    The Rays may surpass the Dodgers by the end of this series. What an impressive team. Getting rid of Archer is really working out for them, not to mention the Beeks acquisition.

    Yesterday I was worried because of this anemic batting order facing the two best Tampa pitchers (undecided by some of you and Snell); and yes undecided has a good repertoire.

    I know they're capable of coming back but I'm not exactly relishing the prospect of being 7 up after tonight with Snell going for Tampa tomorrow and a real chance of the lead being down to just 6 after the weekend.

    Alvarado reminds me of big Lee Smith. Physically.

    Whoever starts tomorrow’s games thread, it needs to be titled “Ooh, that Snell.”

    Maybe this is the bad streak every good team has along such long seasons, but teams that become champions always find ways to win games (Pats say hello).

    First real struggle stretch of the year, too bad it’s when NY is facing DOA clubs.

    Been on a huge Skynyrd tear since seeing the new Showtime doc and the passing of the great Ed King.

    Nuthin' Fancy here, Mook, just a basehit.

    Every time I glance up at a MLB game this weekend, I think I'm watching the little league world series. Hate these uniforms.

    If Devers is severely injured OK, but I think Sox need desperately his LH bat. By the way, why is Cora not alternating L-R-L-R as he was doing weeks ago? Against a team like Tampa that changes so many pitchers throughout the game it would be better to do so.

    Lyons makes these games at least 30% more insufferable.

    If the Yankees had held on to the 4-1 Sunday night game against the Sox earlier this month, they would have been down 7 1/2 after that game. After tonight the lead will likely be 7. So, it's taken the Yankees 3 weeks to make up for blowing one game.

    Thornburg is not the solution to any problems the bullpen has.

    JD with 2 doubles, Nunez had two singles.

    1 hit otherwise the entire rest of the lineup.

    Is Eovaldi really a good candidate for the bullpen coming off Tommy John. Can he pitch back to back days, for example.

    DD openly talked about it when he traded for him. So I'd say yes.

    After a rough start Rays are 65-48. Cash has to be considered for manager of the year (along with Cora)

    Damn Rays must think its 2011 or something

    His 3.36 MLB ERA would be better than a lot of MLB starters-relievers nowadays. But at 75, maybe Sergio does it better.
