One of the big highlights here is when the Rays play the Yankees. Yesterday, at the mini-kingdom that Tampa built for George Steinbrenner, it was 12-7 Rays. New guy Sean Rodriguez hit a homer, triple, double... and would have gone for the cycle but came out of the lineup in the 6th, disappointing the fans. In no way was it as much of a blast as the spring training brawl in 2008, below:
Today, the Red Sox come to the Rays spring home in Port Charlotte. Naturally, both games sold out!
