Chris Archer: Strikeout Celebration Came In ‘Infant Stages Of My Career’

There were a lot of raised eyebrows around the baseball world when Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Chris Archer called out David Ortiz for his bat flip Sunday night.

2014 Fantasy Baseball Value: Is Ben Zobrist on the move?

The second wild card has thrown a monkey wrench into the whole trade deadline process. It’s even caused some people to propose pushing the non-waiver deadline back into August. The problem is that too many teams think they are still in the hunt when the deadline comes this Thursday. The Rays are one of those teams caught in no man’s land.
