    The Hangover: A Sweet Dream Indeed

    April 7, 2007 at 1:12 pm 0 comments

    We had a dream last night that the Rays blew a lead late (as usual) against the Blue Jays but actually rallied to score 3 in the bottom of the 9th off of one of the best closers in baseball including a game-tying 2-run home run by Delmon Young, to […]

    The Hangover: Devil Rays Earn Split With Yankees

    The Rays earned a sweep against the Yankees with a 7-6 win on a snowy night in the Bronx. One of the Yankee announcers last night mentioned that the Rays were beating the Yankees at their own game. We think it was the other way around. New York committed 3 […]

    Game 2 of the 2007 season was rained out yesterday. No makeup date has been scheduled. If the game had been played, Jonny Damon would not have been in the lineup. He is suffering from a sore calf, which caused him to be removed from Monday’s opener. In fact, now […]

    The Rays concluded spring training with an 8-3 win over the Mets at the Trop. It’s too bad that the Rays couldn’t have played the Mets on a day that Scott Kazmir started. It would have been fun to see all the Mets fans at the Trop crying. The Rays […]

    The Rays made it official today as Jorge Cantu was demoted to Durham, making BJ Upton the Rays starting second baseman. It was probably the last we have seen of Cantu in a Rays uniform, as he has asked to be traded, stating that he “is not a minor league […]

    The Hangover: Chad Orvella Never Had A Chance To Make Team

    Jae Seo came back down to earth a bit allowing 5 runs in the first inning of his final spring tune up. The Rays lost to the Reds 5-4. BJ Upton had 3 hits and 2 stolen bases. That the Rays decided to send Seth McClung down to Durham doesn’t […]

     
  • The Devil Rays Have Shortened The Distance From Tampa Bay To New York

    The Devil Rays Have Shortened The Distance From Tampa Bay To New York

    The distance from the Trop to Yankee Stadium is more than just 40 wins and $160 million in payroll. Most of that distance can be measured in a single word. Accountability. When the Devil Rays released Dan Miceli yesterday it barely registered a blip on the national sports radar. That […]

Hunsicker, who has the most baseball experience in the Rays front office, was interviewed by Mike Francesa and Chris Russo of the #1 sports talk radio show in the country, Mike and […]

    The Phillies beat the Rays 9-2 in Scott Kazmir’s final appearance before opening day. Damn, we hate losing to Philadelphia team in anything. So then we just go back and watch our tape of THIS game and we feel soooo much better. It appears as though we will need to […]

    The Hangover: More Cuts Expected Today

    After the Rays 1-0 win over the Jays, the Rays no longer have the worst spring training record. In fact they are now ahead of the White Sox and the Mets. This time it was the pitching staff led by Casey Fossum. The Fossum Flop pitched 5 shutout innings allowing […]
