    The Hangover: Cantu Or Gomes For Final Spot

    Two big notes from yesterday’s 3-3 tie with the Pink Sox. Edwin Jackson worked six innings and yielded only a single walk while striking out 5. Jackson has only had one start this spring in which his control betrayed him. If this keeps up, Jackson could be in for a […]

    OK, maybe there is as the Rays and Red Sox tied 1-1. Edwin Jackson struck out 6 and only walked 2 in 4.2 innings. Gary Glover only surrendered 1 walk in 2 innings. It seems like a bit of a stretch that Jorge Cantu could be sent down to Durham […]

    The bullpen forgot to blow the win last night. Akinori Iwamura felt a lot better after the game after driving in a run with just his second hit of the Spring. However, we wince at the idea that it was a “game-winning” RBI. The Rays won by five and it […]

    Justin Morneau of the Minnesota Twins won the 2006 AL MVP award…Derek Jeter did not. Shockingly, the Rays 2006 Team MVP, Carl Crawford, did not receive any first place votes. However, he did receive one 9th place vote to finish 26th in the balloting. To put this in perspective, one […]

    Devil Rays 11, Nationals 1. The Rays hit 5 home runs last night in the cavernous RFK stadium, two by Carl Crawford. Yesterday a report came from the Denver Post indicating that the Rockies were interested in C. C. but one reporter indicated that Jeff Francis and an injured AA […]
