Poor Matt Moore. By moving to the bullpen on Tuesday, Moore was all of a sudden low-man on the service time pole. That means he was in charge of the bullpen snacks kept in the Dora bag (right).


  • Let’s start today with something that might cheer us all up. Some A-Rod Schadenfreude! [Business Insider]
  • One player jokingly (we assume) said they would file a grievance if Matt Moore starts the 2012 season in the minors. Anybody want to guess which player said that? Our money is on David Price. [@JeffPassan]
  • Josh Hamilton apologized to several members of the Rays staff on Tuesday for letting them down during his time in the organization. [Big League Stew]
  • Here is an even-handed take on the Rays attendance. Caple doesn’t bash the fanbase, but says that the fans need to do a better job. [ESPN]
  • And here is “Mike and Mike” bashing the attendance problems. While it is easy to get upset at their lack of knowledge of the situation, we have to realize, this is exactly how most fans feel about baseball in Tampa Bay. [ESPN]
  • On the home plate collision with Sean Rodriguez, Mike Napoli swallowed a mouthful of tobacco. [Big League Stew]
  • At first this bothered us. Then we found out they did the same thing for the Red Sox set to the movie, “The Departed.” [downtownstpete.com]
  • Obviously the Rays are out of it now, but here is a cool infographic comparing the playoff teams. [Grantland]
  • There is always next year… [Babes Love Baseball]

    I think the Rays need to apologize to Hamilton..I think after all the years, time and money the Rays spent on him they threw him away as being useless for peanuts...But thats ok he has been making them pay for it ever since..They can't/won't beat him...
    Tell Caple the fans Have a job...ask... if he can suggest how to get people to the stadium who don't have jobs..

    Cork: Where is your thank you email from Stu Sternberg? Oh that is right, this site doesn't swallow the party line blindly and while we all pull hard for the Rays, there isn't blog-wide worship of Sternberg's every move here . So maybe you don't get those, unlike the guy who writes for DRays Bay and the St. Pete Times and worships Stu.
