    The Hangover: Casey Fossum Ineffective In Return To Mound

    The Rays fell behind big in the first two innings and eventually lost to the Jays 8-5. The big blow in the boxscore was a grand slam by the big hurt. However, Rays starter Casey Fossum never gave his teammates a chance. He gaveup 8 hits and a walk in […]

    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 […]

    The Hangover: Jorge Cantu’s Days As A Second Baseman Appear Over

    It is cold and rainy here in New York. We will see if we get this game off in time. It is still to be determined if Jorge Cantu will ever play for the Rays again, but we can be fairly certain that he will never play second base for […]

    The Rays fell to the Yankees on opening day 9-5. The loss reminded us an awful lot of 2006. Scott Kazmir looked good at times, but threw way too many pitches and couldn’t get an out in 6th inning, forcing Joe Maddon to turn to his bullpen much earlier than […]

    It’s Opening Day! The Rays will field the youngest 25-man roster in baseball. Today, will mark Rocco Baldelli’s first opening day assignment since 2004. The Rays are actually 5-4 on opening day. The Rays and the Yankees have markedly different expectations entering opening day. Manny Stiles has posted his Devil […]

    The Rays made it official today as Jorge Cantu was demoted to Durham, making BJ Upton the Rays starting second baseman. It was probably the last we have seen of Cantu in a Rays uniform, as he has asked to be traded, stating that he “is not a minor league […]

    The Phillies beat the Rays 9-2 in Scott Kazmir’s final appearance before opening day. Damn, we hate losing to Philadelphia team in anything. So then we just go back and watch our tape of THIS game and we feel soooo much better. It appears as though we will need to […]

    Devil Rays Listening To Offers For Jorge Cantu

    Are we the only ones that find irony in the above picture? Sports Illustrated is reporting that the Rays are entertaining offers for Jorge Cantu. Moving Cantu would go a long ways to settling the Rays crowded infield situation. In the short-term, B. J. Upton would likely become the “most-days” […]

    This is why the Rays reporters bug the heck out of us. Here is an article about Elijah Dukes. The article itself is fairly benign. But early in the article Dukes has the following quote… Hopefully when I get that call saying I’m in the league, I’ll probably be about […]

    We have been perplexed for a while by the way Jorge Cantu wears his batting helmet. Is the helmet too big? Does he just have a really small head? Are his eyes light-sensitive? None of these seemed to make much sense. We then thought that it was possible that he […]
