    Joe is back with his post-game thoughts… Now Joe is not going to be some slug of a fan — you know, like a Chowd — who would crucify Crooked Cap Fernando Rodney for blowing what would have and should have been a wonderful Rays win over the jerks from […]

    Typical Rays. They have taken something that was cool and somehow made it even better. Now, after each save, as Fernando Rodney is doing his “Shoot the Moon” celebration, several teammates will turn and “look” at what Rodney is shooting. The first time we saw it was during the Mariners […]

    For the most part, Joe Maddon is a happy-go-lucky type of guy. That is until you attack one of his own. Then we see a darker, more vengeful side of Maddon. When asked about the pitch that hit Luke Scott at the end of tonight’s game, Maddon insinuated that the […]

    Things got ugly at the end of game one of this series with the Red Sox, as Luke Scott (finally) got hit after three previous pitches just missed him. There was a lot of pushing and shoving and no punches were thrown. But clearly the blood is boiling and this […]

    Joe is back with his post-game thoughts…. The evoloution of baseball that’s taken chin music out of the game and developed a few generations of pitchers who don’t keep hitters off the plate absolutely stinks. Joe’s all in favor of bringing back the brushback pitch and those related old school unwritten […]
