    The Hangover: Edwin Jackson Is The Big Tease

    June 19, 2007 at 10:08 am 5 comments

    Devil Rays 10, D-Backs 2. Last night was as frustrating as a 10-2 win can ever be. Edwin Jackson pitched 4.2 innings before being removed from the game for precautionary reasons. Jackson was experiencing cramping in the index finger of his pitching hand. Last night was frustrating because on the […]

    Devil Rays 7, Rockies 4.Remember back in the off-season when the only position we were worried about was who would fill the enormous shoes of Travis Lee? Elijah Dukes took his first base mitt to the Arizona Fall League. Jonny Gomes borrowed a glove for about 3 hours early in […]

    Durham 7, Indy 3. Rocco Baldelli didn’t waste anytime getting his bat warmed up. In just the second at bat of his first live action in over a month, Baldelli hit a solo home run. He finished the game 1-3 with a walk as the Bulls’ DH. Justin Ruggiano went […]

    Rockies 12, Devil Rays 2.Prior to last night’s game, there were two instances that had yet to happen, but for which we had been bracing ourselves to occur eventually. James Shields is maturing into a great pitcher, and before last night he had been nearly perfect on the season. He […]

    Nate Silver of Baseball Prospectus and SI.com recently released his list of the 50 Most Valuable Players in baseball. We took Mr. Silver to task for not including Carl Crawford. Let’s just say we aren’t buying Nate a beer anytime soon. In light of this glaring omission, we thought it […]

    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 […]

    Durham 5, Indianapolis 0. We had a couple of things going on so we were going to skip this feature today. Of course by a “couple of things” we mean we didn’t get to sleep til real late. But nooooooo. Jeff Niemann has to go and toss 6.1 innings of […]

    Padres 9, Devil Rays 0.That should about do it for Edwin Jackson. We have tried to defend Jackson, even though he has been as bad as Jae Seo and Casey Fossum. We wanted the other two members of The Axis of Evil out of the rotation, but not Jackson. The […]

    Devil Rays 11, Padres 4. Shhhh. *in a hushed tone* The Rays have now won 7 of 9. We are afraid to say it too loud. If other people find out, they may think it is some sort of mistake and take some of the wins back. Last night it […]

    Scranton 2, Durham 1. Wouldn’t you know it. Jae Seo sucks (you know what) with the Rays, gets designated for assignment, accepts it, makes his first start for Durham and looks like Sandy friggin’ Koufax*. Granted it was only 4 innings, but he only gave up 1 run on 1 […]
