Rays top ChiSox 8-3.
David Price gets his 1 st win, but the story here was an exchange he had with HP Umpire Tom Halliomn.
The Rays' 8-3 Sunday victory was followed by controversy as Rays pitcher David Price claimed home plate umpire Tom Hallion cursed at him and Hallion denied it.
Price said as he was walking off the field after the 7th inning, Hallion told him to "throw the ball over the f-ing plate." Price said he hadn't said anything to Hallion, and that for Hallion to do so was "terrible.''
"For him to talk to me that way, no ...,'' Price said. "Something has to be done about that."
Hallion, however, told a pool reporter he did not curse and that Price was lying.
"I'll come right out bluntly and say he's a liar,'' Hallion said, voice raised. "I'm denying what he said I said, pretty strongly.''
Hallion said he presented a less offensive version: "I said, "Just throw the ball." That's all I said to him'
Price was informed of Hallion's reaction and stuck by his story, saying Hallion was the one lying.RELATED NEWS/ARCHIVESomeone give me the definition of a coward please
Someone please give me the definition of accountability...
That still raises a question why Hallion approached Price at all. Hallion acknowledged Price didn't say anything to him walking off the field, but that it was obvious he didn't agree with Hallion's calls.
"He might not have said anything but he certainly gave enough body language to insinuate that he was pissed off,'' Hallion said.
As for ejecting Jeremy Hellickson, who was among a number of Rays in the dugout reacting to the situation?
"He was told to knock it off, him and Morse (Moore) were at the dugout rail and I told them to knock it off,'' Hallion said, "And he thought it was okay for him to have his final comment, at which time he was ejected.''

UPDATE, 7:24: Here is some more from Price:
"I don't know what he thinks he heard, you can ask anybody that was sitting in the dugout and they all erupted as they should have when you hear an umpire speak to a player that way, something has to be done about that, and that's why i told you guys. That's terrible. If my own dad doesn't speak to me that way, some frickin umpire's not going to speak to me that way. He wouldn't say it to me off the field.'
Had he had trouble with Hallion before? "I dont even know his name,'' Price said.

Here's the video of the "incident" and the pitch fx of the call that Price was pissed about. Interesting fallout with the umpire calling Price a "liar" and Hellickson and Moore tweeting about it and calling the ump a coward and a liar in response. Would be nice to see an ump disciplined for baiting a player and making himself the center of attention for no good reason....but most likely the Rays top 3 starters will just get the fuck squeezed out of them for the next few weeks as retaliation.

Luke Scott activated from the DL.
Edit: Shelly Duncan DFA'd to make room for Scott.

It's early in the season and all, but games like last night's are rapidly convincing me that the Rays are going nowhere fast this year. This team cannot afford to blow many 7 run leads and expect to contend. They're just not going to out-hit folks often enough to squander an offensive outburst like that. The bullpen has been very shaky. Maddon got cute by trying to ride Rodney for a 5 out save, which was probably his best option and a good call, but just goes to show the state of their bullpen and a little bit of early season desperation setting in.
Posted 08 May 2013 - 05:29 AM
Rays give up a 4-1 lead and fall to the Jays 6-4. Frigtening scene whne JA Happ was hit in the head with a line drive off the bat as Desmond Jennings.

Posted 16 May 2013 - 05:40 PM
Alex Torres called up to take David Price's spot on the roster as Price goes on the 15 day DL.
Posted 16 May 2013 - 06:09 PM
Torres is most likely on his way to shore up the pen for the next few days. I imagine Archer will get the call to fill in for Price's starts, but it could be Odorizzi.
Posted 18 May 2013 - 05:44 AM
Rays nearly blow another lead but hang on to beat the O's 12-10.
Jeremy Hellickson goes to 2-2 in spite of allowing 8 runs in 7.2 innings. Joel Peralta gets the final 4 outs for his 1st save. Kelly Johnson goes 3 for 5 witha HR and 4 RBI. Yunel Escobar also had 3 hits and 3 RBI while Desomd Jennings drove in 2.

Tampa storms back with 6 in the 9th to beat the O's 10-6.
Matt Joyce goes 3 for 5 witha HR and 5 RBI. Ben Zobrist drives in 2 and Kell Johnson adds a solo HR Alex Torres throws 4 inning of shutout relief for the win.
Posted 19 May 2013 - 09:55 AM
Torres sent down to Durham and Jeff Beliveau called for a spare arm. Jake Odorizzi will make the start Monday per Marc Topkin.
Posted 19 May 2013 - 10:31 AM
Odorizzi, Archer and Torres are all prob ready for prime time. At some point they're going to pull the plug on Hernandez and slot one of these guys in. The bullpen will be amazing in September!
Posted 19 May 2013 - 05:39 PM
Matt Moore now 8-0 in Tampa's 3-1 win.
7 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 1 BB, 3 K. Fernando Rodney bounces back to earn his 8th save. Rays get solo HR's from Luke Scott and Matt Joyce. Desmond Jennings drove in the other run.
After the game, Beliveau was sent back down and Odorizzi was called up
Posted 20 May 2013 - 05:54 AM
With a typical Rays bullpen and 2012 David Price, the Rays would be leading the division.
Posted 20 May 2013 - 03:56 PM
Rays give up 3 in the 7th and 1 in the 8th to lose to Toronto 7-5.
Jake Odorizzi pitched OK in his 1st ML start (5 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 1 BB, 6 K). Josh Lueke takes the loss with a brutal stat line of .2 IP, 1 H, 3 R, 4 BB, 0 K. Evan Longoria drove in 2 while Yunel Escobar added 2-run 9th inning HR.

Posted 21 May 2013 - 11:54 AM
Peralta has been good and Rodney ok for the most part. McGee has been awful and the magic bullpen pixie dust the Rays use on all their retreads that become star relievers has seemingly worn off Farnsworth.

Even though it's early, Price's mediocre start and health is very worrying. He is integral to the Rays' future (not because he will be here for long, but because the team is dependent on his trade value being strong enough to soften the blow of his departure).
Posted 22 May 2013 - 05:33 AM
Rays hang on to beat the Jays 4-3.
The pen allowed a run in the 8th and and the 9th but managed not to cough it up. Alrx Cobb goes to 5-2 as he allows 1 run in 6.1 IP. Desmond Jennings and Kelly Johnson each homered and Luke Scott drove in 2.
Posted 22 May 2013 - 07:10 PM
Posted 23 May 2013 - 05:33 AM
Pen blows another 4-3 to Jays.
Jose Bautista goes 4 for 4 with 2 HR;s (including a game tying one against bRodney in the 9th), 4 RBI. He also gets the game winning single off Kyle Farnsworth. Best outing of the year by Jeremy Hellickson (8 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 1 BB, 4 K). Ben Zobrist and James Loney knocked in the TB runs.
