    Postgame Shot Of Joe: More Team Meetings Needed

    Joe is back with his postgame thoughts… Now this was the Rays team Joe and many Rays fans expected prior to the season. Power hitting, clutch hitting, and wow, what a performance by Alex Cobb. Just what the doctor ordered. Speaking of ordering, apparently there has been discontent in the […]

    Joe is back with his post-game thoughts…. Joe feels like he and other Rays fans keep getting kicked in the balls with these walk-off losses, last night a painful grand slam in Baltimore. Is this some form or cruel payback from the baseball gods? It shouldn’t be, the Rays’ lineup […]

    Joe is back with his postgame thoughts… So THAT’S what offense looks like, huh? The Rays, for the first time in recent memory, looked like a major league club out there by punking the Orioles XXX. Yes, the Rays largely did this with long balls (Kelly Johnson and Shelley Duncan) […]

    Joe is back with his postgame thoughts…. Joe’s written the last two days about how we’re all simply experiencing Rays baseball. Joe firmly expects the Rays to bounce back, but bounce back to what? A spirited late season run that has no chance of a World Series? Again today, the […]

    Joe is back with his postgame thoughts…. Yeah, Joe knows it isn’t even April 15 (close), and yes, Joe knows when he is on, Red Sux pitcher Clay Buchholz is one of the dominant pitchers in baseball. Still, this flirting with getting no-hit, if not getting no-hit, is beyond old […]

    Postgame Shot Of Joe: Tired Script Plays Out In Boston

    Joe is back with his postgame thoughts…. It’s games like today’s that make Rays fans bang their heads against the wall season after season. Yeah, it’s damn early — only 10 games in — but the script hasn’t changed outside of having the savior in Triple-A. Saturday’s 2-1 loss in chilly Boston […]

    Joe is back with his post-game thoughts…. So what if Matt Moore can’t always find the strike zone. Nobody can hit him. Behind Moore’s six-walk, one-hit frustration of the Rangers, the Rays marched to their third shutout of the season on the frozen tundra of Arlington this evening. Thankfully, Moore’s […]

    At first tonight, in the Rays’ 6-1 loss to the Rangers, Joe felt sorry for the Rays. Texas was getting Texas League bloopers to fall just beyond the leather of Rays infielders. That stinks. Then the Rangers started getting clean, no-doubter hits and it was all over. Not even Marty […]

    OK, Joe has to apologize for the too-easy-to-type headline as Rays ace and Cy Young Award winner David Price was anything but an ace or a Cy Young candidate today. He got rocked for eight runs in five innings, all earned, on 10 hits while walking three and fanning as […]

    Joe is back with his postgame thoughts…. There’s just no nitpicking when the Rays toss back-to-back shutouts from their fourth and fifth starters. Joe was certain walking away with only one run from four consecutive walks to open the home first inning — against a scared Indians rookie starter no […]
