I was surprised twice today. The first was when I checked into my St. Petersburg hotel and didn't find a Palmetto bug. You have to understand, that it was this same hotel earlier this year that I entered my room and immediately was greeted by one of these cockroach-looking things. I immediately...

Those who demand "More Cowbell!" will find plenty to cheer about during this series, as the give-away on Wednesday night at the Trop is a Rays Cowbell. That promotional styling (only available to the lucky first 15,000!) aside, there's also the matter of supremacy in the American League East to...

I'm going to leave this up for a bit ... I will be doing a mailbag , for which the answers will be posted Wednesday. We have to start the questioning off somewhere, so this is as good a place as any.
