    Devil Rays (off day) Quick side note: You know what is great about yesterday’s off-day? At least one more day of people talking about how the Yankees are in last place tied with the Devil Rays. It is like informing a guy that his wife cheated on him with 5 […]

    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. […]

    Yesterday our performance was about as effective as Seth McClung in pretty much any role above AAA. We speculated that the Rays would have to soon decide between keeping Carlos Pena or Greg Norton on the major league roster. We did not consider that Greg Norton cannot be sent down […]

    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 […]

    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 […]

    Thursday night’s game will now be known as “The Game We Do Not Speak Of.” Carl Crawford made up for it when left fielder Josh Rabe played CC’s single into an inside-the-park home run in the Rays 4-2 win over the Twins. Scott Kazmir did his part and out-dueled the […]

    The Rays concluded spring training with an 8-3 win over the Mets at the Trop. It’s too bad that the Rays couldn’t have played the Mets on a day that Scott Kazmir started. It would have been fun to see all the Mets fans at the Trop crying. The Rays […]

    Jae Seo came back down to earth a bit allowing 5 runs in the first inning of his final spring tune up. The Rays lost to the Reds 5-4. BJ Upton had 3 hits and 2 stolen bases. That the Rays decided to send Seth McClung down to Durham doesn’t […]

    Papa Joe Maddon is going to tighten the reigns on his young team this season and is not afraid to get in a players face, just don’t expect to read about it in the paper. Team owner Stuart Sternberg is glad that none of the players Got A Delmon from […]

    One of the biggest questions entering the 2007 season is how well Akinori Iwamura will adjust to Major League pitching. Most believe that his average will drop slightly, but his power will take a big hit. What nobody has speculated on is his base stealing totals. Well, despite a career […]
