Marc Topkin's takeaways from Tuesday's Rays-Orioles game

Manager Kevin Cash started lefty swinging 1B Logan Morrison against Orioles LHP Wade Miley saying he wanted to get him going, but it also seemed like a move to have better defense than putting Rickie Weeks - who DH'd - at first. It may be time to wonder if C Derek Norris is close to

Rays 4, Astros 6: Pitching and defense can’t hold an early lead

Rays 4, Astros 6: Pitching and defense can’t hold an early lead

Offense can’t get anything going after the first inning. The Rays jumped on the Astros for four runs in the first inning. It was a big inning that was extremely close to not happening at all. Corey Dickerson started off by swinging awkwardly at an 0-2 curve in the dirt. The pitch actually bounced hard off home plate and kicked away from catcher Brian McCann. Dickerson made it to first easily for the strikeout/wild pitch. In the next at bat, Logan Morrison lifted reached a changeup on the outside and hit it hard to straightaway center field, but The Trop held it. Also Jake Marisnick held...

Rays 3, Red Sox 4: Brad Miller results in Rays loss

Patriot’s Day game ends in Boston’s favor Maybe we can blame these errors on early season jitters? No? Okay then. The Rays fall to 2 games under .500 and finish their road trip 1-6 after giving up 4 runs and 9 hits and 1 fateful error that would decide the game. Tampa Bay would compile more hits at 11, but few of them were timely, as they only had 3 runs. 1st inning The Rays would strike early in the 1st inning, putting the first three batters on base. Dickerson and Kiermaier would score two groundouts by Miller and Souza. Logan Morrison would walk to load the bases for Weeks Jr. , but...

Yankees 5, Rays 0: Chase Headley, Yanks Capitalize on Rays Mistakes

Yankees 5, Rays 0: Chase Headley, Yanks Capitalize on Rays Mistakes

Remember: It’s only Game Two. After a raucous Opening Day victory over the Yankees, hope sprung eternal. Logan Morrison was The Babe Reincarnate, the entire lineup looked threatening, Archer was his old self, and the AL pennant was somehow back in reach. Then Game 2 happened. As I write this, I can hear the air being let out of the balloon that is Tropicana Field. Tuesday night’s game wasn’t all that entertaining, so I’ll keep my recap to the point: Chase Headley can baseball and Jake Odorizzi shouldn’t buy a lottery ticket tonight. Chase Headley Laughs at the Shift The...

Logan Morrison’s Opening Day heroics deviate from last year’s struggles

Logan Morrison’s Opening Day heroics deviate from last year’s struggles

Early objections to Morrison reprising his role as the Rays’ primary first baseman were put to rest on Opening Day. Masahiro Tanaka and Logan Morrison started their 2017 seasons deviating from their spring projections. Tanaka entered Sunday’s start coming off a pristine Spring Training, going 3-1 and allowing just one earned run (0.38 ERA) in six starts; Morrison batted just .188/.257/.219 with one run batted in 12 games. Just 15 pitches into his start, Tanaka had allowed three hits (single, double, single), a sacrifice fly, and a walk, but still held the Rays tight to a 1-0 lead....

Season Preview: Logan Morrison

Season Preview: Logan Morrison

Hoping for a turnaround season, Logan Morrison could be a a valuable asset in 2017. Background: Logan Morrison, 29, has had an inconsistent career (you can view his career stats here.) He was drafted in 2005 by the then Florida Marlins and spent the 2006 - 2010 seasons in their farm system. An impressive 2010 season at AAA landed him a spot in MLB All-Star Futures Game and a Marlins call up. He ended up finishing the 2010 season in the majors putting up great numbers, giving hope to the Marlins organization. After his solid 2011 season though, Morrison has never gotten back to a...
