These courtesy calls are necessary because the Rays again are challenging convention, this time on what it means to be a starting pitcher. The series in Tampa highlighted the virtues of the Rays' approach to their pitching staff - and exposed its shortcomings. The Rays have created a glossary in defining how they use their rotation.

CLOSE Reigning IndyCar champion Josef Newgarden led all but two laps in winning at Road America and scored his third victory of the season. There's always a common denominator with these incidents, and it's always Alexander Rossi. Unlike Sato, Wickens said he doesn't plan to talk to Rossi about the incident or even hold it against him. That seems as far as Wickens will go in holding a grudge against Rossi.
