    Joe is back with his postgame thoughts…. The table was set perfectly for Matt Moore to pull a Humpty Dumpty and fall to pieces en route to his first loss of the season against the hated Red Sox tonight. But Moore wouldn’t play along. David Ortiz clobbering a three-run homer […]

    Joe is back with his postgame thoughts… The Rays, who struggle with offense more than Joe does trying to find a keyhole after a Saturday night bender, are built largely on pitching and defense. This formula has worked in the past and if the Rays play October baseball again this […]

    Joe is back with his postgame thoughts … Forget about crazy Alex Cobb having one of the wackiest outings in baseball history tonight. Forget about the bullpen looking like the 2012 edition — again. For this night, Joe’s got to acknowledge what Evan Longoria continues to do at the plate. […]

    Joe is back with his postgame thoughts…  Well, with the much-anticipated, rare match-up of reigning Cy Young Award winners, it wasn’t exactly Sandy Koufax vs. Bob Gibson, but David Price gutted his way through for a strong start over R.A. Dickey in a 10-inning win. Thankfully, Merlot Joe let David […]

    Joe is back with his postgame thoughts… Boy oh boy did the Rays need this. No, it wasn’t a boatload of offense (thought Kelly Johnson and James Loney did bring the sticks). No, it wasn’t starting pitcher (Matt Moore did that). It was a bullpen. Finally. Moore pitched strong. But […]

    Joe is back with his postgame thoughts… Man, with the purported pitching excellence of the Rays, one would think seven runs in the first inning would lock up a win. Nope. In fact, is it too early to suggest the Rays’ pitching is just a tad overrated? David Price is […]

    Joe is back with his postgame thoughts… Well, that 8-3 Rays win sure feels good, huh? You know what else feels good? It seems Rays ace David Price may have turned the corner. He didn’t have the greatest of starts but for a few innings in the middle of the […]

    Joe is back with his postgame thoughts… Rays ace (?) David Price pitched pretty well tonight. For eight innings. His ninth inning, eh. Price didn’t start the ninth inning well, got yanked for World Baseball Classic Fernando Rodney, who not only couldn’t hold the runners, he allowed two runs, one of which […]

    Joe is back with his postgame thoughts…. Matt Moore winning and dominating in his first four starts is really the stuff Rays fans rightly fantasized about this offseason. Moore had the big late-season/playoff splash in 2011, struggled through a decent rookie campaign last year, and now he’s on fire. But […]

    Joe is back with his postgame thoughts…. Joe suspects Skipper Maddon’s pregame DJ Fresh silliness had nothing to do with the Rays’ lifeless bats tonight, and Joe’s going to go out on a limb and say DJ’s choice of music was not Jeremy Hellickson’s hometown Iowa groove of choice. So, […]
