 2007 season where he shattered team records. The deal worked out fantastically for the Rays as Pena averaged 2.5 WAR a year over the deal as well as about 33 home runs a season. He also brought tremendous value to the team as a clubhouse leader.

The answer to yesterday's question was Jae Weong Seo, answered correctly by turntwo21

Today's prospect:

[Prospect] has the organization’s best lefthanded power potential. The ball explodes off his bat when he is zoned in at the plate. [Prospect] has plenty of athleticism and range to become an above-average defensive first baseman.

Hint: A 1995 first round pick and three-time top-ten prospect for his organization, joined Tampa Bay sometime between 2000 and 2004.


There are 76 days until Opening Day!

That's the same number of home runs hit by Matt Joyce during his career.

- Joe Maddon's protest about the Cubs constantly changing start times paid off as they will be more consistent in 2016.

- It's inevitable that the DH will eventually be full-time in the NL, and now it's closer than ever.

- A column at the Tampa Tribune suggest MLB should help the Rays finance a new stadium.

- Rebuilding is a situation almost every team goes through every so often, so Grant Brisbee suggest it's a time for excitement.

- Rays Colored Glasses ranked 2010 first round pick, Justin O'Conner, 17th in their rundown of Rays prospects.
