We tried this with the rotations the other day. Once again, I’ll be dipping into my 2014 projections here to rank the bullpens.

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…

It’s rare that a team will tally nine hits and be held scoreless, but that is exactly what happened to the host Indians in Wednesday night’s American League Wild Card Game at Progressive Field in Cleveland.
