That's a very topical way to start an off topic thread.

Just wondering what people on here think about the Rays's field situation. Who else thinks that if they move to Tampa (somewhere around Dale Mabry), would go a long way to solving their attendance problems? Honestly it's a far drive, especially during rush hour, to get to a game where they currently are from Tampa, and I think a lot more people would go if it was more accesible. Not that I think they're leaving the Trop anytime soon-just curious on everyone else's opinion.

Tampa's a good town for baseball, but people aren't going to drive that long, to get to a crappy area of St. Pete, to a crappy stadium to watch 1/81 games on a consistent basis.

Bucs trade Kellen Winslow to Seattle for 2013 draft pick undisclosed.....sign former Colts TE Dallas Clark. (per NFL.com)

It would be a start. Better sightlines, better seating, better amenities, and better chances at corporate sponsorship which is huge. They'd be able to add significant amounts of sale-worthy real estate there in the stadium.

That and putting more than 19% of people within a 30 minute drive is always a massive help.

Good, hes **** and so is his attitude.

Clark is an interesting reclamation project with a chance to get Stocker regular playing time and see what hes got.

Clark has a good shot at being a real good addition for the Bucs, and a 3rd rounder isn't bad.

Yeah, i'm really not upset with the move at all.

The Tampa Bay Rays are planning on holding a Turn Back the Clock game where they will wear the uniforms of the 1979 Tampa Bay Rays.

What’s that you say? There were no Rays in 1979? Well, you’d be right, and the Rays have created “faux-back” uniforms as if they did exist in 1979.

The uniforms include most of the classic elements of the uniforms of the era:

the cap with the alternate coloured front-panel
the pullover jersey with sleeves in another colour from the base
thick sleeve trim striping
and some good old-fashioned powder-blue



The logo and jersey script is not the same as the current 2012 Rays looks, it’s all been re-created to look as if it was designed in the ’70s.

Unfortunately they did not go with elastic waist-band on the pants, but really that’s the only thing they missed in this near-perfect set.

So Davy Johnson is a ********* and Joel Peralta is (allegedly) a dumbass. Did we learn anything else from last night's game?

They should just keep those. Better than the bland uniforms they wear now.

Doctor Drej 06-30-2012 03:09 PM

Remind me of the old Mariners uniforms.

snowden 06-30-2012 05:23 PM

They'd look better with more yellow accents on the sleeves/socks/belt. It's a very cool concept that I'd like more teams to try out.

Still All In 06-30-2012 07:41 PM

Its kinda strange in action.

TBLHoser 07-14-2012 10:00 PM

I really, really don't understand Arena Football anymore. Don't get Ewart as coach and why do they even say the word de-fense???? It does NOT exist!
78 - 77 ???? C'mon....

Like the old Storm uniforms too....the new ones are dreadful. Now I can see why they can't get quality players..that and the pay stinks.

Doctor Drej 07-15-2012 01:38 PM

So I am watching the Rays game and Ican't help but wonder if Beckett knows he's allowed to throw more than 1 pitch per 5 minutes..

Throw the ****ing ball man, Christ...

Of the following, which is the most stressful:

A. Taking a college class on a subject that makes your mind explode
B. Loss of your job and the ensuing inability to find work elsewhere
C. The love of your life leaving you for whatever reason
D. Being so close to something great, yet somehow losing it all right at the end
E. Knowing that Derek Shelton is still employed by anybody

The answer:
Spoil:
E by far. A, B, C, and D combined can't hold a candle to E.

snowden 07-15-2012 07:36 PM

Maddon is too loyal. Wish they'd fire Shelton. No doubt you'd see an instant increase in runs and average.

Doctor Drej 07-15-2012 07:52 PM

Its the same **** that went on with the Indians when he was there. Like carbon ****ing copy.

I am an Indians fan. Replace Maddon with Wedge, and you know what my pain was a few short years ago.

I don't know what your count is, but in my eyes, the Indians had like three significant hitting slumps during Shelton's tenure that I can think of. The ONLY reason the Indians were a game away from the World Series in 2007 was that Asdrubal Cabrera was a rookie who was just swinging away and playing the game on instinct, and somehow it sparked the others, who were all in simultaneous hitting slumps. If they don't bring up Cabrera in 2007, the Indians don't even make the playoffs. Of course, Cabrera's hitting game went kaput the next year once Derek Shelton got in his head and messed him over.

Seriously, when I heard Shelton got hired in Tampa Bay, I felt sympathetic for every Rays fan. I was glad he was out of Cleveland, but I wouldn't trust Shelton to coach a tee-ball team. I would not wish this man on my worst enemy's favorite team. Maddon needs to get with it and fire him or it's only going to get worse. Trust me, as an Indians fan, I know, and trust me, it WILL get worse.

Doctor Drej 07-16-2012 10:13 AM

Yeah, 2007 still pisses me off. That was our year. Too bad the hitting couldn't provide **** for the pitching in the playoffs. Don't forget Lofton too, it was him and Cabrera offensively and that was it during the playoffs.

Hockeyfan02 07-16-2012 11:01 AM

Not a big fan of Shelton but this isn't exactly a murderous row of hitters either. Without Longoria and Joyce this team was going to struggle to score runs. This team for the last few years has been preaching pitching and defense because they don't have the horses to keep up with the Red Sox and Yankees offensively. With a new hitting coach there might be a slight improvement but they aren't going to be a high scoring team. It's not like the Angels who had one of the best hitters of all time come back to normal and an elite prospect to call up once they fired their hitting coach. They just don't have the depth to overcome the injuries they've had this year. The Rays have done a great job of developing pitchers but the same can't be said for players at the plate.

No one says the Rays will slug 10 homers a game with a new hitting coach but ANY potential that MIGHT be there is supressed as long as Shelton is around.

Felonious Python 07-24-2012 05:46 AM

Penn State losing 13 years of wins is a bit silly. I don't see how it means anything.

I guess I'm not surprised. Penn acted like nothing was happening, the NCAA then acts like those years didn't exist either. That's the MO of schools. Pretend it doesn't exist in order to 'keep their good reputation'.

If that had been a hockey team involved, first, it wouldn't have gotten the media coverage, but second, I would be the first to call for the school to be burnt to the ground.

And then salt worked into the dirt so nothing grows there for several years.

But the records remain to serve as a warning.
