    Devil Rays 3, Blue Jays 2.Earlier this year we witnessed stretches of good offense and even a stretch or two of decent pitching (we are yet to see decent fielding). We wondered aloud on many occasions how good this team could be if both the hitting and pitching clicked at […]

    Devil Rays 5, Blue Jays 4.PLAYING A LIL’ PEPPER WITH LAST NIGHT’S GAME… My alma mater played a rare night game last night, so I was otherwise preoccupied and did not watch most of the game. Somehow I managed to avoid seeing the final score all night. I got to […]

    Blue Jays 7, Devil Rays 2.Just the links today DEVIL RAYS WEBTOPIA… When we first read the headline “Reports: Rays’ Maddon to get extension” we thought “why would the Rays extend Maddon’s contract when they could just pick up the two-year option on the existing contract?” Then we remembered that […]

    Devil Rays 9, Orioles 7.Could the Tampa Bay Devil Rays actually avoid last place for only the second time in their ten year existence? With last night’s come-from-behind victory over the Orioles, the Rays have moved within 3 games of Baltimore for 4th place in the AL East. And while […]

    Devil Rays 5, Orioles 4.Don’t the Devil Rays know they are not supposed to win games like have recently? Don’t they know they are not supposed to come from behind to win a game? Don’t they know they are supposed to lose a game in extra-innings after teasing us by […]

    Devil Rays 15, Orioles 8. Just the links today DEVIL RAYS WEBTOPIA… The Rays elimination number in the division remains 3, and is 10 for the wild card. With 30 games remaining, the Rays need 11 wins to avoid another 100-loss season. They have a 5-game lead over the White […]

    White Sox 5, Devil Rays 4.Ahhh…the nostalgia. For a brief momen there it was like we were watching pre-All-Star break Edwin Jackson, all over again. We should thank Edwin for reminding us that he is still Edwin Jackson and we are still Devil Rays fans. It should come as no […]

    Devil Rays 4, Indians 3 (12 innings). PLAYING A LIL’ PEPPER WITH THE RAYS (random thoughts on yesterday’s game)…Joel Guzman hits singles? When did that start happening? How many people watched the game-winning hit and thought there was no way Jonny Gomes was going to score. We still aren’t sure […]

    Edwin Jackson takes the mound tonight in the first game of a three-game set with the Indians and we have no idea what to expect. Jackson could throw a 2-hit shutout, striking out 10 or he might get knocked out in the third inning. Therein lies the enigma that is […]
