    In the middle of last night’s loss to the Red Sox, starter Alex Cobb and catcher Jose Molina had to be separated in the Rays dugout after an altercation that manager Joe Maddon called simply “boys being boys.” However, according to Greg Zeck of MLB.com Molina refused to speak to the media afterward and Cobb…

    We’ve heard a lot recently about the Orioles’ success in one-run games and the Rays’ inability to win one. Well, their fortunes finally reversed today. We’ll start with the Orioles. They entered the bottom of the seventh inning with a 3-1 lead against the Yankees, but things unraveled from there. Wei-Yin Chen was ahead of…

  3. Evan Longoria starts at third for first time since April 30

    Evan Longoria

    Evan Longoria had been limited to DH duties since returning from his hamstring tear two weeks ago, but he’s back at third base tonight for the first time since getting hurt on April 30. “I’m excited to say the least. A little bit nervous,” he told Roger Mooney of the Tampa Tribune. Longoria has started…

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

    New York Yankees' Derek Lowe pitches to Texas Rangers during their MLB American League baseball game in New York

    Yankees 8, Rangers 2: I suppose the critical mass of people mocking the Yankees’ pickup of Derek Lowe was just too delicious for God or Loki or Fate or whatever controls our world to pass up, because He/it/whatever decided to play it funny with us and allow Mr. Lowe to toss four scoreless innings in…

  5. And That Happened: Thursday’s scores and highlights

    Jul 20, 2012, 6:22 AM EDT

    Chicago White Sox v Boston Red Sox

    Red Sox 3, White Sox 1: All Cody Ross does is hit three-run homers. The walkoff one here was his third in two days. Mets 9, Nationals 5: David Wright his a two-run and a three-run homer. He’s like a poor-man’s Cody Ross! R.A. Dickey is the first player in the NL to notch 13…

  6. There were three ninth inning rallies today

    Sure, the Giants’ win over the Reds had an assist from a bad call by an ump, but it still counts as a ninth inning rally.  As does the Heath Bell meltdown Aaron described earlier. But those weren’t the only two. The Rays turned their caps inside out or whatever the hell passes for a…

  7. Jose Molina, Russell Martin and the frame game

    Apr 17, 2012, 9:44 AM EDT

    Jose Molina

    One last thing on the Cody Ross strikeout:  feel pity for Ross, feel some aggravation at umpire Larry Vanover, but let us not slight Jose Molina, whose pitch framing is about as good as it gets in baseball and, as Bradley Woodrum notes at FanGraphs today, was likely the biggest reason that call went the…

  8. Jeff Keppinger is batting cleanup for the Rays

    Apr 5, 2012, 1:20 PM EDT

    Jeff Keppinger

    There’s a whole lot of people picking the Rays over the Red Sox in the AL East. I wonder how many of them have taken a gander at Tampa Bay’s Opening Day lineup against the Yankees’ CC Sabathia: CF Desmond Jennings RF Ben Zobrist 3B Evan Longoria DH Jeff Keppinger SS Sean Rodriguez 2B Elliot…

    Things have been rough for Robinson Chirinos since the season ended. First the 27-year-old Rays catcher broke his hand playing winter ball and now he’s sidelined for at least the next few days after suffering a concussion from a foul tip to the mask on Monday. Chirinos was acquired from the Cubs last winter in…

    Feb 5, 2012, 9:14 PM EDT

    Buster Posey

    I’ll save the fantasy projections for the Rotoworld Draft Guide, but here are my top catchers for 2012 going by OPS: .878 - Buster Posey – Giants – 486 AB – .756 in 2011 .868 – Mike Napoli – Rangers – 413 AB – 1.046 in 2011 .867 – Carlos Santana – Indians – 524 AB –…

    After declaring the Houston Astros in position of the game’s worst rotation earlier today, I thought it’d be fun to look at the rest of the worst. So here are MLB’s most gruesome position situations heading into the 2012 season: Catcher: Dodgers – A.J. Ellis, Matt Treanor, Tim Federowicz The Dodgers let the slugging-heavy Rod Barajas…

    We already know Jorge Posada isn’t returning to the Yankees, but he hasn’t dismissed the possibility of continuing his career elsewhere. With that in mind, Javier Maymi of ESPNDeportes.com hears (link in Spanish) that the division-rival Rays are interested in the 40-year-old. Maymi confirmed the information with Posada’s father, who said he has also had…

  13. The Rays sign Jose Molina

    Jose Molina

    This has been a long time coming — it was first reported a couple of weeks ago — but the Rays have finally signed Jose Molina. It’s a one-year deal for $1.8 million with a club option. Of course, when this was first reported, Molina was supposed to be John Jaso‘s backup.  Jaso was traded…

  14. Mariners acquire catcher John Jaso from Rays

    Nov 27, 2011, 9:57 PM EDT

    John Jaso

    Given the Rays’ struggles behind the plate last season, it didn’t seem all that likely that the team would be content to replace Kelly Shoppach with Jose Molina and call it a day. They went in another direction Sunday, trading incumbent John Jaso to the Mariners for reliever Josh Lueke and a player to be named or…

  15. Jose Molina signing with Rays “appears imminent”

    Nov 23, 2011, 4:16 PM EDT

    Jose Molina

    Last week Jose Molina was said to be negotiating a deal with the Rays and now Joe Smith of the St. Petersburg Times reports that an agreement “appears imminent.” Molina would back up John Jaso, essentially replacing fellow right-handed-hitting free agent Kelly Shoppach. Molina lacks Shoppach’s power and ability to knock around left-handed pitching, but…
