    I apologize for the lack of posts over the last 24 hours. But on the same day that Manny Ramirez reported to the Rays spring training complex (5 days early, way to go Manny!), my second daughter reported for duty in the Rayshead Army. Clare Maguire was born yesterday. Mrs. […]

    Yesterday we linked to a story that I wrote over at Business Insider in which I speculated that if the Wilpon Family is forced to sell the Mets, Stuart Sternberg could emerge as a candidate to buy the team. In that story I laid out several reasons why I thought the […]

    There has been a lot of speculation that the Wilpon family, owners of the New York Mets, lost a great deal of money due to their relationship with Bernie Madoff’s Ponzi scheme. And now the team has announced that the Wilpons will sell 20-25% of the team. Let the Stuart […]

    Stuart Sternberg spoke on a number of topics including Carl Crawford (“thrilled we and he were able to put him in a position to take care of his family for generations to come”), big money in free agency this year (“it’s discouraging”) and next year’s payroll (“It’s really a question […]

    Joe Maddon finished third in the American League Manager of the Year voting. He received one first place vote, which is fitting, because Ron Gardenhire (this year’s winner) received the one first place vote that kept Maddon from being a unanimous selection in 2008. THE JUNKYARD DOGS WEBTOPIA… Noah Pransky […]

    Yesterday marked the 5th anniversary of the day Stuart Sternberg took control of the Rays. And what special anniversary it was. Looking back five years to the day, could any of us have imagined that the TAMPA BAY RAYS would be celebrating their second division title in three years? *Raise […]

    Simmons And Kornheiser Compare 2010 Rays To 1997 Marlins

    Yesterday we worried that Stuart Sternberg’s comments about the 2011 payroll would lead to unfair comparisons to the 1997 Marlins, a team that won the World Series and then completely gutted their roster. The 1998 Marlins lost 108 games. Big League Stew thought we were overreacting (us? overreact? never!). Well, […]

    The Rays opened the season with a $72 million payroll. Back in March, Stuart Sternberg announced that the 2011 payroll would be less than $60 million. And now, two weeks prior to the playoffs, Sternberg said the payroll is going down no matter what the Rays do in the playoffs… […]

    This morning, Deadspin released financial documents from several teams. Among the documents are four pages from the Tampa Bay Rays covering the teams finances from 2007 and 2008. We are still in the process of breaking down the numbers, but the first thing to jump out at us is confirmation […]
