It’s Monday. Mondays usually stink. But, yesterday the Rays stopped a three-game skid with a 9-8 win over the Orioles.
So, let’s focus on some fun things this afternoon.
Tampa Bay’s pitchers who had the day off sure had some fun yesterday. Joel Peralta danced in the dugout, and as you can see from this screen grab from Cork Gaines, pitching coach Jim Hickey was not all that impressed.
Peralta proceeded to flutter his hands and prance off as if he were a ballerina.
Before the game, David Price helped Jeremy Hellickson show some love for Mom. The following photo comes from Dave Haller, the Director of Communications for the Tampa Bay Rays.
And last, but certainly not least, David Price and James Shields fell victim to a prank by Sean Rodriguez during their visit the the MLB Fan Cave last week. Click here for the video. “You’re on a toboggan!” “Ice rock! Another ice rock!”
Tonight, the Rays will be in Toronto to take on the Blue Jays. Jeff Niemann (2-3, 3.48) gets the start for Tampa Bay while Brandon Morrow (4-1, 2.27) will take the mound for the Jays.
