Rays Links

  • Mark Topkin wrote about Nick Ciuffo’s journey from a failed drug test to the majors.
  • Topkin also outlined what the Rays need to do to make the playoffs, comparing this season to 2011.
  • Cliff Corcoran, over at The Athletic, wrote about the The Opener Strategy, and how it’s catching on around the league, and gave a good breakdown of it’s success, noting that the real winners have been the pitchers in the role we call here “the headliner,” but that he calls “the follower.”
  • Our vote is :fire:.
  • I, for one, have always wanted a Rays W.B. Mason truck.
  • Will Leitch wrote about potential superteams that could form out of free agents this offseason, and the Rays are on his list. So are the Orioles. I lol’d.
  • Daniel R. Epstein wrote that Malcom Nuñez, a 17-year-old playing in the Dominican Summer League, has put up the best hitting season in baseball. Why is this a “Rays Link?” Well, Nuñez narrowly beat out the wRC+ record of Oscar Hernandez, that great and storied Rays phenom.
