    Playing A Little Pepper… The Rays and Red Sox are scheduled to play a double-header today after last night’s rainout and the Rays don’t sound happy about it. There will open dates that could have been used and with the Rays starting pitching in disarray, a game later in the […]

    Playing A Little Pepper… If we assume the catcher platoon to be a single player, the most common lineup last year was used just 5 times. Tonight’s lineup will be the sixth time it has been used this year in just 27 games…Erik Bedard will start for the Rays tonight. […]

    Playing A Little Pepper… As of right now, it is not raining in Chicago, but there is rain coming. The good news is as of now, radar makes it look like there might be a slight delay to the start of the game  and then there is about a one-hour […]

    Playing A Little Pepper… Joe Maddon once again going with his recent go-to lineup, only with Matt Joyce in left field and David DeJesus at DH…With a game-time temperature of 36-degrees, last night in Chicago was the second coldest game in Rays history. The only colder game was a mid-April […]

    Playing A Little Pepper… Let’s just pretend last night’s game never happened. Among the things Joe Maddon is good at is being able to treat a game like last night, or being no-hit, just like a 6-2 loss that the Rays were never really in. I can’t recall if it […]

    Playing A Little Pepper… Tonight’s lineup (see below) is becoming the go-to lineup for Joe Maddon with the only change being Matt Joyce and David DeJesus alternating DH and left field…Rays starting pitchers have pitched 5 innings or less in 8 of last 10 games, the worst streak for the […]

    Playing A Little Pepper… Ricky Nolasco will start for the Twins which could mean a big game for Matt Joyce. In his career, he is 3-6 with 2 home runs off of Nolasco. Interestingly, Logan Forsythe is not in the lineup, despite being 3-3 with a home run against Nolasco…The […]

    Playing A Little Pepper… Ben Zobrist will start in the outfield tonight for the second time this season. Logan Forsythe will start at second base. Forsythe has been questionable at best in the outfield and he will likely start playing more second base when Joe Maddon wants to get him […]
