Gameday Thread for remaining League Championship games

Photo by Scott Kane/ Rays are out (sob) but we still like to watch. Share your thoughts here. Sorry not to post this earlier, but I was observing the customary 48 hours of mourning following the demise of my team’s season. We all agree that we want the Yankees to lose, right? I had hoped they’d be swept but too late for that. As for the NL, I’m jumping on the Nats bandwagon because Sean Doolittle has a twitter thread showcasing independent bookstores in every city he visits. This man deserves a WS appearance! Use this thread to share your rooting interests, and comment on...

View from the Catwalks: End of the line, beginning of the next one

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports Rays season ends in the ALDS This season ended shorter than we all would have wanted. The Rays team proved a lot of folks wrong each step of the way this year. They proved 2018 was no fluke and that it was just the beginning of something. This year they won 96 games. They toppled the Oakland A’s on the road in front of 52,000+ rowdy people and made the Coliseum grow quiet. They then took the Houston Astros, the best team in baseball and one of the very best teams assembled in decades in the sport, to the very limit. They went toe-to-toe with a...

Rays: 1, Astros: 6 - Rays’ magical ride ends at the hands of Gerrit Cole

Photo by Bob Levey/ This Rays’ team is special Win or go home. Game 5. Surprisingly I’m not stressed out. That is probably going to change. We got knocked down. We punched back. Now we need to finish the fight.#StayHungry pic.twitter.com/lu13sor5AK— Tampa Bay Rays (@RaysBaseball) October 10, 2019 Let’s GO! Cole started the Rays out with two strikeouts of Meadows and Pham, but fan favorite Ji-Man Choi worked a full count walk to give the Rays their first baserunner, but Travis d’Arnaud would fly out to end the 1st inning. Still the Rays worked Cole to about 20...

Rays announce roster for ALDS game five

Rays announce roster for ALDS game five

Photo by Jane Tyska/MediaNews Group/The Mercury News via The Rays are hoping Sogard can be so good. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. It’s an adage oft cited by those who think change is scary, but also those who know when a good thing is works, why mess with it? For the Rays, who announced their lineup for ALDS game five against the Houston Astros on Thursday afternoon, they seem ready to stick to a tried and true formula, with one interesting shift. The batting order includes a few positional shuffles, and also the inclusion of Eric Sogard at second base instead of Brandon...
