Numbers of the day
12 Times new Rays LHP Drew Smyly used the word "excited" in a four-minute meeting with reporters.
105⅓ Innings thrown by Smyly this season for Detroit.
76 Innings thrown by Smyly for the Tigers last year, out of the bullpen.
The Rays took a team picture before Saturday's game. The image was incomplete — new pitcher Drew Smyly had just entered the stadium and didn't have time to make it. The Rays also left an empty chair in memory of Don Zimmer, the senior baseball adviser who died in June.
Mashed Potato Heads
Rays manager Joe Maddon delivered a box of the Mr. Potato Head toys in his likeness to Angels manager Mike Scioscia, who responded by showing Maddon a video of him using the toys for soft-toss practice in his office. "Oh, we're sending him a bill," said Maddon, who coached under Scioscia with the Angels. "There's potatoes flying everywhere."
