Headlines I Would Like To See When I Get Back From Vacation

I will be traveling out of the country for the next 8 days. When I get back home and look to catch up on Rays’ news, here are some headlines I would like to see in no particular order:

  • Crawford Steals 7 Bases in Game
  • Marlins’ Attendance Reaches Triple Digits for the Season
  • Marlins Attacked by Landshark Stadium
  • Dale Thayer Gets 1st MLB Save with 1-2-3 9th

  • Delmon Young Throws Helmet at Umpire, Misses, Still Suspended 50 Games
  • Pat Burrell Goes Yard Twice in Return from DL
  • Scott Kazmir Admits he Can’t Find “The Issue,” Accepts Minor League Assignment

  • Dan Wheeler Blows Lead…Again. Offense Bails Him Out in 9th…Again.
  • Gabe Gross Disgusted at his Sick Game
  • Kazmir Hits Victor Martinez in the Face, Gets Suspended 15 Games
    (Author’s note: this wouldn’t be a bad thing at all, and I should add this to the Kazmir options in yesterday’s post)
  • Jorge Cantu Remembers who he is, Gets Golden Sombrero in Rays Victory
  • Joe Mauer to Take Weekend Off Due to Pink-Eye, Navarro Questioned in Farting on his Pillow

  • David Price Named AL Rookie of the Week
  • Andy Sonnanstine Lowers ERA to 6.85
  • Lebron James Shows up to Indians-Rays Game Wearing Rays’ Hat, Rumors Fly
  • Matt Garza Listens to “I Love it When you Call me Big Papa” on his IPod While Pitching, Flirts with No-Hitter, Shuts Out Indians
  • Zorilla Strikes Again!
  • Carlos Pena First Major Leaguer to 20 Homeruns
  • Joe Magrane Quits MLB Network, Comes Back to Rays’ Booth
  • Lakers Lose in 5 (ok this doesn’t have anything to do with the Rays, but I’m just really sick and tired of Lakers fans)
  • Akinori Iwamura Turns Unassisted Triple Play
  • Grant Balfour’s Fastball Hits 97 as he Strikes-Out 5
  • Rays on a Roll, Looking Like ’08 Team Again.

If a few of these actually happen, I will be quite happy. If I had to pick one to see, it would be the last one. Who knows if these will come true. Predicting the future isn't rocket scienice.
