    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: Matt Garza. The Garza Complex threw the first no-hitter in franchise history. It took him 120 pitches (101 fastballs) and he faced the minimum […]

    Before Monday’s no-hitter, Matt Garza and James Shields were fighting it out to become the first Rays starter to grab a 5.0 ERA. But unlike with Shields, Joe and every other Rays fan knew that at some point Garza and his great stuff would get hot. Well, now he’s hot — in […]

    Should The Rays Go Monochrome?

    The images above are from THIS POST over at Uniwatch in which they examine monochrome possibilities for various teams. Call us crazy, but we kinda like the all-navy blue look on the right. Reminds us of the style used by the Cubs for a few years in the early part […]

    If the Rays decide they need a new arm in the bullpen, they may not have to buy a relief pitcher on the trade market. They could choose to seek reinforcements on the Durham roster. Specifically, the Rays could turn to RJ Swindle as a dominating lefty specialist… The Rays […]

    Rays Could Turn To Hellickson For Bullpen Help

    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: Wade Davis. Big Dub picked up his 3rd straight win and worked into the 7th inning for the 3rd straight start. He struggled early, […]
