I have three small children so, Sunday nights are generally to peace and quiet in my house (at least until Mad Men starts). Because of that, I don't often watch ...
Lets start with congratulations to David Price. In fact, lets add congratulations to the Rays’ crack PR staff for helping ensure that the Cy vote didn’t come down to established market vs. “small” market. There is more to say about Price’s win but I am not going to be the person to say it. After [ Read More ]
The Times has a blurb this morning in the business section about a news Rays ballpark. Apparently, Chuck Sykes has gathered a group of industry leaders that will publish a report evaluating options for raising the estimated $500MM-$600MM needed to build a new yard for our boys, regardless of where that yard is located. Unfortunately, [ Read More ]
At long last, it is World Series time. There is plenty of winter ahead. Plenty of time to talk about what the Rays should do. Plenty of time to worry about what the Yankees and Red Sox do (John Farrell? Seriously? I know he is a Boston guy and appears to be a decent manager [ Read More ]
Last night was one final knife. One more great pitching performance squandered. Lets not talk about. Because there are more important things. I’m not ready to move on to what went wrong. And I can’t bring myself to think about what we do now. Mostly because the body is still warm and the family is [ Read More ]

I just am being cautious because: September 18, 2012: Loyalty vs. Honesy, Red Sox 7, Rays 5; September 10, 2012: Nice Guys Rarely Finish First, Orioles 9, Rays 2 (9-11-12) September 5, 2012: Something Interesting is Afoot, Yankees 6, Rays 4. But this thing we got going, that will remain unnamed, just [ Read More ]

Even the most casual Rays fan knew at the end of 2011 knew the Rays needed to spend some time focused on their catching corps during the winter. Kelly Shoppach, ...
Up is down. Black is white. Night games are day games. The Rays' offense keeps bailing out their inability to pitch or play defense. We are truly through the looking glass ...
Based on the stories I am reading this morning, the Rays lost last night because Evan Longoria made three errors and for no other reason. It had nothing to do ...
Yeah, I know it isn't called SkyDome anymore. But that was such a cool name, we shouldn't let it die. As many of you know, we here at The Ray Area ...
(Anybody get that headline? My mom watched Days of Our Lives when I was a kid.) At long last, day 8 is here. It is Patriot's Day in Boston which means, ...
As usual, Joe Maddon is the talk of baseball. This time, of course, his newfound predilection to shift against every single hitter has become the talk of the game. Opposing hitters ...
Despite the unbalanced schedule, the Rays do occasionally get to play teams other than the Yankees and Red Sox (who knew?). They kick off a big series (well, as big ...
