    Devil Rays 5, Tigers 3. James Shields proved last night that if he wants a W, he just going to have to go out and do it himself. Shields had not won since a May 3rd victory over the Twins. That’s a span of 4 starts including a start in […]

    Devil Rays 6, Tigers 5. If someone would have approached us and said “would you sign for being tied with the Yankees after 49 games?” We would have been idiots to say ‘no’, yet somehow being tied with the Yankees and 13.5 games behind the Pink Hats is not so […]

    Mariners 5, Devil Rays 1.The Tampa Bay Devil Rays are still tied for second in the AL with 54 home runs, yet they rank 12th in the AL with 196 runs scored. Only the Mariners and White Sox have scored fewer runs. Why the problem scoring runs? The Devil Rays […]

    Nate Silver of Baseball Prospectus and SI.com recently released his list of “Baseball’s Top 50 MVPs.” In concept, the UFD (Ultimate Fantasy Draft) is pretty simple: If you were starting a baseball team from scratch, which players would you want to build your team around? Three members of the Tampa […]

    Devil Rays 2, Blue Jays 1. We are not going to get fooled in to thinking that Jae Seo is suddenly worthy of a spot in the rotation. This is what he does. He is just good enough, just often enough, that his teams keep believing that he is just […]

    With an off-night last night, we were all set to sing a little diddy to you about BJ Upton and his hot start. But then came word the Juan Salas had gone all “Jose Canseco” on us. We, like most Devil Rays fans have been shouting at the top of […]

    Orioles 6, Devil Rays 4. He is only 23…he is only 23…he is only 23…102 pitches in 4 innings. 6 hits, 4 walks. Scott Kazmir actually threw 60 strikes, which is not terrible, so it is not just his lack of control. He just throws too many pitches. Some how […]

    Minnesota 12, D-Rays 5.Edwin Jackson threw 66 pitches in 3+ innings and only 33 were for strikes. He also hit a batter and threw a wild pitch. The defense did not help matters by throwing a few of their own wild pitches. After going the entire first week without an […]

    Thursday night’s game will now be known as “The Game We Do Not Speak Of.” Carl Crawford made up for it when left fielder Josh Rabe played CC’s single into an inside-the-park home run in the Rays 4-2 win over the Twins. Scott Kazmir did his part and out-dueled the […]

    “stomach-punch” game. Carl Crawford hit a double in the 9It’s funny but sad. Losing a lead in the 8th or 9th inning should be the worst way to lose a game. The Devil Rays bullpen blows so many leads late in games, that when they do, it is never very […]
