Joe is back with his postgame thoughts…
Well, there goes the win-streak, snapped at six games. On the bright side, the Rays had a six-game win streak which pushed the Rays over .500 for the season.
Can’t win them all, but that’s not what Joe is upset about. Cy Young Award-winner and (until this season) the team’s ace had tightness in his triceps. Not good.
On the Rays’ TV postgame show, the rights holder tried to put a happy face on the injury claiming Price was pulled as a precautionary move. We’ll see.
It has been the season of nightmares for Price. First he’s just plain bad, with little fastball. Then he gets into a shouting (cursing?) match with a plate ump. Then he has allergies causing blurry vision (!). Now, his arm may be hurt.
Sadly, the Rays bullpen reverted to its early-season self and melted down in the 9-2 loss to the Blowsux.
What will Merlot Joe do now, have a monkey and an organ grinder in the clubhouse before tomorrow’s game?
