Looks like Glasnow done for the year. That sucks. This season is going south fast (and that inlcudes this stupid Montreal stuff).

FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK

He was killing it for me in fantasy since he's relief eligible. I was happy seeing the reports saying everything was going along smoothly. CBS says expected to be out until at least Aug 20, which is no good to me; that's the 2nd week of our payoffs. I'll bury him in the DL spot for now just in case.

SIlver lining of a 347 inning game: Forced the Rays' hand into calling up Brendan McKay. He starts tomorrow at the Trop v. Texas.

Little d had a monster game. MONSTER. GAME. Snell really pulled himself together after a shaky start, and outside of Pagan’s mistake, the bullpen was spot on. We can’t **** up on the bases again like we did last night and expect to win against a team like NY with regularity though. Gotta tighten up.

This like the 10th different 8th or 9th inning collapse we've had with a lead. No **** we'd be having it out with the LAD for 1st in the league right now if we had even a somewhat decent bullpen.

McKay is gonna wind up being our set up or closer at this rate

You know what would've been cool?

If we ( by "we" I mean our "owner") had spent the money that we "don't" have to sign a Kimball.

Just go to Montreal already. We're ****ing done with this bootleg operation.

If we had half the Yankees payroll, we'd have a better than decent bullpen. It is what it is. To have talent in MLB, you have to have money to pay for it.

The Rays ship is sinking. We may get swept at home by the White Sox.

If you can throw a screwball that well on a given pitch on any given night you'd have a halfways decent shot at rivaling Mariano Rivera's fabled cutter if your career lasted long enough.

That's baseball pornhub stuff

That's nuts. It's like they superimposed his body movement over top of a lefty throwing a really good slider, but doing it at change-up speed.



In other news, if the playoffs started today, the Rays are out. :cry:

I almost don't want to see what would happen in the playoffs. Our biggest problem is that baseball is a 9 inning game and not 7. If we can't figure our **** out with the bullpen we're toast. I feel like I'm watching 2006 again but with much better starting pitching than Kazmir.

I love Cash and all, but this loss to Blue Jays and some of his decisions with the bullpen was a head scratcher. Why do you take Kolarek out and replace with with Poche and against a right hand bat? Made absolutely no sense. Poche is complete garbage.

This team has a TON of position depth.

Goddam pitching injuries are killing this team.

IF we can squeak into the playoffs with a 100% healthy Snell, Morton and Glasnow...I'd take my chances. Obviously, a 100% healthy Yankee team is gonna be the best in the league but that'd be a fun playoff series to watch.

If the Rays are one thing this season, it's definitely resilient. Down 6-0 against the Jays...win in the bottom of the 10th 7-6. Rays are 66-49

10 out now. They're not going to catch the Yankees. That team is rolling. But the Wild Card is definitely in play, and if you just win the Wild Card game, anything is possible. I just wish the Wild Card was a best 2-out-of-3, not a winner take all.

That's for baseball in general, though. A one-game series is rough, because on any given night a team could score 10 or could score 0. Hell, on any given pitch, a fart from the left field bleachers could mean the difference between an inning-ending flyout, or a 3-run bases clearing double.

10-4 win over the Padres and the Rays reach win #70 on the year. They're 70-50 overall.
