Looks like the Royals are getting good contact off Hellickson. Could be another win tonight! :evil:

This is going to be a tough series. The Rays have been playing very well in the second half.

On an unrelated note, I really like the camera angle in this park. You get a much better view of the strike zone.

I would'nt count on it, the Rays have been on fire as of late (excluding the no no of course)

Kind of expect the Royals to go out and win every night now. Is that wrong?

Wouldn't an epic comeback to secure a wildcard spot be just what the doctor ordered for all of us long suffering Royals fans?

Honest question: why is it that nobody goes to Rays games? They've put a good team on the field pretty routinely for at least the last few years, and the park seems nice enough. You hardly EVER see stands this empty.

I think it's a combination of reasons.

1. The Trop is a shithole.

2. It's located in downtown St. Pete instead of Tampa where the Bucs and Lightning reside.

3. Many people who live here aren't from here. People from New York, Boston, Chicago, Ohio aren't going to dump their teams. Attendance is high whenever the Yanks or Sox come to town.

That's too bad. I like the Rays for proving that the small-market model can have success.

Are they 5-1 in their last six against playoff contending teams? We are.

This strikezone is so wide for Hellickson. I think Salvy's height is a problem for some of these umps.

That play took three excellent individual defensive efforts. Gordon with the ridiculous barehand and throw, Escobar with the ridiculous turn and throw and Salvy with the great block and tag.

Not to be obnoxious, but the Rays have been a pretty good team to watch tonight. If the Royals ever become a perennial contender in MLB, this is what they'll look like. The Royals are closer now than they have been in recent history, but it's the little things that matter.

Nightfyre
08-20-2012, 07:06 PM
I think the Royals will be better offensively in power and average but have to compensate for some failed/delayed pitching prospects by pursuing some in free agency.

It's Dayton Moores boneheaded trades that will do the Royals in. Before Melky got busted that was looking as bad as Cone for Hearn.
