    Rays fans about now fall into two categories: 1) Happy as all get out that the team is playing .600 ball and in great shape in mid-August 2) Missing wads of hair because Joe Maddon drives them insane and the inconsistency of the team smells like a playoff collapse in the making. […]

    Watching this Rays win for Joe was like eating a huge plate of home-cooked pasta with steaming, hot garlic bread and chocolate cake for desert. It was a feel good win. While Rays fans had every right to have a hemorrhoid flare up over Jeff Niemann and Wade Davis being […]

    Well, thanks to Dirtbag, the Rays avoided being no-hit by Bob Gibson Sunday. Oh, that wasn’t Bob Gibson? Morrow is the guy’s name? Wow, Joe never knew Ken Morrow could pitch. Dude was a helluva hockey player for the Islanders. Guess a great athlete can also be a good player […]

    Joe Maddon hates when his players don’t give their all, yet it’s apparently good baseball for him to wave the white flag in the seventh inning down seven runs on a day when balls are flying out of the ballpark in record numbers. Is there any explanation why Merlot Joe chose to strike […]

    Boy, this game started out with some promise. The first two hits were consecutive doubles in the first by SRod and Willie Aybar. Joe was pumped! And then… um, did someone forget to pay the power bill? From then on, that team in the road grays looked anemic. Three hits […]

    It’s hard for Joe to get all depressed and worked up over this extra-innings loss to the Twins the way the Rays have been playing so well in this homestand. Still, only scratching out one run on five hits in 13 innings is a bit troubling despite Merlot Joe (finally) […]

    So the kid from the corn, Jeremy Hellickson, wasn’t so bad, was he? Geez, how deep is the Rays starting pitching? The rotation gets a night off when a rookie gets a spot, one-time start, and he shuts down the Twins. Mind you, this is not the Kansas City Royals. […]

    Maybe Matt Garza’s no-hitter just raised the pitching bar so high for James Shields that he’s willing himself to reach it. Joe swears that no-hitter changed this team. Maybe Shields just missed his nickname. Whatever the reason that has led to Shields’ great command, Joe’s loving it. Take your nickname […]

    Strange goings on. Decent starting pitching. Awful result. That’s pretty much what Joe feels after watching the Yankmees beat the Rays tonight. It wasn’t like Matt Garza was horrible. He only gave up five hits. Any other night, that’s damn fine pitching. Problem was they were all extra-base hits! If […]
