    Don’t be surprised if the Postgame Cup Of Joe nearly merges with The Hangover. Such is life when the Rays play on the left coast. Of course Joe stayed up for the game! But had to hit the sack right after. Real life (work) calls. Joe can sum up this […]

    Leave it to the big dogs to get the Rays a win, a series win split, which is not easy to come by in Oakland, the first Rays series win in the land of Raiderfan since 2008. Gee, what happened that year? Matt Garza, the Rays No. 1 pitcher of […]

    Joe got the DVR going for this one and it’s now a pretty crappy Saturday morning. Funny how the A’s have looked a lot like the Rays in this series – opportunistic, winning with hustle and defense. (13K on a Friday night out there? Sheesh.) Joe’s just got a bad feeling […]

    Damn what a sad loss. The Rays had the win slip through their fingers, specifically Dan Wheeler’s fingers. [Full disclosure: Joe watched the game from The Venue with a Duke grad student, a classy, shapely, wine-drinking chick named Barbara-Ann. Yes, Joe was way out of his league. Joe's a shot-and-a-beer, […]

    Games 2 and 3 of this Rangers sweep really didn’t surprise Joe. As Joe wrote Monday, the brilliance and grit of rallying to beat Cliff Lee was sure to put the Rays on an incredible high rivaled only by Matt Garza’s no-hitter. What was so impressive is how the Rays are […]

    Postgame Shot Of Joe: With Offense, Rays Scary

    Man, this is starting to be scary stuff. Scary good. Joe is trying to temper his excitement but it’s hard to when you consider the Rays throttled the American League West-leading Rangers. Consider the Rays banged out 15 hits. No, that’s not a typo. The Rays had 15 hits and crossed […]

    After giving the Rays a standing ovation for the sheer focus and will to win tonight against Cliff Lee, Joe had to offer up a personal curtain call to Jason Bartlett. Bartlett’s extreme hustle from first base to beat the throw to second off a Carl Crawford routine grounder to […]

    Joe has been as critical as the next guy over the Rays’ lack of offense. The Rays didn’t exactly light up the scoreboard today, either. Know what, it doesn’t matter when Hellboy is on the mound. Hellboy, the moniker Twitterverse seems to have deemed the Rays’ young stud pitcher Jeremy Hellickson […]

    The Bad News Bears theme churned through Joe’s head after the first inning like it used to when Shawn Camp and Casey Fossum took to the mound for the good guys in 2007. Sean Rodriguez cued up the music trying to get two when he should have gone for one. […]

    Stop Joe if you heard this before: * James “No Game” Shields gives up a long ball (damned near two). * The Rays offense is slightly less productive than Father Dungy’s putrid offense with the Bucs. * With runners in scoring position, the Rays wilt like an ice cream cone […]
