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 dink and dunk his way toward a possible batting title, and working on creative profanity when J.P. Howell warms up in the bullpen, is about the extent of the excitement these days.

Though a waste of time, is anyone else wondering what David Price’s trade stock is about now?

The standings offer hope for the optimists, but common sense says football is here. Yeah, the Rays should avoid a sweep tonight and then head to the historically awful Mariners.

Maybe they’ll tease us all with one more allegedly meaningful series this year. Maybe.

    Keep trying to resist thinking that the M's have no reason to worry about their streak, cuz the Rays will be there soon. Sigh!!!

    Toronto comes to the trop 1st week in aug then Rays will be in 4th in the Division. How far back is Baltimore for Sept...could the Maddon ship sink to last place??

  3. Jimmy Delach says:

    Oakland can't sweep the Rays Tonight because they still have to play each other on Thursday.

    And yes, I fear we'll be the cure that ails the Mariners this weekend.

  4. Mike says:

    I will bet a 12 pack of Bud Light that we break the Mariner's streak...We will lose at least 1, if not 2 there.
