Rays Links:

- Topkin's Notes: Rays pitchers begin taking BP,  the team's power is starting to show,  and Logan Morrison may be nearing a hot streak

Solondz's post game notes

- Shadow of the Stadium just celebrated its 7th anniversary and marked the occasion by looking back at some memorable post

- Matt Andriese was exceptional yesterday, and may have pitched himself into a roster spot instead of being sent down following his outing

Around the League:

- The 2016 Braves may possibly be the worst baseball team in the modern era and are currently on pace for 134 losses -- 83% of their games

- The Cubs absolutely didn't want any part of Bryce Harper this weekend, and received some words from the Nationals dugout

- It worked though, as the Cubs swept the Nationals with the final game being an extra inning affair, that Javier Baez ended with a walk-off homer. Baez then gave the instrument of destruction -- i.e. his pink Mother's Day bat -- to his mother

- As mentioned above, the Cubs wanted nothing to do with Bryce Harper's bat, and walked him a record six times during the 13 inning game

- Jose Reyes is reportedly going to get at least a 60 day suspension, if not more
