The Twins have a pitching coach now too.

According to sources (someone else’s, definitely not mine), the Twins are hiring Tampa Bay AAA pitching coach Neil Allen to take over the same role in Minnesota’s major league organization. In general, I like the move. Would you like me to expand upon that opinion? Sure thing. First, I like that the Twins were willing to go outside of the organization in order to add members...

From dirt to ice: Rays' Alex Cobb swings by Lightning practice

TAMPA, Fla. -- How can a major-league pitcher pass time in the offseason? Trading dirt and leather for ice and blades is one way to create a memory. Friday, Tampa Bay Rays right-hander Alex Cobb dropped by Amalie Arena for Tampa Bay Lightning practice. Oh, he was more than a bystander. He strapped on skates and received shooting tips from Steven Stamkos, one of the NHL's most...

Gloves, bats let Tribe down at worst time

Follow me back to a year ago next week. Your Cleveland Indians played the Tampa Bay Rays in the AL Wild Card game. I sat in my regular spot inside of Progressive Field and watched as the offense could do next to nothing against Rays starter Alex Cobb. When they did actually put runners on base, each Tribe hitter seemed to tense up and either get too over-anxious, or swung like they...

Rays' rookie dress-up night follows disappointing loss to Yankees

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'...
