    Some neat things are happening down on the farm. Again, we will summarize everything next week, but a quick note that can’t wait…Last night, trailing 4-1 in the 9th, the Durham Bulls drew 3 straight walks to load the bases. Melvin Emanuel Upton (also known as B.J.) hit the first […]

    Starting next week we plan to start a weekly post covering the D-Rays minor league system. However, Wednesday night’s Visalia Oaks game could not wait until next week to be mentioned. The team tied a California League record by hitting 8 home runs in a 17-15 victory over the Bakersfield […]

    As of this morning, the Rays still had not replaced the injured Aubrey Huff. It looks like that replacement will come in the form of Sean Burroughs. Burroughs began the season on the DL, but could be activated as soon as today. Judging by Dewon Brazelton’s history in a Rays […]

    We must admit we were a bit worried this past off-season when Rays Management traded former first round pick Dewon Brazelton for another first round underachiever, Sean Burroughs.

    Hey Mr. Gomes…Up Your Nose With A Rubber Hose!

    We have to admit. We are beginning to fall in love with Jonny Gomes. Maybe its because he plays the game with so much emotion. Maybe it is because one of these days he is going to actually hit the cover off the ball, a la Roy Hobbs in The […]

    Apparently this is going to become a regular feature on Rays Index. At first we joked about the curse when Julio Lugo and Luis Ordaz went down on opening day. Then we began to wonder when Jorge Cantu was injured. Then we started to get scared when Mark Hendrickson went […]
