Noteworthiness

— Another night when the Rays are in town for Yankees history:

— Per the Rays PR department, four other great players have finished their careers against Tampa Bay: Mariano Rivera, Jason Giambi, Jorge Posada and Jim Thome.

— The Matt Duffy era begins tonight in earnest. Duffy will take over shortstop duties, hitting second.

— Just finished with another productive (and exciting) #BaseballForever meeting. Everyone should be just as excited as I! Still, we need your support as a community. There are two ways you can help support our efforts in the short-term:

  1. Attend our last watch party before the Baseball Forever Night at the Trop tonight at Ferg’s in St. Pete.
  2. Purchase a ticket to the Baseball Forever Night at the Trop on Friday, August 19th.

— Don’t forget, you can read about tonight’s pitching matchup in our series preview.
