Playing A Little Pepper

Luke Scott went 1-4 in his rehab assignment game last night…Yunel Escobar is still ay-to-day, which makes me wonder if the Rays should really call these injuries “week-to-week”…Last night’s 19 hits were the most by the Rays since June, 2011 when they also had 19 hits against the Astros. The Rays’ batting average as a team jumped from .229 to .240 last night…James Loney has raised his average from .167 to .379 in the last 11 games. He has 17 hits over that span…Over the last 12 days, no team has hit more home runs than the Rays (23)…Matt Moore is just the 6th pitcher under the age of 24 to go 5-0 in April…The Rays will face James Shields on Tuesday in Kansas City.

    Out of 48 AL qualifying starters here are the Rays Starters in terms of run support versus ERA

    #13 Moore 5.40 RS - 1.13 ERA
    #22 Cobb 4.25 RS - 1.82 ERA
    #24 Hernandez 4.00 RS – 5.28 ERA
    #35 Helli 3.40 RS - 4.31 ERA
    #44 Price 2.80 RS - 5.52 ERA

    So we are helping the guys that don’t need much help and going cold on the guys that are struggling. That’s a big part of why we have a losing record. I was thinking about this last night when we were piling on runs. Price could use some today. Axelrod is only averaging barely over 5 innings per start. We should be able to score runs today. Hopefully.

      Well Price has a 5+ ERA, you hoping the Rays score 6+ Runs for Price to Win one..and 6+runs for noname to win anymore than 1.....your hoping for a lot there Sat. night...

  2. Dave L says:

    Correct. I wanted the Rays to win. You wanted the Rays to lose.

    Sorry Troll-boy you were disappointed. We won and you lost.
