Colome is going through a rough patch. He has pitched a lot. We need Snell to go seven innings today because the pen is worn out.
Real Rays showed up last night.

Snell even when he throws 5 shut out innings wears out the bullpen. I do feel bad for Cash because it is Russian roulette on which member of the bullpen is going to implode next.
Erasmo can not always be expected to go two or three innings and hop back and forth from starter to long reliever.
Mallex Smith is making me miss Kiermaier less and less.

Need to take 3 out of 4 with Boston if they have any designs on winning the division.
I wasn't too optimistic going into this season, but this team is really showing me something. Might be one of those situations where it's a bad time to have a 4 day break now when the team is so hot, but in the past, we have struggled leading up to the ASG so this is a good sign. But if we are still in it this close to the trading deadline, they still need to make moves to improve the bullpen. And hold onto Alex Cobb, even though he's in a walk year. Now if only Longoria could get hot too, they may really take off.

He did get two clutch RBIs today. Upset that Lomo did not get Dickerson home from third with less than 2 outs. I am a big believer in productve outs. Rays had two sacrifice flies today although the Boston LF created one. Yesterday's win was a sacrifice fly by Sucre while Boston could not tie with a productive out in the ninth.

i am glad I taped the game last night. Rays won 2-1 but there was not a lot of hitting and scoring. Interesting game tonight.
Rays win 6-3 with two of the runs coming off a garbage time homer in the 9th. Sucre shows the touch with men in scoring position and Logan Morrision hit homers.
Cobb went 7 2/3. Bullpen should be rested.

That loss was on Cash yesterday. He said he did not want to use Boxberger three days in a row. Box threw three pitches Saturday and got out the batter he faced. Lrt's use Humbo Diaz
who gave up a two run homer Saturday (went DFA after the game) and a rookie reliever in a tied game.

Sucre who has played well had a bad game in that loss. He missed two tags in that game. Nick Franklin's slide was a great slide. Sucre did not have the ball in time to block the plate
The second miss Sucre had the ball in plenty of time and could have blocked the plate and made an easy out. He stayed back and gave up the run on a ball that beat the runner by .a mile. The new rules allow the catcher to block the plate but ou can not block the plate without the ball anymore.
Last night with 2 outs and no one on in the ninth down 3-2, the Rays performed a miracle. Ramos gets a hit. Mallex Smith pinch runs and Casilla loses it. The first pitch he throws a wild pitch to get Smith to second, Mallex Smith steals third. Casila walks Brad Miller. Hechavarria hits the first pitch for a game tying single.pitch. Shane Peterson follows up with a 3-2 base hit go ahead run.
Mallex Smith destroyed the As reliever as a pinch runner. Colome punched the As out in the 9th but Erasmo was the MVP with three great innings of middle relief. Snell is hell.
We need to keep searching for another starter in the farm system
