I know what you’re thinking and no, today’s Diamondbacks starter isn’t the same Robert “Bobby” Ray who took the ball four times for the Blue Jays in 2009 — a year in which they went twelve starters deep and gave the ball a holy-shitting amount of times to guys like Brian Tallet (25 starts) and Scott Richmond (24)!
Oh, you weren’t thinking that? I’m the only one who thinks that whenever he sees Ray’s name starting for Arizona?
Also, Ben Nicholson-Smith writes atSportsnet that Marco Estrada is on track for his next start, despite experiencing tightness in his back in last night’s loss. John Gibbons is kinda hoping his ace will keep his bat on his shoulder in Colorado, though.
Great stuff from Brendan Kennedy of the Toronto Star, as he looks at the evolution of J.A. Happ. (It’s worth getting past the groan-worthy headline).
