    Rangers 7, Devil Rays 4.Remember that 2-game winning streak and series-split in Detroit? Seems like a distant memory after last night’s loss and knowing that Edwin Jackson is on the mound tonight. DEVIL RAYS WEBTOPIA… Andy Sonnanstine is learning that what worked in the minors is not necessarily going to […]

    Angels 3, Devil Rays 0.Despite being “small” for a right-hander and despite not being blessed with a plus-fastball, Andy Sonnanstine breezed through the minors with amazing numbers. His status grew to almost legendary proportions among Devil Rays fans who had never even seen him pitch. For a team that always […]

    Devil Rays (off day)The Devil Rays made an interesting and unexpected move yesterday. With two openings in the bullpen, the Rays recalled Jason Hammel from Durham.

    Devil Rays 9, Marlins 4. It is all about winning series. Find a way to win 2 of 3 every time out. The win yesterday gave the Rays their second straight series win and both were highly improbable. After losing the opening game of each series with bullpen melt-downs of […]

    Devil Rays 5, Royals 1. Let’s see if we can make it three for three… On two previous occasions we have been critical of headlines found on devilrays.com. On both occasions, the title of the article was subsequently changed. On the first occasion, the title was factually wrong and on […]

    Royals 4, Devil Rays 1. Only the Rays could throw up a stinker and make Brian Bannister look like Johan Santana. The Devil Rays finally made changes to the rotation that we all have patiently waited for. OK, maybe we weren’t very patient at times. Jae Seo has been designated […]
