Damn. For a while it seemed like the Rays would really rally. David Price had one of his worst starts of the season, yet the Rays only trailed by two.
Red Sux starter Clay Buchholz had to leave in the fifth with a bum back. This was too good to be true. It smelled like a comeback and seemed a near-sure thing when the Magic of Kotch homered to right for a 3-2 score.
Even after Goggles gave up a homer, the Rays had the tying run on base only to see SRod look terrible against Papeldouche.
It was a miracle the Rays were still in the game since Price pitched so poorly — for his standards, though it was sweet to see Kevin Pukeukilis get drilled by Price.
But the Rays offense is a bad joke, even if the Legend of Sam Fuld came up with some offense of his own for a change. The Rays simply aren’t going to go anywhere with this impotent offense. Rays pitchers can only do so much.
For each game the Rays tank at the plate, it’s one game closer to see a firesale, hopefully for some bats.
Oh, and Joe will help pay for Derek Shelton’s moving expenses.
