    Thursday night’s game will now be known as “The Game We Do Not Speak Of.” Carl Crawford made up for it when left fielder Josh Rabe played CC’s single into an inside-the-park home run in the Rays 4-2 win over the Twins. Scott Kazmir did his part and out-dueled the […]

    “stomach-punch” game. Carl Crawford hit a double in the 9It’s funny but sad. Losing a lead in the 8th or 9th inning should be the worst way to lose a game. The Devil Rays bullpen blows so many leads late in games, that when they do, it is never very […]

    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 […]

    Courtesy of Paul Lukas of Uniwatch here is a shot of Akinori Iwamura wearing Oakley Thumps, with built-in MP3 player during warm-ups. Don’t look now, but the Rays have all of a sudden won three of their last five. Yesterday’s 7-0 victory over Cleveland was their best all-around performance of […]

    The Rays rallied from down 3-0 pull out just their third win of the Spring 5-4, in one of two split-squad games. In the other game, the two pitchers that appear to have a leg up for the final spot in the rotation, each tossed three innings in the 6-0 […]

    While many major league teams wear special green hats and/or uniforms on St. Patrick’s Day, the Rays actually chose to wear less green, going with a white cap with green bill (Another image is below). The players also wore their pants just below the knees in a welcomed old-school fashion. […]

    The Rays lost again. This time to the Pirates 5-2. There were two big story lines. What may be three-fifths of the rotation after the all-star break, Scott Kazmir, Mitch Talbot and Jeff Niemann all struggled and surrendered runs. The other big story was Dioner Navarro who strained a hamstring […]

    We are a little late today, but sometimes, “The Hangover” feature really is a hangover. It took Scott Kazmir 41 pitches to record four outs in the Rays 6-5 victory over the Jays yesterday. Kaz is still young but throwing too many pitches is the only thing that is standing […]
