Ranking the 60-win teams

  Credit: Twitter @RaysBaseball 11. Tampa Bay Rays (64-67): With an off year by Evan Longoria, who’s hitting .249 with a .388 slugging percentage, the Rays are an offense by committee. Maybe the return of Wil Myers will give them a boost, they are an easy lineup to shutdown. But as for the starting rotation, Chris Archer is 8-6 with a 3.09 ERA and Alex Cobb is 9-6 with a 3.01...

Evan Longoria Is Even Better Than We Think He Is

Evan Longoria is a former Rookie of the Year, a three time All Star, a two time Gold Glove Award winner, and a three time Top 10 MVP finisher. On top of all that, though, he’s under rated. While Longoria is a a three time All Star, he hasn’t actually made the team since 2010, despite two seasons with WARs greater than 6.6 and two Top 10 MVP finishes. I’m not exactly sure why...

Woes continue for the Tampa Bay Rays

The Tampa Bay Rays’ 2014 season is beginning to look as though it is never going to turn around. Fans and players have hoped that the Rays would figure it out eventually, but it appears that they may be in a hole too deep to dig out of. The Rays have gone from being a playoff team to the worst team in baseball in an extremely short amount of time, which has left the team with very...

Are missed calls bad for baseball?

As a rule, Mondays suck, but as Mondays go, this is always a good one, as the Red Sox play a frightfully early home baseball game. On 2013′s Patriots’ Day, the Red Sox hosted the Rays, and it was 2-1 Boston in the top of the sixth when Evan Longoria batted with two down and runners on the corners. In a full count against Ryan Dempster, Longoria returned a grounder up the middle...
