Tampa Bay Rays
New technology looks to change our understanding of the art of pitching.
Baseball has consistently been the leader in finding an innovative way to look at a sport that’s been around for well over 100 years.
Asdrubal Cabrera hit a two-run homer in the seventh inning that proved to be the difference.
Steve Souza Jr. hit a tying RBI single, stole second with the help of a replay challenge and scored the winning run on an error.
White Sox starter John Danks (3-6) gave up five runs (three earned) and eight hits in 5 1/3 innings.
John Danks opposes Matt Andriese tonight at Tropicana Field.
The Rays raised the issue after Maddon left for Chicago last November.
The Cubs have vehemently denied the Rays’ accusation.
Maddon wants to hang out at the Cubby Bear after a win this upcoming season.
At issue is when agent Alan Nero had contact with the Cubs.
Theo Epstein and Maddon have denied any tampering occurred.
Maddon became a household name in his nine seasons managing the Rays.
“I feel badly about it,” Joe Maddon says.
“This is a one-in-107-year opportunity for me,” Maddon says.
Maddon has a career winning percentage of .517.
Unconventional thinking is a staple of new Cubs manager Joe Maddon.
Baseball is a cutthroat business, as Friday afternoon showed.
Joe Maddon is considered one of baseball’s top managers.
Maddon’s a really good manager, but big names haven’t panned out for the Cubs in years past.
Still, Maddon has had interest from at least 15 teams already, Alan Nero says.
