Joel Peralta has dropped his appeal and will begin serving his 8-game suspension immediately. The Rays have also officially added Brooks Conrad to the roster, Jeff Keppinger has been activated from the DL, and Brandon Gomes has been recalled from Durham.

The Joel Peralta pine tar incident has been the talk of baseball.
The saga continued Thursday night at Nationals Park when well-known D.C. heckler Robin Ficker began berating Joe Maddon.
According to Channing Pejic’s Twitter, Ficker yelled, “Check for pine tar,” and, “See, Maddon, it can be done without pine tar” to the Rays’ skipper.
Maddon is not one to put up with that behavior.
As his response, he wrote, “Stick up for those you care about” on a ball, smeared some pine tar on it, then threw it to Ficker.
Lesson learned: Don’t mess with Joe.

This. So hard.
I shall nickname him Puffer. This is because his face swells up like a puffer fish in damn near every photograph.
