It's Homecoming For Old Favorites In Tampa Bay

A couple of weeks ago, the Lightning brought back defenseman Pavel Kubina, last seen in a Tampa Bay sweater soaked in champagne after winning the Stanley Cup in 2004. Yesterday, Rocco Baldelli, whose last appearance as a player in a Tampa Bay uniform was in the 2008 World Series, began his bid to return to the Rays. How long before the Buccaneers jump on this trend?

Will Warren Sapp be driving his Escalade through the Gates at One Buc Place any time soon? Is John Lynch playing phone tag with Raheem Morris? Have Vinny Testaverde and Jimmie Giles been playing catch at a nearby high school? Who can say with absolute authority that James Wilder doesn't still have a decent time in the 40? What is Mirro Roder up to these days?

Hey, it could happen...
