any word on any relief help? i havent heard anything yet.
any idea?


Nothing yet, looks like we are going with the same guys and some of the younger guys.

Raiders-- have you heard anything?




Nah it is looking like we will be going with some of the guys from last year and hopefully a few of the younguns will step up as well. If we can get league average in the bullpen, you are legitimately talking another 4 or 5 wins easily.

As far as Dukes, he is on the trade block like some of the other young Devil Ray players, but it is not a must to trade him so the price will be some pitching.

The Rays are reportedly close to signing Carlos Pena to a minor league deal.

It's a shame that Pena hasn't been able to do any better. He'd become the Rays' best option to start at first base against right-handers, but they'll probably go with Ty Wigginton as a full-time player there. A bench spot seems unlikely, as the team will already be using carrying Greg Norton. Pena may be stashed away at Triple-A again, this time on a last-place team.

I like this for the Rays. Pena has potential just needs to figure out how not to strike out so much. Could be a help for us.


all we can really do is hope.
he could end up worthy of a call up and start knocking the ball around. with some power off the bench and the occasional platoon start.

i like the fact he killed an osprey with a baseball.
but i hope maddon doesnt try to get him to pan out...
if he doesnt work out at SP then pull him before it gets too bad and put him in the pen.
but another righty...
we need a lefty.

I don't like his walk rate, and his K rate is not great either. I don't know very much about him but maybe he has 2 pretty good pitches and could be a decent live arm in the bullpen.
