    Playing A Little Pepper… With a win tonight, the Rays would move past the Red Sox by percentage points in the standings, although they would technically be tied and the Sox would still be up by 1 game in the all-important loss column…Sean Rodriguez leads the Rays with 5 home […]

    Playing A Little Pepper… Yes, the Rays are “just 6 games back in the AL East.” But more importantly, they have the second-worst record in the AL and they are just 2 games ahead of the god-awful Astros. The A’s have the best record in baseball…Evan Longoria is batting second […]

    Playing A Little Pepper… If you were hoping to see Joe Maddon mix up the lineup tonight against the lefty Tommy Milone, rejoice! Evan Longoria is batting second and Wil Myers is leading off. For those of you hoping to see Logan Forsythe on the bench, well, I’ve got some […]

    Playing A Little Pepper… Prior to tonight’s game, David Price will compete against Angels infielder Luis Jimenez in a cow milking contest. I did not make that up…Since 2008, the Rays have hit 24 walk-off home runs…Yunel Escobar’s error last night was his 7th of the season, match his 2013 total. […]

    Playing A Little Pepper… Ben Zobrist was placed on the DL today after dislocating his thumb yesterday. Cole Figueroa was promoted from triple-A Durham. Figueroa is a left-handed hitting infielder who can play 2b, 3B, and SS. He even played a little in the outfield last year suggesting the Rays think […]
