    The GBT – The Good, The Bad and The Telling sandwich, where The Bad is nice and lean and the The Telling is ripe. RAYS (boxscore) THE GOOD: Bullpen Depth. You gotta like where the bullpen is right now. With the return of Joel Peralta and Kyle Farnsworth, the ‘pen […]

    The GBT – The Good, The Bad and The Telling sandwich, where The Bad is nice and lean and the The Telling is ripe. Royals 8, RAYS 0 (boxscore) THE GOOD: Alex Cobb. The Rays had a depleted bullpen so it was sink or swim with Alex Cobb last night. […]

    The GBT – The Good, The Bad and The Telling sandwich, where The Bad is nice and lean and the The Telling is ripe. RAYS 3, Marlins 0 (boxscore) THE GOOD: Alex Cobb. Serious question: Does Jeff Niemann automatically re-enter the rotation when he comes back from the DL? Is […]

    Joe is back with his post-game thoughts…. Joe’s first reaction to today’s 3-0 stifling of the Marlins is one of appreciation: at least it wasn’t that colossal snoozer of a five-hour, 15-inning debacle the Rays turned in last night/this morning. Will Rhymes’ absolute gem of a glove-scoop-shovel throw to first base […]

    Joe is back with his post-game thoughts…. Tuesday’s 11-2 loss to the Mets was sort of the epitome of bad baseball, with the Rays kicking off the mess with some horrendous first-inning defense that didn’t show up in the box score. Nothing should make anyone yearn for Reid Brignac, but […]

    Joe is back with his post-game thoughts…. Joe Maddon is a master at staying positive in the face of anything. So in that tradition, this Joe will say tonight’s 4-1 beat down at the hands of the Yankees at least came with silver linings of Alex Cobb performing admirably and Desmond Jennings getting a couple of […]

    The GBT – The Good, The Bad and The Telling sandwich, where The Bad is nice and lean and the The Telling is ripe. White Sox 4, RAYS 3 (boxscore) THE GOOD: Carlos Pena. We guess Pena is going to remain in the leadoff spot until Desmond Jennings returns late […]

    Joe is back with his post-game thoughts…. There’s nothing more sickening than getting swept at home, and while the Rays were on the wrong end of just that to the White Sox, culminating in today’s 4-3 loss, this week’s burial was especially painful. The Rays were 14-for-95 at the plate […]

    Joe is back with his post-game thoughts…. Joe just felt so damn good for Alex Cobb coming back and pitching brilliantly today to lead the Rays to a 5-2 spanking of the Braves. The doctors carved open Cobb’s chest last year to untwist a giant vein that was all messed up and […]

    The GBT – The Good, The Bad and The Telling sandwich, where The Bad is nice and lean and the The Telling is ripe. Braves 5, RAYS 3 (boxscore) THE GOOD: Luke Scott. One night after leaving 8 men on base and getting intentionally beaned with a pitch, Wolverine exacted […]
