Tampa Bay Baseball roundup

First off, a moment of silence for a fallen hero of Tampa Bay Sports...

Al Lopez has passed.

Lopez was the Bay area's first hall of famer and a link to the golden era of Major League baseball - where giants like Ruth and Gehrig roamed.

The other big news is the coming announcement former Astros general manager Gerry Hunsicker will be joining the Tampa Bay Devil Rays front office today. It's not officially a GM job - I don't know exactlyw hat it is but he's coming on board. News conference scheduled for high noon today.
