Guest of the day
Bucs DT Gerald McCoy surprised his two kids, Nevaeh, 7, and Marcellus, 11, by taking them to their first Rays game Sunday. McCoy, along with his fiancee, Ebony, said it was a thrill to meet the likes of manager Joe Maddon and Cy Young winner David Price while touring the clubhouse. "I met David Price, and I shook his hand, and he knew who I was," McCoy said. "I'm like, 'Cool, you're on the cover of a video game!' "
LHP David Price has said the bobblehead of his French bulldog, Astro, given out at Sunday's game was spot-on. Astro posed with his likeness in the dugout.
