The Tampa Bay Rays became the first major league team to 20 wins this season, beating the Seattle Mariners last night 8-3.

Seattle broke on top with 2 runs in the fourth, but the Rays tied it with 2 of their own in the 5th. A pair of 3 spots, in the eighth and ninth innings, propelled Tampa Bay to their big league-best 20th win of the season and 11th win in 12 road games this season.

Evan Longoria drove in two for the Rays, who got an 8 inning, 5 strike out performance from Matt Garza, who improves to 5-1 on the season.

Tampa Bay, 20-7 and 1 game ahead of the Yankees in the A.L. East, wrap up their three-game set in Seattle tonight. First pitch is at 10:10pm EDT on 620AM WDAE.

Apparently, they think people are really stupid. First of all, if anyone from MSN was sending out emails, they wouldn't wind up in your junk folder. And if it was from MSN, why does the sender use a yahoo mail box address that ends with yahoo.com.mx?

If you read closely, you'll see sentences that are worded in poor english, poorly punctuated, words capitalized when they shopuldn't be, and at least one instance of a sentence ending and the next beginning, with no space in between. Plus, asking for the personal information that they do, should set off all kinds of very loud alarms.

It's amazing these people (How's the weather in Nigeria these days anyway?) actually think anyone is stupid enough to fall for this scam. Sadly, there will be some who do.

To quote comedian Bill Engvall: "Here's your sign."

Mommy has a job "pre" interview (say what?) this morning and I have to grab some sleep, so I can be up with Jimmy while she's out. Have a good day everybody!
