Tampa Bay Rays news and links: Jose Bautista signs with Atlanta as a third baseman

Hey, don’t we need one of those? The Rays won a series yesterday, but the highlight play of the game wasn’t made on the field. Or maybe it was. The umpires decided that it was, and that that was a problem. Jim Turvey was on the recap, and this is how he described the play: With one out in the fifth, Faria allowed what appeared to be a home run off the bat of Renato Nunez. The ball was caught by a fan, but it was ruled a double (fan interference) on the field. The replays certainly looked like the ball would have cleared the fence with the fan touching it, but that decision wasn’t...

Braves intrigued by the idea of “what if” with signing of Jose Bautista

The Atlanta Braves have brought in “third baseman” Jose Bautista on a minor league deal. There’s plenty of intrigue surrounding this particular signing. As usual, you have to start this with the old baseball caveat that “there is no such thing as a bad minor league deal.” When it comes to these deals, it’s all being done with an idea of figuring out just how much upside there is with the player in question and the Braves have decided to see just how much power Jose Bautista has left in that bat of his. It should be abundantly clear why Bautista ended up having to wait until...
