Over the last few years, the Rays have been setting the bar for small market clubs. Although I wonder if they would have gotten a title had they drafted Buster Posey #1 in 2008 instead of high school SS Tim Beckham.

Whole lot of nothing going on with the Padres. Mild reason for optimism as they closed the season 42-33 after the All Star Break. But it still looks like the ownership is still getting sorted out. At least they're moving the fences in this year.
