    Sun Sports Gives Us The Shot Of Fernando Rodney We Have All Been Waiting For

    Finally! It is the overhead shot of Fernando Rodney as he is “Shooting the Moon.” And not only that, but the Sun Sports camera is in such good position that it is as if Honey Badger is shooting the camera. Unfortunately we can’t catch every post-game show, which is unfortunate […]

    The GBT – The Good, The Bad and The Telling sandwich, where The Bad is nice and lean and the The Telling is ripe. White Sox 4, RAYS 3 (boxscore) THE GOOD: Carlos Pena. We guess Pena is going to remain in the leadoff spot until Desmond Jennings returns late […]

    Typical Rays. They have taken something that was cool and somehow made it even better. Now, after each save, as Fernando Rodney is doing his “Shoot the Moon” celebration, several teammates will turn and “look” at what Rodney is shooting. The first time we saw it was during the Mariners […]

    We’ll get to the daily screencap recap in a little bit. But in the meantime, this happened after the game. We saw these helmets on Fernando Rodney and Joel Peralta the night before, but they actually belong to Carlos Pena and Luke Scott. So when it was time to do […]

    The GBT – The Good, The Bad and The Telling sandwich, where The Bad is nice and lean and the The Telling is ripe. RAYS 8, Jays 5 (boxscore) THE GOOD: Carlos Pena. Pena was hitting just .116 with 1 HR in the last 20 games, so Joe Maddon wanted […]

    Postgame Shot Of Joe: 14 Hits Covers A Mess

    Joe is back with his post-game thoughts…. What a great Rays win — minus the Bad News Bears imitation, another heinous bunt and the routine Matt Moore implosion. But 14 glorious hits will save you nearly every time. This one was an 8-5 triumph against the Jays. Joe Maddon’s magic fix-it routine batting Karlos Pena leadoff paid […]

    Joe is back with his post-game thoughts…. It’s amazing what can happen when a lefty swings the bat with the game on the line in Yankee Stadium. What a concept!! Take note, Carlos Pena. The beer is glorious right now after Matt Joyce walloped a three-run bomb in the ninth […]

    Joe is back with his post-game thoughts…. Carlos Pena ending the game on the third called strike of his at bat with the bases loaded was just too much to bear. Swing the damn bat and stop complaining about close pitches. But who could be surprised? Lack of aggression was sort […]

    Not much of a backstory here except the picture comes from Evan Longoria (via Marc Topkin) with an apology to “Señor Pena.” Not gonna lie. It looks like Longo farted…. Likes(0)Dislikes(0)

    The GBT – The Good, The Bad and The Telling sandwich, where The Bad is nice and lean and the The Telling is ripe. RAYS 7, Yankees 6 (boxscore) THE GOOD: Carlos Pena is home. Of course there was the grand slam. And there was the walk-off single in the […]
