Even the legions of Rays pessimists have to feel a little hope that Desmond Jennings might make things interesting down the stretch. After repeated debacles, Jennings and his underlings came out today and spotted the A’s a five-run lead before punching them in the mouth with a 10-8 win.
So nice to see Jennings take a ball to right field with confidence. He almost looks like the most professional hitter on the roster after Johnny Damon.
The Rays are freaking destined to drive Joe crazy. Just when reason says they’ve effectively quit and their lack of talent has caught up with them, they crank out an inspiring game like today’s.
Logic says they’re done. But so little about this team makes any sense.
