  • 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 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)

    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

    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 […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night – 09/17/09 – Wade Davis

    Total Pro Sports – It is likely a case of “too little, too late,” but the Tampa Bay Rays put on the type performance last night against the Baltimore Orioles that they could have desperately used over the past month or so when they saw themselves fall out of contention in the AL East and […]

    Tampa Bay Rays Rookie David Price Dresses In Drag

    Total Pro Sports – Although hazing may be frowned upon by many, when done in a tasteful manner it can be quite the amusing event.  The Tampa Bay Rays are the perfect example of this. While they didn’t take it as far as the Bandera High School cheerleaders, who smeared feces over their victim’s locker, […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night – 07/29/09 – Joba Chamberlain

    Total Pro Sports – Playing against a division rival with the opportunity to increase their lead in the AL East, the New York Yankees sent Joba Chamberlain to the mound and got just the type of performance they were looking for.  It was more than enough to assure the Yanks the victory over the Tampa […]

  • The Stat Line Of The Night – 07/23/09 – Mark Buehrle

    The Stat Line Of The Night – 07/23/09 – Mark Buehrle

    Total Pro Sports – This one was a no-brainer.  Yesterday afternoon Mark Buehrle took the mound against the Tampa Bay Rays at U.S. Cellular Field.  Twenty-seven of their players stepped into the batters box to face him and they all went down, one by one as he became only the 18th pitcher in MLB history […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night – 07/12/09 – Josh Beckett

    Total Pro Sports – On the final day of games before the All-Star break, Roy Halladay was named as the AL’s starting pitcher.  That seemed to put Josh Beckett out on the mound with something to prove against the Kansas City Royals and he did just that. leading the way in a Boston Red Sox […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night – 06/03/09 – Jeff Niemann

    Total Pro Sports – Maybe this is the turn around game for the World Series finalists Tampa Bay Rays.  They are now one game below .500 after handing a devastating 9-0 loss to the lowly Kansas City Royals.   You would think that with the season that the Rays had last year they would be better […]

    Scott Kazmir’s Offdays Include Cotton Candy

    Total Pro Sports – What better way to watch your team beat the hapless Orioles than doing so with a nice bag of pink cotton candy in your hand.  Now that’s Scott Kazmir’s idea of a perfect day off. Last pitching on Saturday, when he got the win versus the Red Sox, Kazmir is not scheduled to […]

    2009 MLB Previews: AL East

    Total Pro Sports – It is that time of year to get excited for the upcoming baseball teams. This year, not only having Spring Training starting, we also have the World Baseball Classic, which should be alot of fun. It would be nice though to see fewer guys pulling out of the tournament, but otherwise […]

  • MLB What A Great League…Ya Right

    MLB What A Great League…Ya Right

    Total Pro Sports – How embarrassing for baseball when a team has to pay a luxury tax in an amount that is greater than the lowest team payroll. The New York Yankees were hit with a luxury tax of $26.9 million today, a figure that exceeds the Florida Marlins team payroll of $21.8 million. If […]
