Todays pre-game is a little more special than the usual ones for the fact that the Rays open up where Trop Talk’s name was conceived. Tropicana Field. The wait for the first game is over. Make sure if you are going tonight you get there early so you do not miss any of the festivities and get to watch the banner rise.
What To Watch For:
Kid-K is getting his second start of the season tonight against the Yanks. Kazmir looked strong against the Sox in the six innings he pitch. Lets watch for Scotty to utilize his slider to finish batters off tonight. Oh, and a low pitch count wouldn’t hurt either. Evan Longoria is on fire as of late. Longo is so far showing no signs of sophomore slumps. I know it might be earily but can someone say A.L M.V.P.? Lets not forget B.J. comes back tonight. Trust me, we have smiles on our faces.
The Crowd.The Rays were 21-2 last season when they had at least 30,000 in attendance. I hope everyone is ready for the Seven Nation Army Chant again. Also Kid-K needs to be big tonight. A great game from him can easily make for a great home opener.
