The Rays are interested in Jason Giambi

The Red Sox have added Adrian Gonzalez and Carl Crawford. The Yankees have locked up their core players and may have Cliff Lee shortly.  Think the Rays are worried? Ha! Think again:

Hearing that the Rays have expressed interest in Jason Giambi. I know that he wants to continue playing.

That settles it. If Tampa Bay can pull this off I see no way that they will not be the 2001 AL East champions.

White Sox first baseman José Abreu underwent lower abdominal surgery on Tuesday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. It was an outpatient procedure that is expected to keep him away from baseball activity for two weeks.

Abreu, 31, was held out of Tuesday’s lineup, his first day off in more than two months. This season, Abreu has hit a productive .272/.331/.491 with 22 home runs and 78 RBI in 526 plate appearances.

The White Sox will likely play Matt Davidson at first base and put Daniel Palka at DH while Abreu is out.
