    The Tampa Bay Rays are like your grandmother. They never throw anything away unless they absolutely have to. But what if that “anything” is costing the team wins? Marc Topkin writes that if Pat Burrell continues to struggle, at some point the Rays will cut their losses and cut Burrell […]

    The GBT – The Good, The Bad and The Telling sandwich, where The Bad is nice and lean and the The Telling is ripe. THE GOOD: Blackout. At least many of us didn’t have to watch that crap. Thanks FOX! THE BAD: Schedule. Thanks to 2 off-days in the first […]

    Ahh Milton Bradley. This image comes to us via Lookout Landing, and we first saw this story at Big League Stew. What we love is that Bradley doesn’t even do the “pretend to scratch my head” routine. Nope. He is not even going to pretend that he is not an […]

    There has been some discussion recently about the Rays batting lineup so we decided to look at the issue a little closer. We used the projected stats for the Rays hitters using the CHONE projection system found at BaseballProjection.com. We then submitted the Rays projected totals to the lineup analysis […]

    The GBT – The Good, The Bad and The Telling sandwich, where The Bad is nice and lean and the The Telling is ripe. THE GOOD: Mike Ekstrom. Ekstrom made one final case for the final bullpen spot by working 3 scoreless innings allowing just 1 hit and striking out […]

    Every team goes through “Picture Day” during spring training where all the players and coaches get all dolled up in their regular season uniforms and have their pictures taken by the professionals. Here is a link to Getty’s pics of the Rays. But before you go look at the entire […]

    Pat Burrell Is Bored Playing For The Rays

    With the Rays facing the Phillies yesterday, it was to be expected that the Philadelphia media would catch up with one of the heroes from the 2008 WFC* Phillies squad. And while Pat Burrell chose his words somewhat carefully, it sure sounds like playing for the Rays bores the crap […]

    In 2008, Pat Burrell was inducted into a Hall of Fame and it had absolutely nothing to do with his major league career or that night he spent in Channelside. Nope. It was the University of Miami inducting The Bat into their Sports Hall of Fame. The Fightins has the […]
