    Evan Longoria Blindfolded Himself With His Own Helmet (GIFs)

    It’s hard enough to hit a Major League fastball when you have full use of both your eyes. I can’t even imagine what it would be like to stand at the plate and only be able to hear the ball wiz by you. Tampa Bay Rays third baseman Evan Longoria knows what it’s like, though. […]

    Entering Wednesday, the Tampa Bay Rays were sitting atop the AL Wild Card standings, one game up on the Cleveland Indians and two games up on the Texas Rangers.  And with both the Rangers and the Indians earning victories later that evening, the Rays would need a win against the Yankees in order to maintain […]

    Smartphones can do so many amazing things. They can send emails and texts, take videos and pictures, and provide access to the unlimited information out there on the internet. Oh, and apparently they can also delay a Major League Baseball game. Last night in Tampa, during the game between the Rays and Angels of Greater […]

    The Boston Red Sox have dominated the Tampa Bay Rays this season, having won nine of the twelve meetings between these two teams heading into last night’s contest.  But the Rays have been on a roll of their own as of late, as they entered the week with wins in five straight and a 17-2 […]

    Pitchers have had a tough time quieting the Toronto Blue Jays’ bats throughout the course of their 11-game win streak, as they have averaged 6.36 runs per game over that stretch.  However, there was one man who was up to the challenge of shutting down the Jays’ hot bats, as Jeremy Hellickson of the Tampa […]

    Earlier this season, the Tampa Bay Rays and nine other teams around Major League Baseball teamed up with Stand Up 2 Cancer and LucasFilms to hold “Star Wars Nights” at the ballpark. I have no idea if these events actually raised any money for cancer research, but we did get to see Darth Vader on […]

      On most occasions, Jake Shields’ complete-game, two-hit shutout performance would easily be enough to earn him “Stat Line of the Night” honors, but on Sunday, it wasn’t even the most impressive performance from his own team, thanks to B.J. Upton’s terrific outing at the plate. Upton was a force to be reckoned with, as he belted […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 8/23/12 — Alex Cobb

    Make no mistake about it.  Alex Cobb of the Tampa Bay Rays is no David Price.  Not even close.  But he may someday be a special talent like his team’s ace currently is, and yesterday’s game certainly appeared to be a step in the right direction. Cobb, 24, delivered what was probably the most impressive […]
