    The Hangover: A Comedy Of Errors

    May 2, 2007 at 10:00 am 1 comment

    Twins 9, Devil Rays 1.Sometimes it is so bad you can’t help but laugh at your own team’s ineptitude. None of the Twins first 5 runs scored on a hit (2 on errors, 2 on ground outs and 1 on a sac fly). You know it is bad when you […]

    The Hangover: All Hail The King, Al Reyes

    May 1, 2007 at 10:30 am 0 comments

    Al Reyes is 5 years older and has 4 years more experience than any other member of the 2007 Tampa Bay Devil Rays. After a second Tommy John surgery and missing most of 2006, nobody knew what to expect from King Reyes in 2007. So far his performance has been […]

    You may have noticed a slight change in format. We run three daily features around these parts. Of course, by daily, we mean if we don’t drink too much the night before and are able to get our buts out of bed in a reasonable manner. Well, we are going […]

    Angels 9, Devil Rays 1. Don’t blame us. We said we wouldn’t be surprised if the Rays lost 10-1….We are never apologists for starting pitchers. We hate it when somebody says a pitcher threw a great game but just “made a couple of mistakes.” It is the biggest gop-out in […]

    The Return Of Jorge Cantu: Iwamura to DL

    Jorge Cantu is back. Akinori Iwamura was placed on the DL today with a strained oblique muscle and Cantu was recalled from Durham to take his place. Honestly we are a bit surprised that Cantu was the choice, although there really isn’t a lot of offensive talent at Durham right […]

    Devil Rays 10, Yankees 8.We love winnin’…it’s like better than losin’. The 2007 incarnation of the Tampa Bay Devil Rays are going to be the death of us. The Rays beat the Yankees and in the process were involved in their 612th straight game decided by 2 runs or less. […]

    Indians 6, Devil Rays 4.It is hard to get too upset when the worst is expected and the worst happens. The “highly potent” Rays offense was only able to manage 5 hits and once again the bullpen blew a lead. With Al Reyes unavailable after pitching in the first two […]

    The Hangover: Edwin Jackson Not Strong In Loss

    Indians 4, Devil Rays 3.The headline reads “Jackson strong in loss”. What? When a starting pitcher walks 5 batters, that is not a strong performance. Yes, we know that 2 of those walks were intentional, but 3 walks in 6 innings is still not “strong”. When a pitcher has to […]

    “stomach-punch” game. Carl Crawford hit a double in the 9It’s funny but sad. Losing a lead in the 8th or 9th inning should be the worst way to lose a game. The Devil Rays bullpen blows so many leads late in games, that when they do, it is never very […]

    The Hangover: A Sweet Dream Indeed

    We had a dream last night that the Rays blew a lead late (as usual) against the Blue Jays but actually rallied to score 3 in the bottom of the 9th off of one of the best closers in baseball including a game-tying 2-run home run by Delmon Young, to […]
