Weekend Open Thread: With Extra Crab
Maybe I'm just crabby from no baseball and the long winter, but I'm getting a little tired of the Rays keeping everything a national secret. If Jim hadn't reverse-engineered the minor league spring training game schedule (over two weeks ago!) we still wouldn't have it. Not exactly helpful for family and friends of the players (and fans too) who want to schedule trips to see minor league spring training.
Okay, so I am a little crabby. But still, I'm not asking for an exclusive or anything, post it on MiLB or give it to DRaysBay or RaysIndex or Stacy Long... or anybody. Just get the information out there for the folks who care about it, the fans of the teams. Enough of my whining.
I'm looking forward to reading Kevin's RaysProspects 2011 Prospect Guide, which is scheduled to be available for free download on Monday. The Guide is by far the biggest project ever undertaken at RP, and all of the credit goes to Kevin.
I did start a new site for non-Rays-related baseball posts called Triple Play Depth. Everything about the Rays will still be posted here, but I wanted somewhere to write about baseball topics that really didn't fit at RP. I'm just getting started, but let me know what you think of it so far. And as always, have a great weekend!
