    Dan Uggla

    The Braves-Phillies game was GONZO with a capital X. In no small part because Dan Uggla was the hero.

  2. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    Apr 9, 2014, 6:18 AM EDT

    Ryan Braun

    A ton of guys had multi-homer games yesterday. Ryan Braun led the pack with his three. I’m sure that won’t bother anyone.

    Discover the one weird trick Coco Crisp used to hit a walkoff home run in last night’s Mariners-A’s game. The answer may shock you!

  4. Rays agree to a six-year contract with pitcher Chris Archer

    The Rays gotta lock ‘em up young to keep ‘em long. They just locked one up young.

  5. Wil Myers outpoints Jose Iglesias for AL Rookie of the Year

    Nov 11, 2013, 6:24 PM EDT

    Wil Myers

    Wil Myers became Tampa Bay’s third AL Rookie of the Year in the past six seasons Monday after receiving 23 of 30 first-place votes from the BBWAA. Myers, who was acquired from Kansas City last winter in the James Shields deal, joins Evan Longoria (2008) and Jeremy Hellickson (2010) as Rays to win the award…

  6. BBWAA awards finalists revealed on MLB Network

    Nov 5, 2013, 6:01 PM EDT

    The Baseball Writers Association of America (BBWAA) is announcing the top three finalists for American League and National League Rookie of the Year, Manager of the Year, Cy Young and Most Valuable Player during a one-hour special airing right now (6:00 p.m. ET) on MLB Network. We will post those names here as they are rolled out…

  7. The Rays’ all just wasn’t quite enough

    Oct 9, 2013, 12:58 AM EDT

    Will Middlebrooks, Yunel Escobar

    The Rays used 22 of their 25 players in Tuesday’s loss, and they were one inning away from turning to their Game 5 starter. Still, no matter how much Joe Maddon maneuvered, there was no outgunning the Red Sox this week. It was plenty close. The Rays got the break they needed in the second…

  8. Just another shutout for Alex Cobb and the Rays

    Oct 3, 2013, 12:40 AM EDT

    Alex Cobb

    The Rays (17) and the Indians (16) were the only American League teams to throw 15 shutouts this season, so it’s fitting that the wild card turned into another one. Pitching himself into and out of trouble, Alex Cobb scattered eight hits in 6 2/3 innings before leaving with a 3-0 lead. Joel Peralta, Jake…

  9. Pouliot’s postseason award picks: American League

    Oct 1, 2013, 2:18 AM EDT

    Mike Trout

    Evan Longoria made his case for moving up the MVP ballot with his big game Monday, but while it’s safe to say the Rays wouldn’t have reached the postseason without him, he was still no better than the AL’s third best third baseman. It was, in fact, the year of the third baseman in the…

  10. Rays fall into tie with Indians for wild card spots, Rangers one back

    Sep 27, 2013, 11:51 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim v Texas Rangers

    The AL wild card battle tightened up Friday, with the Rays losing in Toronto and both the Indians and Rangers gaining a game. The current standings: Rays: 90-70 (two in Toronto) Indians: 90-70 (two in Minnesota) Rangers: 89-71 (two vs. Angels) The Rays, who had won seven straight, were undone by some sloppy defense in…

  11. Deep thoughts with Chris Archer

    Sep 24, 2013, 3:35 PM EDT

    Chris Archer

    I can’t tell if this is silly or deep, but either way it’s definitely way better than anything I’ve ever posted on my stupid Twitter feed: Could earth be considered a spaceship? Since we are traveling on it through space? — Chris Archer (@ChrisArcher42) September 24, 2013 And also Archer has a 3.21 ERA in…

  12. Rays run scoreless innings streak to 27 before collapsing late against the Twins

    Sep 15, 2013, 9:45 PM EDT

    David Price

    The Rays entered this afternoon’s contest against the Twins having completed back-to-back shutouts. Starter Chris Archer shut them out over six innings on Friday while Matt Moore went three innings in a rain-soaked affair last night. The last time a Rays pitcher had allowed a run was in the sixth inning on Thursday against the…

