Rays position analysis: Relief pitchers

The offseason has arrived, and the time has come for the Tampa Bay Rays to study what went right and wrong from a season that ended short of October. This week, we focus on relievers, an area where Jake McGee and Brad Boxberger emerged as an effective late-inning duo, one that manager Joe Maddon affectionately dubbed "Jake and the Box."

For one night, intuition leads Rays astray against Royals

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Salvador Perez jogged to home plate in mostly silence. In an alternate ending, a gong would have rang beyond right field at the end of this half inning, an electric guitar would have sounded over Tropicana Field's loudspeakers and the Tampa Bay Rays would have celebrated another series victory in their more-real-by-the-minute renaissance. Instead, there was...

Closer Report, Week 11

The job in Tampa isn't as pretty as it used to be, as the team is super underachieving, and not in a superhero-footed pajamas kinda way. Joe Maddon looks like he needs an executive parachute, even though he is a hoot to listen to during an interview. I think he is waiting for someone to jump and run with the job. Jake McGee, Joel Peralta or even the artist formally known as Leo...
