Three In Row For Matt Moore

July 10th, 2016

Pitching his way out of town?

Yes, this post is to distract Joe from the uncontrollable vomiting afflicting most Rays fans this season.

It’s official. Matt Moore has recovered from the virus infecting Tampa Bay starters.

Yes, the Rays lost their fifth straight and sank deeper in the A.L. East basement yesterday in Boston, but Moore had his third consecutive solid start. That’s not a coincidence, and Joe sure hopes it means Chris Archer and friends can find their way out of the crapper, too.

On June 7, Moore was hammered in Arizona for five runs in seven innings, ballooning his ERA to 5.56. After yesterday’s two earned runs in six innings, Moore has shaved the ERA down to 4.46, and he’s allowed just four earned runs in his last three starts.

Of course, that may not be a silver lining if the Rays decide the haul they could get in a trade for 27-year-old Moore is too tempting. What a kick in the balls it would be if Moore has a new team in a couple of weeks.

    This is the most mystifying part of the Ray’s season. The inability of this veteran pitching staff to pitch effectively as a group. Not attacking hitters, not pitching inside (Example: Odorizzi last hit a batter in August, 2015), and taking too many pitches to get through the early innings. It wasn’t that long ago that the Rays entire pitching staff had a historic low earn run average in a season.

    Depending on what we get in return, everybody on this team should be available to trade away. Hell, we can finish last with or without them.

    1st Inning, Rays have men at 2nd and 3rd; didn’t score. Red Sox get men on 2nd and 3rd. Score at the end of 1….Red Sox 3 – Rays 0
