Bucs v Rays

Jeanmar Gomez will start against Tampa Bay's Alex Cobb in today's contest. It's a last chance for Gomez (0-2, 9.00 ERA), who still harbors slim hopes for a bullpen spot. The game is at McKechnie Field with a  1:05 start time, and it won't be broadcast.

Lineup: Alex Presley CF, Jose Tabata LF, Felix Pie RF, Gaby Sanchez 1B, Brandon Inge 3B, Mike McKenry C, Josh Harrison 3B, Jordy Mercer 2B, John McDonald SS and Jeanmar Gomez P.

Inge was a late scratch after being posted in the lineup; most of the guys are getting a last peep by Clint and the boys.

Pitchers: Jeanmar Gomez, Jason Grilli, Mike Zagurski and ?

We don't think Gomez can work his way onto the staff; the game is more important for guys like Zagurski.

  • Remember 2008-09 Bucco back-up infielder Luis Cruz? He could end up the Dodgers' starting SS while Hanley Ramirez is on the mend.
  • The Reds grand experiment has fizzled; they announced that Aroldis Chapman, much to the relief of Dusty Baker, won't join the rotation but remain the Cincy closer.
  • March 22, 1991 - At Sotheby's in New York‚ a 1909-10 baseball card in mint condition of Honus Wagner was auctioned off for $451‚000 to hockey star Wayne Gretzky and LA Kings owner Bruce McNall. The Wagner cards are so valuable because the Dutchman refused to endorse tobacco products, and only 57 cards were printed before he had production stopped.
