Rays 3, Mets 2: Phillips activates airplane mode

Photo by Julio Aguilar/ Oh yes, they managed the win. Yes the did. Run support, two little words that we often hear attached to the New York Mets. The Mets need more run support. Why can’t the Mets provide Jacob deGrom run support? Well, in through the early innings of tonight’s game, the Mets scored the runs, and Rays fans were left wondering, “where is Tyler Glasnow’s run support?” Glasnow, excepting a particularly bad fifth inning, had a great night. Unfortunately, that one bad inning was all the Mets needed to gain the lead, and the Rays were simply unable...

How the Slider has Improved Tyler Glasnow’s Game

How the Slider has Improved Tyler Glasnow’s Game

Brian Fluharty-USA TODAY Sports It’s not enough to simply add variety. It’s how Tyler Glasnow is using his new pitch that makes it so good. Tyler Glasnow worked on adding a new pitch to his arsenal this offseason. The movement of the pitch is similar to that of a cutter and slider, which helped coin the name “slutter”. I will be referring to it as a slider, as that is how it is classified on Baseball Savant and Brooks Baseball. A little over one month into the season, how has it worked out so far? Why Did Tyler Glasnow Need a Third Pitch? In 2020, Tyler Glasnow...

Now the Rays get to take a week long trip to the west coast that will have them face off in a four game set against the Los Angeles Angels.

Rays 2, Athletics 0: Mike Zunino is good.

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports Back over the .500 mark we go! If you were strictly going by the scoreboard the first four and a half innings of this game might have looked to be a classic pitcher’s duel, but it might be more accurate to say it was a case of LOBsters and some semi-decent defense from both teams. This isn’t to say that Rays starter Tyler Glasnow and A’s starter Cole Irvin weren’t putting up capable innings, because they definitely were, but it didn’t feel like the game was about them. To lead off the first Canha reached on an infield single,...

TB-4 KC-1: Fleming, Luck Dragons, and Infield Pop-ups

Photo by Jamie Squire/ Fleming impresses his friends and family, and Rays get some good luck The start of the 2021 season for the Tampa Bay Rays has felt like luck hasn’t been on their side. The offense hasn’t been able to finish off rallies. The bullpen has faced numerous key injuries. The rotation, outside of Tyler Glasnow or Yankees games, has seemingly been prone to one disastrous inning per game. The thing with luck is, bad or good: it doesn’t last forever. Luck Dragons take flight The Rays offense tonight was able to put some pretty good balls in play....

Photo by Mike Stobe/ or, why Glasnow’s worst start of this young season might have been his most impressive Saturday we did not see Tyler Glasnow’s at his best. This was not close to Tyler Glasnow’s best game. Not of his career, or of his season, and not even of this week! But this early season day game at Yankee Stadium, this most likely forgettable start, this game showed us that Tyler Glasnow is ascending to the next level of pitcher. His final box score reads 5 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 4 BB, 7 K, 13 whiffs on 105 pitches. For those that watched it’s remarkable Tyler...

Rays 6, Yankees 3: Glasnow wobbles, but doesn’t break. Offense hits enough homers.

Wendell Cruz-USA TODAY Sports Glasnow struggles with command, but keeps the game in reach. The Tampa Bay Rays took on the New York Yankees as they look to extend their dominance in the head to head matchup. The Rays have won 14 of their last 19 matchups dating back to the beginning of the 2020 season including the playoffs. The Rays sent Tyler Glasnow to the mound coming off one of the most dominant outings I’ve seen from a Rays pitcher on Monday night against the Texas Rangers. The Yankees counter with Jordan Montgomery. Inning 1: Joey Wendle error pushes Tyler...

NYY vs. TB: Jordan Montgomery vs. Tyler Glasnow

Photo by Sarah Stier/ The Yankees will need to beat Tampa’s ace if they want to rebound from a poor showing yesterday. At some point, if the Yankees want to get going and get back into the (still early) division race, they’re going to have to beat Tampa Bay. They’ve struggled mightily in doing so up to this point, losing the opener of this series after dropping their initial series down at the Trop. If this were any other opponent, the game would not feel so boom or bust, despite the rough opening stretch that the team is on — but the Rays have proven to be an...
