The Rays success in 2018 can be traced to three pivotal days from the 2017 offseason

Trading Longoria, designating Corey Dickerson, so much turnover... were these the right choices? The Tampa Bay Rays surprised most by winning 90 games in what was by any consideration a rebuilding year, and a season of tanking to others. That success can be traced to three all-important days from the 2017 offseason. With another offseason ahead of us, let’s look back on those three pivotal days. December 20th, 2017 Tampa Bay trades 3B Evan Longoria and cash to San Francisco for OF Denard Span, 3B Christian Arroyo, RHP Stephen Woods, and LHP Matt Krook The Rays traded Evan Longoria...

Tampa Bay Rays made the right move with Kevin Cash

The Tampa Bay Rays handed manager Kevin Cash a long term extension on Tuesday. It was the right move for the franchise. Over the years, the Tampa Bay Rays have not had a lot of consistency. Their players come and go, with even franchise icons like Evan Longoria being traded once their salary becomes more […] Tampa Bay Rays made the right move with Kevin Cash - Call to the Pen - Call to the Pen - A Major League Baseball Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Rays 9, Blue Jays 4: The season ends at 90

Rays 9, Blue Jays 4: The season ends at 90

“Nine, Eight, Seven” 9 innings left to reach an arbitrary mark I’m not sure why 90 wins feels important. There’s very little difference between 90 wins (and out of the playoffs) and 89 wins (and out of the playoffs). Whether or not the Rays win the final game of the season they’ll be the same team tomorrow, and they’ll have had basically the same season. But basically the same and exactly the same are not exactly the same. This season, it’s often felt like more is at stake than just the playoffs. During the offseason, the Rays traded Evan Longoria, Corey Dickerson, and Steven...

Giants lose to Cardinals late, hurting Rockies’ cause

ST. LOUIS - The Giants have always played good baseball at the third iteration of Busch Stadium since it opened in 2006. They had met the Cardinals here 44 times, playoffs included, through last season. They won 22 and lost 22. Friday night's series opener mirrored that parity, even though one team holds a National League wild card and the other is playing out the schedule. The Cardinals settled their 5-3 victory with two outs in the in the eighth inning. Pinch-hitter Matt Adams squirted a ball between Evan Longoria and third base - St. Louis' hit of choice on this night - for a tiebreaking...

AT&T Park taking toll on Giants’ Evan Longoria, but signs of improvement

SAN DIEGO — Every hitter who joins the Giants learns quickly that AT&T Park is a beast that can devour you. It can kill the spirit and the confidence a player has spent years building. Third baseman Evan Longoria, a good hitter throughout a 10-year American League career, is at a crossroads as he completes his first season with the Giants, the worst offensive performance of his career. Longoria can disappear into the belly of the beast, or, if his mind and body are strong enough, he at least can join the fight to subdue it. The question is critical for the Giants and Longoria, a key...
