If it helps them stomp on the Sawx then I'm all for it!

This is the craziest deadline in years.

Nice deal for the Rays. They want to go for this now. Hopefully the Pirates don't get screwed on this trade like they have in the past.

Nice deal for the Pirates as well. Brignac is supposed to be a good one. What does this do for Wilson? The Dodgers have to get him now for a dime. :scratch:

If the Pirates get both Brignac and Nieman, that should be a pretty good deal for them!

Bay helps them in the long run too. He's well-priced and they'll have him next year as well.

Completely agree.

Very exciting day in baseball!

Bay will help the Rays offense. Solid move for them if it is a done deal. I wonder if this officially kills the Manny deal?

Not completely cause the LAD want him and the Marlins could try a new 3rd partner.

I wish they would trade him to SF or SD, so he can experience how lucky he has been playing for mostly contenders in his career.

Looking around the Internet at different sites and what not, it appears that this deal is a done deal and that Bay is indeed heading to the Rays!

I really really hope that it is a done deal and that he goes there because I absolutely LOVE the AMAZING story that is the Tampa Bay Rays this year!:D:

Anyone else find it a bit odd that as soon as they get rid of the name "Devil" from their team nickname, that they out of nowhere, EXPLODE and find themselves leading a division that only Boston and the NYY EVER lead?:?:

This would be a GREAT thing for the God Squad to hop on to.

It is sorta strange though. I mean, they have been so bad for so long and now, basically out of nowhere, they are in first place. I wonder if they would be doing this well if they had kept "Devil" in their nickname. I HIGHLY doubt it!

GO RAYS!!! **** THE DEVIL!!

It wasn't really 'out of nowhere.' They have a lot of talent, and they should after being downright terrible for a decade.

Hold the phone....Rosenthal (http://msn.foxsports.com/mlb/story/8397286/Latest-news-and-rumors-from-around-MLB) saying that the crazy 3-way deal involving Manny might be back on and Bay could be going to the Red Sox.

A high ranking Rays official is denying it so who knows now.

I haven't heard anything about Bay to the Rays...too bad. It would be great if they coulda stolen Bay out from under the Sawx nose.

Well this sucks. I hope that somehow, Bay does end up in Tampa. Just to see them hopefully run away with that division. If not, well that still have a pretty good shot at doing just that.

I guess you can't trust everything you read on them internets.

What I don't get is why Bay is not being more highly thought of. The guy had awful line-ups around him in Armpitsburgh, playing in a pitcher's park... and still put up some big numbers.

I haven't seen play this year, so maybe he's not as good anymore.
