    JERUSALEM — They were an international odd couple with seemingly little in common, a 40-something African-American born in Hawaii and an octogenarian Zionist born in a shtetl in Poland. But somehow Barack Obama and Shimon Peres hit it off.

    The name Richard D. Trentlage may not roll off the tongues of most Americans, but generations can no doubt sing along to some of the catchy advertising jingles that he wrote for companies like Oscar Mayer and McDonald's.

    Just try not to.

If Chris Archer gets the loss, he will become the first major-league pitcher with 20 losses since Mike Maroth in 2003, and just the second since 1980.

For starters: Rays at White Sox, Archer vs. history and weather

UPDATE, 6:58: Cash said he won't manage any differently as far as handling Archer with the potential for 20 losses, making decisions based on pitch count and game situations. Cash is mindful of Archer needing 5 1/3 innings to reach 200. ... Though the Rays have been in a skid, Cash said the issue is the injury depleted lineup, not that the players have quit or are mailing it in: "There's no give up, no lack of effort. We've got half of our lineup right now that are getting opportunities. The injuries stink but they do allow for some opportunties. ... Guys are busting it out of the box, they are getting down the line. We've been pitched well against and it's kind of limited us.''...
