Charlie's Angels win intrasquad game

The Devil Rays played their first intrasquad game Tuesday and "Charlie's Angels" -- named for their manager -- beat "Hoff's Hackers" 2-0.

Reid Brignac homered off Edwin Jackson, and Shawn Riggans hit an RBI double for the Angels, who unfortunately did not feature Cameron Diaz or Lucy Liu in bikinis as inspiration. Manager Charlie Montoyo hopefully pursued such recruits.

The Hackers were named for their manager, field coordinator Jim Hoff, Not sure who the Hackers could have turned to.

When I was in college, I covered the baseball team for three years. One year, at the end of fall practice, the team's intrasquad series featured teams named for two seniors: "Jerry's Kids" played "Laubey's Legion."

The Devil Rays won't have as much time to talk trash as the winning senior did after that series, though there is another intrasquad game Wednesday. Tampa Bay's spring exhibition schedule opens Friday against the Yankees.
