    Two years ago on Rays Index there was actually a time that we liked Aubrey Huff and he was winning games for the Rays instead of making a living hitting home runs against them. C’mon 5 More Minutes…Yes! [Rays Index] Likes(0)Dislikes(0)

    THE GOOD: Evan Longoria. The kid was the man last night going 3-6, driving in 3, including 2 on a go-ahead home run in the top of the 13th. We may have seen a different side to the Dirtbag in that 13th inning at bat. With Carlos Pena on first […]

    TOSS UP Eric Hinske or Gabe Gross? On May 11th, Cliff Floyd came off the DL and rejoined the Rays for the first time in over a month. As long as Floyd is healthy (and the Rays are playing in an AL park) he will be the Rays starting DH […]

    Herb Polson is a member of the St. Petersburg City Council. Polson is experienced with stadium proposals and feels that the other members should not rush to a decision on the Tampa Bay Rays proposal for a new stadium along the St. Pete waterfront. Of course that hasn’t stopped Herb […]
