Sorry, but the Rays have made up too damn much ground to turn back now. The Sox aren’t better — not now anyway — and the Rays are two back with 10 to go.

As the late Tug McGraw coined for the 1973 Mets, “Ya Gotta Believe.”

Why not the Rays? Why not? Joe can’t answer the question.

Oh, the irony of the bullpen and the bats pulling the Rays through the biggest game of the season after David Price took an early line drive off the chest today.

After Matt Moore delivered his wicked heat and cardiac moments yesterday, the Rays unleashed their scary pen on the Sox and walked out alive with an 8-5 win.

Cue the “What if Desmon Jennings was on the roster sooner?” calls to sports radio tomorrow. The man is electric. The Rays have the day off Monday and the Sox have two at home against the O’s.

The Sox have won two of their last 11. Good luck turning it around, fellas.

    They will turn it our way. We always believed. Rays are having our 4th winning season. See you at the Trop.

    Great game! Keep the bats going Rays. Get a good rest today and come with the OFFENSE Tuesday - please. Ramos, go away. The rest of the bullpen, nice work recently - keep it up. Maddon, please abandon the "put the guy back on the horse", mental confidence approach for the next few games.
