    In 1998, 42 different players played for the Tampa Bay Devil Rays in their inaugural season. And 16 years later, Miguel Cairo was the only player from that team still playing in the big leagues. That is, until he retired today and took a job in the Cincinnati Reds front […]

    This screen grab comes from the video for Chris Brown’s song “Holla At Me” (thanks Cory). And for some reason, Brown is wearing old school Devil Rays jacket and cap. Of course, most of you probably know Brown better as the guy that plead guilty to felony assault for beating up […]

    Below is a St. Pete Times article from August 26, 1941. Kinda cool (click on image for a larger version)… Two things we love about this article other than the obvious: 1) apparently anybody could just call the newspaper and tell them anything and it would get published; 2) the […]

    Rays Wore Wrong Caps Saturday Night?

    Good catch by reader Justin, who points out that on Saturday night, the Rays may have worn the wrong cap. For throwback night, the Rays wore the home jerseys from 1998 and 1999, but they wore the “away” cap of 1998. In 1998, the home caps had a purple bill […]

    Time to bring back 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: Throwback Unis. The hats are still awful. But honestly, the jersey aren’t as bad as we remember. One complaint about […]

    This screengrab came in the 4th inning. It was the first batter after Gabe Gross had just given the Rays a 10-0 lead. Reid Brignac fouled a ball down the right field line… Yes, that is a guy wearing a retro #33 Jose Canseco “Devil Rays” jersey, showing up on […]

    How Does One Quantify 10 Years Of Sucktitude? Fastest Franchise To 1,000 Losses!

    Yesterday afternoon, the Tampa Bay Rays became the 29th franchise in baseball history to lose 1,000 games. And it only took 10 years and 73 days, easily out-distancing the Arizona Diamondbacks who now stand at 853-833 and bettering the previous mark by 10 days. The San Diego Padres needed 10 […]
