The Lightning made a good move yesterday and signed Dwayne Roloson to a one year deal for $3 million. That buys them some solid goaltending while they see if Smith is going to step up to the next level or one of their junior guys will actually be the next big thing.
They're still haggling with Stamkos though. With no details leaking out, I wonder where the sticking point is. I'd hate to think the kid or his agent is pushing for some unreasonable deal. I know he had a breakout year with the Bolts, buy you'd think there would be some loyalty at play after last season.
The Rays gagged another stellar outing by James Shields who struck out 10 in a losing effort as the Reds won 4-3. With Boston losing Dice K and possibly Lackey to Tommy John surgery, the Sox ought to back up a truck full of money to the Trop and pick up Big Game to fill the roster.
I mean, the local sportwriters, who as we know are the most knowledgable people in the world of athletics, have been saying all year that the Rays should trade the 3 complete game shutout pitcher for a couple of unknown prospects. So . . .
And, speaking of Boston, the Sox finally got back in the win column with a 5-2 victory over the Phillies as Lester notched his 10th win and the ageless Tek hit two home runs from the 5 hole. Running out of superlatives to throw at Varitek . . . just amazing!
