    Joe is back with his postgame thoughts…. The greatest pitching X-factor entering this season was Matt Moore, and there’s no question his stellar performance tonight in the 4-0 victory against the Indians should do more to soothe Rays fans than a passionate half hour with sideline princess Kelly Nash. Moore […]

    Yeah, it’s easy to bag on the umpires for a truly rotten call in the ninth, somehow hallucinating that Dirtbag passed up Zorilla on the basepaths, but damn, if Dirtbag’s near-homer off the wall in center was just a few inches longer, we may still be playing. Neither episode sticks […]

    Joe is back with his postgame thoughts…. Somwhere, James Shields was jealous of David Price’s run support today — and the defense at the FruitDome was pretty damn sparkling, too. James Loney, Evan Longoria and Sam Fuld were nothing less than spectacular. But it was a crappy opening day for the […]

    Joe is back with his postgame thoughts…. Joe’s got a knot in his stomach tonight after watching Evan Longoria play a truly savage third base and wondering what could have been this season. The Rays are dominant right now in all phases of the game. And seeing Longoria playing the […]

    Joe is back with his postgame thoughts…. Only four more to go to complete the miracle! You knew it was a special day when B.J. Upton slaps a key RBI single the other way. The Rays got the job done early and often in Chicago this afternoon, making All-Star starter Chris […]

    Joe is back with his postgame thoughts…. Of all the accolades deserved by the Rays tonight in Chicago, Joe must bow to the Rays defense for the 3-2 win. It started on the opening White Sox at bat, with B.J. Upton getting on his horse and making an over-the-shoulder catch look […]

    Joe is back with his postgame thoughts…. Hey, the Rays have 10 games left and they’re only 3 1/2 behind the A’s with Oakland still with seven remaining against mighty Texas. This is going to be easy. … At least easier than anyone thought on Wednesday night. The hitting revival now stands […]

    Joe is back with his postgame thoughts…. Men of faith still believe in the 2012 Rays. Who else could? And these men of faith were rewarded tonight with a six-run, walk-off ninth inning, one that saw Joe Maddon successfully pinch hit with career-hitless Stephen Vogt in a critical spot. Then […]

    Joe is back with his postgame thoughts…. The common “and-what-if-they-make-it” chatter died down considerably while the Rays were sizzling through much of August, but now Joe’s back to that same line of thinking after today’s bats-challenged 5-3 loss to the Yankees. Even if the Rays battle back over these final […]

    Joe is back with his postgame thoughts…. Joe needs one of those Joe Maddonesque pep talks about now. Beer’s not going to be enough to kill the pain tonight. You know the talk, the kind of Maddonspeak that will keep the Rays from getting emotionally spent after today’s brutal 3-2 […]
