Price shines but Cobb, Rays win 1-0 pitching duel over Tigers

Less than two hours before he would pitch in his old home for the first time since the trade, David Price texted a member of the Rays PR staff and asked if, for old-time sake, they could play the song that always played as Price took the field for the top of the first inning: “Feels Good to be Here,” by Shawty Lo. Of course they did. In-game host Rusty Kath stopped his middle...

Game 2014.125: Tigers at Rays

Baseball Reference Game Preview David Price vs. Alex Cobb GREAT game last night. There’s something to be said for dinosaurs and pitchers written off as perpetual #5 starters. Not only did Ricky P toss his third complete game shutout of 2014 (a feat that has never been accomplished before in baseball’s 900-year history), but he was also part of a couple nicely turned plays where...

Small margin of error: Rays waste elite pitching stretch with sub-par offense

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Before Sunday, the past 12 games were a clinic in quality pitching for the Tampa Bay Rays, the kind of display that's necessary to make an outside chance to reach the playoffs more real. For 12 consecutive games from Aug. 4-16, from right-hander Alex Cobb to right-hander Jake Odorizzi and everyone in between within the rotation and beyond, Rays pitching...

Cobb shuts down Yanks as Rays surge back to .500

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. Usually an $8,100 play on an off day Monday should be reason enough to convince many of you to go with the Cobb. Oh no J-FOH, he has to go on the road to Oaktown and face the Amazing A's!  I know I know diligent commenter but over...

Tampa Bay Rays at Oakland Athletics game review

While the Tampa Bay Rays recently moved their ace, Alex Cobb has been pitching like one of late. Big-name acquisition Jeff Samardzija has mostly performed well since joining the Oakland Athletics. Looking to win a sixth consecutive decision, Cobb takes the mound opposite Samardzija as the Rays open a three-game set in Oakland on Monday night. Cobb (7-6, 3.54 ERA) hasn't lost...

Alex Cobb starting to feel old enjoyment again

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Alex Cobb has felt this enjoyment before. The right-hander's current comfort is similar to the rise he lived in dicing hitters late last season, when he emerged as the Tampa Bay Rays' most dependable starter. 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...
