Also from today's Rays tales: Rumblings on Matsui's arrival, Price's bats, radio rankings

Rays rumblings

OF/DH Hideki Matsui seems likely to join the Rays this week, maybe for the weekend series in Boston. … LHP David Price ordered his own bats for interleague play, and they’re inscribed, in honor of his dog, ASTRO PRICE. … The radio team of Andy Freed and Dave Wills was voted 10th best in the majors in a reader poll based on charisma/analysis/overall; No. 1 was the Giants. … 3B Evan Longoria might be

ahead of schedule in recovering from his partially torn hamstring, but an early return is still  June. … Headline on’s SweetSpot blog last week: MLB’s best closer … Fernando Rodney?!?! … RHP Jeremy Hellickson joined Twitter, @JHell58, and, being a man of few words anyway, will probably find the 140-character limit to his liking.
