Tired of the Red Sox cutting off the PA system music during their batting practice, as they have the last few years for all teams, the Rays came up with a creative solution Saturday.
CF B.J. Upton brought out a boombox, they set it up near the batting cage and ran an extension cord from the dugout, for an instant soundtrack. About halfway through the session, the PA system came back on with some music best described as "pop organ."
The Rays, it should be noted, have started giving the Sox the silent treatment at Tropicana Field.
