Good morning, Tampa Bay! Hope everyone is safe and well. Here in Land O’ Lakes, the last few Elsa bands are passing through, but it looks like the damage is minimal. Our yard pretty drenched, but there’s no real damage other than some small limbs down. Today’s doubleheader is still on as planned.

In non-storm news, the Rays are calling up top prospect Vidal Bruján to replace the injured Manuel Margot, and Xavier Edwards is going to the Futures Game.

Sam Dykstra on what to expect from Bruján.

Mike Zunino is an all-star.

Brandon Lowe on the worst year of his life.

Tricia Whitaker is missing all the fun.

Mark Feinsand thinks the Rays should add a starting pitcher.

In other Team Tampa Bay news, the Lightning look to bring the Cup back to Tampa tonight.

This is the perfect response to Aroldis Chapman.

Dave Roberts expects Trevor Bauer to be out longer than the initial seven days.

The Angels had an Ohtani pillow giveaway on Monday.

These New Era font caps are really something.

Meg Rowley is concerned.

There’s never a right time to eulogize someone during a broadcast, but during a Nick Castellanos at bat is definitely the wrong time.

Looks like the Jays are headed home to Toronto.

Rowdy Tellez will not be joining them, as he was traded to the Brewers for old friend Trevor Richards. Which means that Rowdy and Vogey are now teammates.

Stay safe. Here’s a water puppy.
