We're 23 games into the season and I'd bet a drink of choice that we've already left over 100 runs stranded on base. Been the story since 2010. We can get em on but we can't get em home. I can't say I'm optimistic to how this game is going to end.

I'm pretty sure this ump flips a coin after every pitch to determine ball or strike.

I feel like I've died and gone back to 2007 and I'm watching the legendary Fossum, Stokes and Camp again.

Yep.


Our hitting really seems to have turned a corner (even though we strike out wayyy too much) but Cash has completely erased Maddons thumbprint of great defense and pitching.

The Rays should consider themselves lucky that they're not playing tonight because I don't think anyone in Tampa would've watched.

I swear to God I have never seen a bullpen that doesn't have a regular left handed reliever in it.

We've had a lead in 19 of the last 20 games (not including today's game) and we've gone .500 during that stint.

We are the suck.

Bases loaded no outs and a strikeout and double play. The glory of Rays baseball summed up in about 3 swings. Glad to see some things haven't changed in 7 years. But plenty of change to mediocre pitching and defense though

Freaking Bad News Bears tonight. Even Kiermaier forgot how to pick up and throw a baseball. Only scoring it as 4 errors was the epitome of generosity. I counted at least 6.

Let's just hope that they were sufficiently embarrassed that they can find some sort of motivation to pull their collective heads out of their collective asses. Let's also hope for divine intervention in the bullpen, because that's what it's going to take at this point.

What the hell happened to Kiermaier? He had that horrendous stint at the plate, finally starts to hit again, but now it's like he has developed the fielding yips.



Oh, and the bullpen is once again giving up the booty. Surprise, surprise.

If the 5-4-3 double play goes 3rd to 2nd to 1st, is a catch by the right fielder thrown to the catcher who makes the tag at home a 7-2 double play?

No, because 7 is the left fielder. ;)

@Kress from the McFan thread

I won't be comfortable until Archer gets out of the game. It seems his last inning is always his worst no matter what and runs are scored en mass at the time of his exit

Yep. He's always on fire until the inevitable 4 run inning. Then the bullpen finishes us off.

It's gotten to the point where the radio broadcast made a joke in like the 2nd or 3rd inning at 4-0 "please don't blow it" I'm still having nightmares about Toronto and Baltimore in Archer's last few starts

This conversation has spread into a couple of different threads, so this is from the McFan thread:

Why?

If first, second, and third are 3,4, and 5, why would you go left to right with the outfield?
