And his landing spot appears to be a friendly one. Now a Twin, he will be competing with Tyler Austin and Robbie Grossman for at-bats. I think he'll find plenty.

If there's ever a book abt him it will be titled The Cronicles of CJ.

Yeah, good call. Lots depends on where he lands.

Good call, Eugene. The Rays DFA'd Cron yesterday.

Seems like a potential non-tender candidate for the Rays.  Lots of HR, but not much else.  They don't like to offer arbitration to these types of guys.  Perhaps a trade.  I'd go lower.  $10.

I'm working on Big Prices for the Guide. Today I have C.J. Cron with a price of $14. What do you think?

Launched HR number 16 last night. I saw this coming back in February from a power perspective...good for Cron. But the K/BB and BA lead to a below average season. He needs to stop swinging for the fences, like everyone else is doing.On his way to a typical Rob Deer season. He is better than that.

Rays resume their winning ways thanks to Cron's two-run homer in the top of the ninth to the opposite field, breaking a scoreless tie. Miller followed with an opposite field homer the other way.

So... is the ball juiced? Or is it these new swing paths?

Without bothering to hunt around for the data (I'm with you, Andy), I feel very safe in asserting players hit more opposite field homers than they ever used to -- many, many more.

I wonder what the QualCom is of the Rays' lineup? Severino just struck out Cron on four pitches, none of which were in the strike zone.

I'll be surprised if the Rays beat the Yankees three times all year.

Of course, Overbay had a great-looking swing. Cron not so much.
