    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 […]

    Devil Rays (66-96)Since when do the Rays need another outfielder with a history of leg problems and since when do the Rays need fewer experienced arms in the bullpen? The Rays claimed Chris Snelling off of waivers from the A’s. Jay Witasick was released to make room on the roster. […]

    Despite the losses on Friday and Saturday nights, there was plenty to be happy about this weekend if you a Devil Rays fan. First, is the re-emergence of Jonny Gomes, who has three home runs since being recalled from Durham last week. And despite losing four of their last six […]

    The Rays fell to Cleveland 4-3. You can tell that Joe Maddon wants his pitchers working deeper in games this year. For the second time this week a starting pitcher worked 7 innings, a rare sight in spring training. This time it was James Shields, who gave up 4 runs […]

    Normally we begin the day with The Hangover, but something has come to our attention that just couldn’t wait. Buried at the bottom of a longer article on the growth of the Rays as a franchise is a tidbit that made our jaw hit the keyboard. In what might be […]

    Anybody else think that Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito throws harder than Casey Fossum. Alito put on a Rays uniform and threw out the first pitch before the Rays-Phils games yesterday. [Insert cheesy “right”-handed joke here] The Rays suffered two more ugly losses during split-squad action, falling to the Twins […]

    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 […]

    Apparently this is turning into a regular feature on this site. Carl Crawford hyperextended his shoulder on Tuesday night diving for a ball. Even though he stayed in the game, he was a late scratch from last night’s game in Boston. He is listed as day-to-day. Crawford is the sixth […]

    Apparently this is going to become a regular feature on Rays Index. At first we joked about the curse when Julio Lugo and Luis Ordaz went down on opening day. Then we began to wonder when Jorge Cantu was injured. Then we started to get scared when Mark Hendrickson went […]
