    In the face of legions of Rays fans proclaiming the death of the 2011 Rays after Wednesday’s anemic 2-0 loss to the Yankmees, Joe must urinate in the face of such negativity. It’s way to early. It’s not too early to bang one’s head against the wall repeatedly watching the Rays try […]

    Maybe Joe Maddon doesn’t think these games against the Yanks are as important as the fans do. Alex Torres in the ninth on Monday, Dane De La Rosa tonight. Joe’s got nothing against these kids, and De La Rosa’s got a phenomenal story, but there’s a reason the Rays are […]

    The dome demons came through tonight! Curtis Granderson losing a sure pop out in the seventh was a beautiful thing. Yet another opportunity for the national talking heads to pile on the Rays. But screw’em. Finally the Rays got a few breaks — and some smart baserunning — to go with […]

    Before commenting on this epic loss, Joe’s got two questions: Where was the on-air ESPN outrage at Marco Scutaro intentionally throwing his back in the direction of Kelly Shoppach as he zeroed in on the foul pop to end the Red Sox 11th inning with the bases loaded? It barely got a replay. […]

    No need to jam your finger down your throat after this loss, just turn on BSPN in the wee hours and watch the JeterFest repeat itself over and over and over.  Sure, Derek Jeter deserves the accolades for reaching the 3K mark, but it’s hard to stomach that he essentially […]

    Twelve runs on 14 hits and three homers for the good guys today. That’s like a four-game home series all in one afternoon! One can only hope Evan Longoria’s homer and three hits, plus the defensive sparklers, launch something sustainable. Before the game on WDAE-AM 620, Joe Maddon was peppered with […]

    Brian Duensing? Really? What was the likelihood of that guy dropping a complete game shutout on the Rays? Sheesh. Justin Ruggiano’s double-play ball with the bases loaded to end the first inning was enough to drive any fan to the beer cooler, but Joe never would have believed that would be the day’s big excitement in […]

    So Joe Maddon takes Justin Ruggiano out of the freezer against a right-hander and he drives the nail through the Redbirds Saturday night with a two-run hower and turns in a Sam Fuld catch in left field. Very sweet. Despite Casey Kotchman’s three-run double before Ruggiano’s blast, Joe was most fired […]

    Today James Shields paid for his mistakes, unlike in his past few starts. Sure he wasn’t his “complete game” best, but he was still pretty damn good as the Rays lost the series to the Reds. If Evan Longoria doesn’t run like Prince Fielder, maybe that bottom of the ninth looks a lot […]

    It’s great baseball. It’s painful baseball. It’s Rays baseball. Joe admits to being in a funk lately. Joe sees the Rays struggling to plate runs and hit for average — with no help on the horizon — and his stomach is in knots. Today was such a classic — eight […]
