    Devil Rays 5, Toronto 3.We’re done trying to figure out this team. They do this all the time. Tuesday’s loss was the sort that can kill a team. It was the sort of game that can lead to a 6-game losing streak and a 7-28 stretch, and all of the […]

    Devil Rays (off day) Quick side note: You know what is great about yesterday’s off-day? At least one more day of people talking about how the Yankees are in last place tied with the Devil Rays. It is like informing a guy that his wife cheated on him with 5 […]

    Tigers 14, Devil Rays 2. Starting pitching can carry a team — or weigh it down. The Devil Rays are experiencing the latter, as three of the team’s five starting pitchers have been as inconsistent as their ERAs are high. Those are the first two sentences from Bill Chastain’s write-up […]

    Devil Rays 6, Tigers 5. If someone would have approached us and said “would you sign for being tied with the Yankees after 49 games?” We would have been idiots to say ‘no’, yet somehow being tied with the Yankees and 13.5 games behind the Pink Hats is not so […]

    The Hangover: Finally! Jae Seo Gets Some Run Support

    Devil Rays 13, Mariners 12.What is the over/under these days for runs needed by the Rays offense when Jae Seo is on the mound? 13 sounds about right. It is sad when your team has a 12-4 lead after 5 innings and you are still scared. Sure enough, Seo had […]

    Devil Rays 11, Rangers 8.Last night’s win marked the first time since August 23 of last season that the Rays have won 3 straight. That 3 game streak also came at the hands of Rangers at the Trop when Tampa Bay won the the first 3 of a 4-game set. […]

    Devil Rays 4, Rangers 3. Bubble Boy goes down with another hamstring injury. In the first inning Rocco Baldelli pulled up with a sore hamstring running to first base and had to be removed from the game. Is it us or is Rocco starting to look an awful lot like […]

    Orioles 1, Devil Rays 0.Ok, we have ignored this post long enough. Quite frankly (I hate when I quote Steven A.) we we weren’t sure if we would be able to write a “Hangover” today. Last night hurt on so many levels. Let’s count them: For the second time this […]
