Rays vs. Angels GDT 2: I dream a dream

Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

At least I think I did.

Loading Scores

After all my ranting and raving about the team leaving players on base, the Rays went out and scored 7 runs -- oh, they also managed to still leave 13 players on base, good for 3rd most in the season.

Imagine if this team actually got, I dunno, maybe just a single, a soft little duck snort to shallow right field, when the bases were loaded? They'd score some runs! That's what would happen! It would be amazing!

Oh, and for those of you keeping score by hand in you mysterious bunker-homes:

  • Yunel Escobar is now at 3.9 WAR, still more than good enough for No. 1 among AL shortstops and No. 3 among MLB shortstops.
  • Roberto Hernandez -- after his bullpen appearance which was more like a late start -- has improved his career-best numbers yet again: 18.0% K-rate, 5.3% BB-rate, and a 3.54 SIERA. If I had to choose between him and Jeremy Hellickson, guess who'd I take.
  • Since the one-day series in Kansas City, Evan Longoria has hit .118/.211/.118 for a .328 OPS. But maybe yesterday's two-hit game is the sign of good things to come.

I dreamt about nuclear weapons and office chairs in minivans last night. Actually, other than the whole office chairs thing, my dream was pretty similar to the storyline of Final Fantasy VII, Disc 1.

Is anyone else getting affected by these late start times?
