Joe is back with his postgame thoughts…
Joe is still having acid reflux over Merlot Joe giving away that extra-inning game Monday night to the BlowSux. So Joe got a virtual purple pill Tuesday night when the Rays slapped around the BlowSux.
The Rays needed the bad Roberto Hernandez to come through after the pitching staff was taxed the previous inning, and not just by eating innings. But by getting on top of the BlowSux. For the most part, the bad Roberto Hernandez did just that.
Joe really believes the X-factor for a successful Rays season is Desmond Jennings who really isn’t lighting things up, with the exception of Tuesday. If Jennings can raise that batting average to about .300 thereby getting on base more, it will sure make things easier for guys like James Loney, Dirtbag and Zorilla.
The Rays have played terribly against the BlowSux this year. Getting another win Wednesday for a series win would really help turn things around.
