Joe is back with his postgame thoughts…
Well, with the much-anticipated, rare match-up of reigning Cy Young Award winners, it wasn’t exactly Sandy Koufax vs. Bob Gibson, but David Price gutted his way through for a strong start over R.A. Dickey in a 10-inning win.
Thankfully, Merlot Joe let David Price out there, not yanking him when the 100-pitch bell rang for no other good reason other than to torment fans with Jake McGee.
Funny. The Rays have won consecutive games and McGee has never walked near the mound. Can you imagine?
As horrible as this four-game series with the Jays started off, it sure ended nicely with a split.
