Rays begin a telling week with a victory behind James Loney's clutch hit

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- James Loney watched his soft line drive flutter toward the gap and hoped it would land.

The Final Days Of James Loney

I remember a time when I thought James Loney was going to be the first baseman of the future, that pretty swing, his natural athleticism, boy did he fool us. It’s rare that someone with all the talent that James Loney possesses is unable to put it all together.
