    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 […]

    Tim Wakefield 6, Devil Rays 0. We got nothin’ today…Enjoy the links while Delmon Young flails and misses yet another Wakefield knuckler by 18 inches. And wake us when Kazmir finally stops throwing pitches in the first inning. DEVIL RAYS WEBTOPIA… In addition to being called up to the majors […]

    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 […]

    Rangers 7, Devil Rays 4.Remember that 2-game winning streak and series-split in Detroit? Seems like a distant memory after last night’s loss and knowing that Edwin Jackson is on the mound tonight. DEVIL RAYS WEBTOPIA… Andy Sonnanstine is learning that what worked in the minors is not necessarily going to […]

    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, […]

    Orioles 6, Devil Rays 1. Just the links today, with limited posts for the rest of the week as we trek back to the Sunshine State for some much-needed R&R and a 3-game set with the Red Sox and the Pink Hat Nation. DEVIL RAYS WEBTOPIA… Joe Maddon was openly […]

    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. […]

    Benjamin Franklin said that the definition of insanity is “doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.” Today we introduce exhibit #1 that Joe Maddon and the Devil Rays front office are insane… If we don’t come back after the break better in the bullpen, we’re not. […]
