Postseason Roster/Rotation Thread

This is sort of a hybrid of what I'd do/what's realistic: vs. RHP C Jaso 2B Zobrist LF Crawford 3B Longoria DH Johnson RF Joyce 1B Pena SS Brignac (too bad Maddon will probably go with Bartlett)   v...


Rays Stuff On BA

Could fit in Minor League highlights, but: no. First an insider-only piece by Matt Eddy on Alexander Colome and Wilking Rodriguez(here's a snippet): Lichtenstein explained the Rays' development...


Darin Downs returns to the mound

Lefty Darin Downs made his first appearance since being hit in the head with a line drive in his second appearance with Montgomery last season. He spent time in an Intensive Care Unit in serious...


The Curious Case of Joseph Cruz

No, he's not aging backwards, but while doing my write-up of him(shameless plug!), I thought his stats were a bit perplexing: 2008: 54 IP 10.2 H/9 0.8 HR/9 2.3 BB/9 10.3 K/9  1.39 WHIP    3.17 ERA 2...


Relief/Closer Candidate: Brett Myers

Myers wasn't on the Phillies ALCS roster and almost certainly won't be on the World Series roster. The Phillies have enough arbitration raises(and possibly inking Jayson Werth to a long-term deal)...


Anyone going(or want to go) to the Monday afternoon game in NY

I don't have class Monday so if there are gonna be some other Rays fans there I might grab a ticket off StubHub or something and take the train up. Rutgers football is playing Cincinnati that day...


Off-day open Minor League thread(Hellickson pitching)

(I'm making this thread now because who knows when I'll wake up tomorrow)   Just because the Rays are off doesn't mean you can't root for an inadequate offense, since basically every affiliate has...

Jake McGee starts tonight in Charlotte


"Recent addition to the Stone Crabs roster Jake McGee (0-0, --) will make his first start of the season" Oddly enough, it's against the same pitcher Kazmir made his high-A rehab start against.


David Price and release points

His MLB debut, he didn't walk a batter in 5.1 innings against the Yankees: His release point was at or below the line, and strikes ensued. His next appearance was in relief against Minnesota....


Do pyth records correct themselves in-season?

Depending on who you ask, the Rays are either 4 or 5 games under their pythagorean record entering play on June 16th. Playing below a pyth record is generally attributed to luck, though I'm sure...


Rays MOD #3

Mock is this weekend, looking at HS catchers(Tommy Joseph, Max Stassi) and pitchers(I really like Garrett Gould) for the first round. Who do you guys like? And any 2nd/3rd round guys you'd like to...


So the VSL Rays have played 4 games...

If you remember, last year in the international signing period we have four guys bonuses over $100,000: SS Julian Morillo, SS Hector Guevara, C Omar Narvaez, and RHP Wilmer Sabala. VSL stats of...


Tampa Bay Rays MOD, take two

Alright, so here were some names thrown around last time(just straight copy/pasting, my thoughts are at the bottom): - C Max Stassi (Okay, highest probably gone) - C Luke Bailey (Despite TJ...


On umpiring(with GameDay pic goodness)

MinorLeagueBall mock draft

I'm the "scouting director" over there this year, and I figure posting here will help. One quick thing, I'd appreciate it if you guys could give your input over at minorleagueball(see the link at...


MOD: Rays

First things first, if anyone wants the spot of deputy just post and we'll see what we can work out.   The Rays pick 30th, 77th, and 108th. The system needs bats moreso than pitching, but picking...


Possible Bad News: Hellickson taken out after 2

Only threw 29 pitches and wasn't pitching poorly(1 run allowed), so I imagine it's an injury of some sort. He finished up the 2nd inning, the Biscuits scored 4 runs in their half, and then Brandon...
