- Bossman Junior hit his first HR of the season. A three run job to center field
- Longoria had what appears to be a pretty good game. He went 2-5 with a rbi and run scored. He even stole a base. Wonder why Joe played him the full nine yesterday?
- Reyes, Miller, Balfour, McGee and Davis all pitched one inning. The only one to give up a run was Balfour.
- Hammell and Houser both got hit pretty hard. Hammel gave up nine ( yes nine!) earned runs in just over three innings of work. This does not bode too well for him making the 25 man.
- It was a loss. This is the first two game losing streak of the spring for the Rays.
I am not quite sure what to think of Longoria's extended playing time today. In general, one would have to believe that it is a good sign. I am starting to believe that Niemann is going to break camp with the team if he has two more good outings.
Here are my current projections for the pitching staff:
Brian Anderson would be the first to be called up to the bullpen if someone struggled or got injured.
Rays face the Twins today. I wonder if Delmon will be in the starting line-up?
