When you have your own social media department shooting off Tweets which show off the lack of stability in your pitching staff, you know you are in a bad place. That was the case with the Tampa Bay Rays this weekend as their social media folks Tweeted out a very sad stat about their pitching.
What was he doing in there? I never know what he’s doing in there? Rays closer Fernando Rodney has a lot of time on his hands during games, so its understandable that he could accidentally lock himself in the dugout bathroom. Rodney did just that Friday night in Oakland. The Rays had to put a
David Price donned this Vanderbilt uniform and equipment to express his readiness for his alma mater’s football season. Got to say he kind of looks like a ball player in that thing. Price said his position would be long snapper, but we think he might have some quarterback in his future. [MLB]
As a sporting society we are conditioned to hearing the same, tired cliches night after night. That is why we gobble up moments like the one Rays’ Pitcher Chris Archer gave us tonight. Archer, who was the AL’s Pitcher & Rookie of the Month in July, has struggled in his past two starts. Tonight he
The Tampa Bay Rays fooled the Dodgers in the fourth inning Saturday afternoon with the classic hidden ball trick. Runner Juan Uribe had his head down on third base, allowing the Rays to toss the ball right by him to Evan Longoria, who only had to wait for Uribe to step off the bag to
Luke Scott of the Tampa Bay Rays has one of the more interesting haircuts in the big leagues, and you can see why below. To be honest, I can’t even remember the last time I have seen anyone over 13 years old have a rat tail. To each his own… [KD Kennedy]
Not only was that home run in the first inning against the Giants a monster shot, but Tampa Bay Rays rookie outfielder Wil Myers looked unimpressed after hitting it. His facial expression and bat flip say it all, as if he’s thinking “Okay, when do we start the hard stuff?” Myers is putting together an impressive
Rays pitchers Chris Archer and Fernando Rodney seem to be having a weird chat in the dugout. We’ll never be sure of what the topic of conversation is here, but can let our imaginations explore the possibilities. If only these guys could be miked up during games. [Raysindex]
Carly Rae Jepsen, Canadian’s one-hit wonder singing sensation, was asked to throw out the ceremonial first pitch Sunday at the Rays game and it did not go well for anyone. Check out the absolutely awful pitch she launched, and the reaction which accompanied the atrocity. Good game, good effort. [GIF’s via Cork Gaines]
Rays’ pitcher Alex Cobb got nailed by a comebacker off of the bat of Royals’ Eric Hosmer and it was as scary as it gets. As you can see from the video Alex did his best to avoid being hit but the line drive came at him too quickly. The Rays released a statement saying
The Tampa Bay Rays wasted no time in capitalizing on the latest Tampa Bay Buccaneers signing, as they had Darrell Revis throw out the ceremonial first pitch against the New York Yankees on Monday. The Rays are having noted attendance issues, just averaging 22,634 fans a game for their nine home games so far this season,
This one isn’t really even a good attempt. I like the direction they are going: Diet Pepsi and Beckham pulled it off, and Lebron and Powerade’s full court shots video was decently interesting. This one just falls short. Decide for yourself if you like it or not.
