    [HOT STOVE] Jayson Stark: Rays Still Interested In Bringing Delmon Young Back

    December 9, 2008 at 12:59 pm 5 comments

    Yesterday, Jayson Stark wrote that a source was saying the Rays would “never” take Delmon Young back. Not so fast. Today Stark is saying the talks are very much alive and might involve a third team. Stuff can change fast at the winter meetings. Contrary to what I reported Monday […]

    Rule #1 in a fight is to never punch “down” a weight class, it is a no-win situation…so we promise to keep civil, but we also feel the need to stick up for all sensible baseball fans. Because apparently if you think Jason Bartlett is a better defensive shortstop than […]

Not a damn thing. THE BAD: We don’t want to talk about […]

    THE GOOD: Jeff Niemann. After barely surviving a first inning in which he loaded the bases with only one out, he got out of it without allowing a run. He followed that up by facing only 2 over the minimum until he gave up a lead off home run in […]

    This trade was not Delmon Young-for-Matt Garza. This trade was not a 3-for-3 deal. Make no mistake this was a 3-for-1 deal and one could make a very strong argument that this was a 5-for-1 deal (we will get back to that in a moment). Both Brendan Harris and Jason […]

    Angels 2, Devil Rays 1.This is what drives us absolutely nuts about the local coverage of the Tampa Bay Devil Rays. We stayed up late last night and caught every pitch of the Rays 89th loss of the season. We went to bed frustrated with the offense, but content that […]
