You have to wonder what the hell the Rays were thinking. No reason at all to make this deal today.
1) They are still in contention and are the hottest team in baseball.

A's and Tigers would be my guess, but you never know with the Angels still there, which could put the A's in the one game wild card....

Rays got ripped. Stupidest move of the day. They are still in the race with the way they have been playing and still could trade Price after the season or even at next year's trade deadline and would have done much better than they did this year....

This is coming from an Iowa fan. We should be a decent to good team this year with a horrible schedule. Anything less than 9-3 would be a bad year with this schedule. Having said that, I think we finish 9-3 with losses to Pitt, Wisconsin and either Nebraska or NW....

1.5 inches thick. Guess that would be slightly over a pound. Perfect everytime. Anything thinner, then it is hard to get a good crust on the outside without overcooking the inside. Could also go to thicker cut if you wanted to split it with someone. I would rather have a thicker steak split in ...

| O-T Lounge|| Lawn Mower Recommendation - RedHawk on 6/26/14 at 2:30 pm|
My 15 year Craftsman mower went kaput last week and need a new one. My yard isn't that big, but it is a bit thick with bermuda grass.
Was leaning towards the Troy Bilt with 160 CC Honda motor for $249 at Lowes. But they also have a Husqvarna with front wheel drive and same motor for $329.
