Bad night - again.  Now to win the last two... fingers crossed.... bats need to reawaken and have at'em

Big win last night.  Battle back twice to tie and then win it in the 12th.   Top WC spot as of today.  Going to have to put together a strong finish to outpace the Indians

Great win.  Now let's see Moore beat Darvish.

At least the Rays were fun to watch.  And that pop fly in the ninth is why the stadium is looked at as a joke in MLB circles.  Ridiculous.

The team is getting hot again at the right time.

Great win against the Orioles today. Go Rays!! At least one of our teams will be a postseason contender.

Archer vs. Chen in the afternoon game, going for the rare 4-game sweep.

Maddon is one of the best. Hope he never leaves the Rays.

It has been soooo interesting watching the ebb and flow - now - no more ebbs... damn it.  And yea, Maddon is a heckuva manager

That might be what Maddon is best at, managing those ebbs and flows of a long baseball season.

Yep, he provides a constant for the players which I think helps them avoid huge negatives for the most part.  I agree with the 'interest' in line-ups, limits on pitches, and everything else that can strike folks as odd - I played well into my 20's and he drives me nutty at times.  But it works for his teams and his players.  He is a treasure imvho

It is especially helpful with the youth of the team and the way the team is kind of "thrown together" at times.  The mix and match is new age and I think has helped over the years give us the best chance at winning when the team is so limited in resources
