    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 […]

    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 […]

    Padres 7, Devil Rays 1.JP Howell did his job. After a shaky first in which he gave up an unearned run on 1 hit and 2 walks, Howell settled down and faced only one over the minimum over the next 6 innings. Unfortunately, as soon as Gary Glover allowed the […]

    Devil Rays 5, Royals 1. Let’s see if we can make it three for three… On two previous occasions we have been critical of headlines found on devilrays.com. On both occasions, the title of the article was subsequently changed. On the first occasion, the title was factually wrong and on […]

    Royals 4, Devil Rays 1. Only the Rays could throw up a stinker and make Brian Bannister look like Johan Santana. The Devil Rays finally made changes to the rotation that we all have patiently waited for. OK, maybe we weren’t very patient at times. Jae Seo has been designated […]

    Durham 5, Pawtucket 0. It was the Mitch Talbot show in Durham last night. Talbot made his first AAA start and still hasn’t allowed a hit. He worked 6 innings, walked 2 and struck out 4. The PawSox broke up the no-hitter with a 2-out single in the 8th off […]
