As if there hasn't been enough coverage …
The Rays congratulated Warren Sapp on his Hall of Fame induction by planning to honor the former Buc with a ceremonial first pitch Aug. 24. Manager Joe Maddon has met and talked with Sapp several times — "He's really a fun guy" — and considers him a "Friend O'Rays." Also, that he'd have made a heck of a catcher: "For instance, if (Boston's Daniel) Nava had slid into him as opposed to (Jose Molina on Monday), Nava would not have had that walkoff hit (Thursday) night."
Close call of the day
RHP Alex Cobb made a rehab start Saturday in Port Charlotte, and while the pitching part went well, he did have a scare. Cobb, who was injured when struck by a line drive June 15, was in the Class A Stone Crabs dugout between innings when a foul ball whizzed by. "About 3 inches from my face," Cobb said. "Luckily we avoided that."
