8/20/12: Jeff Keppinger has a double-play ball/hot potato/small asteroid go through his glove in the fourth inning
“I just broke it,” Keppinger said. “I know (Royals first baseman Eric) Hosmer got on base later in the game he’s like, ‘Man, that happens to me every two weeks, so be prepared for it to happen again.’”
Not going to lie, he is at the top of my favorites from this year. He has been the consistent in our lineup, the quintessential small ball player that will build championships here in Tampa Bay, backed up with our flawless pitching.

and stumbled across this: “On March 31, 2009, Keppinger was traded to the Houston Astros for Minor League IF Drew Sutton.”
Well, that’s something I didn’t know. I’m sure they talked about it when they were teammates this year.

It fits Keppy.

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.
To make room on the roster Matt Joyce has been placed on the DL, Rich Thompson has been sent back to triple-A, and Drew Sutton has been designated for assignment and placed on waivers.
Phew. A lot of moving around lately. Good luck in the future, Sutton.
I want a Keppy jersey.
There has never been a greater truth.
Dude always has a goofy ass smile going on.
