    The Hangover: Devil Rays Blow Yet Another Big Lead

    Diamondbacks 10, Devil Rays 8. Remember the second moment that we were bracing for? Al Reyes blowing a save was that moment. We were starting to get a little too comfortable with Reyes at the back end of the bullpen. No closer is perfect and Reyes proved that last night […]

    Rockies 12, Devil Rays 2.Prior to last night’s game, there were two instances that had yet to happen, but for which we had been bracing ourselves to occur eventually. James Shields is maturing into a great pitcher, and before last night he had been nearly perfect on the season. He […]

    Devil Rays 9, Marlins 4. It is all about winning series. Find a way to win 2 of 3 every time out. The win yesterday gave the Rays their second straight series win and both were highly improbable. After losing the opening game of each series with bullpen melt-downs of […]

    Devil Rays 5, Toronto 3.We’re done trying to figure out this team. They do this all the time. Tuesday’s loss was the sort that can kill a team. It was the sort of game that can lead to a 6-game losing streak and a 7-28 stretch, and all of the […]

    Blue Jays 12, Devil Rays 11. It hurts. real bad. But it would hurt a lot worse if we were surprised. Is there anybody out there that didn’t think, with Al Reyes unavailable, that this bullpen was capable of blowing a 5 run lead? Bullpens are supposed to put out […]

    Marlins 4, Devil Rays 3.Give us a moment. We need to dig into our bag of previous posts. Let’s see how hard it will be to find a previous post that describes yesterday’s game. James Shields pitches great…Bullpen blows lead..Rays lose…Rays lose series Let’s just move on and pretend it […]

    A’s 5, Devil Rays 3. After winning three of the previous four series, the Rays came back to earth a little by dropping the rubber match with the A’s. The good news is, that despite throwing both Casey Fossum and Edwin Jackson in the series, the Rays only allowed 12 […]

    Al Reyes is 5 years older and has 4 years more experience than any other member of the 2007 Tampa Bay Devil Rays. After a second Tommy John surgery and missing most of 2006, nobody knew what to expect from King Reyes in 2007. So far his performance has been […]

    We predicted a few days ago that Brendan Harris would start digging into Ben Zobrist’s playing time. That is starting to look like a reality. The question is whether the Brendan Harris we are seeing is the real Brendan Harris, or if we will soon see the player that was […]

    We had a dream last night that the Rays blew a lead late (as usual) against the Blue Jays but actually rallied to score 3 in the bottom of the 9th off of one of the best closers in baseball including a game-tying 2-run home run by Delmon Young, to […]
