It’s all feelin’ real good about now. Luke Strangebeard is swinging a sweet stick with those fast hands of his. The other big guns are hot, and it doesn’t really matter if Reid Brignac still can’t hit or Jake Magee looked like a nervous lamb before a slaughter.
(Picked off third, Brignac, really, after a pickoff move to first and a play at second that saw your teammate in safely?)
There’s definitely plenty of nitpicking in order with this 2-0 record behind un-Rayslike pitching. But who wants to be a buzzkill on a Saturday night? The only thing worth bitching about is the theft of Evan Longoria’s opposite field home run. That was conclusive evidence? Please.
Two sold-out crowds and two Yankees beatdowns, tonight 8-6, might even leave a guy dreaming that the Rays could see a real bump in attendance this year and St. Pete could start competing with Tampa to house the good guys for the next 30 years.
Dust off the brooms.
