  • Who Is This Kid And Why Is He Getting So Many Gifts? (Video)

    Who Is This Kid And Why Is He Getting So Many Gifts? (Video)

    A few autographs on his hat, a ball, a signed bat and cotton candy?  Seriously though, is this kid dying?  What’s with all the gifts? Many of these baseball players are good guys and all, but when Derek Jeter and Johnny Damon are signing your hat, another Yankees player is handing you a ball, and […]

  • Here Is Another Cirque du Soleil Opening Pitch (Video)

    Here Is Another Cirque du Soleil Opening Pitch (Video)

    Three weeks ago the San Diego Padres invited a performer from Cirque du Soleil to throw out the opening pitch prior to their game against the Kansas City Royals.  It gained plenty of coverage on both sports blogs and sports news shows, and its success caused the Tampa Bay Rays to try something similar last […]

  • It Was Raining Glass In Tropicana Field Last Night (Video)

    It Was Raining Glass In Tropicana Field Last Night (Video)

    During their franchise’s 14 years of existence, the Tampa Bay Rays have never experienced a rain delay at home.  That is largely due to the fact that they have been playing within the enclosed dome of Tropicana Field.  But while the dome may be able to prevent any rain from falling onto the field and […]

  • The Stat Line Of The Night — 7/10/11 — C.C. Sabathia

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 7/10/11 — C.C. Sabathia

    Every team in Major League Baseball wants to head into the All-Star break on a winning note.  The Yankees were looking to just that against their division rivals, the Tampa Bay Rays.  It would not be an easy task, as the Rays sent All-Star pitchers James Shields to the mound, but luckily for the Yankees, […]

  • The Stat Line Of The Night — 5/5/11 — David Price

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 5/5/11 — David Price

    The Tampa Bay Rays’ David Price was looking to rebound following a season-worst performance where he gave up 12 hits and five earned runs over 4 1/3 innings during a loss against the Angels.  He did just that yesterday afternoon. The Toronto Blue Jays’ hitters had no answer for Price on this day, as they […]

  • The Stat Line Of The Night — 4/18/11 — David Price

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 4/18/11 — David Price

    The Tampa Bay Rays struggled out of the gate this season, losing their first six games and eight of their first nine, but they have since turned things around, and entered yesterday’s game against the Chicago White Sox with a 6-9 record.  David Price’s season can be described in a much similar manner – seven […]

    Joe Maddon Explodes, Ejects Entire Umpire Crew (Video)

    Times have been tough for the Tamp Bay Rays through the opening two weeks of the 2011 MLB season.  After a successful 2010 campaign that saw them win 96 games before losing in the ALDS to the eventual American League champion Texas Rangers, expectations were high heading into this season, but the Rays have managed […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night — 10/12/10 — Cliff Lee

    The Stat Line of the Night — 10/12/10 — Cliff Lee

    Cliff Lee has been one of the most dominant pitchers in baseball over the last few years, if not the most dominant, and he went out and showed it once again in a deciding Game 5 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays.  The Rangers acquired Lee for just this type of stage, so they could […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 8/8/10 – Brandon Morrow

    The Stat Line of the Night – 8/8/10 – Brandon Morrow

    In a year of no-hitters, it should come as no surprise that another pitching gem was tossed yesterday.  And of course what would a no-hit bid be in 2010 without somehow involving the Tampa Bay Rays.  Although Brandon Morrow couldn’t quite finish the job, his performance was still one for the books as the Toronto […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 7/26/10 – Matt Garza

    The Stat Line of the Night – 7/26/10 – Matt Garza

    The Tampa Bay Rays have been no-hit 3 times in the past year and 4 times in their short 13 year history.  That is a lot for one of the rarest events in sports to occur against you.  They were due to put on a no-hit performance of their own and they finally got one […]

  • Carl Crawford’s Groin Gets Picked-Off At First Base (Video)

    Carl Crawford’s Groin Gets Picked-Off At First Base (Video)

    Perhaps Major League Baseball should make jockstraps mandatory.  I know one guy who would likely be in favor of such a decision, and his name is Carl Crawford. During last night’s game between the Rays and the Orioles, Crawford found himself on first base, but would not be there for long thanks to a Jake […]

  • Longoria And Upton Have A Heated Exchange In Rays’ Dugout

    Longoria And Upton Have A Heated Exchange In Rays’ Dugout

    How would you feel if a guy with a stupid looking faux hawk told you how to do your job?  If your answer is “pissed off”, then surely you can sympathize with Tampa Bay’s BJ Upton following his heated dugout confrontation with teammate Evan Longoria. The lack of effort put forth by Upton on a […]

  • Define Irony: Tampa Bay Rays’ Player Stung By Actual Stingray

    Define Irony: Tampa Bay Rays’ Player Stung By Actual Stingray

    Should we consider this to be just another case of “When Mascots Attack”? In a rather ironic twist of fate, Tampa Bay Rays’ second baseman Sean Rodriguez was taking a stroll down the beach when he was stung by an actual stingray.  Rodriguez was with his two-year-old daughter, Sofia, behind their rental condo in Redington […]
