Pounding Price

David Price

The Rays made Astro whimper

Heck yeah, the Price was wrong!

The Rays have cooked up wicked mojo against their former ace, David Price, haven’t they?

Their success against the left-hander continued again yesterday in a 4-0 win over the Stinkin’ Saux at the Trop, tagging Price for four runs and nine hits in 6 1/3 innings. That was more than enough after a stellar outing by Matt Moore, who handcuffed Beantown batters by allowing no runs and three hits in seven innings.

Joe feels relieved. At last, the Rays scratched out a series win. The good guys hadn’t taken a series since winning two of three games against the Mariners from June 14-16.

Finally, the drought is over!

Joe has to hand it to Brandon Guyer, who broke through big-time after returning from a 23-game stay on the disabled list with a left hamstring strain. He went 2-for-4 with two RBIs yesterday, including a 425-foot solo home run to left-center field in the second inning. Guyer proved once more that he’s not just another dude by adding to his RBI total in a meaningful way.

It’s hard to shake the frustration of the past two weeks. But winning two of three games against Boston is a good start.

Onward and upward!

    Why Coach Cash-less didn’t have Guyer starting from the beginning of the year is mind boggling ! It took an injury to get him in there. He had earned it from last year and spring training. Instead, put Desmond Jennings in as starter. The front office wanted to prove to everyone than they didn’t waste a high draft pick on him. Jennings still batting under .200 with All Star break coming soon. Too stubborn.

    Brandon Guyer is a great ball player. The fact that the Rays don’t see this is a big problem. He’ll probably end up with the Red Sox and will be a pain in our butts for a decade.

    I’m glad David Price got paid. He was a great player and a great team mate.

    It is getting pretty obvious that cash is not a MLB manager. Look at the collapse versus the Tigers for yet another example of his ineptitude: pulling Matt Andriese who was cruising through 3 innings of 27 pitch relief for Garton who promptly allowed 4 singles in a row (yes that moron cash kept him in for 4 batters) followed by Erasmo Ramirez melting down to seal the worst loss in Rays history (losing after being up by 5 after 8 innings). Stu has to can this guy!

    Give the Rays credit, they’re getting better at riding the see-saw lifting that 400 pounder sitting on the other side just off the ground rather than grunting and staying put.
