In attendance at last night's game to watch Dontrelle Willis pitch was the great Mudcat Grant. In case you don't know Mudcat Grant this excerpt from the Baseball Library should help.

Chris Rock in an interview with Richard Deitsch for SI.com spoke his opinion about contracting teams in MLB.
Rock: You probably don't need two baseball teams in Florida. I think attendance tells us that. I would say the Devil Rays have to go. At least the Marlins have won championships. But baseball needs to contract. All those highlights of empty seats? It's starting to look like a USFL game.
I wish Mr. Rock well with his tickets sales for his next concert in the St. Petersburg/Tampa area.
