I'm going to be upset if Longoria leaves Arlington without a HR.

Looks like they moved Longoria ahead of Zobrist in the order, most likely so he doesn't pass Zobrist on the bases anymore.

Longoria hasn't seen much to hit, and Zobrist is about the only guy on the Rays' roster who might make a pitcher think twice about working around Longo.

So frustrating. His fastball was exploding past the Rangers' bats when he had it in the zone. I hope we don't have to wait too much longer for his command to come around. Elite arm.

3 runs in 3 games.

At least Durham is tearing the cover off the ball. :rolleyes:

Just saw highlights of the end of today's game. Runner on 3rd, one out. Why don't you walk the bases loaded in the 10th and give yourself an op for the force at home, or even turning two?

I thought Madden was smart.

Hoping they get no-hit today.

It would be embarrassing and all, but Buchholz is no joke. Farrell has straightened him right out. He's no longer having a sandwich and a cup of coffee in between every pitch. Get the sign... fire the ball. It seems to have made all the difference.

Doesn't embarrass me. They need offense and need to wake up to it. They keep playing for 3 years down the road while Sam Fuld takes at-bats away from their third best hitter who happens to be at Durham.

Not hitting for any power yet, but Will Myers has a .423 OPB in Durham. :tumbleweed:

Don't fret. Kelly Johnson getting moved up to the 2 hole tonight. That should solve everything,

Kelly Johnson :lmao:Hak Ju Lee is also OBPing about .550 down there. I don't know what the AAA to MLB converter is, but I think that beats Escobar's .070 batting average.

Once Luke Scott comes back, everything will be better.

It's hard to believe that with all this SP depth, Fausto Roberto Hernandez Carmona is getting starts.

Maybe they're just punting this year? Some of these roster decisions are just baffling.

Lobaton with another 1st pitch strike and then chases one upstairs leaving Joyce stranded. These guys allergic to RISP or something?

I mean, Lobaton might be the worst catcher in MLB right now.

He also has the 5th highest BA in the lineup today, at a robust .176

How on god's green earth does Maddon not bring Rodney into a tie game? Your 9th and 10th inning consists of Jamey Wright handing the ball to Brandon Gomes. :lmao:

2-7 road trip. It's early, but they're not a good team.

I did not expect this start with the spring he had. I still get a little anxious every time he starts to lose his command, but overall he looks really really good.

Alex Cobb is becoming pretty acey.

- Moore and Cobb have been at off-season workouts every day. Freid says its become a point for all the pitchers to 'work like Sheildsie taught them'.

Coincidence?

5th shutout the Rays have tossed this year.

Hard to believe they are a game under with this kind of pitching.
