    Angels 2, Devil Rays 1.This is what drives us absolutely nuts about the local coverage of the Tampa Bay Devil Rays. We stayed up late last night and caught every pitch of the Rays 89th loss of the season. We went to bed frustrated with the offense, but content that […]

    In case you missed the 9th inning of last night’s game…and we can’t understand why you wouldn’t be tuned in to the 9th inning of a late August 12-2 loss to Oakland…there were some minor fireworks. It happens. Last night, Juan Salas came in to pitch the 9th and immediately […]

    Devil Rays 6, Red Sox 5.Anybody else worried that the Rays closer next year will be 38 years old, with a history of Tommy John surgeries (emphasis plural) and throws 86 mph? Guess it could be worse. With only a few hours to go before the league’s new early deadline […]

    Rangers 9, Devil Rays 1. Jason Hammel deserved a few starts worth of buffer from criticism as he adjusted back to being a starting pitcher. After making 13 starts in Durham, Hammel was called up to the Rays and inserted into the bullpen. At first it appeared as though he […]

    Royals 12, Devil Rays 4. 5 innings, 100 pitches. When we look back on the 2007 season, that could be the opening line. 5 innings, 100 pitches. The rest of the rotation (outside of James Shields) has been awful, but that was no surprise. The bullpen has been vomit-inducing, but […]

    Marc Tompkin, of the St. Pete Times is reporting that the Rays have decided to select Vanderbilt pitcher David Price with the first pick of the draft. Funny. I wonder how it came to be that the St. Pete Times was the first to report this story? Great journalism? Good […]
