    Red Sox 3, Devil Rays 0.Well, you saw that one coming. Not only did the Rays not get to their hotel until 6:30 in the morning, but Red Sox fans are so desperate these days that one panicked member of Pink Sox Nation felt that the Scarlett Ho’s needed help […]

    The Hangover: Jason Hammel Pitching Himself Out Of The 2008 Rotation

    Rangers 9, Devil Rays 1. Jason Hammel deserved a few starts worth of buffer from criticism as he adjusted back to being a starting pitcher. After making 13 starts in Durham, Hammel was called up to the Rays and inserted into the bullpen. At first it appeared as though he […]

    Devil Rays 4, Tiggers 0. We have a favorite saying around these parts. Baseball is about three things…Pitching, pitching, pitching. We can’t emphasize it enough. It is amazing how good a team can look when they get good pitching. After losing their previous three games and last eight road games, […]

    Devil Rays 7, Tiggers 1. Dioner Navarro was 3-5 last night to raise his average above .200 for the first time (.201) since May 15. He also hit his 4th home in the last three weeks, after only hitting one in the first three and a half months. Once considered […]

    Devil Rays (off day)The schedule makers must have seen this past weekend coming and mercifully gave the Rays and their dwindling fans base a much needed day off. DEVIL RAYS WEBTOPIA… BJ Upton and Robinson Cano were selected as AL co-players of the week. Upton hit .414 with 2 home […]

    Devil Rays 7, Angels 2. BJ Upton got off to a great start this season, hitting .365 the first month. In April and early May he was knocking the ball all over the place…but there was a catch. He was striking out at an enormous rate. While nobody expected Upton […]

    Yankees 7, Devil Rays 6. The Devil Rays lost three of four games to the Yankees, but for the first time in almost a month, the Rays were competitive. The starting pitching was better, but they still don’t put in enough time on the mound. And the bullpen is…well the […]

    The Devil Rays open the second half with a four-game set against the New York Yankees at Tropicana Field. In baseball, momentum is only as good tomorrow’s starting pitcher which doesn’t usually bode too well for the Rays, but this series is huge for both Tampa Bay and New York. […]

    Royals 12, Devil Rays 4. 5 innings, 100 pitches. When we look back on the 2007 season, that could be the opening line. 5 innings, 100 pitches. The rest of the rotation (outside of James Shields) has been awful, but that was no surprise. The bullpen has been vomit-inducing, but […]
