    The Hangover: A Sweet Dream Indeed

    We had a dream last night that the Rays blew a lead late (as usual) against the Blue Jays but actually rallied to score 3 in the bottom of the 9th off of one of the best closers in baseball including a game-tying 2-run home run by Delmon Young, to […]

    Toronto enters this series 1-1 having split two games in Detroit with one game postponed. The Rays were 6-12 versus the Jays. Tonight’s game is just the 5th sellout in Devil Rays history. Three of the four previous sellouts were home openers (1998, 2004, 2006). The only other sellout was […]

    Evan Longoria (left) and Reid Brignac Syracuse 2, Durham 1. What a night for Rays minor league pitchers… Jason Hammel couldn’t have been much better in his 2007 debut. He pitched 5 hitless innings allowing only 2 base runners on fielding errors. He struck out 5. Tim Corcoran followed with […]

    The Rays earned a sweep against the Yankees with a 7-6 win on a snowy night in the Bronx. One of the Yankee announcers last night mentioned that the Rays were beating the Yankees at their own game. We think it was the other way around. New York committed 3 […]

    Game 2 of the 2007 season was rained out yesterday. No makeup date has been scheduled. If the game had been played, Jonny Damon would not have been in the lineup. He is suffering from a sore calf, which caused him to be removed from Monday’s opener. In fact, now […]

    The Hangover: Jorge Cantu’s Days As A Second Baseman Appear Over

    It is cold and rainy here in New York. We will see if we get this game off in time. It is still to be determined if Jorge Cantu will ever play for the Rays again, but we can be fairly certain that he will never play second base for […]

    The Devil Rays are entering their 10th season and the first 9 haven’t been too good. Those 9 seasons included 8 last past finishes, only one season of 70+ wins, and of course, ZERO playoff appearances. The Rays are considered the most inept franchise in baseball, but how bad have […]
