    Hellboy was masterful shutting down Baltimore with a complete game four-hitter today. Savage control on just 97 pitches. So how long before the Rays shut him down for the season? He’s at 164 innings and, given the Rays history, it’s hard to imagine they’ll let him start a game past […]

    Yet another game tonight that makes you pound your head against the wall over where the Rays could be. It shouldn’t be so damn hard for the Rays to scratch out a few runs night in and night out and win a pile of games. Tonight at Texas was a […]

    The bullpen reared its scary head in Toronto, sans Kyle Farnsworth, and held on today to put the Rays seven back of the Yankees in the Wild Card chase. Obviously, the bullpen was more rested than any history. Then why did Joe Maddon pull J.P. Howell for Jake McGee — lefty for […]

    Another fun one at the Trop tonight with the Rays spraying the ball around, even Kelly Shoppach managed a double and an exciting foul ball in the 8-0 win. See what abolishing batting practice can do? Maybe that was it all season. The Rays were working too hard with Derek Shelton. Pretty […]

    The line is exceptionally neat and tidy for the Rays down the stretch after today’s series win in Boston. With 40 games to go, the Rays are eight games back of the Red Sox for the Wild Card spot. Sure, the grand-scheme chances look ugly, but the reality is the Rays have 20 […]

    It’s like one of those Christmas in August sales you see once in a while from cheesy car dealers. Surely this Rays outburst of 24 runs in three days — at home no less — is nothing more than a way to suck fans in to buy beer and popcorn and pad Stu […]

    Listen to Tampa Bay sports radio all day and you’ll hear everyone completely writing off the Rays season. Hosts have even been saying they’re so happy they don’t have to talk Rays anymore and can just settle into football. Hell, the esteemed curator of this site called the team’s “time of death” many games ago. But […]

    Even the legions of Rays pessimists have to feel a little hope that Desmond Jennings might make things interesting down the stretch. After repeated debacles, Jennings and his underlings came out today and spotted the A’s a five-run lead before punching them in the mouth with a 10-8 win. So nice to see Jennings take […]

    Tonight/this morning’s 6-1 Rays bend-over job had all the intrigue of a wee hours Weather Channel forecast. Maybe less. At least there were some dramatic yet painful losses the last couple of nights. Sure, Joe’s bitter and beaten down like every other Rays fan. Watching Desmon Jennings, and Casey Kotchman […]

    Joe’s gotta hang a lot of this absolute disaster of an extra-inning loss on Joe Maddon and the first-base umpire. B.J. Upton was on third with the bases loaded in the 10th inning and Sam Fuld steps to the plate with one out. What the hell are the odds of being […]
