MLB All-Underrated team

  Tampa Bay Rays Ben Zobrist – Photo Credit – Keith Allison What is the definition of an underrated player? Is it a player that is good but your typical casual fan will not know about him? Is it a player that plays on a small market team so you do not see alot of him on national television? Could be a player that plays on a good team loaded with talent so he flies under the...

2014 Fantasy Baseball: Breakout Players — Second Basemen

Every position goes through ebs and flows just like pitchers and hitters do in general. Second base is going through a down period at the moment. Most of the big time stars from the previous decade are either out of the game or are no longer elite players. Robinson Cano is the last big name we will see among the top six guys. Guys like Brian Roberts, Dustin Pedroia, and Ben Zobrist...

Yankees game 122: Kuroda great, offense good in series win

New York Yankees 4 – Tampa Bay Rays 2 Hiroki Kuroda starts for the Yankees and the first inning would continue to haunt the righty. After getting the first out, Ben Zobrist and Matt Joyce would hit a pair of singles to put runners on the corners. A ground out to second baseman Martin Prado would score the first run of the game. On the other side, Rays Jeremy Hellickson would be...

Reaching .500 just another stepping stone as Rays continue climb from depths

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Reliever Joel Peralta slapped catcher Curt Casali's hand near home plate. It was one of the first visible signs that the Tampa Bay Rays, left for dead for so long, were a .500 team once more -- a far cry from where they thought they would be in those idealistic spring training days but a remarkable feat given the winding-and-wretched path they have traveled...

Yankees game 120: Offense held silent behind strong McCarthy start

A walk would put McCarthy in hot water right away, loading the bases with...

August Trade Candidates: Tampa Bay Rays Ben Zobrist

After months of speculation, the Tampa Bay Rays finally traded David Price just hours before the July 31 deadline, sending him to the Detroit Tigers in a three-way deal that netted them Wily Adames, Nick Franklin and Drew Smyly. Since the trade, their already slim playoff chances have dipped below five percent. More trades could be on the way for the Rays. One player that could be...

Daily DraftKings Picks: Wednesday, Aug 6

Yesterday my pitching gambles paid off (Lance Lynn and Danny Duffy) and my offense featured five players with 10+ points. I didn’t get much out of Ben Zobrist or Jose Abreu (surprisingly), which means my team was help somewhat in check — 123.60 points, a small cash in the daily moonshot, and victories in all of my double-ups. But hey, if that’s “in check” then we’re doing...

Fake trade report didn't concern Rays' Ben Zobrist

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- For a moment, Tampa Bay Rays utility man Ben Zobrist was caught up in the craziness of a trade deadline day that will be recalled for a long time. Late Thursday afternoon, as news of left-hander David Price's trade to the Detroit Tigers broke, a fake Twitter account posing as USA Today writer Bob Nightengale posted "news" that Zobrist had been...

Rays beat Brewers again, now game shy of .500

The Rays are playing for a lot these days, not just to continue their improbable climb back to .500 and into playoff contention but potentially to keep ace David Price and others from being traded. And they are playing like it, battling from behind for a second straight night to beat the NL Central-leading Brewers 5-1 Tuesday. "It's kind of funny; we've been playing...

Brewers batters continue to struggle versus Tampa Bay

The Brewers are in a severe offensive funk and aren't winning because of it. For the third straight game, Milwaukee wasted a strong performance from its starting pitcher by providing little offensive support. A four-run eighth inning was enough for the Tampa Bay Rays to send the Brewers to a 5-1 loss at Tropicana Field on Tuesday night. Just like Jimmy Nelson on Sunday and Kyle...

2014 Fantasy Baseball Value: Is Ben Zobrist on the move?

The second wild card has thrown a monkey wrench into the whole trade deadline process. It’s even caused some people to propose pushing the non-waiver deadline back into August. The problem is that too many teams think they are still in the hunt when the deadline comes this Thursday. The Rays are one of those teams caught in no man’s land. They have tradeable pieces in David Price...

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. At first, when he poked right-hander Kyle Lohse's 89-mph fastball toward right-center field, he felt good about his chances to deliver as the Tampa Bay Rays' Mr. Reliable again. Still, centerfielder Carlos Gomez was closing fast, and Loney braced for the best. Then...

Tampa Bay Rays Making Some Noise

Prior to the 2008 season, the Tampa Bay Devil Rays were the laughing stock of baseball. When 2008 rolled around, the team changed their name to the Rays, which resulted in the emergence of an almost new organization. Ever since then, the team that plays their home games in St. Petersburg, Florida has been one of the most consistent teams in the league. Players like Evan Longoria...
