Welcome to your Wednesday edition of Outside The Confines. It’s hard to believe we’re already almost three weeks into the season. The Rays’ win streak is over, but they’ve won something: they don’t currently have the lowest attendance in baseball, as you’ll see later in the links.

The Padres lineup is about to get more stacked. Mookie Betts is about to try a new position. The Tigers have made club history (and not for something bad!), and the Atlantic League is previewing what might be the next big MLB rule changes.

Let’s get into today’s links!

And tomorrow will be a better day than today, Buster. Make it so.
