    6/17: Take It Easy

    Although we will be here over and over again...11 out of next 27. I like hanging out with you guys, but this sucks. Although maybe better to get those games out of the way ahead of the trade deadline when you add Paul Bunyan and 1998 Mark McGwire.

    2019 Rays: Yandy Diaz is bigger than you

    I just saw that. Really awful. Top, top prospect who was about to break into major league rotation and then 2 season ending surgeries and you have to wonder if he has any future now. And people wonder why these guys take the team friendly early extensions.

    Kimbrel to Cubs

    Kimbrel on decision to sign with Cubs over Rays. Ouch. “One thing that’s important to me … as well is being able to play in front of a fan base that is as passionate about this game as I am. I did get to experience that in Boston. And it’d be hard to leave that kind of passion each and...

    6/7 vs TB

    Usually they pull Chirinos earlier than this, but, with 2 bullpen games scheduled for the DH tomorrow, getting 8 innings out of him and keeping the pen rested is huge.

    MLB Draft Game Thread

    At #22, Rays took the "fastest player in the draft" -- Greg Jones from UNC Wilmington. Currently a SS but maybe turns into a CF. The second coming of Carl Crawford, except with a good arm???

    5/31: Sale at Happ

    Rays have second-half pitching reinforcements coming in DeLeon, Honeywell, Banda and Mckay. Mckay also DHs but his bat seems to be lagging his arm. Glasnow will be returning, too. Nate Lowe and Solak are AAA bats who will probably see time later this year. Arroyo just got called up and is going...
