    What a year it has been for James Shields. The guy, in less than a year, has gone from Big Game to No Game back to Big Game and now Complete Game Shields. The guy is now in some rare company. Since the turn of the century, only 16 pitchers […]

    Damn. For a while it seemed like the Rays would really rally. David Price had one of his worst starts of the season, yet the Rays only trailed by two. Red Sux starter Clay Buchholz had to leave in the fifth with a bum back. This was too good to be true. […]

    No, Joe’s not drunk. He actually wrote the headline above stone sober. Even Joe has a hard time believing he wrote that headline, but it’s true. It was Kelly Shoppach that likely had the key hit of the game, a two-run single to left that plated Bossman and SRod. It gave the […]

    Reid Brignac has exactly zero extra-base hits in 82 at bats this season. So when we saw him holding a bat and talking to Sean Rodriguez, who is hitting .211 but has 11 extra-base hits, it made us wonder…what could they be talking about? So have at it amateur caption […]

    Without Longoria, Rays Third Basemen Among Worst In AL

    Yesterday’s loss to the Angels should be the last game without Evan Longoria in the lineup. And even if Dirtbag has a little rust, he will still be a vast improvement over those that manned the hot corner in his absence. In all, Longoria’s oblique cost him 26 games, with […]

    Just miserable stuff for anyone who invested the nearly four hours into tonight’s extra-inning choke job in Toronto. At least the Sam Fuld show kept up the entertainment value. You just knew Sean Rodriguez dropping a perfect pickoff throw at second base in the seventh inning was trouble, combined with […]

    Wow, what a game. Joe suspects the Rays 5-0 win over the White Sox was exactly what Rays fans had hoped for before the season, much less Merlot Joe Maddon. The Rays would need solid starting pitching. And they got just that. David Price, easily his best start of the […]
