    There has been a lot of talk about what the Rays need to add to the mix this offseason, with most pointing to right field. That got us to wondering how Rays right fielders performed this past season and what they need to produce in 2009. In 2008 Joe Maddon […]

    THE GOOD: Good game for Akinori Iwamura offensively. In the 3rd, Aki had an RBI single, but more impotantly, with 2 outs, he advanced to second base on Carl Crawford’s sac fly. That allowed Aki to score on BJ Upton’s single…Jason Bartlett made two amazing plays in the field. The […]

    THE GOOD: James Shields showed us that he is a winner last night. He struggled early without his best stuff and with shoddy defense behind him, but fought through it and still managed to give Joe Maddon 7 innings. For all the changes to the bullpen, the biggest reason the […]
