Smell of success
After adding Sex Panther on Friday, manager Joe Maddon made another addition to the clubhouse cologne table: a vintage bottle of Hai Karate Oriental Lime, in original packing from the late 1960s, that he found on eBay. "I don't know that it's essentially like a good wine or a fine wine, I don't know that it gets better," Maddon said. "I would bet on it getting worse."
Rays manager Joe Maddon follows horse racing so little that he didn't even know Saturday was the Preakness Stakes. But he said that when Evan Longoria asked if he wanted in on their clubhouse pool, he bought $50 entries for two different sheets and randomly picked No. 6 (which is matched blindly to the field). "I have no idea what I'm doing," Maddon said. "It turns out California Chrome was 6 on both cards. I doubled down today."
Numbers of day
