    Postgame Shot Of Joe: Taking The O’s Lunch Money

    Now this is what a playoff team should look like. Joe is popping a cold adult beverage he’s so happy. There were a lot of things to like watching the Rays pound the dreadful Orioles, and not just Todd Kalas shoveling popcorn in his grill. * The rebirth of Wade […]

    This was a particularly disappointing Rays loss for Joe. This was the type of game the Rays needed to stomp on the Yankmees and say, in so many words, “You have to go through us to win the division.” Instead, the Yankmees slapped the Rays aside as if to say, […]

    The bats are alive. The Yankees looked average. Joe’s blood pressure is way down. The contrast between Jeff Neimann and James Shields today was so glaring in their back-to-back starts against the Yankees. It was on Joe’s mind all game. Shields, who’s easily got 80 or 90 career starts on […]

    At least the Rays can rest easily knowing they didn’t give their best yet still pushed the Yankees to walk-off heroics. Sean Rodriguez was home with a wet-vac (one of the most pathetic absences in baseball history). Rafael Soriano never took his jacket off with the game tied and on […]

    Whew. Joe is popping open a cold adult beverage on this late Sunday afternoon celebrating a win that had Joe disturbed for much of the game’s final innings. Happy as hell that Jason Bartlett, who may be an unfair target of some disgruntled Rays fans, got the game-winning hit. He […]

    Have the baseball gods spoken? Almost makes a Rays fan think so after tonight’s 4-0 win over the Tribe. It makes Joe wonder. For the past few days, if not weeks, Rays fans were giddy with the growing rumors the Rays were working on a deal to bring the team […]

    Mourn the loss of Cliff Lee? Or mourn the continued decline of James Shields? Joe’s wearing black tonight. Shields came into Friday night’s game against Cleveland at the FruitDome and made his now trademark longball mistakes, got unacceptably rattled by a balk call and continued his march toward a five-run […]

    Joe’s completely forgotten about hell June. This is way too much fun. The crappy Indians rolled into the FruitDome tonight, and Wade Davis looked like a legitimate fifth starter on a contender, Carl Crawford channeled Dave Kingman, and John Jaso danced on the basepaths like Vince Coleman. Rays 5, Indians […]
