CHEESE & WHINE: Flashbacks

Rays: 1
Phillies: 10

  • Winston Abreau. 2 and 2/3 innings, 3 K's, 1 BB, 1 hit, no runs in relief of David "I'm the new Kaz" Price. That'll do.
  • That's it.


  • Flashbacks. I couldn't help but feel sick to my stomach as I flashed back to the Fall Classic and how the Rays looked equally foolish last night as they did then. What is it about the Indians and Phillies that bring out the worst in the Rays? The Phils had lost 8 of their previous 9 games and just like last fall the Rays managed to make them look like a legitimate champion. Infuriating.


  • Life was easier when we had no expectations for the Rays.


  • Nope.

ugh, i totally agree. that said, i'd almost prefer to lose a blowout than a(nother) close game. hopefully, last night's loss is more infuriating than it is deflating, and the rays can come out swinging tonight.
