    Norfolk 4, Durham 1 (7 inn). JP Howell struck out 7 without a walk in 7 innings but 2 home runs in the first were all that Norfolk needed. Howell would settle down and retire 19 of the last 20 batters he faced before the game was called due to […]

    Columbus 5, Durham 2. We admit we took a double-take when we saw the Bulls were playing Columbus. We momentarily forgot about the Columbus Clippers the former AAA affiliate of the Yankees. They are now the AAA affiliate of the Washington Nationals and not the low-A affiliate of the Devil […]

    The Hangover: The Devil Rays Only Love It When It Rains

    Another loss. Want a good reason to hate the Trop? Based on the Spring results so far (1 win came during rain-shortened game) and the inept bullpen, the Rays will go 162-0 if every game were to be shortened due to rain. Maybe they can force a leak in the […]

    The Hangover: Akinori Iwamura, 20-40 Guy. Muu-RAH!

    One of the biggest questions entering the 2007 season is how well Akinori Iwamura will adjust to Major League pitching. Most believe that his average will drop slightly, but his power will take a big hit. What nobody has speculated on is his base stealing totals. Well, despite a career […]

    Starting next week we plan to start a weekly post covering the D-Rays minor league system. However, Wednesday night’s Visalia Oaks game could not wait until next week to be mentioned. The team tied a California League record by hitting 8 home runs in a 17-15 victory over the Bakersfield […]
