    Postgame Shot Of Joe: Garza Channels Shields

    September 8, 2010 at 11:23 pm 7 comments

    Well, that was special, wasn’t it? Matt Garza channels his inner James “No Game” Shields and starts coughing up bombs to the Red Sux, blowing a four-run lead. Joe’s trying to put this in the past. Of course, Gazra is not perfect and if he is to have a mulligan, […]

    Postgame Shot Of Joe: Clubbing The Red Sux

    Joe will sleep quite soundly tonight. Why? Well, nothing brings Joe more joy to see the Rays positively seal club the Red Sux. How cool was it to see Carl Crawford belt three doubles in four innings? Zorilla homers. Mullet-growing Dirtbag homers. Red Sux killer Dan Johnson homers. Bossman homers. […]

    It’s official. Dan Wheeler and Chad Qualls suck. It’s because of those two stiffs the Rays lost today and failed to pick up a game on the Yankmees, who lost to Toronto. Ever the slave to pitch counts, it backfired on Merlot Joe today. Look, it wasn’t as if Wade […]

    Joe wonders what Joe Maddon had to say to bitter Matt Garza after giving him the hook in the sixth inning after 98 pitches, one run and pretty darn good command. Is this what the postseason will look like? Or will Maddon give his playoff starters more rope? Forgive Joe […]

    Color Joe disturbed. Man, everything seemed to be going so well in this game, especially Red Sux killer Dan Johnson — seemingly forgetting he wasn’t playing Boston — doubled to deep center, giving the Rays a 3-1 lead. Sure, starter Jeff Niemann struggled a little bit in the previous inning […]

    Postgame Shot Of Joe: Fun Watching Wade Davis Deal

    Damn, what a fun game this Rays win was tonight. The coolest thing about the win? Wade Davis pitched like he did earlier in the year. His seven-inning, six-hit no walk perforance — and quick work no less – really put a smile on Joe’s face as if someone bought […]

    Why, Joe is so giddy over the Rays beating the Chowdahheads tonight, Joe’s pulling his Rays jersey out of his boxers as he types. So much to like about this game. Where does Joe start? Was it the turn-back-the-clock pitching of James “Big Game” Shields? Was it Carlos Pena’s homer? […]

    Bad calls, stupid mistakes and unaggressive hitting aside, the Rays didn’t beat themselves 3-1 on Friday, the Sox stuck it to them. Joe hates those kinds of losses. It sucks to have to admit when you just weren’t as good, especially with ace David Price on the mound. What drove […]

    The getaway game was as ugly as it gets. Jeff Niemann pitched like Joe thought Wade Davis would have last night, and the Rays were toast in the third inning. Then, like dangling ice cream in front of a dieting sorority chick, the Rays served up Andy Sonnanstine as dessert […]

    Postgame Shot Of Joe: Giving Thanks For Dirtbag

    Joe’s not above taking pause to give thanks for the baseball gods placing Evan Longoria on his team. There was a lot of talk earlier this season about leadership on the Rays in the face of B.J. Upton’s post-jogfest dugout tirade, when Dirtbag got up in Bossman’s face. At this point, Joe […]
