    The GBT – The Good, The Bad and The Telling sandwich, where The Bad is nice and lean and the The Telling is ripe. RAYS 4, Yankees 1 (boxscore) THE GOOD: Jeff Niemann. Niemann’s best start of the season came at a great time, ending a 3-game skid by the […]

    The GBT – The Good, The Bad and The Telling sandwich, where The Bad is nice and lean and the The Telling is ripe. Yankees 5, RAYS 3 (boxscore) THE GOOD: Ben Zobrist. With no Desmond Jennings, Zobrist batted leadoff and delivered 2 hits and 2 walks, including a triple […]

    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 […]

    Joe is back with his post-game thoughts…. Don’t expect master string-puller Joe Maddon to do anything differently than what he already does. Wise men might say he shouldn’t. But even in victory, even with an 18-8 record, this Joe has to at least put something somewhat contrary out there. Hopefully, maybe, Maddon files away Jake McGee’s perfect 2 […]

    Joe is back with his post-game thoughts…. Well, you knew Jeff Keppinger at cleanup was going to get exposed at some point, and his 0-for-5 protecting Evan Longoria qualified today. What a dump of a 7-2 loss in the rubber game at Detroit. Joe never thought he’d be yearning for the […]

    Rays Opening Day Lineup Leaves A Lot To Be Desired

    We all know the Rays will have good pitching. We also know the Rays have a few very good bats. But with BJ Upton on the DL, and a left-hander on the mound for tomorrow’s opening day, the lineup will leave cause you to shake your head. Whatever the opposite […]

    The GBT – The Good, The Bad and The Telling sandwich, where The Bad is nice and lean and the The Telling is ripe. RAYS 4, Yankees 0 (boxscore) THE GOOD: Stephen Vogt. He probably won’t make the opening day roster, but considering he can play several positions, including catcher, […]

    The Rays added the extra bat they were looking for tonight when they signed Jeff Keppinger to a one-year deal (via Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com). The agreement is a major league contract, so it would seem that Elliot Johnson’s chances of making the team just took a big hit. Keppinger […]
