    Maddon’s Move May Signal Lack Of Faith In Shelton

    In an unusual move, Joe Maddon changed his cap and transformed into a hitting instructor as he worked with Carlos Pena in the batting cage prior to yesterday’s game (via Bill Chastain)… “We just turned back the clock to 1987,” Maddon said. “We turned back the clock in the batting […]

    So the Rays failed to clinch a playoff berth? Joe’s not worried. It’s not if, but when. But that Derek Shelton special, a three-hit shutout loss to the putrid Orioles, quickly took a backseat to the grousing of Rays players that the Fruitdome was not packed to the catwalks by […]

    [Update] David Price gave one of those half-hearted apologies. You know the kind that usually starts, “if what I did bothered you, then…” If I offended anyone I apologize I did not think it was gonna turn into this… We’re not sure what kind of reaction Price was expecting after […]

    Well, The Rays Attendance Problems Could Be Worse

    The Rays may *only* average 23,000 fans per game, but at least they don’t have to resort to fake fans. That is what one Italian soccer team has done recently… For the first time in four years, nearly every seat in the “Colaussi” stand, which runs along one side of […]

    It pains us to write this post. But we feel compelled to point out that Pat Burrell now has 17 home runs in 90 games with the Giants. That would project to about 31 home runs over a full season. He has also posted a .370 OBP and an .880 […]

    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: Rays Clinch Tie. Sure we would have rather seen the Yankees lose putting the Rays closer to a division title. But no matter who lost, […]

    Now we know why Joe Maddon was wearing a plaid cap during the postgame press-conference Friday night (right). Those bRAYsers that everybody loved? Leave it to the Rays to take it to the next level. They will now be sporting bRAYser-styled caps during batting practice and pre-game warm-ups. And of […]
