Rays 5, Tigers 2: One step closer to their magic number

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports Didn’t we just play these guys? Well hello, Detroit, we meet again. Hopefully, this series will yield slightly better results, as the Rays are hoping to hit that magic clinch number sooner rather than later, and while Tigers fans are surely enjoying non-terrible baseball, the Rays kind of have a division to clinch. Louis Head started things off for the Rays but don’t get too attached, he’s not staying around long. After a 1-2-3 inning, Head’s night was done. The Rays were also quick on the draw in terms of scoring in the bottom of...

Rays Series Preview: Tigers? As in, plural?

Photo by Helen H. Richardson/MediaNews Group/The Denver Post via Just one tiger seems like it’d be a lot. The Tampa Bay Rays return home after a disappointing road trip. The good news is that none of the teams in the division really have made a move with 16 games remaining the Rays hold a significant lead and their magic number has fallen to 9. The Rays hold a 8.0 game lead in the division ahead of the New York Yankees, Toronto Blue Jays, and Boston Red Sox that are all tied for second place and the two Wild Cards in the American League. Baltimore has fallen 43.5...

Rays 2, Blue Jays 0: Back in the Win Column for the 90th Time

Photo by Vaughn Ridley/ Drew Rasmussen’s efficient and effective start along with quality defense fueled the Rays to become the first team in the American League to win 90 games. In a season full of offense, run prevention still matters. The Tampa Bay Rays finally became the first American League team to 90 wins after flirting with the mark and falling short in the previous two games. They didn’t just get a win, they shutdown and shutout the red hot Toronto Blue Jays in a 2-0 win Tuesday night. Before getting into the great performances from the Rays players, you...

Nick Anderson returns to the Rays bullpen throwing 92 mph

Jonathan Dyer-USA TODAY Sports What can the Rays expect from Nick Anderson in 2021? Not much. The Rays pitching is in shambles, both in the rotation (where Dietrich Enns is now starting after IL trips for Shane McClanahan and Chris Archer), and in the bullpen (5.04 ERA, 5.34 FIP, 4.41 xFIP in September), although that has been overshadowed in the baseball world by the collapse of both the Yankees and Red Sox this September. Thankfully, Tampa Bay’s 100-win pace and comfortable lead in the American League East creates a buffer for the team to sort things out before the...

Collin McHugh took the mound as an opener against Alek Manoah. A lot of energy leading off tonight pic.twitter.com/rzqSxiPCqf— Tampa Bay Rays (@RaysBaseball) September 13, 2021 Before anything, it’s best to get this fact out of the way now: the offense did nothing all game long until the top of the 9th inning. The Rays offense, that is. Toronto’s offense did more than enough. McHugh did a good...

Series Preview: Rays vs Jays

Photo by Jon Blacker/MLB Photos via The Tampa Bay Rays head north of the border for the first time since 2019 to take on the Toronto Blue Jays. It will be the third location that have hosted a Rays vs Blue Jays game in 2021 including Dunedin, Florida and Buffalo, New York. Despite the Rays going a bit flat of late (5-5 over their last ten games) only one team was able to make up any ground over the Rays in the American League East. The Toronto Blue Jays have gone 9-1 over their last ten catapulting them from fourth to a tie for second and the Wild Cards in the American...

Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports Rays News The Rays lost two out of three games to the Tigers, and managed to burn through their bullpen in the process of dropping Sunday’s game, which involved two blown leads. Not ideal! I try to remember that we are fortunate that such games have been rare this season. Marc Topkin writes on player “buy-in” — why the Rays can have relievers who pitch different innings and batters who platoon. Of course, as Chris Archer notes in the article, winning makes buy-in easier, but that would be true no matter what approach Cash was taking....
