  1. Eagles did not kneel but only 5 to 10 members were going to show.
  2. Rays are now at an unprecedented two games over 500. Cash pulled him in the 7th despite having a no hitter. Eovaldi is needed as a starter as the Rays are over taxing their bullpen as it is. Nice boring 6-0 win.
  3. I do not why he did not use Alavrado in the 9th. He was warmed up and his stuff is virtually the same as Schultz who blew the As away with 3 quick strikeouts in the 7th. Roe had the same start in the 8th as Romo. Runners on 2nd and 3rd with no one out with The Rays infield back conceding the run and runner advancement on any ground ball. Roe managed to get 2 strikeouts and a ground out to get out the inning without a run even though the score was only 3-1. Finesse pitcher but can get the strikeout when he needs it. Robertson's HR in the 9th ended up being the game winner.
  4. I am not. Snell wins tonight. Romo almost blew a 3 run lead. I thought they were going to use Alvarado. Romo gave up two runs and nearly gave up a tying solo home run. (just foul). Worst save ever. Roe had runners on 2nd and 3rd with nobody out and got 3 outs w/o a run scoring. Schultz over powered the As. Cash, do not use Romo as a closer. Rays are over 500 for the first time since they were 1-0.
  5. Rays go back to 500 after winning an "exciting" 1-0 in 13 innings against the As. Already there are rumors that the Yankees are going after Chris Archer.
  6. http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/23614235/josh-freeman-retires-cfl-leaving-montreal-alouettes "We would like to thank Josh for his work and dedication. He was a consummate professional throughout camp," Alouettes general manager Kavis Reed said in a statement. "We respect his decision and we wish him the best in the future." Freeman's last NFL action came in 2015, when he started one regular-season game for the Indianapolis Colts, throwing for 149 yards with a touchdown and an interception. The 17th overall pick in the 2009 NFL draft, Freeman was touted as the Bucs' first true franchise quarterback and started 59 games for Tampa Bay. His best season came in 2012, where he threw for 4,065 yards with 27 touchdowns and 17 interceptions. The following season, amid on-field struggles, concerns about his personal life and a highly publicized rift with then-coach Greg Schiano, Freeman was released after three games. Freeman also had stints with the Minnesota Vikings in 2013, New York Giants in 2014, and Miami Dolphins and Brooklyn Bolts of the Fall Experimental Football League in 2015.
  7. I have never seen a poor base running and lack of clutch hitting in the same game. Miller gets picked off of 2nd erasing what would have been a run scoring single. Runners Mallex Smith and Refsnyder on 3rd base with zero outs (Smith) and 3rd base with one out Refsnyder and the Rays could not get them home. Pitiful.
  8. Tommy Romero and Andrew Moore of Seattle who are 2 pitching prospects. They also acquire Wilmer Font from Oakland As. Sell this team to an owner that cares. Colome was having a bad year but Span is a veteran presence this team needs.
  9. Vita Vea gets his deal

    Add Carleton Davis to the signing list. https://www.bucsnation.com/2018/5/24/17392322/buccaneers-sign-second-rounder-carlton-davis-bucs-auburn
  10. http://www.tampabay.com/blogs/bucs/2018/05/24/bucs-reach-agreement-on-a-four-year-14-82-million-contract-with-first-round-pick-vita-vea/ The Bucs have reached an agreement on a contract with Washington defensive tackle Vita Vea, the team's first-round pick. Terms of the deal were not released, but Vea is expected to receive a four-year contract worth $14.82-million that includes an $8.861-million signing bonus. The deal is fully guaranteed and includes a club option in the fifth year. That leaves two second round picks, Southern Cal running back Ronald Jones and Auburn cornerback Carlton Davis, as the only players from the Bucs' 2018 draft class who remain unsigned. Vea, selected 12th overall by the Bucs, is projected to at least be in the rotation with Beau Allen and Mitch Unrein at defensive tackle opposite Gerald McCoy.
  11. Vasi's incredible save

    Lightning breaks the road game winning streak. They now lead 3-2.
  12. Back to Roots?

    They are creeping back to respectability after a horrendous start. 6 straight wins after that horrible Orioles series. Lots of nagging injuries but now the Rays are 22-22.
  13. Vasi's incredible save

    Road team has won all 4 games. Bolts have the home edge so they need to win 2 at home or one at home and one on the road.
  14. Vasi's incredible save

    Vasy stole that game for Tampa.
  15. Dungy in the ring of honor

    He drafted Gruber and Tony Mayberry. Those guys were still around almost a decade after he was fired. His first two drafts in 1987 and 1988 were very good. He just ran his players in the ground with his practices. The worst coach in Buccaneer history was Leeman Bennett. He was 4-28 and could have been worse than that. In 1986, Culverhouse did a salary dump that was so awful that it hard to blame Bennett completely for the second 2-14 season.
