It's official: The Devil Rays are the worst team in existence.

They should wear beenie hats with propellers and make airplane sounds when they run.

Manager Joe Maddon must be fining them whenever they hit the cutoff man. Or cover an unoccupied base.

It's like watching 5-year-olds play soccer, when all the kids chase the ball at the same time and kick it in a scrum.

Wasn't Edwin Jackson a hot pitching prospect with the Dodgers? What the heck happened to this guy?

Jackson threw 86 pitches in 3 1/3 innings and allowed six runs and seven hits, with three walks. But he didn't break any laws, besides loitering on the mound, so we'll go easy on him.

Don't forget there's an appetizer being served before tomorrow's game - the resumption of the June 28 suspended game.

I thought we would see Ramon Hernandez at first base, but now that Miguel Tejada is expected to be activated, he'll play shortstop and Brandon Fahey can move to third, with Chris Gomez staying at first. Or Luis Hernandez can play third, if he isn't optioned to make room for Tejada.

Jon Knott also could be optioned, but he does provide some power off the bench, at least theoretically. I'd definitely keep Hernandez because he's playing shortstop better than anyone I've seen here in a while.

Fahey picked a good time to collect two hits.

Manager Dave Trembley hasn't decided on a pitcher for the suspended game, since Chris Ray is on the disabled list.
