Is Stu the Reason the Rays Won't Draw Two Million?

The Rays just completed a three game sweep of the hated rival New York Yankees and also nearly sold out Tropicana Field for all three dates, drawing about 98K fans or about 97% capacity. This...


To Score or Not To Score

Here's a question I'd like to throw out to all you Rays fans. Yesterday in the bottom of the seventh inning with the Rays already up by six runs and the score 8-2 they were faced with a first and...


Who's On First?

As spring training winds down and the twenty five man roster is starting to take shape, my attention is now to focus on the opening series versus the New York Yankees here at Tropicana Field. The...


Take A Moment To Rosterbate

As the off season draws to a close and the date for pitchers and catchers reporting is in sight, i thought a fun inter-active thread would be to look at the 25 man Rays roster that comes north this...


The Time Is Now For Jorge

The other day i mentioned Jorge Posada as a player who could help the Rays in 2012. Tommy Rancel has also entertained those thoughts and now many reports have come out that the Rays are in fact...

Eiland is a Royal


[Added by Kevin: Dave Eiland, who was a special assistant in the Rays front office in 2011, was named the Royals pitching coach]


Casey Kotchman: Why All The Controversy?

I have been a member of this DRB community for four seasons. I have never found a player to be more polarizing than Casey Kotchman. And i'm not sure why. Here are some thoughts. From the day of his...


When It's OK To Use a Small Sample Size

Before i start let's make a few things very clear. This is not an endorsement of Casey Kotchman, whom has become a polarizing firgure in this community. Nor is it a slam on Evan Longoria, who i...

Soriano Blasts Off


Can We Walk?

Why is this Rays team struggling night after night offensively? Why is it that nearly every SP we've faced pitches deep into the game, when many times their history suggests otherwise? I've taken a...

C'mon, No Mention of Rays?


Ken Rosenthal takes a look at seven AL teams that could overtake the Red Sox this season. Seven teams....yet no mention of the Rays.


What a Difference a Year Makes

The other day i was mulling over the Rays opening day roster for 2011, and was surprised to see that most likely there will only be eleven returnees from the 2010 opening day roster.   Unless a...


Where Are They Headed?

Let me introduce myself for those who may or may not know me. I am a former long time fan, now observer of the Cleveland Indians. I am not a fan of Mark Shapiro and feel that the loyalty shown him...


Let's Talk Payroll

Most Rays fans and DRB members got the message from owner Stu Sternberg the 2011 payroll would be cut by about 30%. We here at DRB didn't take the position of the national and local media by saying...


Adrian Gonzalez to Red Sox, aka Rays season OVER

It seems as if the Boston Red Sox have traded for first baseman Adrian Gonzalez from the Padres for a slew of prospects. What does this mean to us Rays fans? Let's think about it. The Rays are the...


Should We Unite the Upton Brothers?

As we proceed into 2011 the Rays will see a very different roster, but the same needs still remain that have plagued this team the past several seasons. I'm speaking about the need for a RH bat,...


Should the Rays Retire Number 13?

We are all aware Carl Crawford has most likely played his last game as a Tampa Bay Ray. It has been an exciting and mostly tremendous nine year run. To refresh you of some of his accomplishments,...


An ugly look back

September 5 Lead BAL in 6th inning, bullpen implodes--we lose September 8 Lead BOS 4-0--Garza and pen implode-we lose September 10 Lead 8-1-Jays tie game--  we win on error September 12  We lead...


Homer poster of the year award

As the season draws to a close in what all of us hopes will be the Rays playing in and winning the World Series, i decided to reflect on this past season on DRB paying close attention to the GDT...


Attention please: Reid Brignac Short Stop come forward

Yesterday SteveSlow wrote a thread on the accomplishments of Rays young players Sean Rodriguez, Matt Joyce, Reid Brignac and John Jaso . He went on to point out in numbers how they have added to...


We have our very own One Hit Wonder

For those of you not familiar with the term one hit wonder it came out of the music industry in the late 50's and early 60's and as the phrase suggests, it described an artist who had but one smash...


The BP from hell is back

Glover is not a back end pitcher. Why is Hamell on the team, if he's never used. Howell back to his okd tricks. Madden out thinks himself again, He uses Wheeler for two batters? Look for a long...
