    Boston Red Sox v Baltimore Orioles

    So, you probably know that this year Boston’s Koji Uehara proved to be harder to reach base against than any pitcher in the history of baseball. That’s a pretty good thing. Here’s the list of the Top 10 WHIPs in baseball history, pitching at least 50 innings: 1. Koji Uehara, 2013, 0.565 2. Dennis Eckersley,…

    We have a whole new ballgame at Tropicana Field. Evan Longoria launched a three-run homer off Clay Buchholz in the bottom of the fifth inning to tie Game 3 at 3-3. He has a habit with this kind of thing in elimination games, now doesn’t he? You can watch video of the homer below. The…

    Division Series - Tampa Bay Rays v Boston Red Sox - Game Two

    The Red Sox will head down to Tampa Bay happy campers. After a thorough 12-2 dismantling of the Rays in Game 1, the Sox scored seven runs against 2012 AL Cy Young award winner David Price in seven-plus innings, just enough run support for John Lackey. The scoring started early, with Jacoby Ellsbury leading off…

    Division Series - Tampa Bay Rays v Boston Red Sox - Game Two

    To their credit, the Rays have remained competitive throughout Game 2 against the Red Sox despite starter David Price looking not-so-sharp as well as some defensive miscues by the Tampa Bay defense. After the Red Sox took a 2-0 lead in the first, the Rays scratched back for a run in the second on a…

    Tampa Bay has increased its early lead in this American League Wild Card Game in Cleveland.

    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…

  15. Rangers have no answer for the Rays’ stars

    Sep 30, 2013, 11:47 PM EDT

    Evan Longoria

    The simple fact is that things lined up better for the Rays than they did for the Rangers in Monday’s one-game playoff. With no maneuvering necessary, the Rays had their 2012 AL Cy Young Award winner, David Price, ready to the take the mound. The Rangers, having used Yu Darvish on Sunday, were forced to…

    AP Evan Longoria

    Evan Longoria played hero in Game 162 for the Rays two years ago. And he’s trying to do it in Game 163 tonight. Longoria just smacked an opposite-field two-run homer off Martin Perez in the top of the third inning to extend the Rays’ lead to 3-0 over the Rangers. Perez issued a leadoff walk…

    Delmon Young

    It’s do-or-die time for the Rays and Rangers in Game 163. And the Rays have the early advantage. Delmon Young delivered a sacrifice fly in the top of the first inning to give the Rays an early 1-0 lead, but things could have been much worse for the Rangers and their young left-hander Martin Perez.…

    Untimely development here for the Rays, who have a half-game hold on the top spot in the crowded and ever-changing American League Wild Card race. Evan Longoria has been scratched from the lineup for Sunday’s game against the Orioles due to flu-like symptoms, as first reported by Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times. Topkin…

    Cleveland Indians v Kansas City Royals

    Well, it’s Sept. 17 … and the Kansas City Royals have a shot at the postseason. It’s a bit of a longshot, sure. They are 2 1/2 games behind Texas in the wildcard standings right now, which is hardly insurmountable (especially the way the Rangers are playing). But they also have Cleveland and Baltimore ahead…
