    Postgame Shot Of Joe: Red Sux Fans Horrible People

    Why, Joe is so giddy over the Rays beating the Chowdahheads tonight, Joe’s pulling his Rays jersey out of his boxers as he types. So much to like about this game. Where does Joe start? Was it the turn-back-the-clock pitching of James “Big Game” Shields? Was it Carlos Pena’s homer? […]

    Bad calls, stupid mistakes and unaggressive hitting aside, the Rays didn’t beat themselves 3-1 on Friday, the Sox stuck it to them. Joe hates those kinds of losses. It sucks to have to admit when you just weren’t as good, especially with ace David Price on the mound. What drove […]

    The Rays today announced they signed Brad Hawpe to a minor league deal. The 2009 All-Star with the Rockies will report to single-A Charlotte for a few days until rosters expand on Sept. 1. Technically, a player must be on the 25-man roster on August 31 in order to be […]

    The Rays Confidence Graph is a look at how much confidence Rays fans have in the Tampa Bay Rays. The graph is designed to give us a look at how our emotional bias as Rays fans fluctuates through time. The “confidence” in the team is an inexact measure of how […]

    The Charlotte Stone Crabs just keep cranking out videos. Our only complaint is that they did not get a video into production with Rocco Baldelli. But we’re nitpicking. You can find more here. [Charlotte Stone Crabs] Likes(0)Dislikes(0)

    The getaway game was as ugly as it gets. Jeff Niemann pitched like Joe thought Wade Davis would have last night, and the Rays were toast in the third inning. Then, like dangling ice cream in front of a dieting sorority chick, the Rays served up Andy Sonnanstine as dessert […]
