    The Hangover: Rays No Longer Seeking Bullpen Help

    While many major league teams wear special green hats and/or uniforms on St. Patrick’s Day, the Rays actually chose to wear less green, going with a white cap with green bill (Another image is below). The players also wore their pants just below the knees in a welcomed old-school fashion. […]

    The Hangover: What Was The Rays Bullpen Thinking?

    The bullpen forgot to blow the win last night. Akinori Iwamura felt a lot better after the game after driving in a run with just his second hit of the Spring. However, we wince at the idea that it was a “game-winning” RBI. The Rays won by five and it […]

    We are a few weeks, two intra-squad games and fourteen official games (only one win) into Spring Training. Let’s take another look at our 2007 25-man roster projections. Over the course of the next month we will update these projections once or twice a week. A couple of notes on […]

    Jae Seo looked strong with four shutout innings of 1-hit ball in the Rays loss. Seth McClung’s hopes for claiming the closer’s role took a big hit allowing five runs in one inning. The offense? Two hits! Both came in the seventh inning. Everyone in the organization has been saying […]

    The Great B. J. Upton Debate

    B. J. “Don’t call me Melvin” Upton is a big story for the Rays this Spring and the Worldwide Leader is starting to pick up on it. Papa Joe Maddon is giving Upton a shot to make the team as a “super-utility” player. He would not have a regular position, […]

    Moral victory last night. The Rays were losing the entire game so the ‘pen did not blow the lead. We never gave Brian Stokes much of a chance to win the fifth spot in the rotation and…what? We had Stokes in the rotation’s 5th spot earlier this week? Never happened. […]

    The Hangover: The Devil Rays Only Love It When It Rains

    Another loss. Want a good reason to hate the Trop? Based on the Spring results so far (1 win came during rain-shortened game) and the inept bullpen, the Rays will go 162-0 if every game were to be shortened due to rain. Maybe they can force a leak in the […]

    Apparently the Rays have regressed to the point that a pitcher allowing two hits and a walk in one inning of work is “solid“. And the hits losses just keep on comin’. Those fiesty Tiggers…they just don’t know when it is just an exhibition. For the second time in two […]

    The Tampa Bay Devil Rays just announced a new business partnership with AlphaTrade. As part of the agreement, fans will be able to send text messages that will appear on the Rays new scoreboard this season. We have been unable to confirm whether the Rays have also hired the ESPN […]
