Mr. Phamtastic

The Rays made a bet based on Pham’s exit velocity and the early returns have been fantastic. On the morning of July 31, 2018 the baseball world was in the midst of trade deadline frenzy, with a potential Chris Archer trade garnering a lot of attention. The St. Louis Cardinals were considered a possible Archer landing spot. Early in the day the news broke. The Rays completed a trade with the St. Louis Cardinals. But Archer was not part of it. The Rays acquired outfielder Tommy Pham and $500k in International Free Agent spending pool money for outfielder Justin Williams, left handed...

Marc Topkin's takeaways from Wednesday's Rays-Rangers game

Marc Topkin's takeaways from Wednesday's Rays-Rangers game

OF Tommy Pham is playing with a sore groin and a sorer right ring finger, but he is determined, in his words, to "salvage" his season, and his two home runs Wednesday give him 19 total, five in 28 games with the Rays since the trade to go with a .327 average and 14 RBIs.

Rays morning after: Choi on an impressive pace

Ji-Man Choi doesn't want to get caught up in the numbers game.In leading the Rays to a 3-0 win over the Rangers on Monday, Choi hit his eighth homer in 43 games/146 at-bats since getting called up.That projects over a full season to roughly 30-plus homers, which would be a

TB 3 - TEX 0: Glas(now) not just half full, but overflowing

TB 3 - TEX 0: Glas(now) not just half full, but overflowing

Glasnow and Rays pen completely stymie the Rangers offense. This one was quick. Rays pitching was almost unhittable. Whether it was the tall righty, the prize of the Chris Archer trade, dealing straight fire and filthy 12-6 action breaking balls. Or the Rays bullpen, consistently one of the best in the majors, throwing out tricky lefties like Adam Kolarek, unreal dominant relief ace Jose Alverado, or the wiley vet Sergio Romo with his swiss army knife Slider. Rangers bats had no chance, looked lost and overwhelmed, and were two infield hits away from being no-hit. The Future is...

Cardinals Kolten Wong rips Rays for not calling up brother Kean, says they are "bad organization"

Cardinals 2B Kolten Wong ripped the Rays for not calling up his younger brother, Kean, from Triple-A, saying he was passed over repeatedly."He's just in a bad organization which doesn't give chances to guys who deserve chances. That's tough for him. He's a really good player and

The Rays need an historic stretch to keep their playoff hopes alive

The Rays need an historic stretch to keep their playoff hopes alive

It ain’t over ‘til it’s over The Tampa Bay Rays are the team that just doesn’t quit. After starting the year at with an abysmal record for 4-13, they quietly made their way to the .500 mark and just kinda hung at that level for a couple of months. It was an adequate result for a rebuilding year... but the Rays weren’t done! At the trade deadline, the Rays once again shocked the baseball world. Not by trading away one of their franchise stars — although, they did do that — but by acquiring outfielder Tommy Pham from the St Louis Cardinals. In typical Rays fashion, Pham was...

St. Louis Cardinals: Kolten Wong calls out the Rays

Back in July, the St. Louis Cardinals and Tampa Bay Rays were in headlines together following the trade of Tommy Pham. The headlines are back, but they are less friendly this time around. Rosters have expanded, and MLB teams are reaching into their farm for a glimpse of what is to come.

In appreciation of Ben Zobrist

In appreciation of Ben Zobrist

The 37 year old utility man is doing it all In December 2015 Ben Zobrist signed a four year, $56 million contract with the Chicago Cubs. It was a solid deal for an above average utility player who had just won a World Series ring with the Kansas City Royals and had also been a key part of postseason runs with the Tampa Bay Rays. I want to back up a little bit, the phrase utility man has always bugged me a little bit and I don’t think it does Zobrist justice. It definitely captures the versatility Zobrist brings to the field, but it also indicates that he’s somehow replaceable or less...
