Kevin Cash spoke after yesterday’s loss.
Cash on Miguel Cabrera:
Miguel Cabrera is Miguel Cabrera.
Cash on leaving Alex Cobb in past 110 pitches to face Cabrera with two men on base:
That’s not going to happen every night . . . we thought Cobb was the best guy to get that ground ball.
- Jason Collette wrote about Colby Rasmus and his new, more-aggressive approach with the Rays.
- Dan Blewett, former professional pitcher, writes about pitch tunneling and about not taking the concept too far. A must read if you’re interested in sequencing.
- Of similarly high quality, but about hitting, David Laurila interviewed Matt Stairs.
- “The Zone Not Taken,” by Matt Sussman. Sometimes a pitch Frosts both the batter and the umpire.
- Baseball America rounded up the 2017 minor league drug suspensions, and the Rays have none. Sweet! Hasn’t always been that way.
- The congressional baseball game.
