Tampa Bay Rays
The Tampa Bay Rays hit the road to Baltimore following a 4-3 loss to the Boston Red Sox on Thursday night dressed to impress in the woods.
Its the latest themed road trip for the Rays, who wore letterman jackets before a trip to Fenway Park in April. The three-game series against the Orioles, which begins 7:05 p.m. ET Friday, is part of a six-game road swing that also includes a stop in Toronto.We have so much of that in our clubhouse now, Rays manager Joe Maddon said of the camo influence.
Of course, (designated hitter) Luke (Scott) is one of the perpetrators. (Bench coach) Davey Martinez. Now Westy (equipment manager Chris Westmoreland), our clubhouse guru theyre all over this stuff. We have so many hunters. (Reliever Kyle) Farnsworth. And plus, camo is in right now. Camo actually is in in a fashion sense. Its coming from all different directions. The only part thats uncool in a sense is that its a night trip, and nobody gets to see you. But then again, if youre wearing camo, they wouldnt see anyone.Here were some of the sights before the Rays flew north ...

The Tampa Bays Rays continue to show the rest of baseball that they have the loosest clubhouse in the majors and took this trend of camouflage-themed uniforms to a new extreme.
Even after Thursday's 4-3 loss to the Red Sox, the free-spirited Rays departed for Baltimore decked out in army fatigues, hunting disguises and a variety of camo gear.
The team released a photo of...
Tampa Bay Rays ace David Price was placed on the disabled list after training the triceps in his pitching arm last night against the Boston Red Sox. It marks the first time the Price has been on the disabled list in his career.
An MRI last night revealed that there was no structural damage and the team doesn’t believe it’s a long-term situation for the reigning Cy Young...
For awhile we were seeing a ton of these kinds of clips; soldiers returning home from overseas to surprise their families at football, basketball, baseball games. I remember one that happened during a parade last college football season that still makes me tear up.
This one is a definite tear jerker. Nine-year old Alayna Adams was scheduled to throw out the first pitch at Thursday...
The Rays’ clubhouse is a fun place these days, but no one in Tampa Bay is laughing about David Price’s season.
Price, who won 20 games en route to earning the AL Cy Young award last season, has long been a key character in the debate over which pitcher could crack the $200-million plateau with his next contract. It’s probably unlikely that Price, who has two more years of arbitration...

Tampa Bay Rays LHP David Price suffered triceps tightness on his throwing arm in the third inning of Wednesday’s game, a major blow to a team struggling to hang on the back of the pack of a competitive AL East. The reigning Cy Young Award winner has been off to a tough start at 1-4 with a 5.24 ERA. For reference, Price was 20-5 with a 2...
This was not a souvenir for a lucky fan. In the eighth inning Boston Red Sox third baseman Will Middlebrooks smashed a home run to right field at Tropicana Field. Tampa Bay Rays fans attempted to make a play on the home run, but it went through their hands, bouncing directly to a man who caught it with his face. Much like their fans, the Rays got beat up, losing 9-2 to the Red Sox...
AL Cy Young Award winner David Price has left the Tampa Bay Rays' game against the Red Sox with left triceps tightness.
Price departed with one out in the third inning in Wednesday night's game after allowing an RBI single to David Ortiz.
The left-hander walked toward the plate after delivering the pitch to Ortiz and appeared to grimace.
Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon, a...
As of today, James Loney leads the MLB in batting avg and much desrved. Loney’s well oiled batting eye has gained him acclaim from around the league and now he has has the top spot to prove it. Although Loney has forty less at bats than the man in second place (Miguel Cabrera), it’s still a feat for the rising star to be put in a category with the Triple Crown winner.
BALTIMORE (AP) Matt Joyce hit a go-ahead two-run double in a six-run ninth-inning rally, lifting the Tampa Bay Rays to a 10-6 victory over the Orioles on Saturday, ending Baltimore's franchise-record streak of 109 straight wins when leading after seven innings.
Joyce also homered and finished 3 for 5 with five RBIs.
It was the third straight road victory for the Rays, all...
Kelly Johnson hit a three-run homer and an RBI single, and the Tampa Bay Rays held on for a 12-10 victory over the slumping Baltimore Orioles on Friday night.
Johnson and Yunel Escobar had three hits apiece in Tampa Bay's highest scoring game of the season. Escobar also drove in three runs and Desmond Jennings added two hits and two RBIs.
The Orioles surrendered a season-high...
Thursday night’s game between the Tampa Bay Rays and Boston Red Sox at Tropicana Field was going to be a big one for 9-year-old Alayna Adams, as she was selected to throw out the ceremonial first pitch, an honor she received from the U.S.O. because of her father, Lieutenant Colonel Will Adams, who has been serving overseas in Afghanistan for the better part of two years.
So, maybe I’m wrong. Maybe there is more volatility coming to the closer’s position. What’s happening in Tampa Bay? How about Boston? Read on to see where those jobs are headed.

Fernando Rodney was the surprise of 2012 having a season for the ages. Sporting a 0.60 ERA (2.13 FIP, 2.67 xFIP) and a BB% of 5.3%, Rodney was heralded as a new man. The Rays moved...
