I stumbled across this crappy blog the other day. Feel free to check it out if you want to waste a couple of minutes of your life that you can never get back. Apparently they only post entries every couple of months, and from what I can tell from reading the entries, Joe Maddon doesn’t always suck. This is the same guy that has all the brand new Rays gear on when the Rays are winning, but when they are in a slide…it’s back to the old trusty Yankees gear. Guess what buddy, it’s you that SUCKS…and I would like to challenge you to a JOUST! You can contact us @ firstname.lastname@example.org so we can work out the details, that is, if you are a noble and honorable knight!
.287, .297, .260, .235, .212, .242, .264, .262, .271, .240, .207, .223, .210, .195, .202, .254, .143
Seriously…..where are they? Yeah, I see a couple in there, too (for you jackasses who want to split hairs). But they’re not in the right position and you knew damn well that’s what I meant.
The Yankmes have 3 batters over .300, the Sux have 4, the Twins have 4, the White Sox have 3 (and so on). Our team BA is .250, which puts us in 12th place (of 14) in the American League, squarely four positions lower than…………………………wait for it……………………………….THE BALTIMORE ORIOLES! THE ORIOLES! Let me say that again. The Rays team batting average is 4 positions (and .010) behind the Baltimore Orioles.
I’ve got nothing else to say. Just gotta get that shit straightened out. If this is going to be our year we need to hit better. Plain as the big-ass nose on Andy Pettitte’s face.
True to form, Detroit ruined itself tonight. Some decent batting by the Rays and some shitty pitching by Detroit culminated in a 8-0 Rays VICTORY! While the Tigers bullpen walked in 3 (Yes, 3!!!) runs in the ninth, Gonzalez tried to do what Detroit does best – start a riot – by throwing at BJ Upton’s head.
A couple of the Rays young guns showed up in a big way, Hellickson throwing wonderfully, giving up only 3 hits, no runs, and no walks, Benoit great as usual, then Eckstrom shutting down the 9th like a seasoned pro.
Really nice to see the Rays looking up again after a few rough days. These mood swings might just get the best of me by the end of the season, though.
Here’s the line from tonight’s game:
Rays: 8 runs on 9 Hits with 0 Errors. Tigers: 0 Runs on 4 Hits with 2 Errors.
The most impressive stats of the night? Zero players from either team sustained gunshot wounds and only six were offered crack from fans in the stands.
One more night in the 8-mile, boys, then run for your lives!
