Four "Young Guns" http://www.hardballtimes.com/main/article/young-guns/ Whenever I see an article from a worthwhile source that includes commentary on Rays, I figure people would like to look at it. This is from THT today. Kalk seems more optimistic about Hammel's chances to be a pretty decent major leaguer than many of us here do. And he also is not in favor of Niemann in the bullpen.
The Rays "episode" will air on 03/04.
Guilt by Association? Well you know Ortiz did come out of nowhere...
Base running: http://tampabay.rays.mlb.com/news/article.jsp?ymd=20090222&content_id=3865868&vkey=news_tb&fext=.jsp&c_id=tb I don't usually find Chastain's articles particularly interesting, but I think this one is, perhaps because I think the Rays have made too many outs on the base paths the last few years. Aggressive is one thing, but reckless is quite another. Glad he is keeping records and trying to instill the fundamentals.
