    Over the last few weeks there has been an awakening surrounding Ben Zobrist. With his 10 RBI day a few weekends ago and his sudden hot streak, Zobrist once again has the Rays Community all aflutter. After being mired in a yearlong slump in 2010 and sleepwalking through the first […]

    THE GOOD: Ben Zobrist. In the second inning, BenZo made a Jason Bartlett-esque play in the hole, turning and making a one-hop throw to first for the out. Later, with the Rays trailing 1-0 in the 7th and one of the game’s best pitchers on the mound, Eric Hinske drew […]

    THE GOOD: The Red Sox lost to the D-Backs so the Rays pulled within 1 game of the AL East and are actually a game up on the Sawx in the ever-so-important loss column. THE BAD: Sutter Home wines (well, there goes a potential sponsor). THE TELLING: We should be […]

    Tampa Bay Rays (42 days until pitchers and catchers report)It is a slow time in baseball right now and a lot of baseball team blogs are struggling to find things to write about. To fill the time, most of these sites are (over)analyzing 2007 and picking apart the numbers and […]

    [Ed. note (4:29pm): Eduardo Encina is reporting that the contract has not been finalized] Yahoo! Sports (are we the only ones that loathe the exclamation point?) is reporting that the Rays have signed Cliff Floyd to a 1-year contract with a team option in 2009. Floyd will make a base […]

    Devil Rays 17, Orioles 2.In last night’s offensive outburst, Brendan Harris hit his first home run since June 18. Teamed with Ben Zobrist and Josh Wilson, the Rays have been sporting below-average hitters and brick-glove defensemen at the shortstop position. With Reid Brignac still at least a year away from […]

    Devil Rays 4, Indians 3 (12 innings). PLAYING A LIL’ PEPPER WITH THE RAYS (random thoughts on yesterday’s game)…Joel Guzman hits singles? When did that start happening? How many people watched the game-winning hit and thought there was no way Jonny Gomes was going to score. We still aren’t sure […]

    Devil Rays 5, Blue Jays 4. It was the type of game that can help a team salvage a little dignity in a lost season. It was the type of game that can remind team that they do know how to win a game. Andy Sonnanstine allowed 2 runs in […]
