Too Much Fun

The Red Sox came rumbling into town Tuesday, and I was preparing for disaster. After the three-game debacle against the Yankees, isn’t it just a perfect time to welcome one of the majors’ best offenses to St. Petersburg? Good times were to be had by all, as the Red Sox sent ball after ball into the seats, and Rays pitchers were left shaking their heads, looking for answers.

Well wouldn’t you know, the Rays give up 7 runs in 3 games, win the series, and do some of their best pitching of the young season. Baseball is a funny game sometimes. Nearing the end of April, I still have no idea if the Rays are contenders in the AL East or the division bottom-feeders.

Some of thefoulline.com gang got together Thursday night for the rubber-game of the set, and the trade talks (and the beer) started flowing instantly. By the end of the night, however, one had flowed quite a bit more than the other. My one mission heading into last night was to get Willis to deal me Corey Kluber. Unfortunately, I woke up this morning sans Kluber. After hearing rumors that team Yankeehaters has been pursuing him hard, I feel the need to step my game up. You might want to keep an eye on your inbox today, Willis!

Quick Hits:

– The crowds at the Trop are getting worse. It’s getting to the point where not even Red Sox and Yankees games can save them. We pretty much had section 131 all to ourselves.

– After watching a bigger crowd gather around the TVs in the hallway to watch the Lightning’s win in Detroit last night than there actually were watching the Rays, I now understand how truly low in the pecking order the Rays are in this region.

– Shout out to the rude Boston fan who was talking trash before I even got into the Trop. Everytime I talk to a Boston fan, I’m reinvigorated by my love of the game.

– Rays Those Cowbells is having a really great week! And I’m still down 50 points. The Love Boat Captains are the clear best team right now. Ginger wants #4.

– Nearly 3 full weeks in, and Allan and I haven’t made a deal together yet. Huh?

– Darn you all for getting me interested in Fanduel. I’m doing the research right now to get started. You’re all very bad influences.

– Is BJ Upton still in the major leagues?

 

Good luck to everyone. Finish Week 3 strong!
