The Kaz Trade's Silver Lining?
Scott Kazmir has a new number (22) and a new team name on his jersey. The deal is done, he will make his scheduled start today and go for his 9th win, but he’ll be doing it in red for the Angels. The silver lining is that the move frees up a spot in the rotation for Troll favorite, Andy Sonnanstine. Sonny was sent to AAA for a tune up and he had seemingly been forgotten, but he has rejoined the Rays and will get the start tonight against the Red Sox, a team that he has owned! There is other good news, too. Aki is back and hit a home run in his second game, Pena is hot and slugging like crazy and Fernando Perez and Shawn Riggans are back to give the club more pinch hitting and defensive options. This series against the Sox will probably determine whether or not the Rays can get the Wild Card. Go Rays! Troll out.
