Rays principal owner Stuart Sternberg showed a good sense of humor, and optimism, during a Twitter session with fans.
A question: "If two trains start 30 miles apart and are traveling 60 mph, will Logan Morrison still be hitting .080 when they meet?"
Sternberg's answer: "His average will increase dramatically over the next 2 weeks. Also, the trains will collide in approximately 15 min."
Sternberg also said the Rays are "very" intent on getting a contract extension with CF Kevin Kiermaier, the best offseason decision they made was acquiring OF/DH Corey Dickerson, and they at some point will switch to road jerseys that say Tampa Bay rather than Rays.
