    Padres 7, Devil Rays 1.JP Howell did his job. After a shaky first in which he gave up an unearned run on 1 hit and 2 walks, Howell settled down and faced only one over the minimum over the next 6 innings. Unfortunately, as soon as Gary Glover allowed the […]

    Padres 9, Devil Rays 0.That should about do it for Edwin Jackson. We have tried to defend Jackson, even though he has been as bad as Jae Seo and Casey Fossum. We wanted the other two members of The Axis of Evil out of the rotation, but not Jackson. The […]

    Devil Rays 11, Padres 4. Shhhh. *in a hushed tone* The Rays have now won 7 of 9. We are afraid to say it too loud. If other people find out, they may think it is some sort of mistake and take some of the wins back. Last night it […]

    Scranton 2, Durham 1. Wouldn’t you know it. Jae Seo sucks (you know what) with the Rays, gets designated for assignment, accepts it, makes his first start for Durham and looks like Sandy friggin’ Koufax*. Granted it was only 4 innings, but he only gave up 1 run on 1 […]

    Devil Rays 9, Marlins 4. It is all about winning series. Find a way to win 2 of 3 every time out. The win yesterday gave the Rays their second straight series win and both were highly improbable. After losing the opening game of each series with bullpen melt-downs of […]
