First consecutive complete games for a Rays pitcher since 2002
Rays take sole possession of 2nd place
No Respect: Rays slide in the ESPN Power Rankings despite going 7-3 in the past ten days and closing to 3 games of 1st place.  Somehow, 3rd place Bosox rate higher.  We love you too, ESPN.

Time to push the button yet?

If we get to 0-10, do the Rays offer free parking again?
At 0-15, will they lower ticket prices?
We're trying to say positive things.  Really.  Cowbell Posse has a tremendous inventory of nice things to say about the Rays, if they earn them.  Please.

AL East Slip-Up

Price goes 7 but Rays slide to last place in division
It's okay, because who cares about scoring runs when you can eat ribs and premium burgers?

Don't worry, B.J.  Every Little League ump knew that was obstruction
Who needs aging stars when we've got Zorilla?
