Disclaimer: this team has made me much happier than expected after the month of April. But their stats against the Red Sox, and starting pitching of late, made me cringe…
Early exits in his past two starts, giving up a career high number of both hits and runs in his most recent appearance, fastball velocity down...doesn't sound like the pitcher who began the season 8-0.

#ColomeMaybe? No maybe, as post game the Rays announced Alex Colome will be making his major league debut today.
The Rays wrapped up their road trip with a 4-3 loss to the Blue Jays in the 10th, and the team shifted the rotation for the upcoming series against the Yankees.
