    THE GOOD: Evan Longoria made yet another great defensive play in the first inning. These plays seem to happen on a daily basis now and Dirtbag probably should be the favorite to win Rookie of the Year based on his defense alone…After the 5th inning, the Rays trailed 5-4. It […]

    One year ago on Rays Index we showed you what you already knew, that Jae Seo was one of the worst pitchers in baseball even though Gary Shelton of the St. Pete Times was telling the fans to be patient. Jae Seo Reaffirms His Position As Worst Pitcher In Baseball […]

    THE GOOD: Edwin Jackson. 112 pitches, 73 strikes. His 112th pitch was 97 mph. One pitch in the 8th registered 99 (although we are skeptical) and he was consistently 95+ in the 8th inning. No runs. 6 hits, no walks 1 walk. Great game, even if the Jays bailed him […]

    There are a lot of things to be embarrassed about as a Rays fan (Rainbow Warriors unis, The Hit Parade, 9 last place finishes in 10 seasons, Dick Vitale). But the one that has always bothered us more than the others is the retirement of Wade Boggs’ number 12. When […]

    THE GOOD: The Red Sox lost…The Yankees lost…The Orioles lost…So the only team that the Rays lost ground to last yesterday was the Jays. Oh and the O’s are now in their rightful place, last place… THE BAD: Shaun Marcum faced the minimum through the first 6.2 innings. The only […]
