The Rays beat the Red Sox in overtime yesterday (not on TV), and I just can't get enough of these Sports Talk Florida Jams.
That's Mookie Betts homering off Matt Moore to start the game, the Rays mounting a two-run rally in the fourth inning. Shown are:
- Kevin Kiermaier pulling his hands in to pull an inside pitch to the wall.
- Panda doing panda things.
- Kevin Kiermaier's grounder finding a hole up the middle.
- Later on in the game there's a nice defensive play by Taylor Motter in left field.
There's more good video editing by Steve Kinsella and the Sports Talk Florida folks. They've started combining interviews with related highlight footage, so click on over:
- The most interesting tidbit from Topkin's notes: Jonny Venters (recovering from Tommy John) will throw his first bullpen today.
- The Orioles have signed Pedro Alvarez. Baltimore is going to hit a lot of home runs. Hopefully that's about all they'll do.
- John Choiniere looks at the possible effects of a change in the strikezone.
