Archer vs. A guy making his major league debut.

I can't wait to see how big a lead we blow tonight!

Dickerson is such a beast. I was so excited when he came here. He disappointed his first season here but he's making good on it now.

Also, we are throwing 3 of our best against 3 guys I've never heard of before, and our pen should be rested. If we can't get the brooms out for this one....

8 runs on 4 hits and 3 earned? That's a very special type of ineptitude

This team...should be ****ing embarrassed right now. Seattle isn't any slouch...but come on, none of these games were even close. 12-4, 9-2, 7-1? Pitiful.

Jeezus, what was it, three times leaving the based loaded tonight?

Archer was good tonight. Wasted effort.

Major league debut for Faria? Don't think I've seen him on any of our prospects list.


Anyways, he had an impressive debut. Allowed 1 run, and took a 3 hitter into the 7th. Also, Brad Miller is injured again

Even though I still contend this team is an 80 or so win team, there is no disputing that they are fun to watch.

We haven't seen a Devil Rays team (yeah...I said it) before. Dickerson is the real deal. They score runs. When Cobb figures out his change-up and we get our REAL catcher back...

This team COULD be a player down the stretch. Not a WS contender...but a playoff team.

And that would be a minor miracle...

Rays look like they had an okay draft. I'm glad we snagged McKay. As long as he develops into a good 1B I'm happy. I know he throws great as a pitcher but this musical chairs at 1st bullshit needs to stop.... NOW. Someone needs to go there and STAY there. Looks like I overestimated Schwarz but the kid could at least be decent. I hope we target Longoria's replacement next year so we can make the trade and get value for him. He's not gonna last forever

Do that and in a couple years its 1B McKay, SS Duffy, 3B Longoria replacement, C Schwarz... I think by then we'll have 2B figured out.

It'll be nice to have some kind of consistency at infield

Move him to 2B or trade him. I'm sorry but if we lost him I'm not gonna find myself saying NOOOOOOO we should've given him a 10th year! He was just getting good.

Plus we'll have Willy Adames ready to roll soon too. Need depth at SS? He and Duffy are it

I'll take your word for it.

I haven't watched this much Rays baseball since the world series run.

They made it easier for him but Faria shines again. 7 innings, 6 hits, and 1 ER. He's allowed 3 runs in his first 3 career starts, and has made it past 6IP every start.

Yeah. Against a team that is setting an ALL-TIME RECORD for giving up runs (in consecutive games) by starting pitchers.

I'd be happy with a series win. We are in contention. Be there at the All-Star break. Get our new catcher and Boxberger back. Maybe trade for a set-up guy (O'Day from BAL would be nice).

I'm starting to think this team's offense is for real. They've done it for nearly half a season...can't be a fluke any longer...can it?
