Joe feels like he and other Rays fans keep getting kicked in the balls with these walk-off losses, last night a painful grand slam in Baltimore.
Is this some form or cruel payback from the baseball gods? It shouldn’t be, the Rays’ lineup and watching Matt Joyce play the outfield should be enough torture.
Last night, it was four solo shots from the good guys in the 10-6 loss. Bad luck, or Rays baseball? Regardless, the baserunners weren’t there to cash in and the Rays paid dearly.
Winless David Price pressed on with his bad season, and again Fernando Rodney was absent (see Tuesday) in a critical spot.
Rodney on his ass in key spots makes zero sense, and Joe’s confident there’s a problem. If that’s not fixed, you can go ahead and bury your postseason hopes.
