    Postgame Shot Of Joe: No Miracle From Myers

    Joe is back with his postgame thoughts…. A way-too-soft throw to a cutoff man and looking like a minor leaguer at the plate highlighted savior right fielder Will Myers’ heralded debut this afternoon/evening in Boston. Joe is so tempted to blast the kid for swinging at the first pitch after […]

    Joe is back with his postgame thoughts… Wow. Wade Davis. It just figures a bottom of the rotation guy/long relief hurler formerly with the Rays would shut down his old teammates to give the Royals a series win over the reeling Rays. At one point, Davis had retired 13 of […]

    Joe is back with his postgame thoughts… Vince Lombardi once famously spoke of how winning isn’t everything; it’s the only thing.” Joe agrees. It is why games are played. Even so, with a 5-3 win over the Royals, it’s hard to get giddy over a win when it may be […]

    Joe is back with his postgame thoughts. … The Rays and Hellboy got pasted 10-1 by the Royals tonight before an alleged Rays crowd of 11K and change, and Joe’s going to nearly pretend it didn’t happen. The beer will go down easier that way. But there was one small […]

    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 […]

    Postgame Shot Of Joe: What’s Wrong With Matt Moore?

    Joe is back with his postgame thoughts… One cool thing about this season, prior to June, was the dominance of the new Rays’ ace, Matt Moore. In his past two games, Moore looked more Scotty Kazmir than David Price. Is Matt Moore hiding something? His velocity is down. So too […]

    Joe is back with his postgame thoughts… Rare is it that Joe cannot quibble with a Rays win. This is one of those times. Strong pitching, good hitting, outstanding flashes of defense, specifically by Dirtbag and Kelly Johnson, made this as about as a complete win as Joe can remember […]

    Joe is back with his postgame thoughts…. Please let tonight’s stellar 2-1 win against the Orioles mark the spiritual end of the heinous Roberto Hernandez experience and the start of the Chris Archer era, which should have been rocking two months ago. Archer was superb — seven innings, 84 pitches, […]

    Joe is back with his postgame thoughts… This is the tightrope the Rays will walk for the remainder of the year. If they are to make a run at a postseason shot, staff ace Matt Moore pretty much has to run the table. For possibly the first time this season, […]

    Joe is back with this postgame thoughts… Where has this been all year? Man, Roberto Hernandez had a dynamite game. The Rays starter, who largely has stunk so far this year and seemed on the verge of packing his bags to Durham, N.C., had a dominant game in a 3-1 […]
