Joe might need another beer so he can sleep. What an incredible series win over the Rangers.
The Rangers never lost a series this season… until tonight. David Price pitched well, but as always had a lot of pitches. Sooner or later this Scott Kazmir-like habit is going to fry the bullpen.
The Rays ganged up on Derek Holland early when he was struggling. Joe loved the aggressive hitting (is the Ballpark at Arlington the new Polo Grounds? Seemed like the Rays had three homers that were just warning track shots.).
How charmed were the Rays tonight? They not only got out of a rare jam that Crooked Cap found himself in, they also overcame a major baserunning error by Dirtbag, who seems to have his head into wearing diapers and hanging with his Playmate girlfriend rather than his job.
(No, if Bossman missed a bunt sign, then why did Zorilla not run on the play from first base? There was no bunt sign. Hard to believe Zorilla would miss that as well.)
Yes, if we are going to kill Bossman for his many mistakes, then why should be look the other way when Dirtbag is having a rough season away from the plate?
Still, Joe is really, really pumped with the win. If this keeps up, the Rays will treat us to something very special this season.
