    Joe raises a mug of Folgers Brazilian this morning to Rays slugger Carl Crawford. If there was still any chatter that the Rays should trade Crawford in the next few weeks, the Rays slugging left fielder all but put that to rest last night. Sure, the Rays pitching was solid. […]

    If Joe didn’t have to get up at 5 a.m. for that nasty four-letter word called “work,” he’d be raising an adult beverage to toast the Rays 3-2 win over the Red Sux Tuesday at the Fruitdome. Trust Joe, he’s happy, but concerned. Once again the Rays showed they have […]

    Interesting nugget of information from Marc Topkin prior to the Rays game Tuesday with the Red Sux. Speaking on the Rays Radio Network, Topkin, a Rays beat writer for the St. Petersburg Times, was asked about the rumors of embattled Rays centerfielder B.J. Upton being swapped to Seattle for southpaw […]

    Our old friend Peter Gammons reported a short while ago (via Twitter) that the Rays and Mariners could be discussing a deal that would include BJ Upton and Cliff Lee… Rumblings around St. Pete ballpark was a BJ Upton-Cliff Lee deal. 3-way? OK. Let’s ignore for a second that shock […]

    Bigger Rays All-Star Snub: Soriano Or Zobrist?

    Since it was announced that Evan Longoria, Carl Crawford and David Price would represent the Rays in the 2010 All-Star game next week, many have cited Rafael Soriano as one of the bigger snubs in the American League. It is hard to argue with his 21 saves (in 22 opportunities, […]

    BJ Upton was not in the starting lineup last night. That marks the fifth time in the last seven days somebody else was in center field to start the game. And while some, including us, have wondered aloud if Upton should still be starting versus righties, Upton himself, is still […]

    A true playoff atmosphere was confirmed last night when the stunning D-cup 20-year-old sitting in front of Joe delivered him a big hug after the final out and “daddy” alongside her didn’t mind. Ahh, the thrill of victory. Joe can never get enough hugs from buxom women, or enough of […]

    The GBT – The Good, The Bad and The Telling sandwich, where The Bad is nice and lean and the The Telling is ripe. THE GOOD: John Jaso. Recently, any time the Rays would get the bases loaded with no outs, our initial reaction has been “oh crap.” But JJ […]

    Here is an interview from Spring Training of last year that we just stumbled upon. We have no idea who is doing the interview, but we are certainly impressed by Jaso’s ability to keep the drool in his mouth… And here is the same young lady interviewing Carlos Pena.
