Dismal road trip goes from bad to A-wful
Trade rumors get to Shields in the 4th, ERA now over 3
Joyce heroics too little, too late, again

Rays continue to lose ground to Sox, Yankees.

Rumor mill swirls
Will Rays be parting with Shields, Upton, Farnsworth, Damon?
The Cubs need a mascot, could Raymond be traded for prospects?

Rays walk right into a loss. 

It's lights out at the Trop - is it lights out on the Rays season too?
Would you still like to be in an outdoor stadium when lightning strikes?
Hey Rick Sutcliffe, we don't like you either.

Rays waste 16-inning opportunity to gain ground
Now 7 games back and dropping
Good news is only 5.5 games back in the Wild Card
Great job by the guys in the ESPN Booth - knowing who would manage the Rays in the event that the manager and bench coach get tossed, knowing who the emergency catcher is, and knowing what city the Rays play in.  
The Trop was full of Rays fans but you wouldn't know it by the crowd shots on TV.

1st Place Sox come to town.  Are you going to see the Sox or the Rays?
Home team has a chance to gain some ground in the AL East race.
Rays fans need to step up, and fill the Trop this weekend!

Big E James
Shields pitches a gem, but throws the game away in the 7th.
Hey S-Rod, make sure you look the ball into your glove.
Congrats to the St Pete Times for putting the Derek Jeter above the fold on the Sunday Sports section.  Way to support the local team.  
Rays Greatest Point Ever?  You decide.

No Containment
Rays can't stop Yankees, Jeter.
Sorry Wade Boggs.  Price lets Jetes become the 2nd player to get his 3000th hit on a home run.
While you were reading this Jeter just got 5 more hits off the Rays.
