Nice to see the offense not pack in after one inning.  We might be able to hold onto this one ... knock on wood

Our starting pitching has gone a whopping 16 combined innings this series.  That sucks

This series was all the hitting coach's fault.

What is your point? I was wrong? Ok. You win. I was wrong.

Another awesome call by the umpires leads to Joe getting run since the guy blows the call and then rabbit ears it.   It's time for these idiots that want to escalate arguments by approaching the bench and/or player/coach start to be suspended.

Maddon was cracking me up on that one.  While the umpire did blow the call in epic fashion, I can't get on him for escalating the argument.  Maddon was giving him the business pretty good from the dugout.  It was pretty damn funny.

I may have missed some of it, but I just saw Maddon saying over and over "it didn't hit his foot" from the dugout and the guy ends up ripping off his mask, walking towards the dugout, telling Joe that's enough and giving the old "don't say another word" ultimatum.  Even then all Maddon really said back was "yeah it's enough".   I mean it wasn't even close to hitting the foot.  There have just been multiple really bad calls against us this year

Definitely an inordinate number.  Really bad umping going on in MLB right now.

Just what we needed.......

A down year for Mr. Price so contract negotiations will give the Rays more leverage to open up a contract extension after his nice Cy Young year. NICE

Let us pray, Price suffers a terrible year and the Rays opt to sign him long-term afterwards.

ps: Would anyone love to guess when the Rays will start their annual semi-long winning-streak?

These guys should be fired.  Not fined, not suspended, fired.

Tonight is reigning Cy Young vs. Cy Young - and it could be a 10-9 score by the way those fellas are throwing.

Cleveland just isn't a baseball town.  Time to move to Charlotte

Weird start from Cobb last night.  He was the first pitcher in baseball history to strikeout 13 batters in fewer than five innings.  A four strikeout inning, in which he had an Earned Run, was a big part of that.

The Rays are playing great baseball right now.  If not for those two games that the pitching staff gave up late leads vs. Toronto, they would be on an eight-game winning streak and only 2.5 games behind NY for first place.

Can't sneak up on anyone if you're announcing it!!! LOL - I agree.  If the pitching can keep abreast with the defense and hitting this is going to be fun...
