    Simmons And Kornheiser Compare 2010 Rays To 1997 Marlins

    September 23, 2010 at 8:30 am 43 comments

    Yesterday we worried that Stuart Sternberg’s comments about the 2011 payroll would lead to unfair comparisons to the 1997 Marlins, a team that won the World Series and then completely gutted their roster. The 1998 Marlins lost 108 games. Big League Stew thought we were overreacting (us? overreact? never!). Well, […]

    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: Carl Crawford. While it looked like CC was pressing against the Yankees last week, he finally had a typical all-around great game in a big game. […]

    Ah, if it wasn’t so late, Joe would be raising a glass of an adult beverage. Sadly, 5 a.m. comes awful early. Leave it to the pride of the corn, Hellboy, to rescue the Rays pitching woes. Dude was money. Good control. Great to watch. Glad to see the Rays […]

    The Rays still have two games head-to-head with the Yankees and hold the tie-breaker should the two teams finish tied at the standings. But that didn’t stop ESPN.com from declaring the race over with a piece titled, “And that’s the AL East race, folks“… Nothing more to see here. Move […]

    The Rays opened the season with a $72 million payroll. Back in March, Stuart Sternberg announced that the 2011 payroll would be less than $60 million. And now, two weeks prior to the playoffs, Sternberg said the payroll is going down no matter what the Rays do in the playoffs… […]

    So James “No Game” Shields gives up five runs to start the damned game. Guess what the Rays lost by tonight folks? Yup, you guessed it. What exactly has happened to a once proud starting pitching staff? Joe has called out Derek Shelton for his unclutch, walks-are-better-than-hits, strikeouts-aren’t-so-bad approach to […]
