Thu Feb 1318:08New-look Rays confident they'll be deeper, better
PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. (AP) — For a team that didn’t anticipate a lot of change after making the playoffs for the first time in six years, the Tampa Bay Rays have a lot of new faces on the roster entering spring training.Japanese slugger Yoshi Tsutsugo and trade acquisitions José Martinez, Hunter Renfroe, Manuel Margot and Randy Arozarena are among the newcomers the Rays are counting on to help a largely young team build on the success of the past two seasons.Key departures include catcher Travis d’Arnaud, closer Emilio Pagán and outfielders Tommy Pham and Avisaíl García, however expectations remain high after improving from 90 wins two years ago to 96 and an AL wild-card berth last season.“Expectations are up, but that’s what you want,” general manager Erik Neander said.“At the end of the day, the goal is to win by one. I think we’ve done enough on the offensive side to have a different look with guys who chip in in different ways,” Neander added. “And, I think w... [More]

Fri Oct 11 201920:39Rays disappointed, not discouraged by ALDS exit
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — The Tampa Bay Rays are disappointed, though hardly discouraged.The overachieving franchise with baseball's smallest payroll returned home from losing to the Houston Astros in the AL Division Series confident that getting its first taste of postseason success since 2013 will make it stronger moving forward."We would have loved to be World Series champs, but reaching the ALDS for the first time in six years is a right step forward," defensive whiz Kevin Kiermaier said."You hate seeing it end right now, but at the same time, you think about Day 1 spring training, we accomplished most of our goals," the center fielder added. "We didn't finish where we wanted to, but at the same time ... what a fun year."After compiling the best record among major league teams failing to make the playoffs in 2018, the Rays improved from 90 to 96 victories this season to make the playoffs for the fifth time in club history. They beat Oakland in last week's wild-card game, then s... [More]
Fri Oct 11 201900:29Rays can't beat 3 aces, finally fold in ALDS vs Astros
HOUSTON (AP) — Unable to beat three aces in a row, the Tampa Bay Rays finally folded against Houston.It didn't help that starter Tyler Glasnow was sure he tipped pitches in the first inning, when the Astros scored four fast runs.With baseball's most inexpensive roster, the young Rays tried all they could to avoid elimination again Thursday night. They had an infielder in the lineup who barely played in the past month, went to their bullpen early to bring in their own Cy Young Award winner and kept changing pitchers the same way they did throughout the playoffs.In the end, they still couldn't win three straight AL Division Series games against a trio of Astros arms with a combined salary of $66 million — about the same as the entire Tampa Bay payroll.Gerrit Cole struck out 10 more Rays in eight innings, following his 15-strikeout performance in Game 2, and Houston won 6-1 in the decisive Game 5 to end Tampa Bay's outstanding season and advance to a third consecutive AL Championship ...

That means for the second straight year, Clayton Kershaw won’t be opening the postseason for LA.A year ago, the Dodgers went with Hyun-Jin Ryu against Atlanta, ending Kershaw’s streak of six consecutive playoff appearances starting Game 1. “Around here I don’t know if one, two or three really matters,” Buehler said. “The order’s a little bit less significant than people want to make it out to be.”LET’S GET IT STARTEDThe first Division Series game of 2019 features Paul Goldschmidt and the St. Louis Cardinals facing the NL East champion Braves in Atlanta, where Hall of Famer Chipper Jones will throw out the first pitch.
