    Looks like our annual no hitter/perfect game.

    Doing a great job of spoiling no hitters after the 6th inning this past week.

    No, but it sure was nice to show Cuba how we do things in Murica!

    But seriously, I enjoyed the coverage of that whole event. Lots of love for Chris Archer

    Im just hoping we can get Moore and Cobb healthy for a majority of the year.

    Interested to see how the new additions of Corey Dickerson from the Rockies and Brad Miller at SS from the Mariners impact the lineup.

    Really weird moves but potential for a lot of value. #Raysway

    I really like this club, guys. Love the Miller, Dickerson and Pearce additions. If Moore can pitch the way he has all spring, we got a shot to contend for a Wild Card. I'm worried about the back end of the bullpen, but think the starters will be good enough to even out a shaky pen.

    So, our Archer hasn't been so sterling thus far. Also, Miller and Morrison are a combined 4-48. Fucking woof.

    Moore and Smyly have been impressive.

    Pretty sure he goes back down after tomorrow.

    The stove is hot, fellas. Big fan of the Ramos signing, and MLBTR has us poking around a couple bats, including Joey Bats.

    Also, we went like the entire season without posting last year. Let's do better this year.

    I think early on we all knew we weren't even going to contend. Miller at SS was a nice surprise but Dickerson was disappointing. I love the Ramos signing but he won't be ready until June.

    That’s probably the least likely trade.

    I expect the Rays will look quite different from this years team.

    Hopefully that means no Brad Miller.

    Longo, Hech, Duffy (:pray:), Bauers around the infield with Ramos behind the plate. C-Dick, KK and Souz in the outfield with a veteran bopper we take a flyer on at DH.

    Rotation:
    Archer
    Odo
    Snell
    Andriese
    Faria

    I assume my boy B-Mills will be gone. Hopefully he goes and hits 30 home runs with someone else next year. Not sure they will keep both Hech and Duffy if both are healthy. They have good trade values to get a better bat.

    Went to the Rays game today and can officially offer no scouting report. Gonna be a long few years just hope Tampa gets to see the benefit of the obvious tanking.

    Smoldering hot take: this team will hover around .500 and play much better than most assume they will.

    Was eating dinner (at Surf Shack of course), and left after the top of the 8th assuming we had lost. It was fun when my red sox fan neighbor pulled up the final score because he wanted to know how much they won by an hour later.

    If you’re interested in such things this is a nice breakdown of the top prospects in the system. Since the team will suck ass this year perhaps there’s a window in the next 4 where we can win a few before the good players are raided or traded away again. Sorry for the link I’m on mobile.
