The season is now two weeks old. The Rays have performed about the way I had hoped. Going into tonight’s game their record stands at 4 wins and 6 losses. The Rays have played an exciting brand of baseball. The hitting and starting pitching has been pretty consistent. Al Reyes has so far done the job as the closer, with 3 saves. The middle inning relievers have for the most part not done their job. It appears that Rudy Lugo need to be sent to the minors and one of the young pitchers brought up and given a chance. Carl Crawford and Rocco Baldelli haven’t started hitting yet. Once they get going, the Rays should be a force on offense. Last night the Rays received 8 strong innings from Scott Kazmir and Al Reyes came in to get his third save. It would be a confidence boost for the team to stay close to the 500 mark through the first couple of months.
