    Click on above images to be taken to full standings, boxscores or schedule… THE GOOD: Speed. The Rays have it and the White Sox don’t. Game 2 marked the first time ever that Carl Crawford, BJ Upton and Fernando Perez started together in the outfield. Add Rocco Baldelli at DH […]

    [TAMPA BAY RAYS] A Fitting 3rd Anniversary Indeed

    October 3, 2008 at 11:45 pm 1 comment

    Apparently the gift for a 3rd anniversary is “ALDS WIN”. Tonight the Rays took a 2-0 lead in the ALDS and for some reason that seems secondary to what we should really be celebrating. Today (we think…we might be off by a day) marks the 3rd anniversary of the day […]

    [HAPPY HOUR] Dirtbag Powers Rays To Game 1 Win

    October 2, 2008 at 8:02 pm 10 comments

    THE GOOD: Evan Longoria. Dirtbag became just the second player to homer in each of his first 2 playoff at bats. The first player to accomplish this feat was Gary Gaetti. Coincidentally, Gaetti was Longoria’s hitting coach at triple-A Durham…The Bullpen (again). Grant Balfour came in with 1 out in […]

    Click on above images to be taken to full standings, boxscores or schedule… We wrote an ALDS preview for the fine folks over at The Hardball Times. As usual, we like to call these guest spots “Rays Index on amphetamines” as they tend to be a little longer than what […]

    Click on above images to be taken to full standings, boxscores or schedule… THE GOOD: Ben Zobrist. Is this guy’s blood being checked? Zorilla went deep twice yesterday, including a shot to straightaway center field that is a rare sight in Comerica Park. THE BAD: Scott Kazmir. Has there ever […]

    [UPDATE: 11:32] The Red Sox beat the Indians, but the Rays overcame a first inning that saw the O’s score 5 runs before an out, to get the win. With the victory, the Rays magic number to win the division is now 1. The Angels are currently losing in the […]

    [PEANUT BUTTER JELLY TIME] The Real Reason Stuart Sternberg Was At The Trop Last Night?

    Stuart Sternberg was at the Trop last night and this video suddenly appears on the interwebs today…Coincidence? If you watch the video under the assumption that Sternberg is in the banana costume, the comedy factor increases exponentially…And we would love to make fun of Raymond, but ever since his renaissance, […]

    September 16, 2008 at 12:20 pm 2 comments

    Click on above images to be taken to full standings, boxscores or schedule… THE GOOD: The Rays still lead the Red Sox by 1 game in the loss column and the Twins by 8 games in the loss column…That translates to a 99.9% chance of making the playoffs. THE BAD: […]

    [THE HANGOVER] David Price Could Make First Start As Early As Wednesday

    THE GOOD: James Shields. It had been a while since we had seen Shields paint one of his Shieldsian Masterpieces. When Shields is on his game as he was yesterday, it is like watching a young Greg Maddux. The Greg Maddux that actually threw fastballs in the low 90s and […]

    [THE HANGOVER] Kazmir Gives Up Game At Crucial Moment

    June 23, 2008 at 10:20 am 2 comments

    THE GOOD: Evan Longoria’s home run in the 2nd, his 12th. We don’t want to stretch this comparison too much, but Dirtbag’s stance and swing have always reminded us of Alex Rodriguez and both hitters are very similar in that they both generate an immense amount of power despite having […]
