    One year ago on Rays Index we told exactly how bad Shawn Bleepin’ Camp had been for the Rays (It is amazing how similar IRS and IBS are). We always loved writing about Camp, as it gave us a chance to use one of our all-time favorite tags. We Knew […]

    [THE HANGOVER] Rays Finish Tough Road Trip 3-3

    THE GOOD: If you would have offered us 3-3 on a tough two-city road trip, we would have signed for that. So, despite yesterday’s awful performance, the Rays are still playing well. Being 2 back in the division is more of an indication of how well the Sox are playing […]

    This week’s cover of the Sports Illustrated (via The Heater*) features a comic book-style rendering of a super hero-like Carl Crawford holding a frail and frightened Derek Jeter above his head with one arm while Bizarro Superman looks on in anguish. The cover is in reference to an SI story […]

    THE GOOD: Scott Kazmir was able to keep his pitch count in check and worked 7 strong innings. In fact, outside of a 20 pitch 7th inning, Kid K was only at 77 pitches after 6 innings. For comparison, Kazmir was 4th in all baseball last season with 3,609 pitches […]

    It’s Tuesday so it is time to update the Tampa Bay Rays Power Rankings. These rankings are a combination of overall importance to the team and a general “who’s hot and who’s not”, mixed with how we currently feel about and perceive each member of the team. It is by […]

    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)
