    Joe is back with his post-game thoughts…. Every good Rays fan knows the predictably unpredictable Rays were primed for an 11-0 romp tonight after getting clobbered and swept by the Mets the past few nights. But far more important than the rather enjoyable torture Tampa Bay forces fans to endure was […]

    The GBT – The Good, The Bad and The Telling sandwich, where The Bad is nice and lean and the The Telling is ripe. Mets 9, RAYS 6 (boxscore) THE GOOD: Ben Zobrist. Let’s assume Evan Longoria comes back and hits well right away. And let’s say Hideki Matsui continues […]

    The GBT – The Good, The Bad and The Telling sandwich, where The Bad is nice and lean and the The Telling is ripe. Mets 9, RAYS 1 (boxscore) THE GOOD: Knuckleballs. Knuckleballs are to your wrist what sliders are to your elbow. That is why it is so rare […]

    The GBT – The Good, The Bad and The Telling sandwich, where The Bad is nice and lean and the The Telling is ripe. Mets 11, RAYS 2 (boxscore) THE GOOD: Getting On. We’re digging deep for something positive to say about last night’s game. So there is this. The […]

    Joe is back with his post-game thoughts…. Despite Ben Zobrist’s best effort to let the Marlins back in the game with two eighth-inning errors that didn’t show up in the box score, the Rays’ bullpen put the broom down Miami for a glorious 4-2 win today. (Karlos Pena escaped a major […]

    Joe is back with his post-game thoughts…. Forget about the stunning Rays win tonight for half a second, what a treat it was to hear Rays fans coming through the TV extra loud and clear in Miami. It’s great to be on the other end of that home-game humiliation for a change. Back to the […]

    The GBT – The Good, The Bad and The Telling sandwich, where The Bad is nice and lean and the The Telling is ripe. RAYS 7, Yankees 3 (boxscore) THE GOOD: David Price vs Alex Rodriguez. Price only worked 5 innings. But part of that was due to an incredible […]

    Joe is back with his post-game thoughts…. It’s hard not to overreact when you see the Rays fail in all phases of the game. Aside from getting blanked 7-0 by the hated Yankees tonight, the Rays inched closer to the AL lead in errors, the deep, deep batting slump continued, and Joe’s probably […]

     
  • Hawk Harrelson Lost His Mind After A White Sox Pitcher Was Ejected [VIDEO]

    After AJ Pierzynski  spiked Ben Zobrist earlier in the series, Alex Cobb exacted a bit of revenge when he hit Piehead with a pitch early in today’s game. All even? Apparently not. The White Sox then threw behind Zobrist and Jose Quintana was ejected (notice Pierzynski doesn’t even move his […]

    Joe is back with his post-game thoughts…. Joe watched Ben Zobrist’s seeing-eye, bloop double, all those Jays errors, and Brett Lawrie’s almost justifyable temper tantrum, and Joe couldn’t help but sit back and contemplate after the Rays’ 4-3 win that destiny really is on Tampa Bay’s side this season. And for this […]
