View from the Catwalk: Rays open home season with series win

The weekend series included some pretty good offense all around, and a strong outing for Rich Hill. The Rays also got to raise their 2020 AL East and AL championship banners ($). The Saturday game looked like it was going to be a costly win, with starter Chris Archer pulled early with the dreaded “forearm tightness,” but reports suggest that his injury may not be too serious.

Rays 4, Yankees 8: Honey Day!

Photo by Douglas P. DeFelice/ How sweet it was to see Brent Honeywell as the Opener. Today was a very big deal for Rays fans, and for one pitcher who has waited three and a half years to make his major league debut.

Rays 4, Yankees 0: Bittersweet Shutout

On a bittersweet Saturday, the Rays shutout the Yankees 4-0 to get back to .500. But the game featured another bite from the injury bug, this time taking Chris Archer, who was pulled midway through the third with forearm tightness. Human garbage Domingo Germán took the hill for New York. The lineup backing Arch looked like this: Familiar foes go toe to toe pic.twitter.com/Qf6347ZZDU— Tampa Bay Rays (@RaysBaseball) April...

Rays 7 Marlins 12: You can’t win ‘em all

Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports Sketchy pitching and shoddy defense ruin the perfect season So we had a pitchers duel this series. We had a thrilling comeback. And then we had ... whatever this was. But hey, if shoddy pitching and ugly defense are your thing, boy do I have a game for you. The Marlins sent to the hill another one of their promising young pitchers in Elieser Hernández. Meanwhile, the Rays were slated to go with their first piggy back of the year in Rich Hill/Chris Archer. 4-3-21, let's play some ball! pic.twitter.com/GVYO7mYbQN— Tampa Bay Rays...

Rays will piggyback Rich Hill and Chris Archer in Game 3, but will it continue?

I’m so sorry, I had to. Off days make for some interesting rotation choices The Rays are in an interesting position of having off days on April 4th and April 8th, the fourth and eighth days of the season. To fit the rotation to that schedule, Kevin Cash and company appear to preparing to piggyback Chris Archer and Rich Hill, having aligned those pitchers’ schedules in Spring Training for a couple weeks now. Both Archer and Hill pitched yesterday, and after the game Kevin Cash confirmed the pair will stay on that schedule... for now. The #Rays Kevin Cash says Rich...
