    For those of you that are regular visitors to this site know that we very rarely complain about having to eat McDonald’s Hamburgers every night, while our counterparts are eating Steak.

    And this is why Tim Corcoran, despite his impressive numbers, is a longshot to make the rotation in 2007. When he has his best stuff, he will give the team 5 or 6 good innings. At some point in the 5th or 6th inning, things will start to unravel. And […]

    We love the quote on this page. “The reason the Yankees never lay an egg is because they don’t operate on chicken feed.” Yep. It must be rough when your $13 million right fielder (Gary Sheffield) gets hurt and all you have to do is go out and get another […]

    You may question some of his managerial decisions…you may hate his glasses…you may wish he would actually argue a call for once…you may just think he is a horrible field general…but you have to give credit to Joe Maddon for comparing David Ortiz and Manny Ramirez to Ruth and Gehrig […]

    There has been a noticeable lack of minor league coverage on this site considering two of the Rays’ affiliates are in the playoffs. This obviously annoyed Mitch Talbot and Evan Longoria. On Saturday night, the two of them got together and realized that being up 2 games to none in […]

    We vaguely remember that there was an incident involving Delmon Young earlier this season when he was playing in Durham. It seems that with every at bat, our ability to recall that visual becomes harder and harder. Young has been as advertised…Even better than we thought he would be. We […]

    First of all, let us say that we have nothing against DRays Bay. We are always eager to support other Rays fans, and we read their site regularly. However, we need to take them to task for their most recent post, “Why the Hate for Rocco?”. In the article, they […]

    The Rays finally beat the Twinkies last night 4-2. Geez, it seems like it has been over two years since we took a game from Minnesota. Oh wait. Carlos Silva was cruising with 6 shutout innings, but had to be removed before the 7th due to stomach cramps. He had […]
