A Little Pricey: Rays-Sox Gamer I

The Rays own the Red Sox thus far at 5-1 and swept them at the Trop at the tail end of the Sox’ 10-game slide.  David Price did his best to break it up this past weekend, spotting the Sox 5 in the 1st before Tampa eventually won in extras.  I wonder if his relative mediocrity will drive down his…wait for it…price at the trade deadline, as injuries and a regrettable offense have left the Rays fighting for 4th place with the Red Sox (only the Blue Jays have a positive run differential in this division right now…an extremely respectable +30 at that…only LA at +45 and Oakland at +100(!!!) are better in that regard in the AL).

Anyway, Workman is the guy who gets the call for the Sox in what is likely to be a string of rookies starting in place of the thus-far-crappy Doubront and thus-far-even-crappier Buchholz.  If we can’t win (and they can win 5 in a row if they do tonight!), at least we can watch the kids play.

  • Can we have the Tampa Bay Rays moved to the Mexican League or something? I am sick and tired of those douchebags. And send that umpiring crew right with them.

  • Watching Pierzynski chirp his way around the bases on his walkoff triple was suuuuuper-satisfying after the Rays (particularly Price) were such punks earlier in the game.
