From a heartbreak loss to ... rookie dress-up night? The Tampa Bay Rays lost to the New York Yankees on Thursday in wild fashion, seeing a no-hitter from right-hander Alex Cobb through 7 1/3 innings become a 5-4 defeat at Yankee Stadium after relievers Brad Boxberger and Jake McGee, both usually reliable, allowed four runs and three hits as Tampa Bay fell to 70-77. Still, Rays'...

DraftKings – Puff Puff Pass the Corn Cobb Pipe

Don't be confused, I don't want you to pass on Alex Cobb today. I want you to inhale his awesomeness and value today and play play play him.

The enjoyment has been hard to recapture for much of this year. It's a sign of how difficult achieving consistency can be on the mound, where...
