    Benjamin Franklin said that the definition of insanity is “doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.” Today we introduce exhibit #1 that Joe Maddon and the Devil Rays front office are insane… If we don’t come back after the break better in the bullpen, we’re not.

    White Sox 5, Devil Rays 4.Surprise: The top four hitters in the Rays lineup went a combined 0-12, so it was not a surprise the Rays couldn’t score past the 4th inning. Not a surprise: A member of the middle relief struggle mightily. Casey Fossum faced 4 batters and allowed […]

    Devil Rays 10, D-Backs 2. Last night was as frustrating as a 10-2 win can ever be. Edwin Jackson pitched 4.2 innings before being removed from the game for precautionary reasons.

    Devil Rays 7, Rockies 4.Remember back in the off-season when the only position we were worried about was who would fill the enormous shoes of Travis Lee? Elijah Dukes took his first base mitt to the Arizona Fall League. Jonny Gomes borrowed a glove for about 3 hours early in […]

    Devil Rays 11, Padres 4. Shhhh. *in a hushed tone* The Rays have now won 7 of 9. We are afraid to say it too loud. If other people find out, they may think it is some sort of mistake and take some of the wins back. Last night it […]
