Brad Boxberger was on the mound Tuesday for the Tampa Bay Rays. Boxberger was almost certain that the night would end with a win. But as he was pitching, confrontation reared its ugly head.
Danny Farquhar has been on the RDU to TPA Delta Shuttle quite a bit this season, but has been up to stay since August 7th. However, this time around, something has changed.
Your Tampa Bay Rays pulled one out yesterday that I struggle to call entertaining. The game featured no pace, saw a small army of pitchers, and would have been close to four hours if not for a bit of cruise control in the later innings. Dylan Bundy showed off some decent stuff, but he struggled […]
After a couple of inspired efforts from the boys in blue it looks like Uncle Buck is about to extend the Rays a bit of mercy. The Orioles have a championship-calibre lineup, no doubt, but today you’ll get to see some other guys that might be jockeying for a spot on their potential post-season roster. […]
Yesterday’s result was pretty predictable as I pointed out. The twist was that nobody saw Ubaldo Jimenez figuring it out after giving up three in the first. The runs? Those make sense, but he was able to finish the game without giving up another. The Rays went on autopilot directly into the mountain. Longo left […]
With expanded rosters in September the model becomes a little less useful, because there’s no real practical way to incorporate the huge benches and bullpens that you see this time of year. I think it’s still pretty solid in this form, but that little bit of extra information has now been squeezed out. From here […]
Your Tampa Bay Rays pulled one out late yesterday as Evan Longoria went yard to give the team the lead. It wouldn’t have mattered, however, with the laserbeam shot that Luke Maile drove over the monster for a two-run homer that tied it up a little earlier. This all came in support of a fine […]
I tried to warn folks not to fall in love with Matt Andriese. His underlying numbers were edging in the wrong direction pretty much linearly as a starting pitcher, but they wanted to hold on to the initial impression. Last night was the nail in the coffin for those folks. I think Andriese could be […]
What a thumping the boys put on the Astros yesterday as Matt Duffy got his first homer as a Ray and Big Swingin’ did that thing he do to break it wide open. Oh and guy that should have problem played a lot more this year, Nick Cranklin, also bagged a pelt. This is starting […]
