Rocked by 'Rock of Ages'
Jeremy Hellickson, Kelly Johnson, Evan Longoria, Cesar Ramos and radio man Dave Wills were among the Rays taking in the Broadway production of Rock of Ages on Saturday night. "I've seen it twice now; it's awesome," Johnson said. "It's funny, and the songs are great, especially if you like '80s rock, but even if you don't."
If there's a Wil
In his first 33 games, Rays rookie OF Wil Myers has compiled impressive numbers: 22 hits, 7 homers, 26 RBIs. Going back to 1916, only seven other players have done as much in that time span:

Willie McCovey, 1959 Giants
Wally Joyner, 1986 Angels
Mitchell Page, 1977 A's
Buzz Arlett, 1931 Phillies
