"Now, what is this site about, how Joe Torre ruined pitchers' arms? Is that it?"

I made an interesting discovery just now while looking up the pitching probables for the upcoming series: apparently all Tampa Bay Rays’ home games begin at eight minutes past the hour this season (7:08, 4:08, 1:08).

I know games in Toronto begin at 7:07 p.m. for some reason and Chicago White Sox games begin at 7:11 CT because of a sponsorship deal with 7-Eleven, but 7:08 is just odd.  Last season they began games at the more conventional 10 minutes past the hour

Does anyone have an answer as to why their home games begin at 7:08?

It could have to do with the TV station their on. The Braves always had weird start times because TBS always started shows at 5 minutes past the hour or half hour.

@YankeesUpdate said it has to do with the radio stations and their top of the hour newscasts. Silly Rays.

I just want Wang to pitch like the guy who won 19 games twice.
