    [THE HANGOVER] The Rays Are Magilicious

    THE GOOD: Getting on base in the bottom of the 7th inning. The inning started with 2 walks and a hit-by-pitch. Another HBP with Aki Iwamura at the plate drove in a run. That was followed by Carl Crawford’s second career grand slam, making it 6-3 and effectively killing the […]

    THE GOOD: Give us a second….hold on….nope. We got nothin’. THE BAD: Losing 2 hours and 55 minutes of our lives that we will never get back. THE TELLING: The Rays drew 79,393 fans for the 3-game series against the Marlins. Last year, the Rays drew only 56,123 for the […]

    THE GOOD: The consensus seem to be that the Rays took the player with the best chance to be a superstar in the big leagues, in Tim Beckham. THE BAD: Can somebody please explain to us why Tim Beckham was wearing an old Devil Rays’ cap after he was drafted? […]

    [DIONER NAVARRO] Defending ‘The Fat Catcher’

    Yesterday, we ran two posts defending Dioner Navarro against the suggestion from one writer that Navi is a “middling” catcher and that if the Rays want to win now, they should draft Buster Posey. Tampa Bay Sports Blog thinks we went too far… This is getting out of control now. […]

    DRG here again to get you through the weekend. I can be reached here.. DEVIL DOGS WEBTOPIA… Marc Topkin is up to his over-dramatic ways. According to Topkin the Rays success is mostly due to having Eric Hinske, Al Reyes and Dan Wheeler. Don’t get me wrong. Those players have […]

    DRG here again to get you through the weekend. I can be reached here.. The Good: Matt Garza is still walking too many (4 last night) but he was better about getting ahead of batters. You can always tell when Garza is going to have a good night by his […]

    THE GOOD: Ben Zobrist getting the start. Everytime he did something good, we were rewarded with shots of his wife Julianna. That’s it. That was the only redeeming quality of yesterday’s game. THE BAD: Joe Maddon had some questionable (read: idiotic) pitching changes on Sunday. First he brings Dan Wheeler […]

    DRG here again to get you through the weekend. I can be reached here.. The Good: 2-out RBI and an offense that didn’t quit. 5 of the 8 runs were scored with 2 out and the Rays bats rallied from down 8-4 to tie the game in the 8th inning. […]

    THE GOOD: We know the numbers and we know there are other players that need playing time, but we hope that it kills Papa Joe Maddon to keep Jonny Gomes on the bench when he does. The first run of the game was all-Gomes. Started with a single, after which […]

    THE GOOD: Edwin Jackson. 112 pitches, 73 strikes. His 112th pitch was 97 mph. One pitch in the 8th registered 99 (although we are skeptical) and he was consistently 95+ in the 8th inning. No runs. 6 hits, no walks 1 walk. Great game, even if the Jays bailed him […]
