    Joe is back with his post-game thoughts…. Forget about tonight’s incredibly satisfying 4-3 win against the hated Yankees for a moment, for Joe it was truly special when Hideki Matsui was yanked with a bad hamstring just before his first at-bat and Jeff Keppinger popped off the bench and drilled […]

    The GBT – The Good, The Bad and The Telling sandwich, where The Bad is nice and lean and the The Telling is ripe. RAYS (boxscore) THE GOOD: Matt Moore. It was weird night for Double-Nickel. At no point did I think that Moore had his best stuff, but next […]

    Joe is back with his post-game thoughts…. Every good Rays fan knows the predictably unpredictable Rays were primed for an 11-0 romp tonight after getting clobbered and swept by the Mets the past few nights. But far more important than the rather enjoyable torture Tampa Bay forces fans to endure was […]

    Joe is back with his post-game thoughts…. Forget about the stunning Rays win tonight for half a second, what a treat it was to hear Rays fans coming through the TV extra loud and clear in Miami. It’s great to be on the other end of that home-game humiliation for a change. Back to the […]

    The GBT – The Good, The Bad and The Telling sandwich, where The Bad is nice and lean and the The Telling is ripe. White Sox 2, RAYS 1 (boxscore) THE GOOD: Matt Moore. Double-Nickel still throws too many fastballs up in the zone. Of his 71 fastballs, only 25 […]

    According to Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times (via Twitter), Hideki Matsui will be promoted and join the Rays tomorrow. The Rays have yet to announce who will be removed from the roster. Matsui was just 6-36 (.167) in 13 games at triple-A Durham, with nine strikeouts and four […]

    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 […]

    The GBT – The Good, The Bad and The Telling sandwich, where The Bad is nice and lean and the The Telling is ripe. Red Sox 5, RAYS 3 (boxscore) THE GOOD: No Panic. Matt Moore had a rough start, in which 5 of the first 8 batters he faced […]
