Series Preview: Rays vs Wendle-less Marlins

Sam Navarro-USA TODAY Sports An injury will keep the traded Rays All-Star on the shelf this week. The Rays host the Miami Marlins for a two game set at Tropicana Field a day after the Tampa Bay Lightning dispatched the (south) Florida Panthers from the NHL playoffs to advance to their sixth conference finals in the last eight years. The Tampa Bay Rays return home after a three game road trip in Baltimore we are all trying to erase from memory. The defense is not what Rays fans have come to expect from this team. Hopefully the day off and some reflected good vibes from...

Isaac Paredes has a new approach in Tampa Bay

Isaac Paredes has a new approach in Tampa Bay

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports And so far it is certainly working Just three days before Major League Baseball’s 2022 opening day the Rays went out and made a substantial roster move: Austin Meadows was traded to the Detroit Tigers. While the move had several different roster implications, it seemed like getting 23-year old infielder Isaac Paredes in return was a big reason why the Rays opted to pull the trigger. He made his presence known this past week as he blasted two 400+ foot homers against his former club. When players are traded to the Rays, we often see...

View from the Catwalks: Rays have an off day to think about what they’ve done

Photo by Greg Fiume/ The Spread of the Opener, Revisiting the Willy Adames Trade, and a Josh Donaldson/Tim Anderson Kerfuffle The Rays got through the week with a 3-3 mark, which doesn’t sound terrible until you consider the games were against the Tigers and Orioles. The Baltimore series in particular stung, as the Rays choked away leads in both their losses to the orange birds. It’s probably safe to say the Rays dominance against the O’s is over. They still sit in second place in the AL East, five games back of the Yankees. The Rays are off today, before hosting...
