The Rays Tank: RISP Madness

Strength & Honor

This morning, Darren Viola, better known at @RRepoz on Twitter and Repoz at Baseball Think Factory, offered this tweet this morning:

That got me thinking about how that particular split is trending over the years and how the Rays have performed against the league average throughout franchise history. The results: the league is definitely trending down but the Rays have been all over the place including hitting .285 in 2005!

Other news you can use:

  • Roy Halladay is (not) broken!
  • Wait, other players do this too?
  • Chris Lund reviews the tragedy of baseball expectations. When the feelings gone and you can't go on...
  • Bill Petti reviews how the league adjust to hitters over time.
  • RaysProspects reviews the hitting prospects down on the farm
  • Can anyone explain why Brett Lawrie was sliding into second last night on a flyball to centerfield? The ump made the right call on him last night but Lawrie should have been out on the sheer stupidity of sliding into second on a ball he apparently read as one heading into the gap. It appears Lawrie has more faith in Upton's arm than Upton himself and that's saying something.
