MLB: There are a ton of baseball promotions right now. Check out this one that gives you a chance to win two tickets to the 2009 All-Star Game. Oh, and the Devil Rays are doing so well that they are already taking deposits for 2009 season tickets. Speaking of baseball, don’t forget to follow the USA Olympic baseball team.
