    We predicted a few days ago that Brendan Harris would start digging into Ben Zobrist’s playing time. That is starting to look like a reality. The question is whether the Brendan Harris we are seeing is the real Brendan Harris, or if we will soon see the player that was […]

    Orioles 6, Devil Rays 4. He is only 23…he is only 23…he is only 23…102 pitches in 4 innings. 6 hits, 4 walks. Scott Kazmir actually threw 60 strikes, which is not terrible, so it is not just his lack of control. He just throws too many pitches. Some how […]

    Columbus 5, Durham 2. We admit we took a double-take when we saw the Bulls were playing Columbus. We momentarily forgot about the Columbus Clippers the former AAA affiliate of the Yankees.

    Devil Rays 6, Orioles 4. We said going into this series that the Rays needed to win two out of three. Anything less and they would be digging themselves a hole that would be difficult to get out of, both in terms of standings and psychologically. After Monday night’s debacle […]

    Weird, we always had Mother Nature pegged as a vegetarian… It’s a sad day for us here at RI. The Snorting Bull that was made famous by the movie “Bull Durham” was destroyed during a wind storm in Durham yesterday. The Bull sat atop the Blue Monster at the Durham […]
