GCL Rays rained out


  1. Princeton Rays- Is SS/2B Taylor Motter hurt? He hasn't played at all in August.Or has he been replaced by either Ryan Brett or Justin Hager.

  2. who cares about PR who cares abou HV. AA AAA thats all we should be talking about

  3. well its important to care about PR and HV. They are also, the future of the rays. Everyone starts somewhere.

  4. to Anonymous #2- Who cares about PR and HV? I DO, as well as many other Rays fans. I also care about BG, PC, Mont and, thank you Rays Prospects for covering ALL the teams. :)

  5. :) i am anon #3 and couldn't agree more with you #4. I appreciate raysprospects letting us know each day about all the teams.

  6. Well with Lee and Beckham being promoted today to AA and AAA... It should make for an interesting final month or so... Especially at the SS position for the Rays future


    Do you guys think there is any truth to this or not?

  8. Hmm, let's see. We have an anonymous internet poster who posts from another anonymous internet poster who thinks that Josh and Chris Sale are brothers and then he says that "a former college catcher who played against this guy and knew him pretty well" claims he was juicing. (I must have missed the league that has former college players playing HS players.)

    Might be the dumbest thing ever posted here.

  9. As to the original question, yes Motter is hurt and Hager playing SS. He has been out for a couple weeks now and I have not heard of a date for his return.
