    Postgame Shot Of Joe: 2011 Season Wrapped In One Game

    Joe is really enjoying this Rays season, and much of why was all wrapped up in one game tonight as the Rays spanked the Tribe. First, there was the resurgence of the Legend of Sam Fuld. Dude snapped an ugly streak at the plate with three hits, a couple of RBIs […]

    Damn. Walking in the winning run. Stinks, but Joe can’t get too upset over this win. Sonny is a spot starter and long reliever yet he pitched admirably against a team that is hot, on the road no less. Aside from the walks (yeah, Joe knows, “Don’t worry Mrs. Theismann, […]

    Well, it was a little too close for comfort, but the reason Joe loves the Rays this year shined in this game. * Ace David Price continued his dominance over the Jays, throwing a strong eight innings (Joe will try to forget that ninth inning… with the help of some […]

    After Jeff Niemann got roughed up and the Rays offense couldn’t find clutch hits, Joe Maddon was predictably and rightfully upbeat tonight. The Rays bested the Twins and White Sox in respective home series’ and, well, you can’t win every game. The good guys sit 2.5 back of the Yankees […]

    Wow, what a game. Joe suspects the Rays 5-0 win over the White Sox was exactly what Rays fans had hoped for before the season, much less Merlot Joe Maddon. The Rays would need solid starting pitching. And they got just that. David Price, easily his best start of the […]

    The GBT – The Good, The Bad and The Telling sandwich, where The Bad is nice and lean and the The Telling is ripe. THE GOOD: Starting Pitching. About the only good thing yesterday was knowing that Andy Sonnanstine won’t be in the starting rotation unless something bad happens. THE […]

    Joe Maddon will have a roster with a lot of flexibility this season. In other words, it is his dream come true. And how those pieces fit together on a daily basis is in part dependent on how Maddon chooses to use Ben Zobrist. There has been a lot of […]
