@ranalli2195 yup. taveras hasn't proven anything yet. neither has polanco, but it's not worth the swap just yet 6 minutes ago

@ranalli2195 McCarthy/Polanco for me 23 minutes ago

@BaseballBread Perhaps we should re-visit contraction. Why should Tampa have a team they don't/can't support? #Rays 38 minutes ago

@BaseballBread still doesn't cut it. Just a horrible deal. about 1 hour ago

Still waiting for some to tell me the Price deal for the #Rays is an April Fool's joke or something. Smyly and Franklin? Really? about 1 hour ago
