In the last two segments of this on again, off again series I took a look at a couple of trade targets that were probably a little bit unrealistic. The Rays probably aren’t going to trade what it takes to get Adam Eaton, and I don’t know that San Diego is even looking to move […]
The Tampa Bay Rays face a very real challenge this coming season that is slightly different from those they have faced in the past. The team has done well to rebuild their farm system to have potential top-end players like Willy Adames, Brent Honeywell, Casey Gillaspie and Jake Bauers. Not to mention the recently graduated […]
The Rays have rarely had what you would call a starting-caliber catcher throughout the nearly twenty years of franchise history. There have been some guys that have had good halves like Dioner Navarro in 2008 or guys that have been pretty good overall with drastic splits between defensive and offensive value like the first two […]
It is no secret that Steven Souza Jr. often seems caught in the middle. The non-swing at a borderline strike that goes against him always sees him just about to pull the trigger without the execution. Like many batters he’ll often get stuck in a place where he is a touch late on the fastball, […]
Despite their record the Rays have mostly looked like a .500 team this year. That’s not homerism, well maybe a little, but take out the stretch where their outfield consisted of two the dogs from the Cowboy Monkey Rodeo and a wad of gum filled with sunflower seeds and they’ve mostly played to that record […]
There are so many things that I would like to say on the topic of the draft, and the offseason, as well as, next June should prove to be fertile ground to plant these seeds. Knowing that there is plenty of time to nibble at this elephant I wanted to quickly look at an overview […]
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 […]
