    When can we expect the Rays to "go away"?

    Only when less than 10 people show up at their home game. It's an official MLB rule. They lose the team.

    So sad, they have a terrific team, with a great FO down there....and nobody cares. They should lose that team tomorrow.

    Re: Tampa's Starting Pitchers

    I said they'd be in it to the end (the "last week"). I didn't mean 7 Gb with 8 to play either, as softy claimed I'd say by this time of year.

    The thing that gets me about softy, is that year after year, he talks up how important starting pitching is through the dog days of summer into September. When I tried to confront him on why he thought TB would "wilt", he claimed the staff was "over-rated" and that Hellickson would "crumble like a rookie during the dog days". 

    I knew this team would hang around, since they have 5-6 very good to great YOUNG arms, but more importantly most also have had
    pressure experience to date.

    I had expected Jenning to be on the big club all year. Perhaps, he should have been. Longoria's injury and slow recovery hurt them bad. Pen depth & timely hitting as well.

    I still don't think they will win the WC, but they are on pace to meet my projection of 90-92 wins.

    The question the Rays are asking is when the Sox will go away? The Sox are going very quickly. No life and two teams that probably will catch them.

    Puhhleeze people.

    Can we stop beating these two dead horses?

    MLB baseball plays 162 games because each one is important.
    May the best teams make the playoffs.

    Go Red Sox!

    If the Rays succeed and stay within their budget, who cares whether Tampa Bay approaches the attendance of its rivals.

    Baseball games are meant to be watched hill...plain and simple. To a certain extent, if we look at baseball as a business, you're right, BUT IT IS A SPORT!

    Most of the folks in Fort Meyers, Tampa Bay, St. Pete (average age in West Florida is...?) are asleep before the night games are three innings old could be the problem.

    Would you rather hang out at some of the best beaches in the world with girls walking around in bikini's FOR FREE or sit in a humid, hot stadium at $40 to $50 minimum when you could just watch the game on your dvr that night? The humidity is something awful sometimes. That's the problem.

    Re: Tampa's Starting Pitchers

    It was easy to see before the season started that the Rays would have one of the best starting pitching staffs in the majors. That proved to be true. And now they just added possibly the best rookie pitching prospect in the game not named Strassberg. They are a real problem. This is probably going to go down to the wire. When Wade Davis beat them the other day it was like a dagger to the heart.

    Their starting staff is not only strong, but it is deep. Alex Cobb looked very good in 9 starts this year as well. Niemann and Davis would lots of team's number 1's or 2's.

    At the end of this series, if the Rays sweep, that would be 9 straight wins vs. the Sox to end the season. THAT is pure owning of another team. They have been killing the Red Sox for several seasons now. Pitching, Defense and Speed has done it for them. Madden may very well be the best Manager in baseball and they have a great front office.

    And they had enough depth to trade Garza before the season.

    moonslav59 - just looking at the era's I would guess Tampa might have had 3 or 4 starters with 15+ wins had there been better offense?
