    Durham 5, Pawtucket 0. It was the Mitch Talbot show in Durham last night. Talbot made his first AAA start and still hasn’t allowed a hit. He worked 6 innings, walked 2 and struck out 4. The PawSox broke up the no-hitter with a 2-out single in the 8th off […]

    Game 2 of the 2007 season was rained out yesterday. No makeup date has been scheduled. If the game had been played, Jonny Damon would not have been in the lineup. He is suffering from a sore calf, which caused him to be removed from Monday’s opener. In fact, now […]

    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 […]

    We are one week from opening day and based on the pitching assignments that manager Joe Maddon has utilized recently, we now know the order of the Rays starting pitching rotation and it hints at who the 5th starter is. First let’s look at the slots… Scott Kazmir Jae Seo […]

    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 […]

    Remember when the Rays were 1-14? Another win last night on a walk-off single by Elijah Dukes in the 10th and the Rays have now won 5 of 7. B. J. Upton had two RBI and two more hits and now has his spring average up to .277. Casey Fossum […]

    The Rays rallied from down 3-0 pull out just their third win of the Spring 5-4, in one of two split-squad games. In the other game, the two pitchers that appear to have a leg up for the final spot in the rotation, each tossed three innings in the 6-0 […]

    Moral victory last night. The Rays were losing the entire game so the ‘pen did not blow the lead. We never gave Brian Stokes much of a chance to win the fifth spot in the rotation and…what? We had Stokes in the rotation’s 5th spot earlier this week? Never happened. […]

    Anybody else think that Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito throws harder than Casey Fossum. Alito put on a Rays uniform and threw out the first pitch before the Rays-Phils games yesterday. [Insert cheesy “right”-handed joke here] The Rays suffered two more ugly losses during split-squad action, falling to the Twins […]

    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 […]
