A Tampa Bay Rays Blog: Ball on a Budget
Editor for Rays Colored Glasses and contributor to DRaysBay. There's nothing better than walking in NYC with a Rays hat and seeing the confused faces.
Between Matt Moore and a (seemingly) prolific offense, suddenly all the writers who jumped off the Rays bandwagon are right back on.

Where would the Rays be without Evan Longoria? The star third baseman had a huge week, hitting .464 with 3 homers and 11 RBI to lead the Rays to a 5-2 record, and was named the AL Player of the Week.
The changeup giveth and the changeup taketh away, leading to both success and failure for Cobb and Hellickson.
Scott Kazmir dominated on his way to his victory since 2010, striking out 7 while walking 1 in 6 inning of work.

While Matt Moore pitched extremely well again for the Rays, Scott Kazmir took a huge step forward in his second start for the Indians.
Wil Myers slammed his first Triple-A Durham but the timing was terrible–the positives of Myers' homer and Durham's doubleheader win was overshadowed by Hak-Ju Lee's season-ending knee injury.
Would the Rays offense be better if Wil Myers was in the major leagues? Jonah Keri, Baseball America, and MLBTR all weigh in.
David Price was struggling, but it didn't take very long for us to get right back to talking about his trade value.
