Since the Cavaliers have already matched their 2008-09 home loss total, some are already wondering if their high-profile acquisition of Shaquille O'Neal was the equivalent of attempting to put out a fire with Diesel fuel.

The Vulture is a Gamer

Many people, including myself, wrote off J.P. Howell as someone who could be a contributing member to the ballclub this season. Coming into this season, Howell had a career WHIP over 1.60 and has...

Ben Zobrist opted to AAA Durham as the Rays call up relief pitcher Grant Balfour. Hat tip to the always great Todd Kalas. Grant has a 0.38 ERA through 23.2 IP, while a K/BB ratio of 39/10.

Is BJ's Lack of Power a Problem?

Last season, BJ Upton became the superstar type of player that the team has waited for him to become. He hit 24 homeruns last year to assist him on his way to an .894 OPS. His breakout season has...

Price Set for First Start

10

David Price will make his first minor league start tonight at Vero Beach. The Clearwater Threshers will be in town to take on the Devil Rays. On an off night for the Major League team, what's better than going to check out our prized prospect? It is $1 beer night at Vero Beach, which should bring out a boisterous crowd to cheer on Price.

I would love to be a manager down the line," [Gomes] said. "I come across like just a friggin' caveman but there's definitely a method to the madness if you ever have the time to sit down and talk.

Coming into the season, we knew the team would be much improved but there were still some areas that were regarded as weaknesses. Even though Dioner Navarro had a great second half last year, his...

Zobrist Activated, Candy Man DFA

1

The Rays have activated utility infielder Ben Zobrist while designating Andy Cannizaro for assignment to make room. Hopefully the middle infield will continue it's great play to make Zobrist a non-factor as Cannizaro was, and we will see more of his wife at games than we do him.

Price is Back

David Price started an extended spring training game against the Phillies today. He allowed two hits (both opposite-field singles, we’re told) and a run in three innings, striking out four without issuing a walk. He threw 47 pitches.

Leadoff Solution

After scouring the roster and looking at outside options, I think I have found someone who I think could step in and fill the leadoff role for the team. As I have stated before, I do not see Aki...

This was the worst week of the season for the bullpen and unsurprisingly it was the week in which they were the most taxed. With Gary Glover and Al Reyes both on the DL, the team has been turning...

As early in the season the team has underperformed in many areas, one of the surprises has been performance of the bullpen.  This past week the bullpen was asked to handle plenty of work. The...
