Assorted Rays news

It is now official, Dan Johnson had his rights sold to the Yokohama Bay Stars of the Japanese Central League. The original post when the word first broke out.

Cliff Floyd wants to return to Rays in a recent report. The Rays shouldn't bring him back as a player because of his recent shoulder injury and the fact he can't play the outfield. Rather the Rays sign Rocco Baldelli because he can actually play the outfield if needed.

Day after Philles pitcher J.C. Romero was suspended 50 games for testing positive for a banned substance right in the middle of the playoff race. The site Rays Index is very ticked about it and has accused the Philles of cheating. Also another angry blogger at DRaysBay expresses the same anger. This needs to be review by Major League Baseball as players can't be given a choice of when to be suspended, especially concerning playoff implications. If MLB wants to keep baseball clean they need to make the moves necessary actions to do so. Players should be suspended as soon as possible when tested positive. NO EXCEPTIONS!
