Morning Round-up: Ex-Rays edition

Many familiar faces in the other dug out for last night's series opening game against the Baltimore Orioles at Camden Yards.  Two of former Rays pitchers did their part to end the Rays 12-game domination of the O's.  In honor or Mark Hendrickson and Danys Baez... here's the morning round-up.

The Baltimore Sun talks about Hendrickson and the O's big victory last night.  A couple interesting tid bits out of this article. I didn't realize Hendrickson was 7-1 in April.  The other was that Hendrickson told Orioles manager Dave Trembley that he didn't have any more gas after the Carlos Pena single.  

Speaking of Hendrickson, the Sun's Toy Department blog (not sure the meaning behind this name) chronicle's Hendrickson basketball vs baseball decision in the 90's. Interesting read.  Hendrickson is actually doing something that Michael Jordan wished he could've done. Of course, I don't think MJ would trade his basketball success for Hendrickson's journeyman baseball career. Here's more on Jordan posterizing Hendrickson from the Palm Beach Post last year.

Marc Topkin of the Times pointed out all of the Rays miscues in last night's lost.  Rays need to tighten it up tonight.  Jump on Guthrie early and get to the bullpen again.  Restore the balance of power.
