    Orioles 9, Devil Rays 7. We don’t want to talk about it. OK, we will say this. We better get used to it. This is a team that will look like a playoff contender on some nights and the Bad News Bears on others. During last season’s post-all-star break swoon, […]

    “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 […]

    After the Rays 1-0 win over the Jays, the Rays no longer have the worst spring training record. In fact they are now ahead of the White Sox and the Mets. This time it was the pitching staff led by Casey Fossum. The Fossum Flop pitched 5 shutout innings allowing […]

    While many major league teams wear special green hats and/or uniforms on St. Patrick’s Day, the Rays actually chose to wear less green, going with a white cap with green bill (Another image is below). The players also wore their pants just below the knees in a welcomed old-school fashion. […]

    Another day…another loss. James Shields was shaky in the first, but settled down and retired nine of the final ten he face. He struck out five in four innings. Seth McClung had a rough outing and Joe Maddon made it clear that he has not decided who the closer is […]

    We understand the excitement about the possibility of Edwin Jackson being the 5th starter for the Rays this season. Of course, everybody points to the 3-2 record and 1.60 ERA in the Venezuelan Winter League. The St. Pete Times ran an article on Jackson and his hopes of making the […]
