Ranking the Rays: Romero star for night

Ranking the players' performances around the Tampa Bay organization from Thursday's Opening Night, in my usually deviant opinion ...

1. Enny Romero, BWG: 5 shutout IP, 1 hit, 8 K's
2. Marquis Fleming, MGM: 2 perfect IP, 25 pitches, 19 strikes
3. Derek Dietrich, BWG: 3 RBIs, HR
4. Neil Schenk, MGM: 1 IP, 4 pitches
5. Steve Hiscock, BWG: 3 shutout IP, 1 hit
6. Matt Moore, MGM: 5 IP, 1 run, 2 hits, 7 K's, loss

Did you get a look at the stadium gun for Marquis Fleming? Joe Davis on radio said one change-up registered at 70 mph and another at 74. What what his fastball like? Assuming 89-92, a near-20 mph difference is sick.

I didn't notice, but we did get confirmation tonight that the stadium gun remains about two ticks slow.

Matt Moore did hit 96 on it Thursday, so that likely translates to a 98.
