    Postgame Shot Of Joe: Hat Tip To Beckett

    As much as it pains him to the core, Joe has to give it up to Josh Beckett for his 1-hit, complete game shutout of the good guys. What are you going to do or say? The guy’s got a 1.86 ERA and had total command– plus some friendly umpiring. The […]

    So when’s the payback coming for Kevin Youklis? The guy has run to first base how many times in his eight seasons? To break inside the baseline and spike Casey Kotchman at first in the ninth is miles from acceptable. Nobody’s going to tell Joe that wasn’t intentional. Total BS at the […]

    The Rays bats came alive!  Well, sort of. Three runs scratched out in the second inning and a collective whimper the rest of the way. But it was enough for a W. We’ll take it. Johnny Damon in the leadoff hole seems to be working out. What a novel concept. He’s never hit […]

    Bring on Justin Masterson every day. The Rays have no problem smacking around the Indians’ stud starter. This time it was in front a very healthy home crowd of almost 25K. Joe even had to wait a fair amount of time on the beer line. John Jaso almost tagged Masterson his first […]

    Coming off the David Price masterpiece, Saturday’s unraveling against the Tribe was thoroughly frustrating. From the crappy strikeout call against Johnny Damon to Kelly Shoppach tossing his bat in the stands — dude can’t hit, now he can’t even hold the bat — to sloppy defense and 19 runners left […]

    Yeah, the Rays lost 6-3 in Detroit. And maybe it was just a run-of-the mill Monday night loss in May for a first-place team, but for Joe it was especially brutal. Bases loaded for Felipe Lopez and Kelly Shoppach with a rookie first-timer on the mound in the fourth inning, and […]

    If there’s some sort of goofy top-20 list of Rays greatest victories, Monday’s dramatic comeback urination on the Yankees has to get strong consideration. Talk about a game that looked lost, with David Price getting abused and the Rays down 5-1 off a weekend of very quiet hitting. Just Curtis Granderson’s long […]

    Joe was drinking a touch of Andy Sonnanstine Kool-Aid (if there is such a thing) after former big-reliever and self-proclaimed Rays fan Tom Niedenfuer was on local sports radio last week saying fans should expect more from Sonnanstine in his second start. Niedenfuer babbled about how the least scary American League pitcher had his arm strength […]

    The whole point of this column is to offer a little instant reaction to the Rays game. But frankly, all Joe can do at this point is stand and applaud. What the hell else is there when your team’s on a 22-8 run and the starting pitching is a step […]

    So much for the Indians being dominant at home. Now they’re just another team on their own turf that couldn’t handle the alone-in-first-place Rays. The ridiculous run by the good guys now moves to 21-7, after today’s rubber game saw the Rays deliver another hit parade and land on the right […]
