Tampa Bay Rays news and links: Ugly loss; pretty graphs

Let’s move on from the loss and read about deriving wOBA from Statcast data.

MLB: Tampa Bay Rays at New York Yankees Adam Hunger-USA TODAY Sports

The Rays lost in ugly fashion yesterday, and Evan Longoria is upset. Article and quote via Topkin:

“Just sloppy. Just sloppy overall. We've got to figure out a way to clean that up," Longoria said. "Defense is shaky. I don't know who to blame on the collision play. It looked like (Cedeno) didn't really know the infield was in. If he's aware of that, it's a simple play: He just looks at the runner at third and throws it to first and we don't have two guys leave the game hurt.”

Ouch, and also ouch.

If you were working and missed it, here are multiple views of the collision, with quotes from Girardi and Cash about the injuries.

Bill Chastain has quotes from Blake Snell after the loss. Snell was a bit surprised to be pulled, but he had struggled that inning. Cash Considerations!
