The Muscle Ray

(Okay, I know, the title's a little strained.)

Russell Branyan finally signed the recently-rumored minor-league deal with the Devil Rays.  Seems to me Tampa has the potential to be a nice home for him--he's definitely better than Sean Burroughs and will probably out-play Ty Wigginton, so he could play his way into a starting gig, or at least a platoon.  That depends on new manager Joe Maddon not falling in love with Luis Rivas and playing Cantu or Rivas at third...but, I get ahead of myself.  I really don't care what the Devil Rays do...they'll finish fourth in the division and I will watch approximately two of their games all season, but I'll root for 3TO nonetheless.
