Tampa Bay Rays had the best defense in baseball, per Defensive Runs Saved

Even with significant time lost to injury, KK leads the way Heading into the season the Tampa Bay Rays wanted to get back to being a good defensive team. They signed Colby Rasmus to man left field. They re-signed Logan Morrison in part for his defense (compared to other free agent options).Peter Bourjos was picked up for cash considerations at the end of spring training. Their first trade in July was for Adeiny Hechavarria. The defensive metrics were fans of the Rays work.

Rays 9, Yankees 6: Do not go gently into that good night

Rays 9, Yankees 6: Do not go gently into that good night

When I saw today’s lineup I figured we were headed for another game in which the Rays offense was AWOL. Against the tough righty Sonny Gray, Logan Morrison and Kevin Kiermaier were resting. The outfield was Puello-Bourjos-Smith, not the trio you were imagining watching in late September. So of course the Rays hitters exploded. They batted around in a seven-run fifth inning.

In a 9-6 slugest that lasted three and a half hours we had a little bit of...

Rays vs. Orioles, game two recap: A grand buffalo

Wilson Ramos made the Rays baserunners count. The game plan to beat Ubaldo Jimenez is not a secret. At this point, lots of teams have done it. Take your walks and hit your ground balls. You’ll get plenty of men on base. It’s what happens next that determines the outcome of the game. If Jimenez is able to rack up strikeouts and groundball double plays, his team might win. If instead he gives up hard contact, the runs will come in bunches. The second inning was exactly to script for the Rays. First, Logan Morrison was hit by a pitch. Then Steven Souza Jr. grounded up the middle,, just out...

Steven Souza Jr becomes 8th Rays player to reach 30 HR in single season

Souza goes deep for the first time in the month of September During the first inning of tonight’s contest with the Chicago Cubs, Steven Souza launched his 30th home run of the 2017 season, becoming the 8th player in Rays history to reach that mark. Souza’s 30th home run was a long time coming as he had been sitting with 29 since the start of the month with his last home run coming on August 30th in Kansas City. Logan Morrison was the 7th player in franchise history to homer 30 times in a season, launching his 30th back on August 27th as part of a multi-homer day. The six players to come...
