Playing A Little Pepper

The Rays willThe Rays scored 6 runs last night, their highest total in 9 games. During the intervening 8-game stretch in which they went 1-7, the Rays averaged just 1.8 runs per game…A win tonight would give the Rays just their second series win of the season. They are 1-3 so far…The Rays are on pace for just 521 runs scored. The Seattle Mariners were last in the AL in scoring in 2012. They scored 619 runs…When watching David Price tonight, watch how he does against right-handed batters. So far this season they are hitting .358 off Price. In his career, prior to this season, that number was just .239.

    Cork - you sure you have this lineup correct? It's the same as last night's.

  2. Dave L says:

    Alright you heard it here first. My Cubano hermano Yunel will begin to right the ship tonite.

    Gets on base 3 times and anchors the defense. Like I said you can't bat .100 forever.......

      Yeouch on that call. What a miserable team.

      • Dave L says:


        I stayed awake long enough to see Escobar get on base twice.

        How many times has he done that this year?

        Thankfully I missed the ending.

    OK "ACE" Price about time to put up or forget that Best Pitcher in Baseball dream you had, try to move to the Head of YOUR TEAM

    Good teams do not lose like they have been losing. This is not a good team.
