In 19 games as a shortstop Ben Zobrist has hit .304/.377/.493 with a +1.3 UZR. #Rays  +Tampa Bay Rays 
The Tampa Bay Rays have been crippled with injuries this year, having lost Wil Myers, Jeremy Hellickson, Matt Moore, David DeJesus, and, as of June 24th, shortstop Yunel Escobar. Lucky for the Rays...

God alone made it possible for you to be in Christ Jesus. For our benefit God made Christ to be wisdom itself. He is the one who made us acceptable to God. He made us pure and holy, and he gave himself to purchase our freedom. –1 Corinthians 1:30

Not much of a reveal, to be honest. Just get to see "Nile" "Four Horsemen" "Burning" "Smoke" blah blah blah. #xmen

Jake Odorizzi dominated today and is striking everyone out at a historic rate for a rookie starter and is now 3rd in the majors in K/9 behind only Yu Darvish and Stephen Strasburg. Good company, no? ‪#‎Rays‬ +Tampa Bay Rays 
Jake Odorizzi was not supposed to have an out-pitch. His strikeout rates were not supposed to transfer from the minor leagues to the major leagues. Well, in a small sample size of 77.2 innings, his...

I'd hate to see him go but I'd understand it.
The Rays still have the worst record in the game and sit a baker's dozen games out of first place in the AL East. The team has a lot of trade assets for contending clubs but, the one that I could s...

If you missed this you gotta see it. I love his reaction when the ball comes back after he hit it into the pitching machine. #Rays
Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Matt Joyce does the improbable and hits a ball that lands directly back into the pitching machine which then fires the pitch right back at him.

Greg Maddux was convinced no hitter could tell the speed of a pitch with any meaningful accuracy. To demonstrate, he pointed at a road a quarter-mile away and said it was impossible to tell if a car was going 55, 65 or 75 mph unless there was another car nearby to offer a point of reference.

“You just can’t do it,” he said. Sometimes hitters can pick up differences in spin. They can identify pitches if there are different releases points or if a curveball starts with an upward hump as it leaves the pitcher’s hand. But if a pitcher can change speeds, every hitter is helpless, limited by human vision.

“Except,” Maddux said, “for that [expletive] Tony Gwynn.” (Washington Post)
