The Rays- How we Hate Them (13-14)

Yesterday the Sox got overrun 9-3 by the Tampa Bay Rays. Josh Beckett (right) had a very good start, he went 6 innings, allowing only 2 runs. Unfortunately, Jeff Neimann was better, with 6 scoreless innings. The Rays are simply unbeatable this spring, they stand at an unheard of 18-7, that is a .720 winning percentage. The Red Sox are a mediocre 13-14, but today they play the Rays at 1:00 on ESPN!!!! I hope they can end their 0-3 streak against them this spring. There are only 2 good pieces of news that come from this game, Beckett did well, and Mike Lowell went 2-3, he is now .231/0/0 as it looks like Adrian Beltre .278/0/2 is going to win the third base job. That's alright though.

  1. Nice recap. I've heard that the Sox and Beckett could be close to a new deal. Beckett reportedly doesn't want to discuss it until his agent tells him there is a deal. Hopefully they lock him up! They would have one of the top rotations for the next 4-5 yrs. Consider Beckett,Lester, Lackey, Bucholz and Kelly in a few years!!! Cann't wait for Sunday night!
