Look at the system

Here's the weekly look around the Tampa Bay system and at selected Wayward Biscuits. Now don't consider this an excuse to not buy Sunday's paper, if it's available. =)

Some probably won't actually appear in Sunday's edition because of space constraints.

LHP Jeff Ridgway gave up a run Friday in his third appearance since being promoted. Ridgway has allowed four hits in four innings.
SS B.J. Upton has a .291 average, 31 walks and 17 errors in 48 games.
OF Rocco Baldelli is 4-for-8 through three games of his rehabilitation assignment. He's scored three runs.
RHP Tim Corcoran is 4-0 with a 1.27 ERA.
1B Kevin Witt has 10 hits, six extra-base hits and seven RBIs in his last five games. He has a .320 average, 11 home runs and 32 RBIs this year.
