Commented on Rays vs. Yankees GDT 1: Ol' man Sabathia on Apr 17 2014, 10:08p
Damn! Feels like this game is about 9-1.

Hey, don't knock a guy who has three hits this season with two HR's and a double.
Commented on Rays vs. Yankees GDT 1: Ol' man Sabathia on Apr 17 2014, 9:49p
S-Rod's would have only been a groundout to third if Sizemore was a real 1st baseman though.
Commented on Rays vs. Yankees GDT 1: Ol' man Sabathia on Apr 17 2014, 9:29p
Sizemore two and S-Rod two

Another soft tossing lefty

That ball was properly struck

The team AF puts together during the off season is usually the one that remains for most of the following year.
Commented on Rays vs. Yankees GDT 1: Ol' man Sabathia on Apr 17 2014, 9:19p
Those jobs usually go to veteran utility ML'ers who have shown an ability to hit some at the ML level.
Commented on Rays vs. Yankees GDT 1: Ol' man Sabathia on Apr 17 2014, 9:06p
Molina was 0-19 against Sabathia before his hit in the 3rd inning.
Commented on Rays vs. Yankees GDT 1: Ol' man Sabathia on Apr 17 2014, 9:03p
Let's be honest..how is a 28 year old guy who has only hit AAA pitching be expected to do the same against ML pitchers

"Pop up" made me the hitter I am today

Don't ever remember this team making a trade or a shake-up to spark the offense.

More like cost effective to this point.

Commented on Rays 1, Orioles 7: Archer and Offense Falter in Latest Loss on Apr 15 2014, 11:49a
Just a matter of time for more balls to be properly struck and for them to not find gloves.

And the Myers is striking a lot of balls "properly".

Now AF has another reason to hang on to Price through next winter (and maybe into 2015)
Commented on Matt Moore to have Tommy John Surgery on Apr 15 2014, 8:15a
Rays have plenty of mid relievers who can fill the void

Definitely an effective pitch

Middle relief has been saved.

I would hardly call S-Rod being 1-8 against lefties this season being above average
Commented on The Rays Tank: Cobb out four to six weeks on Apr 14 2014, 12:06p
Isn't that what Longoria, Myers, Jennings, Forsythe, S-Rod , Guyer and Hanigan are for?
Commented on The Rays Tank: Cobb out four to six weeks on Apr 14 2014, 10:47a - 1 reply
Pitching was never going to be the Rays problem
Commented on The Rays Tank: Cobb out four to six weeks on Apr 14 2014, 10:33a
Just need Bedard to pitch against teams like soft tossing lefties pitch against the Rays.

It would be amusing to hear from Maddon why he dropped one of his two best hitters down to the 7th slot today.
Commented on The Rays Tank: Duel in KC, Moore to see Dr. Andrews on Apr 9 2014, 2:00p - 1 reply
Did he see more fastballs or are pitchers just going to keep throwing him junk because they know he struggles with them?

And the experiment to bat him 2nd was...why?

And on another note..Myers banished to the number 7 slot today

Many teams probably use him to consult but officially, he is the Rays medical director.

All of the Rays bench players are going to suffer because of who they are.

Maddon will save that for after he's used up his challenges and wants to get the team riled up.

Framing basically says the catcher is getting a strike call on a ball that may be off the plate.

It also explains how they (Yanks and Sox) have managed to find themselves in the race despite their injuries.

BTW..the Rays rank 30 in baseball in the average days lost per year (600+) from 2010-2013.

Just as important is the amount of time and DL stints that the Rays, as an entire team, will experience this year.

They may be as inconsistent as the Rays and end up with the same RPG over the course of a season.

Rays have no trouble ending up with a yearly (or 6 year span) high wRC+ number. It is actually just an average compilation.

First in line if Loney or Longoria get hurt, IMO.

Snyder just got picked up by the Rangers

Hopefully that won't be true as Hanigan may be that 9th spot.
Commented on The Rays Tank: Less than one week until Opening Day on Mar 25 2014, 1:45p
It will be interesting to see how Hanigan does in the AL now.

Damn..he could mash righties too.

Snyder is actually a plus framer (3.3 RAA) out of all the guys still out there.

Wouldn't be at all surprised if the Rays signed a veteran catcher for organizational depth.

With at least 3 spots open on the 40 man roster now, Rays will have some additions this week.
