    The Rays essentially replayed yesterday’s defeat at the hands of the Oakland A’s by losing with both bad pitching and poor offense today 7-1.  SP Andy Sonnanstine struggled through 4 innings allowing 10 hits and 7 ER to skyrocket his ERA to 7.78.  Lance Cormier came in to mop up the long relief and did a nice job for 3 solid innings giving up 0 hits and 0 runs.  Dan Wheeler echoed Cormier’s effort in the 8th by allowing 0 hits and 0 runs.    

    The offense was pitiful, hate to say that but you saw the same thing I did.  The Rays manufactured 1 run early and that was all the noise they made.  Any hint of a rally was quickly put to rest by a double play or some sort of easy out.  Carl Crawford was the only Ray to manage any sort of offense going 2 for 4.  CC accounted for half of the offensive effort in this game as the Rays managed only 4 total hits.  BJ Upton, Evan Longoria and Pat Burrell were all ‘0’fer at the plate with Longo and Burrell eeking out a free pass a piece.  

    After watching today’s game I am a bit concerned.  We have won only 1 series to this point and are falling far behind the AL East leaders.  Granted yes, it’s early BUT to this point I have not seen anything to indicate the Rays are improving.  Shortly the first month of the season will be behind us and by all indicators we will be sitting in the cellar.  The way the Rays are playing right now realistically they don’t stand a chance once Boston rides into The Trop for next weekend’s match up. 

    The Rays will head to Minnesota for their last regular season series in the dome.  I will be looking for changes in the way the offense is working the count and their situational hitting.  

    Come on Rays …let’s right this sinking ship!

      I know exactly what will happen if the Rays continue to play like they are. The fans(and I use that term VERY LOOSELY)will quit coming to the games. I moved here 5 years ago, and the fans here are the MOST FAIR WEATHER FANS I have ever seen in my life. Tampa Bay doesn’t deserve this franchise, because they DON’T SUPPORT IT!
      I am a fan win or lose and will be in my usual seat on Thursday against Boston.

      The big problem with the fanbase here is that most of them are transplants and continued to follow their original teams. Due to the poor management/results of the original regime the fans never bought into this franchise until now. I think to a certain degree you are right but I also think if the Rays can turn this around and be competitive they will maintain a good fanbase. The fans need more than just 1 year to accept this franchise has really turned that proverbial corner. Tampa Bay DOES deserve this franchise! As a self proclaimed fan I’d expect you to be encouraging the fans rather than slamming them — think that’s going to help them show up??!!
