    OK, maybe there is as the Rays and Red Sox tied 1-1. Edwin Jackson struck out 6 and only walked 2 in 4.2 innings. Gary Glover only surrendered 1 walk in 2 innings. It seems like a bit of a stretch that Jorge Cantu could be sent down to Durham […]

    Remember when the Rays were 1-14? Another win last night on a walk-off single by Elijah Dukes in the 10th and the Rays have now won 5 of 7. B. J. Upton had two RBI and two more hits and now has his spring average up to .277. Casey Fossum […]

    16 runs and 29 hits in two days after the Rays 9-2 victory over the ‘Stros, and all of the sudden the Rays have won 4 of 6. James Shields struck out 6 in 5.1 innings but struggled with his control, walking 4. Seth McClung looked better, giving up only […]

    Courtesy of Paul Lukas of Uniwatch here is a shot of Akinori Iwamura wearing Oakley Thumps, with built-in MP3 player during warm-ups. Don’t look now, but the Rays have all of a sudden won three of their last five. Yesterday’s 7-0 victory over Cleveland was their best all-around performance of […]

    The Rays optioned Joel Guzman to AAA Durham on Monday. Guzman, who showed up to Spring Training slimmed down, impressed the coaches with his defensive ability at third base, but struggled with the bat. He was 4-29 with 2 doubles and a home run. Guzman has a long ways to […]

    The Rays rallied from down 3-0 pull out just their third win of the Spring 5-4, in one of two split-squad games. In the other game, the two pitchers that appear to have a leg up for the final spot in the rotation, each tossed three innings in the 6-0 […]

    While many major league teams wear special green hats and/or uniforms on St. Patrick’s Day, the Rays actually chose to wear less green, going with a white cap with green bill (Another image is below). The players also wore their pants just below the knees in a welcomed old-school fashion. […]

    Jae Seo looked strong with four shutout innings of 1-hit ball in the Rays loss. Seth McClung’s hopes for claiming the closer’s role took a big hit allowing five runs in one inning. The offense? Two hits! Both came in the seventh inning. Everyone in the organization has been saying […]

    B. J. “Don’t call me Melvin” Upton is a big story for the Rays this Spring and the Worldwide Leader is starting to pick up on it. Papa Joe Maddon is giving Upton a shot to make the team as a “super-utility” player. He would not have a regular position, […]

    Moral victory last night. The Rays were losing the entire game so the ‘pen did not blow the lead. We never gave Brian Stokes much of a chance to win the fifth spot in the rotation and…what? We had Stokes in the rotation’s 5th spot earlier this week? Never happened. […]
