Maile is meh... Good behind the plate calling a game and catching the ball, but pretty awful when swinging the bat.

No patience at the plate. Swinging early in the count. Hopefully this improves as we go.

PUT ON YOUR SAFETY GOGGLES, KIDS, BECAUSE WE'RE GOING TO TEACH THESE FOOLS ABOUT THE CORIOLIS EFFECT.



The Coriolis effect has a negligible effect on a pitched baseball but stay with me here folks.

Only concern i have about Thornton so far, already at 66 pitches and it's only the 4th inning.

Can someone tell our hitters that Matt Moore doesn't play for the Rays anymore?

We're trying to get to the third time through the order as quickly as possible.

Not sure if this series is good pitching or complete and utter offensive futility.

That double play attempt by Gurriel was just awful. Tabler made a good point about his propensity to try and turn it over the top of the base runner rather than adjust his position to clear a better throwing lane. He has a long ways to go defensively.

We may never score again!

“We could have gone forever. (Raptors management) kept knocking on the door and I was like, ‘A couple more minutes.’ Because we were really into it."
