    THE GOOD: Something good? Something good? Guess we could say the Rays chances of making the playoffs are now 99.4% according to Baseball Prospectus and 98.4% according to CoolStandings…That’s good, right? THE BAD: Of course what the hell does it matter if the team makes the playoffs if they are […]

    FIRST INNINGA look back…The Rays were swept this past weekend and have lost 5 of 6…How worried are you? The Rays still have a 9 game lead over the Twins in the loss column. Of course, that is in large part due to the Twinkies playing as bad as the […]

    THE GOOD: The Rays have the 2nd best record in baseball, only a half-game behind the Angels for the best record in the AL…The Rays lead the Twins by 9 games in the loss column. Keep in mind that not only do the Red Sox have to pass the Rays, […]

    Game 3: Durham 3, Lousiville 2 (Bulls lead 2-1). Jeff Niemann saved possibly his best performance as a pro for when the Bulls needed it most. Niemann took a no-hitter into the 8th inning, and finished with 11 strikeouts to only 3 walks in 8 innings of work, allowing 1 […]

    Mrs. Professor is big on “Thank You” cards. Personally, we think the original “Thank You” should suffice. Like Jerry Seinfeld, we are tired of all this over-thanking. But since we prefer to be a part of society and don’t want to move to the Upper East Side, we better take […]

An anomaly? Apparently not. During last night’s game Todd Kalas was reporting from the upper deck in […]

    THE GOOD: Scott Kazmir. Yes he walked 5 batters. Yes he only worked 6 innings. But he did pitch 6, 1-hit shutout innings against a $100 million lineup. Not bad. All over the country last night, Mets fans cried just a little. How much fun would it be to see […]
