There's always another day, another challenge, another night in a 162-game grind that tests mental and physical limits. Few things are like it. Certainly not the NFL, and the NBA season lasts about half as...

Rays Sign Venezuelan Lefthander Francisco Sanchez

The Rays have signed 16-year-old Venezuelan lefthander Francisco Sanchez for $675,000. At 6-foot-1, 180 pounds, Sanchez has flashed swing-and-miss stuff, with a fastball that has touched 94 along with a curveball and a changeup. He will have to learn to repeat his delivery to get the ball in the strike zone more often, although his athleticism should help him there. Sanchez trained...
