How cheap is Stu Sternberg? Refsnyder was purchased from the Indians after spring training for 750k. Sternberg gets his 750k back if Refsnyder gets a certain amount of plate appearances this year. Hence, the reason a guy with a batting avg below .200 and no defense is in the lineup everyday

Best triple A team in MLB. Royals a close 2 nd

Granted I have not watched a lot of games this season, but Miller is the ONLY name I recognize 😳

Why are Ramos, Archer, Cron, and Hech still on the team? Why aren't they traded yet for a few more Single A pitchers. You cant have enough Single A pitchers in your organization you know.

Jamie Schultz was called up from Durham.

Romo is starting again ? Who pitches after that ?

Well they still have Archer for now

LETS GO RAYS !!!

Strive for five (.500)

Let's go Rays you got this!!!

Anthony Banda earned his first win with us on a career-high 6.1 IP. ...

LHP Anthony Banda was optioned back to Durham. A corresponding move will be made tomorrow. Don't go crazy Rays fans, going 6 innings he wouldn't pitch for a bit so they may bring up another fresh arm for the time being, Banda 🐻 will be back.

I didn't like the fire sale either, but if the whiners would fill the stadium they would have enough to keep good players. It's not about making money, but keeping the team in the Tampa Bay area. My wife is and has been a season ticket holder.

They are getting some good young talent

Who cares, both teams are terrible

We drove 2 hours to be there today and if this continues we believe...it’s hard with what sternberg does but they do have talent

Should probably trade him and get a middle infield prospect to be named later.

AND NOW THEY ARE SENDING HIM BACK TO DURHAM... More complete idiocy from Rays management

Way to go ! Rays Up !, keep it going💜⚾️

If Banda gets the credit show him in the video I would be one upset Mom if he were my son 😬

Smart trades this week. Not sold on this pitching experiment. Burns up options by sending pitchers back and forth to aaa and not in the best interest of the pitchers career. A pitcher conditions himself very differently based on how many pitches he expects to throw on an average day.

Drew this in a pack this week too 🤘

Was at the game today. Very impressed with Stanek and Banda’s pitching. Daniel Robertson looked very good at short. Always fun to watch the Rays when they play like this. Go Rays!!

Good job Banda. Good job Rays. Got the bats going today. Keep up the good work. So sad about Span. I really liked him. He was a calming presence, good leader, and good player.

that "slide" into 2nd, though.... omg

This seems to be the Rays MO this year. Score early and often and then hold on.

He was dealing

Glad to hear about Colome but not of Spann

Awesome job guys!

Great game. We enjoy it!

All wins are good

Great game Rays

Y can’t he stay?

Great job by Stanek and Banda today! Refsynder too!! And a few others.

🗝️Play every game like it is game 7...every game💡 Still early in the game...you very possibly can have that first place and more👁️🌍👁️ Great job!!!

Rays giving away too many outs on the basepaths. Who's the baserunning coach?

I photobombed the scoreboard hehe

Robertson made killer plays today

Great win today..Great plays by Robertson!! Pitching looked good!!🎉⚾

Robertson is turning into an all star.

Bases loaded, no outs = no runs! Awesome baseball. Lmao

Gomez had two walks and the Reefer had an RBI. Is this Opposite World?

And without Colome and Span... How did that happen? Great game, listened to Dave and Andy while at the beach today. Great to jump out to that early lead and hold on. Let's finish this series with a W and carry the mojo to the west coast #RaysUp

#RaysUp

Way to go team.

A moment he'll never forget, thanks to Kevin Kiermaier. ...

That’s MY son!!! It truly is a moment he will never forget ❤️

Incredibly awesome guy. Came out and played catch with my kid too. Can’t wait for his return

That was absolutely great! I'm sitting here with a happy grin on my face.

Is that what you call a pitch-posal? It could become the biggest thing since prom-posals.

That's my nephew!!!! 😍😍

Thank you Rays and KK for the very special moment!!! Go Rays!!!!

Leave it to Kevin Kiermaier & the kid to do a nice job.

