    Devil Rays 4, Rangers 3. Bubble Boy goes down with another hamstring injury. In the first inning Rocco Baldelli pulled up with a sore hamstring running to first base and had to be removed from the game. Is it us or is Rocco starting to look an awful lot like […]

    Yesterday our performance was about as effective as Seth McClung in pretty much any role above AAA. We speculated that the Rays would have to soon decide between keeping Carlos Pena or Greg Norton on the major league roster. We did not consider that Greg Norton cannot be sent down […]

    Durham 3, Richmond 1. Andy Sonnanstine is going to make it very difficult for the Rays to ignore him. He is the only starting pitcher at Durham that is not on the 40-man roster, but so far in 2007 he is making the rest of the IL look like…well like […]

    Devil Rays 2, Blue Jays 1. We are not going to get fooled in to thinking that Jae Seo is suddenly worthy of a spot in the rotation. This is what he does. He is just good enough, just often enough, that his teams keep believing that he is just […]

    It has been a rough week in the Devil Rays universe and what the Rays really need is a rainout to clear their heads. Well, the Rogers Center in Toronto has a roof so we are raining out today’s posts and hoping for a bit of transference. But we still […]

    Orioles 1, Devil Rays 0.Ok, we have ignored this post long enough. Quite frankly (I hate when I quote Steven A.) we we weren’t sure if we would be able to write a “Hangover” today. Last night hurt on so many levels. Let’s count them: For the second time this […]
