    Joe is back with his post-game thoughts… OK, Joe’s had it. Time to call a spade a spade. Joe has zero issues about giving a guy mad kudos when it is deserved. But if someone is lauded for his good works, he should also be called out for his drawbacks. […]

    Joe is back with his post-game thoughts… “Typical Rays.” That’s what went through Joe’s mind tonight watching the Rays lose to the Mariners 2-1. Once again, great pitching is wasted by the Derek Shelton walks-are-a-jewel offensive mindset. Keyword: offensive. Good grief, the Rays offense is so hapless, it nearly takes […]

    Joe is back with his post-game thoughts… Joe has been pretty hard on Karlos Pena this year. His defensive footwork has slipped, sometimes terribly so, and oh, man, those strikeouts! As much as Karlos Pena drives Joe to drink (more), there is no question where Karlos’ heart is and it […]
