Rays 10 Astros 3: Not so fast, Astros!

Rays 10 Astros 3: Not so fast, Astros!

Photo by Julio Aguilar/ A great team win keeps Rays alive in ALDS Let me start by saying that getting to recap a win-or-go-home playoff game is a new experience for me. So whatever the outcome, how cool is it to be in this position? With that said, could this game have started out worse? With one out, Altuve, on a full count, homered over the centerfield fence, Not ideal, but Altuve’s really good. Then, with two outs, Alex Bregman — also very good — walked. Then of course Yordan Alvarez’s ground ball found the gaping weak link on the infield — Yandy Diaz playing third. Diaz...

Yandy Diaz’s postseason heroics have been hard-earned

Yandy Diaz’s postseason heroics have been hard-earned

Photo by Ezra Shaw/ For the Cuban-born player, getting to the top of his game started with leaving his home behind. A week before the Wild Card game, it seemed to many that Yandy Diaz’s return from the injured list was being hastened by the Rays to a point of perhaps being risky. Surely they wouldn’t put his health on the line just for a chance to use his bat, but still, were they sure he was actually ready to play? On Wednesday afternoon the team released their Wild Card lineup, and not only was Diaz starting the game, he was hitting lead off. It was implausible that a man who...

The five biggest moments from the Tampa Bay Rays Wild Card victory

Stan Szeto-USA TODAY Sports Almost everything went right for the Tampa Bay Rays during Wednesday’s Wild Card Game victory over the Oakland Athletics. From Yandy Diaz leading off the game with a home run, to Charlie Morton tight-roping his way out of danger all night long, to another Diaz blast, to just absolute bullpen dominance; the Rays were literally in control of this game from the very first at-bat. Going to be hard to choose, but let’s go through and decide the top 5 best moments from last night’s action. Yandy sets the tone Have to start with Yandy Diaz’s leadoff blast,...

Mike Brosseau in the spotlight

Mike Brosseau in the spotlight

Stan Szeto-USA TODAY Sports The Wild Card game was always meant to be for Brosseau. Kevin Cash’s line up for the Rays first playoff appearance since 2013 certainly had a few entries that left some of us scratching our heads. Yandy Diaz — the guy who was on the IL until like two days ago — leading off? And starting at second base, a position where the Rays have some depth (despite the unfortunate Eric Sogard injury), was Michael Brosseau — a rookie who debuted in Oakland only a few months ago. Were these really the best choices for a win-or-go-home game? Diaz proved he was well...

Tampa Bay Rays to activate Yandy Diaz, per report

Photo by Sarah Stier/ Diaz has been on the Injured List since late July and was expected to be out for the season The Tampa Bay Rays are on the verge of making a massive addition — both figuratively and literally — to their active roster as they’re planning to activate infielder Yandy Diaz from the 60-day Injured List ahead tomorrow’s season finale against the Toronto Blue Jays.
