Joe Maddon Predicted DeJesus Homer

During Andy Freed's pre-game interview Saturday with Rays manager Joe Maddon he brought up David DeJesus. The conversation began with a discussion about DeJesus comfort level with the Rays after breaking the ice by delivering the winning hit versus Joe Nathan and the Texas Rangers earlier in the week and then Friday's game winner. Joe Maddon spoke on that and then finished the thought with a prediction that came true in the first inning of Sunday's game.

Hes very comfortable here I think already. Of course our guys are going to embrace him as he walks in hes very easy to like, hes a great guy.But youre right the game tie-er the other night and the game winner tonight (Friday) Just good at bats. Hes hitting the ball well. He hits the ball hard, I mean, hes got a home run in him very soon also heads up its going to be over the wall hes just missing some pitches. "

Today David DeJesus homered off Scott Feldman in the first inning. It was his first home run since June 13th against Mat Latos of the Cincinnati Reds.
