Joe is back with his postgame thoughts….

The common “and-what-if-they-make-it” chatter died down considerably while the Rays were sizzling through much of August, but now Joe’s back to that same line of thinking after today’s bats-challenged 5-3 loss to the Yankees.

Even if the Rays battle back over these final 17 games, it’s impossible to imagine they have what they need to compete for a World Series.

The Rays offered squat at the plate in the eighth and ninth innings today, with the added agony of B.J. Upton tanking two plays in a row in centerfield to give the Yanks an insurance run in the eighth.

At four games back of the final Wild Card slot, the season might just be on the line tomorrow.

Dead bats walking.

      How are the 2012 Rays losers of the year candidates? Compared to Toronto or Sox?

      They are both 12.5 games behind us?

      We are in the wild card race presently they are batting for the cellar.

      How can u post such utter garbage day after day here? Don't you have pride as a human to be proven a completely wrong with your statements.

      If you are in middle school I apologize sincerely however.
