Joe watched Ben Zobrist’s seeing-eye, bloop double, all those Jays errors, and Brett Lawrie’s almost justifyable temper tantrum, and Joe couldn’t help but sit back and contemplate after the Rays’ 4-3 win that destiny really is on Tampa Bay’s side this season.
And for this latest victory we got to soak in another big night for Will Rhymes, Elliot Johnson and old man Crooked Cap.
It has to make you laugh.
Every fan knows the long list of injuries and surprises associated with the 2012 roster. The Rays being on pace to win 101 games is nothing short of stunning considering its schedule.
Joe was glad to see David Price bounce back with a strong outing and another W. He needed the confidence jolt.
The hot and hated Red Sux come to the Trop tonight. Joe gets the feeling they don’t realize what they’re running into.
