    We’ve got a sparkly Miss Florida, flying baseballs, and lots of great defense. We’ve got the highlights you won’t see on SportsCenter… [imagebrowser id=88]

    The GBT – The Good, The Bad and The Telling sandwich, where The Bad is nice and lean and the The Telling is ripe. RAYS 5, Nationals 4 (boxscore) THE GOOD: Carlos Pena. It’s like Pena realized he can’t keep waiting around for Evan Longoria to come back and protect […]

     
  • Elliot Johnson And BJ Upton Sing Usher At ‘Rays On The Runway’

    Last week the Rays’ wives hosted the annual “Rays on the Runway” fashion show. If you haven’t seen Kyra Hallett’s pictures, go THIS POST. Well, somebody gave Designated Character Elliot Johnson the microphone and silliness ensued. Here are a couple of videos. The first is from the good folks at […]

    Joe is back with his post-game thoughts…. Tuesday’s 11-2 loss to the Mets was sort of the epitome of bad baseball, with the Rays kicking off the mess with some horrendous first-inning defense that didn’t show up in the box score. Nothing should make anyone yearn for Reid Brignac, but […]

    Joe is back with his post-game thoughts…. Forget about the stunning Rays win tonight for half a second, what a treat it was to hear Rays fans coming through the TV extra loud and clear in Miami. It’s great to be on the other end of that home-game humiliation for a change. Back to the […]

    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 […]

    Maybe the biggest surprise of the 2012 season so far is just how well Elliot Johnson is playing. Prior to the season, Johnson wasn’t even a lock to be on the roster and was out of minor league options. Now, with a slew of injuries, Johnson has started 10 of […]

    Joe is back with his post-game thoughts…. Joe watched Ben Zobrist’s seeing-eye, bloop double, all those Jays errors, and Brett Lawrie’s almost justifyable temper tantrum, and Joe couldn’t help but sit back and contemplate after the Rays’ 4-3 win that destiny really is on Tampa Bay’s side this season. And for this […]

    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. The Orioles sort of out-Rayed the Rays tonight, befuddling them with […]

    The Greatest Slide In The History Of Baseball Slides

    Honestly, this one is far more entertaining than the slide by Kelly Shoppach earlier this season on his first career stolen base. What puts Elliot Johnson over the top is the look on his face after he slides past the plate. That is the look of a man that is […]
