    Joe is back with his post-game thoughts…. Raise your hand if you thought the Rays would hit the road and win consecutive series in Balitmore, Los Angeles and Oakland. If you just spilled beer on your head, you’re a liar. The timely hitting remains suspect and subpar. There’s still little, […]

    The GBT – The Good, The Bad and The Telling sandwich, where The Bad is nice and lean and the The Telling is ripe. Indians 3, RAYS 2 (boxscore) THE GOOD: Help Is On The Way. Matt Joyce sent out a tweet last night saying he would be back in […]

    Joe is back with his postgame thoughts…. Just a torturous night of baseball in the 3-2 loss to the Indians. More than 3 1/2 hours of torture. It’s the same old tired story, tonight punctuated by Jose Molina giving another lazy effort behind the plate and gifting a key passed ball. […]

    Joe is back with his post-game thoughts… 1-for-42. Yup, 1-for-42. Wolverine can finally celebrate. Whether he got hold of a slumpbuster in Cleveland or just finally returned to being a major league hitter, Wolverine broke his Rays-record, near major league-record of consecutive plate appearances without a hit. His baseball hell ended in a […]

    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 […]
