OAK 3 - TB 0: Drew Smyly debut an interesting loss

All the details from the late night loss. Drew Smyly made his debut in a Rays jersey this evening, squaring off against former Rays pitcher Jason Hammel --traded to Oakland from the Cubs a month ago, and thus far struggling for the A's. The new Rays starter had struggled with more flyballs that usual this season, so beginning his Rays career on the road but at O.co stadium. A few initial notes as he takes the mound: - The Rays deemed it fine to issue Drew Smyly a certain jersey number 33, formerly worn by Big Game James Shields, which was awkward and sad, personally speaking.

Remembering David Price the Ray

From game 7 to game 163. David Price, over his seven seasons in a Rays uniform, was the best pitcher in franchise history on a per-game or per-season basis. King David accumulated 22.5 WAR and 82 wins in 170 starts for Tampa Bay, with a franchise record 3.19 ERA, 3.33 FIP, and 1.15 WHIP (not to mention his best overall 16.2% K-BB). He is second only to James Shields in wins, innings pitched, and strikeouts, as well as cumulative WAR. If wins and losses are your bread and butter, the sole Cy Young Award winner in franchise history is also the only 20-win pitcher the Rays have ever had. For a...
