AROUND THE LEAGUE

- The Boston Red Sox retired Wade Boggs' jersey before their game yesterday, realizing how embarrassing it was that the Rays had already done that almost two decades prior. Boggs stuck to his former team though as he wore his World Series championship ring to the ceremony...that he won with the Yankees.

- Hector Olivera has been suspended 82 games for violating the Joint Domestic Violence Policy.

TRIVIA FRIDAYS

I'm deciding to bring trivia back once a week, might even make a ranking board to make those who answer correctly feel more special about their massive knowledge of the Rays vastly storied history.

So, Logan Morrison currently has a .478 on-base percentage for the month of May, which actually places him at the top of the list for OBP in the month of May for a Rays player in a single-season who recorded at least 50 plate appearances.

Which player now ranks second on that list with an OBP of .476?

Answer will be revealed around noon eastern
