    Joe is back with his post-game thoughts…. Joe really had to struggle to bring himself to the keyboard after the Rays took a broom up the butt from the Royals today. The Royals! Maybe rock bottom, yet still at 40-35, is a good place for the Rays to be. Maybe […]

    Joe is back with his post-game thoughts…. Perhaps the most disturbing realization out of this heinous 5-3 Rays loss is that Baltimore looks like it won’t be taking its rightful place at the bottom of the AL East this season.
