Rays pound Yanks, hold them to 2 runs through 8 innings
Best team in baseball now has a 4 game lead
Bartlett's power drought officially over
Maddon plans to keep his starters on a short pitch count.  How's that workin out so far, Joe?
Navi who?  Jaso 3 for 4, now hitting .333
4 stolen bases in 1 inning is better than being caught stealing 4 times in 1 game
BJ Upton has the best bubble gum in baseball
Sonnanstine enters with an 8-run lead in the 9th, leaves with a 4-run lead
Nothing like giving the defending champs some momentum after the game is in hand

Great catch, Navi. Please spend some more time in the batting cages.
Rays continue to beat Cy Young winners with pitching and defense. Now, if they could only start to hit.
Team Batting Average - 21st
Hits - 23rd
Home Runs - 20th
On Base Percentage - 19th
Welcome to the Rays, Hank Blalock. 0-for-3 is positively Burrell-like.
Fans who run onto the field should always get tazed.

Dan Sileo: The reason nobody is calling you about the Rays is because you are such a Yankee homer that all Rays fans stopped listening to you long ago. If this were a major league town, all the Yankee homers would have been driven off our talk radio stations long ago.

The Pat Burrell era is over!
Burrell designated for assignment, Blalock on his way from Durham.
Do the Rays think they are the Yankees or Red Sox by signing terrible free agent contracts?
Now what do we do about the .173 catcher?

Blown Opportunity

Rays rally to tie, then lose in the 11th
Just a small speed bump on the road to the pennant
That's 3 straight losses, for those of you who are keeping score
Lead over Yanks now 1/2 game
Maddon still proud, and still starting guys who are hitting .179
When does Willy Aybar get to platoon with Pena? Meanwhile, Dan Johnson leads the International League in HR's
Hank Blalock is hitting .375 in Durham, while Pat Burrell is hitting .221 in the Majors
Did anybody see that catch Crawford made?

Perfect Again!
Rays just the 3rd team in history to lose 2 perfect games.
Only team to lose 2 perfect games in less than 1 year. (Buehrle 7/23/2009, Braden 5/9/2010).
Best team in baseball is 8th in team AVG.
How can a manager field a lineup with four hitters at .225 or less?
When do the fans start to demand John Jaso?

Vote early, vote often, vote for the Rays!

Cy What???!
Rookie Wade Davis matches former Cy Young winner
Longo keeps going, and going, and...3 HR's in 5 games
Don't look now but Evan is 2nd in MLB in runs scored 
Another rocky save for the still-perfect closer, thanks to some fantastic defense
15,000 less people show up on day without ZZ Top
