View from the Catwalks: Rays have an off day to think about what they’ve done

Photo by Greg Fiume/ The Spread of the Opener, Revisiting the Willy Adames Trade, and a Josh Donaldson/Tim Anderson Kerfuffle The Rays got through the week with a 3-3 mark, which doesn’t sound terrible until you consider the games were against the Tigers and Orioles. The Baltimore series in particular stung, as the Rays choked away leads in both their losses to the orange birds. It’s probably safe to say the Rays dominance against the O’s is over. They still sit in second place in the AL East, five games back of the Yankees. The Rays are off today, before hosting...

Orioles’ 3rd walk-off in 4 games beats Rays again; Elias on the wall, Harvey; Minor league update

Then, rain came, and 51 minutes […]

Rivalry Roundup: Red Sox win wild one, Rays lose wild one

Photo by Greg Fiume/ There were multiple late inning comebacks in games involving Yankees’ rivals on Sunday. Yesterday saw the Yankees drop both games of the doubleheader against the White Sox in frustrating fashion, ending that chaotic series. Despite taking those losses, the Yankees still remain at the top of the heap with the best record in baseball. As that was happening, their competition in the AL were playing some wild games. Let’s check in on Sunday’s action in today’s edition of the Rivalry Roundup. Cincinnati Reds (12-28) vs. Toronto Blue Jays (22-19)...


Rays 6, Orioles 7: Raining on my Paredes

Gregory Fisher-USA TODAY Sports The pitching and defense is unable to provide support, as the early lead slips away We had this one. It was right. there. Until it wasn’t. Le sigh. The Rays lost 7-6 to the Orioles because they couldn’t catch the ball, couldn’t make clutch pitches when they needed it, couldn’t get the runner in in extras. It didn’t help that they were playing shorthanded. Andrew Kittredge hit the IL, and wunderkind Wander Franco and on base machine Yandy Diaz were both out of the lineup nursing minor injuries. So who did we have? Well, let’s...

Rivalry Roundup: Alek Manoah shoves and the Sox stage a comeback

New York did its job on Saturday, defeating the White Sox 7-5 to move themselves to a dominant 29-10, but the others still had to do their part to gain some separation.

The Detroit Tigers are back on the schneid again after dropping the final two games against the Tampa Bay Rays during the week, then falling in the opening game of a weekend road series Friday night against the newly-minted Cleveland Guardians, 6-1. Tarik Skubal took a line drive to his shin, knocking him out of the game and sending yet another Tiger to the casualty ward, further decimating an already thin pitching staff that has been ravaged by the injury bug....

Aaron Hicks’ lack of production is starting to become an issue for the Yankees

The Yankees have played some of their best baseball in a while, and had a five-game advantage over the Tampa Bay Rays before Friday’s games. That doesn’t mean, however, that they don’t have any weaknesses. The Yanks have gotten solid play from most of their starters, but there is one notable exception: outfielder Aaron Hicks is badly struggling at the moment. The catching tandem isn’t contributing much...

The Rays won two out of three against the Detroit Tigers and head to Baltimore for a three game road trip.

Rivalry Roundup: Nick Pivetta’s unexpected dominance

Photo By Winslow Townson/ The middle Red Sox righty threw a two-hitter against Houston while the Rays and Twins each won in a breeze. The Yankees might have only scored three runs last night in Baltimore, but thanks to a workmanlike outing from Gerrit Cole and more dominance from Clay Holmes, it was enough for a 3-2 victory — their ninth in ten games and fourth in a row. They’ve now won nine consecutive series and sit at a frankly absurd 28-9. Keep it up! That’s what happened in the Charm City, but this is what happened elsewhere around the American...


Rays 6, Tigers 1: Isaac Paredes homers twice in dominant win

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports Another solid outing by the Rays as Paredes notched his first career two-homer game against the team that traded him. The Rays offense lit up again, throughout the game, despite Brandon Lowe getting put on the shelf with a back injury. Sadly, it’s worth noting the Rays offense might have benefitted early from an injury for Eduardo Rodriguez, who made it only one out before walking away with at trainer today. Small sample size, but Eduardo Rodriguez had a drop in velocity across his arsenal before leaving in first inning with head...

Rays 6, Tigers 1: Eduardo Rodriguez down with an injury as the hits keep coming

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports Another pitching injury, another miserable offensive performance, but hey at least Spencer Torkelson raked today. Eduardo Perez left in the first with an arm injury because all is suffering, and despite a nice day from Spencer Torkelson, the offense was lifeless again. Oh and former Tigers’ prospect Isaac Paredes launched a pair of home runs while the homerless Austin Meadows sat on the injured list with an inner ear infection as the Rays took this one 6-1 to win the series. So this one started off poorly and got much worse. A one-out...
