    Postgame Shot Of Joe: David Price Is Human

    Well, it was a bummer of a game. The way David Price has been pitching of late, five runs is a winner. But Price was more like Scotty Kazmir than his usual Price self. Hey, the guy’s human, as are the Rays. Five-game win streak snapped. Joe will take five […]

    Joe realizes this kind of winning can’t last forever, just like the 1-8 start wasn’t going to last. Yet still, both streaks by the Rays felt unstoppable. And that’s really the fun and addiction of every baseball season, except it never happens all in April. Enjoy it. Jeff Niemann seemed to have some of […]

    Postgame Shot Of Joe: Another Laugher In The Cold

    Hey, with a .239 batting average after today’s clobbering of the Twins, the Rays aren’t even the worst hitting team in the American League anymore. Not even cold weather can keep these bats down. ZORILLA! (Awfully fun to type.) A franchise-record eight RBIs for Zorilla, 19 hits, a good confidence boost […]

  • Which Executive Emailed Buster Olney Worried About Rays’ Trading Rep?

    April 26, 2011 at 3:42 pm 13 comments

    Buster Olney recently wrote that other teams now “warily approach trades” with the Rays because they are viewed as a “savvy organization” and seem to know just when to dump their players (e.g. Scott Kazmir). This raised our eyebrows because the Rays have also given away some solid players with little to […]
