Who am I?
I'm from Houston, a graduate of the University of Texas, a fan of the Houston Astros and Houston Texans. But this blog will be about the "greater sports", whatever that means.
In just a few weeks from delayed "Opening Day", baseball is hitting it's playoff chase stride. And one of the teams of interest is Tampa Bay Rays. As spoiler. They don't have the high payroll or big free agent names of other teams, but they do have young talented players. Like Brandon Lowe. The Rays 26 year old second baseman may be the biggest under the radar star. Mainly because Tampa. But this week he broke out. Lowe scorched his fellow NL East opponent Red Sox and Blue Jays by going 14-29 with 4 HR and 10 RBI. Most importantly, the Rays went 6-1, and this was coming off a weekend sweep of the New York Yankees. Don't look now Bombers, the Rays are on your heels. The Rays will be pests to the presumed NL East Champion Yankees and with this years expanded playoff format, likely to wreck other teams hopes as well. Lowe is set up to lead the charge, and is the Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
