    Padres 9, Devil Rays 0.That should about do it for Edwin Jackson. We have tried to defend Jackson, even though he has been as bad as Jae Seo and Casey Fossum. We wanted the other two members of The Axis of Evil out of the rotation, but not Jackson. The […]

    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 […]

    Blue Jays 12, Devil Rays 11. It hurts. real bad. But it would hurt a lot worse if we were surprised. Is there anybody out there that didn’t think, with Al Reyes unavailable, that this bullpen was capable of blowing a 5 run lead? Bullpens are supposed to put out […]

    Devil Rays 5, Tigers 3. James Shields proved last night that if he wants a W, he just going to have to go out and do it himself. Shields had not won since a May 3rd victory over the Twins. That’s a span of 4 starts including a start in […]

    Devil Rays 11, Rangers 8.Last night’s win marked the first time since August 23 of last season that the Rays have won 3 straight. That 3 game streak also came at the hands of Rangers at the Trop when Tampa Bay won the the first 3 of a 4-game set. […]

    Nate Silver of Baseball Prospectus and SI.com recently released his list of “Baseball’s Top 50 MVPs.” In concept, the UFD (Ultimate Fantasy Draft) is pretty simple: If you were starting a baseball team from scratch, which players would you want to build your team around?

    Devil Rays 4, Rangers 3. Bubble Boy goes down with another hamstring injury. In the first inning Rocco Baldelli pulled up with a sore hamstring running to first base and had to be removed from the game. Is it us or is Rocco starting to look an awful lot like […]

    Devil Rays 2, Blue Jays 1. We are not going to get fooled in to thinking that Jae Seo is suddenly worthy of a spot in the rotation. This is what he does. He is just good enough, just often enough, that his teams keep believing that he is just […]

    A’s 5, Devil Rays 3. After winning three of the previous four series, the Rays came back to earth a little by dropping the rubber match with the A’s. The good news is, that despite throwing both Casey Fossum and Edwin Jackson in the series, the Rays only allowed 12 […]
