PRICE, RAYS AGREE ON 1YR/$14MM DEAL

The Tampa Bay Rays avoided arbitration with ace David Price with a one year/$14MM deal, MLB.com’s Adam Berry is reporting.

WEEKEND ROADIE: A’S – RAYS

WEEKEND ROADIE: A’S – RAYS

  On the last day before rosters expanded, we took the drive back up to the O.co Coliseum for a game I had been looking forward to all season. I love the Tampa Bay Rays for how they built their team into a contender and have sustained it since shocking the baseball world by playing […]

ROYALS’ MOORE MAKES BOLD MOVE TO CONTEND

An already-busy hot stove season saw a high-stakes move on December 9th when the Royals and Rays hooked up for a multi-player trade that brought veteran hurlers James Shields and Wade Davis to Kansas City.

MATT MOORE IS PRETTY GOOD

“Hey Rook! You’re the Game One starter.” No problem for fresh-faced Matt Moore. The curtain-raiser on the 2011 MLB playoffs was a reprise of last year’s ALDS matchup between Tampa Bay and Texas and the familiar script held up. The road team won as the Rays scored a 9-0 win to go up 1-0. Tampa […]

RAYS ARE THE CURRENT MONEYBALL TEAM

RAYS ARE THE CURRENT MONEYBALL TEAM

After last night’s heart-stopping action, the small-budget Tampa Bay Rays are still alive. Not only are they in the playoffs, they’re probably the hottest team going in, with one of the scariest pitching staffs you could ever face in a short series.
