    Click on above images to be taken to full standings, boxscores or schedule… THE GOOD: Edwin Jackson. A steady diet of 95 mph fastballs and decent sliders. And maybe Jackson’s greatest trait is his endurance. His fastest pitch of the night was the last pitch of the 8th inning, a […]

    Outs Per Swing takes a look at Scott Kazmir’s numbers and notes that almost all are regressing this season. This leads to the question: “Should The Rays Trade Scott Kazmir?” So why would you consider trading a 24 year old flame throwing left hander? Because his trade value has never […]

    THE GOOD: Jason Bartlett’s first home run with the Rays. We honestly wondered if he would ever hit an over-the-fence home run with the Rays.

    THE TELLING: Noticed this during the home run derby, but forgot about it…All of the All-Stars had their team’s logo on the right sleeve of the All-Star jerseys (ie. Cubs). However, Evan Longoria’s jersey had the Rays’ fish logo rather than the new sunburst logo. And yes, we are aware […]
