    Logan Morrison

    Now that the Marlins have gotten older and worse by signing Garrett Jones, the smarter teams are coming out of the woodwork in pursuit of Logan Morrison. FOXSports.com’s Jon Morosi says both the Pirates and Rays have had conversations regarding the first baseman. John Perotto of the Beaver County Times reports that the Pirates and…

    According to Joe Frisaro of MLB.com, the Marlins have had “internal discussions” about a trade for Rays utility man Sean Rodriguez. The plan would be to play him at third base, possibly as part of a platoon. The Marlins are reportedly close to a two-year, $7.5 million contract with Garrett Jones, which likely signals that…

    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…

    Behind a solid start from Jon Lester and a whole lot of offense, the Red Sox blew out the Rays in Game 1 of the ALDS yesterday by the score of 12-2. The two teams will meet again today at Fenway Park at 5:30 p.m. ET. The game will be broadcast on TBS. Here’s a…

  9. Youthful Rays appear rattled in Game 1 rout

    Oct 4, 2013, 6:57 PM EDT

    Matt Moore

    Technically, the Rays went errorless in Friday’s 12-2 loss to the Red Sox. Which just further demonstrates how silly judging things based on errors can be. After three innings without allowing a hit, Matt Moore gave up a Dustin Pedroia single to start the fourth with the Rays up 2-0. David Ortiz followed with a…

  12. Delmon Young “accepting his walks, not expanding his strike zone”

    Oct 2, 2013, 9:44 AM EDT

    Delmon Young

    File this under stuff that makes predicting playoff baseball a fool’s errand. Because Joe Maddon gave the quote in the headline in Marc Topkin’s article noting Delmon Young’s contribution to the Rays since joining the team in August. And your first impulse is to mock. But then you go look and realize that since joining…

  13. Rays strike first in Game 163 against Rangers

    Sep 30, 2013, 8:25 PM EDT

    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.…

  15. 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…

  16. The Rays are still mad at John Lackey

    Rays logo

    It was a day later, but yesterday the Tampa Bay Rays were still talking about John Lackey plunking Matt Joyce on Monday night. Here’s Rays’ infielder Sean Rodriguez speaking to Marc Topkin yesterday: “It was very unmanlike to deny that you did it on purpose, that’s basically what I was addressing with him when we…

  17. Evan Longoria called out in ninth for overtaking Ben Zobrist on double

    Apr 4, 2013, 6:21 PM EDT

    Evan Longoria

    A potential ninth-inning rally for the Rays was sabotaged in Thursday’s game against the Orioles when Evan Longoria was ruled to have passed Ben Zobrist on the basepaths on what otherwise would have been a double. Down 6-2, the Rays had runners on first and second with none out and Longoria up. Longoria hit a…

  18. Sean Rodriguez, Rays avoid arbitration with one-year deal

    Dec 4, 2012, 1:20 PM EDT

    Sean Rodriguez

    Tampa Bay has avoided arbitration with Sean Rodriguez, signing the infielder to a one-year, $1 million deal. Rodriguez hasn’t hit as well as hoped based on his minor-league track record, batting just .225 with a .658 OPS that included a measly .607 mark this year, but he’s gotten 378, 436, and 342 plate appearances for…

  19. Sean Rodriguez rewarded for act of idiocy

    Aug 31, 2012, 6:56 PM EDT

    Sean Rodriguez

    When it came down to it, the Rays cared more about postseason roster flexibility than any sort of moral stand. Tampa Bay today called up infielder Sean Rodriguez from Triple-A Durham and placed him on the 15-day disabled list with the broken hand he sustained punching a locker after a Bulls game last week. The…

  20. Sean Rodriguez latest numbskull to suffer broken hand

    Aug 27, 2012, 6:07 PM EDT

    Sean Rodriguez

    Rays infielder Sean Rodriguez, who was sent down to Triple-A Durham earlier this month, is sidelined with a fractured right hand after punching a locker in frustration following Sunday’s Bulls game, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. “Definitely the dumbest thing I’ve ever done,”” Rodriguez told Topkin. Rodriguez was involved in an altercation…

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

    Aug 21, 2012, 6:01 PM EDT

    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…

  22. Rays activate Luke Scott, send Sean Rodriguez to minors

    Aug 21, 2012, 11:51 AM EDT

    Luke Scott Getty

    As expected the Rays have activated Luke Scott from the disabled list after the designated hitter missed exactly a month with an oblique injury. Scott hit just .225 with a .716 OPS in 68 games before the injury, although prior to being shut down he had shown some signs of life by going 15-for-39 (.385)…

  23. King Felix pitches perfect game against the Rays

    Aug 15, 2012, 5:09 PM EDT

    Felix Hernandez

    6:02 p.m EDT update: Hernandez is perfect, getting a called third strike on Sean Rodriguez to end the ninth. It’s the first perfect game in Mariners history, and the Rays became the first team ever to be on the losing end of three perfect games. Hernandez ended up striking out five of the final six…

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

    Jun 27, 2012, 6:15 AM EDT

    arroyo getty

    Reds 4, Brewers 3: Bronson Arroyo had a no-hitter through seven and then ended up with a no-decision. Guess that happens when you ask a starter who usually throws less than seven innings a start to go eight, eh?  Still a nice game until that eighth, and a win for the Redlegs. Giants 2, Dodgers…

  25. How much longer will the Rangers hit Michael Young fifth?

    Jun 25, 2012, 6:56 PM EDT