  13. And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

    Sep 3, 2013, 6:25 AM EDT

    Minnesota Twins v Houston Astros

    Twins 10, Astros 6: Rookie and independent league veteran Chris Colabello homered twice including a grand slam to break a 6-6 tie in the ninth. Entering Sunday he was on an 0 for 23 skid and now here he is having the best day of his life. Probably the best day he’ll ever have at a ballpark.…

  14. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    Aug 29, 2013, 7:05 AM EDT

    Brandon Moss

    Athletics 14, Tigers 4: We had this game on for a bit, got bored and decided to watch some random stuff we had recorded. When the show ended we went back to the game to see the A’s up 14-1. Allison let’s out a big “oh for f***’s sake!” and quickly turns on the “Awesom-O”…

  15. Alex Cobb ready to resume minor league rehab assignment

    Aug 3, 2013, 11:20 AM EDT

    Alex Cobb,Jim Hickey

    Alex Cobb‘s return from a concussion hit a minor snag last week due to a blister on his right index finger, but he’s ready to return to game action. Roger Mooney of the Tampa Tribune reports that Cobb will resume a minor league rehab assignment tonight for High-A Charlotte, throwing around four innings or 65…

  16. Chris Archer tosses two-hit shutout against Yankees

    Jul 27, 2013, 5:10 PM EDT

    Chris Archer Reuters

    Chris Archer‘s recent stretch of dominance continued this afternoon, as he tossed a two-hit shutout in a 1-0 victory over the Yankees at Yankee Stadium. It was his second shutout in his past three starts. This qualified as a “Maddux” for Archer, as he needed just 97 pitches to finish it off. Outdueling Ivan Nova,…

  17. Jose Reyes was hit in the jewels on a pickoff attempt

    Jul 21, 2013, 11:00 PM EDT

    jose reyes getty

    It’s been a rough year for Jose Reyes. After starting the season blazing hot with a .991 OPS and five stolen bases in his first ten games, Reyes had to go on the disabled list with a sprained left ankle. It cost him 67 games. He returned on June 26, and in the month of…

  18. Rays keep rolling behind red-hot Chris Archer

    Jul 21, 2013, 5:17 PM EDT

    chris archer headshot getty

    The Rays are by far the hottest team in baseball. With young right-hander Chris Archer yielding only one run over seven innings and both Evan Longoria and Luke Scott providing home runs, Tampa Bay won its sixth straight game on Sunday afternoon in a sweep of the Blue Jays at Toronto’s Rogers Centre. Archer has…

  19. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Jul 15, 2013, 5:30 AM EDT

    Texas Rangers v Detroit Tigers

    These were the last baseball games that count — despite the claim about the All-Star Game counting, which is certainly does not in any real sense — until Friday. That’s some b.s. right there. Why don’t they play the All-Star Game with only 25 guys on a team and let the rest of the league…

  20. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Jun 24, 2013, 5:30 AM EDT

    New York Mets v Philadelphia Phillies

    Mets 8, Phillies 0: Matt Harvey blanks the Phillies on two hits for six innings and David Wright went 4 for 5 with two doubles, a triple and a homer. I know the Mets have problems, but man, when it goes right for them it’s really pretty. Something about the purity of an ace and…

  21. Report: The Rockies have checked in with the Rays about Jeff Niemann

    Feb 23, 2013, 12:10 PM EDT

    Jeff Niemann AP

    UPDATE: According to Troy Renck of the Denver Post, the Dodgers have called the Rockies, among other teams, to gauge their interest in left-hander Chris Capuano. 12:10 PM: After finishing last in the majors in 2012 with a 5.22 ERA, the Rockies are asking around about potential upgrades for their starting rotation. ESPN’s Buster Olney…

  22. Rays should trade James Shields to fill holes

    Nov 11, 2012, 6:30 PM EDT

    James Shields

    That the Rays will trade a starter this winter seems like a given. With David Price, James Shields, Jeremy Hellickson, Matt Moore, Alex Cobb, Jeff Niemann and Chris Archer all under contract, the Rays possess both quality and quantity in the rotation. What they don’t have are bats and a lot of money, so with…