One very 1st Class Guy. You are super. What a moment for this boy. 👏🏻👏🏻⚾️

Love it, this kid will remember that the rest of his life. Way to go KK

Way to go KK Always a class act and making people smile.

I love and appreciate the young man’s thank you at the end.

Those are the kind of players you need to keep on your team and in your community by the way!

What a GREAT way to help continue building a fan base here in Tampa Bay!!!

So cute and such a memory for that little boy

Looks like his thumb is improving!

The kids in Seattle are really gonna love him after he’s inevitably traded to the mariners for prospects

Peggy Pedersenhey, we got to go areal game ( for free ) a few weeks ago, it was Awesome against the Texas Rangers!!!!

He wouldn’t take a pic with my daughter before a game because he is “superstitious” 🙄

That will be one of the biggest moments in his life ! I hope he has many more.....

Kevin You Are Going To Make A Great Father!

That's so awesome way too go

I heard their getting a uniform for Cash . Just in case.

I wonder if it will be him or Archer next to Go bye bye

Not bad 80mph fastball over the heart of the plate

Lance Nighthawk Womack Jackson was like can that be me someday playing catch with Kevin Kiermaier? 😊

Waiting for new ownership and to be a playoff team again like during the Joe Maddon era

Missing Span already...Our main player, gone...Makes NO sense 😤😵

Miller replacing Span at leadoff? God help us all!

Whose next Rays management? KK?

When are we going to get some starters???? Need two more!!

This franchise is a joke

Things must really be bad when you use relief pitchers as starters.

Should have included Duffy in the Seattle deal before he ends up on the DL again

Let's see if he can get out of the first inning🤔🤔🤔

I mean at least we got a double-A pitcher with an over-3 ERA and a single-A pitcher with a near-3 ERA. What a savvy move.

Would be a decent line up without Refsnyder

What a bad lineup please no Refsnyder

Ramos is the next to go. Watch. 😞

Still a fan, but it hurts to watch. No disrespect to the roster, but it’s hard to respect management when they don’t respect us.

I miss Longo. Steven Sousa JR and now Span.

One thing the Ray's players don't have is job security. It must be nerve racking and distracting to not know if you will be part of the team tomorrow. A guy plays his hardest and the next day he is gone.

💙Go Rays, go Stanek!💙 Welcome back 💙Gomez💙and welcome to the team Wilmer Font. Let's get a win!!

Smith ought to be leading off not Miller, what is he thinking?

The Ramos watch begins. Will we get a low A or a high A prospect for him? So thrilled Gomez is back (not). At least Refsnyder is not in the lineup (actually he is🤢).....

Great job..good win ! Do whatever it takes...and Colume's new hat is on straight ! Hah..gangsta days are over.

Done with Tampa. Go braves!!!

I looked at the lineup & do not recognize a single name on it. I miss the days when I knew who was playing 1st base& who was in centerfield & who the shortstop was:(

Still tryin to figure out why y’all traded Span

We have Kenny powers on the mound!!

maybe miller will be traded next he was talked about during the offseason

This evening, the City of Coral Springs turned the page on a new chapter of its history with the official ribbon cutting for the new Municipal Complex. The original ceremony, which was scheduled for February 17, was postponed after the Marjory Stoneman Douglas tragedy. To honor the victims and their families, Mayor Skip Campbell asked the crowd to pause for a moment of silence. He reminded those in attendance that in the wake of such tragedy, our residents and business owners showed their resiliency, generosity and compassion.

Of the symbolic event, Mayor Skip Campbell remarked, “When we held the groundbreaking ceremony two years ago, I said that I felt like the closer in the 9th inning. After all, this 74,000-square-foot municipal complex has been more than a decade in the making. Ladies and gentleman, the series is finally over and the winners are the residents and businesses that call Coral Springs home.”

Already we have experienced major, positive outcome with the recent sale of the Financial Plaza to a private developer, who plans to build a hotel, restaurants and retail stores. The Municipal Complex will serve as the backdrop to exciting City events like Artoberfest, Downtown in December, Unplugged and Savor the Notes.

With the new Municipal Complex, the City offers a “One Stop Shop,” which includes the Chamber of Commerce, local elected officials and easier access to the Building and Code Enforcement Departments.
