    On the outfield wall at The Trop are images of the Evan Longoria and David Price bobblehead’s that will be given away at upcoming games. Somebody has been having fun with Price’s bobblehead as can be seen in this video clip (fast forward to the 1:35 mark). First there was […]

     
  • Why The Rays Suck: BJ Upton

    The Rays just went from playoff-lock to out of the playoffs in about 12.6 nanoseconds. So now we will introduce a semi-regular feature to see where we can or cannot lay the blame and determine just why this team is not very good these days. If you have anybody you […]

    The Irony Of The Rays Striped Stirrups: George Hendrick

    Every player in the Rays starting lineup yesterday went with the new striped stirrups and high-cuffed pants look. We love the look. I mean, we reallllyyyy love it. But there is something ironic about the new look. Rays first base coach George Hendrick is often credited as the first player […]

    The GBT – The Good, The Bad and The Telling sandwich, where The Bad is nice and lean and the The Telling is ripe. Diamondbacks 2, Rays 1 THE GOOD: Wade Davis. Nice strong start from Big Dub. The 7.1 innings was his longest outing of the year and only […]

    In the Diamondbacks half of the fifth inning today, BJ Upton clearly lollygaged after a ball hit in the gap turning a double into a triple. Arizona would score two runs in the inning. In the dugout after the half-inning, Evan Longoria approached Upton and appeared to be upset by […]

     
  • Rays Get No-Hit…Again

    And for the third time in less than a year, the Rays were no-hit. This wasn’t a perfect game, but this one might have been more painful as it came from the right arm of former Ray Edwin Jackson. Jackson walked 8, hit another batter and threw a whopping 149 […]

    A wise man once said, “never f*** with a winning streak.” Ok, so the Rays winning streak is only one. But every great winning streak must start somewhere. And the end of the Rays recent three-game slide coincided with the debut of the striped stirrups. So it is great news […]

    The image below is from The Trop and represents the bobbleheads of Evan Longoria and David Price that will be given out during upcoming games. Don’t worry, the mustache on King Davis is a prankster’s addition. But the gap-teeth on Dirtbag’s is not.   OK, so Longoria does have a […]

    Here is an interview with Rafael Soriano that took place before a recent game. The interview itself is not important (it’s in Spanish), but if you forward to about the 35-second mark you will see MFIKY almost crack a smile. Almost. We’re convinced the next time he does smile, it […]
