    The GBT – The Good, The Bad and The Telling sandwich, where The Bad is nice and lean and the The Telling is ripe. RAYS 8, Orioles 4 (boxscore) THE GOOD: Matt Moore. It’s an old story, but it is an important one. Moore still can’t keep his fastball down […]

    Joe is back with his post-game thoughts… For the first three innings, it seemed like a broken record, that the Rays couldn’t get a hit if they had a fistful of C-notes in a house of ill repute. The Rays tied a season-high in the Fruitdome by scoring eight runs […]

    Joe is back with his post-game thoughts… Given the punchless Rays offense is in a desperate need of Viagra, Joe got to thinking: Is the Rays minor league development really that good? Oh, sure, the Rays develop pitchers better than any team in the major leagues.  Everyone working for the […]

    The GBT – The Good, The Bad and The Telling sandwich, where The Bad is nice and lean and the The Telling is ripe. RAYS 5, Orioles 0 (boxscore) THE GOOD: David Price. The King is dominating. Price has completed at least 7 innings in 6 straight starts and last […]

    Joe is back with his post-game thoughts…. Isn’t it amazing how good the Rays can look with a few clutch hits? Taking nothing away from David Price’s fourth straight stud start, but damn it was good to see lively bats again. And against a left-handed pitcher no less. Plating runs shouldn’t be as hard […]

    We are starting to learn more about the fallout from Ken “Hawk” Harrelson’s on-air, anti-umpire rant (VIDEO CAN BE SEEN HERE). And it sounds like the folks in the league’s office aren’t too happy with Hawk (via ESPN Chicago)… “I talked to Bud Selig yesterday,” Harrelson told ESPNChicago.com’s Bruce Levine […]
