    The GBT – The Good, The Bad and The Telling sandwich, where The Bad is nice and lean and the The Telling is ripe. RAYS 8, Jays 5 (boxscore) THE GOOD: Carlos Pena. Pena was hitting just .116 with 1 HR in the last 20 games, so Joe Maddon wanted […]

    Joe is back with his post-game thoughts…. What a great Rays win – minus the Bad News Bears imitation, another heinous bunt and the routine Matt Moore implosion. But 14 glorious hits will save you nearly every time. This one was an 8-5 triumph against the Jays. Joe Maddon’s magic fix-it routine batting Karlos Pena leadoff paid […]

    Adrian Gonzalez went on a Boston radio station after last night’s loss to the Rays and vented about the strikezone of home plate umpire Hunter Wendelstedt. That’s fine. But then things got interesting when Gonzalez was asked about his lack of power this season (he has two home runs)… Gonzalez […]

    Joe is back with his postgame thoughts….   So the Rays jump out to a four-run, first-inning lead today against the formerly anemic A’s and lose 9-5 at home. What odds would the stat geeks have given for that to happen? A 1.5 percent chance? Joe was in agony watching […]

    Last night after the game, Joe Maddon spoke about Matt Moore’s struggle with commanding his fastball… “I think a lot [his pitch count] has to do with commanding the fastball where he wants to. They were kinda strikes, but they weren’t exactly where he wanted them to be strikes…I think […]
