OAKLAND, Calif. — LHP Drew Smyly takes the mound tonight for Rays with a 10-game winless streak, the second most losses (11) in the American League, a 5.64 ERA that is the highest in the majors for any pitcher with more than 90 innings.
As they should, the Rays are talking about a lot of things leading up to the Aug. 1 deadline for nonwaiver trades, most pointedly the wisdom of dealing from their stockpile of starters, whether to part with Chris Archer, Matt Moore and/or Jake Odorizzi now or, inevitably, later.

Michelle Obama. While the world went into complete meltdown mode over Melania Trump's Republication National Convention speech - parts of which were taken from Michelle Obama's 2008 convention speech - the current First Lady was staying classy. The Internet waited patiently for Obama to tweet out a response, hoping for a Katy Perry-style reaction gif. But nothing. Instead, we got the most epic "Carpool Karaoke" with Late Late Show host James Corden. The two talked about the secret service, joked about being members of Beyonce's "Beyhive" and discussed the rare treat of leaving the White House.
