    Previewing the AL East: Tampa Bay Rays

    On one of the occasions that John Angelos opened his mouth to talk about the Orioles over the last couple of months, one of the things that he said is that he sees the Tampa Bay Rays, along with the Cleveland Guardians and Milwaukee Brewers, as examples of teams who can have sustained success in smaller markets. Exactly in what way the current reigning Angelos would like for his family's franchise to emulate the Rays is not something he directly established. On a basic level of how often they make and succeed in the postseason, the Rays can be envied. In that same stretch of time, there have only been two 162-game seasons where the Rays won fewer than 80 games.

    Moderation is key for Rays pitcher Josh Fleming

    Josh Fleming may be the only pitcher who is trying to slow himself down this spring. The Rays lefty knows the difference between when he is throwing pitches with intent and when he is thinking too far ahead. After giving up the two runs in the first, he did strike out four in the Rays' 5-2 loss at Hammond Stadium. In six spring training appearances, Fleming has pitched to a 4.91 ERA.
