They say baseball teams take on the personality of their manager, which means Joe Maddon needs to see a psychiatrist immediately or needs to be blessed for his legitimate one-game-at-a-time, absolute-faith approach.
Who the hell knows what the hell is going on with this version of Rays madness.
Drive fans insane with dreadful hitting but stellar pitching, then win seven straight out of nowhere, then have your bats die instantly with miserable losses including getting on the wrong end of a 1-0 perfect game, and then bounce back with a 7-0 shutout in Anaheim this morning.
Joe’s just happy that the Rays did right by David Price again. Price had total command and is now 16-4 with eight starts remaining.
Bossman, Dirtbag and Zorilla hit bombs, and life is good. Karlos Pena got back on pace for 200 whiffs, as well. There’s nothing normal about this team.
