    Kevin Cash lost this game. You can not face the heart of this Yankee lineup with a reliever with one pitch. How do you keep him in there after the two run homer and let him load the bases and give up a grand slam.

    The sounds of Yankees silence when that ball cleared Aaron Judge's hand was music to my ears.
  3. Ok he was only good with the Titans. He was god awful everywhere else. He still needs a kidney. I feel bad for him in that regard. http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000001035526/article/albert-haynesworth-in-dire-need-of-kidney-transplant

    Unbelievable comeback. D'Arnaud 3 HRs and all 5 RBIs.

    Cash keeps throwing Pagan in and the Yankees keep hitting home runs off him.
  8. Actually Shula lost more game against the Bucs than he should have given the disparity of the two teams in talent. Schiano swept him in 2012. Koetter swept them in 2016. Remember that brilliant play game call of passing at the 1 yard line on first down with his backup QB and getting picked off on MNF in 2016.
  9. Let's see. Raheem Morris 17-31, Greg Schiano, 11-21, Lovie Smith, 8-24, Dirk Koetter our most successful coach at 19-29. with an overall 55-105. record. No playoff appearances, and two winning seasons in 10 seasons vs Gruden's 7 seasons with a 57-55 record, 4 winning seasons, 1 Super Bowl Championship and 3 division titles and 3-2 playoff record. Gruden won 3 more division titles, one SB championship and two more games with 50 fewer losses in 48 less regular season games coached. So Gruden could have gone 0-48 in 3 seasons and his record would still be 2 wins better than the collective clowns that replaced him in the last 10 years.
  10. I call it running out of position or the wrong way leaving 5 Ol against 3 DL and allowing at least 2 OL on the linebackers at the next level.
  11. Ironically we brought Fat Albert in 2011 after McCoy was injured in the Chicago game in London in 2011.

    Ryan Smith Suspended

    Those placebos he bought were awesome.

    Ryan Smith Suspended

    Turns out the Bucs knew he was suspended before the draft which explains the db picks although last year's secondary performance should have been enough

    The Bucs when Gerald McCoy wanted to play DL dressed up like Medea. That is why they cut him.

    Ryan Smith Suspended

    I knew we should have drafted another db instead of a kicker!

    I wish they kept CJ Cron with the injuries they have this year. His 5 million salary was so cheap relatively that the small market Twins grabbed him off of waivers w/o letting him free agency.

    Cash snatched defeat from the jaws of victory in the way he has used the bullpen. D'Arnaud bails Cash out with a two out homer

    Cutting McCoy was the Bucs Independence Day!

    To be fair, Sean Farrell was a better player than McCoy.
  21. Snell got his groove back in this start. I hope he can maintain it.

    Nice 18 Inning win

    Their base running esp by Choi in the 10th was terrible. Can not imagine shutting the Twins out for 17 innings like they did yesterday.
  23. https://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/27016429/sources-rays-explore-playing-montreal Jeff PassanESPN Facebook Twitter Facebook Messenger Pinterest Email print The Tampa Bay Rays received permission from Major League Baseball's executive council to explore a plan in which they would play early-season home games in the Tampa Bay area and the remainder of the year in Montreal, sources familiar with the situation told ESPN. While the plan is in its nascent stages, the Rays have embraced the two-city solution as the most feasible to saving baseball in the Tampa Bay area after years of failed attempts to build a new stadium in the region, according to sources. The return of baseball to Montreal, which lost the Expos when they moved to Washington, D.C., and became the Nationals before the 2005 season, has long been speculated and has significant support among power brokers in the city, including Stephen Bronfman, the private-equity magnate whose father, Charles, was the Expos' original owner. Under the plan, the Rays would play in new stadiums in both the Tampa Bay area and Montreal, according to sources. The ability to play games early in the season in Florida would preclude the need for a domed stadium, cutting the cost of a new building. A month ago, Bronfman -- who along with Montreal businessman Mitch Garber has expressed interest in taking a minority stake in the Rays alongside owner Stuart Sternberg -- reached an agreement with a developer on a site in Montreal's Pointe-Saint-Charles neighborhood to potentially build a new stadium. The number of home games each city would receive has not been determined, according to sources. Significant hurdles remain for the plan to take root, sources said. Though two cities sharing a team isn't entirely novel -- the Expos played 22 home games in Puerto Rico in 2003, and in the NBA, Kansas City and Omaha split Kings home games in the 1970s -- the long-term viability of the plan remains in question. MLB's executive council, which includes Sternberg, nevertheless gave the Rays permission to explore the sister-city possibility during owners meetings Wednesday and Thursday, according to sources. For more than a decade, the Rays have sought to build a new stadium in Tampa or St. Petersburg, Florida, where they currently play at Tropicana Field. Their lease runs through 2027, and a Tampa Bay-Montreal dual-city plan would necessitate finding a stadium site in Florida as well. The timetable for any potential move likely depends on whether the Rays can strike a deal in the Tampa Bay area for a new stadium, according to sources. The Rays' average attendance of 14,546 is the second lowest in MLB despite their 43-31 record. Their opening-day payroll of around $65 million was among the lowest in baseball. Along with the difficulty in securing a new stadium, a paucity of local revenue and a poor local television deal, the Rays have been seen by other cities as a target for relocation -- a possibility, should the Tampa Bay-Montreal plan fail. A deal with Montreal would keep the Rays in Florida while potentially adding significant revenues to the franchise. Montreal offers a robust corporate base for sponsorships and a fervent fan base that could easily support what would amount to a half-season ticket plan. Other teams could object to the Rays occupying two geographical territories, though the support of the executive council to explore the possibility, sources said, constituted a significant step forward. It is too early in the process, sources said, to answer other questions, such as the name of the team or where playoff games would be held.
  24. Gaines Adams was not bad just not worth the 4th pick of the draft esp since Greg Stylez White might have been slightly better. One game I forgot Adams impact was the win against New Orleans where he hit Drew Brees and helped misdirect a pass to Phillip Buchanan. Juran Bolden was a big almost under rated addition in 2005 in the secondary. Alex Smith was drafted as a receiving TE but he blocked Julius Peppers better than any Bucs OT. Pittman must have injured ankles in 2002 as he went down easier that season easier than any other time in his career here. He had some awful tackles by mysterious blades of grass during the regular season. Cadillac Williams became a complete RB beyond the talent he had when drafted. His blocking and receiving skills really grew. Unfortunately the injuries made him less of the pure runner that the Bucs drafted in 2005.
