Interesting. I wonder what happened.

Problems at Durham continue to pile up. Shortstop B.J. Upton was arrested for drunken driving Friday. Outfielder Delmon Young returns from a 50-game suspension Monday for throwing a bat at an umpire. And Manager John Tamargo was suspended 10 games earlier this season for bumping an umpire.


This, Devil Ray fans, is why you don't count your chickens before they hatch.

I don't think any of us have really been counting our chickens, mainly just waiting for 2007 and beyond. The worse thing though is that this years mess with 3 of our top prospects could definitely push our dream year of 2007 onto 08 or even 09. And even then I don't think we will be World Series Champions, but I do think we could have a say in what happens in the AL East. But all of this matters on BJ, Delmon, and Dukes behaving and the pitching to continue to improve in the lower minors. Tamargo seems like a nice guy the few times I have talked to him, but I am beginning to wonder if he needs to strengthen the clubhouse rules :-? .

so much for Tampa's vaunted "future", I certainly wouldn't want to count on these three to help turn my franchise around.
