Into the Sun

So here I am in St. Petersburg and eventually we are going to get to see a Rays game, but before that we were off to Lakeland to see the Tigers play the Mets. My hope was that I'd be able to identify potential Mud Hens or Bisons, but there simply wasn't enough information available to make a guess. 

Instead I got to watch Justin Verlander, Prince Fielder and company get destroyed by the Mets 11-0. Verlander was really off. He gave up a couple of home runs, balked in a run, hit a couple of guys. I think he let in something like 5 runs before he left.

It was fun to at least see Fielder on the field. I remain amazed that someone who looks so unlike a baseball player does so well at the game. Well, not sure he was taking today seriously. He was walked in his first AB then and then was caught stealing. That's right, caught stealing!

Rays v. Yankees on Tuesday. Hope the rain keeps away.
  • An important bit of information buried in the Phillies-Rays box score of a couple of days ago, Craig Albernaz got into the game.
  • A bunch of players have been sent down to minor league camp. Will have to take a closer look later.
