guy, your teams television ratings are consistently some of the lowest in the whole league. And YES, teams do make money off merchandise. Teams like the Red Sox and Yankees.. that is why the MLB instituted revenue sharing so bum a.ss organizations like the Rays could survive.




My apologies. I didn't know I was arguing with a mentally disabled individual.
o really? the lowest ratings? then why last series was the highest rated playoff series so far on tv? and they rays are up 99 percent this year that last in nationaL tv ratings so do research b4 u make a guess pleasse

Well Pedroia did struggle last year in the ALDS so I'm not overly concerned. I think that double off the wall will help a little with his confidence going into the series.

Also, I'm not so sure Beckett isn't healthy, just more rusty than anything cause he hasn't had many starts down the stretch. I know Francona wouldn't do anything to put any of his players at risk i.e. taking Lowell off the roster. I mean we did the thing with Schilling but I think that was more Schill than anything.
Pedroia is gonna get his off of Shields.

Can't wait until these ignorant Tampa fu*ks disappear again.

Can't wait until you fake a.ss fans go. Can't wait to see Joe Maddon's face when Youk bombs one in the 9th to take the series lead.

Something new for the ALCS; a look at the umpires and their tendencies. Unfortunately I don't have Pitchf/x data for each of them and cannot tell you whether the strike percentages are due to great pitching or simply a tight or loose zone, but what can you do at this point?

Tim McClelland - 42.7% strikes (79th of 83 umpires)
Derryl Cousins - 43.5% strikes (70th of 83 umpires)
Alfonso Marquez - 43.9% strikes (54th of 83 umpires)
Brian Gorman - 45.3% strikes (13th of 83 umpires)
Brian O'Nora - 44.8% strikes (21st of 83 umpires)
Sam Holbrook - 43.8% strikes (61st of 83 umpires)

Only ~2.5 percent separates the top of the pack from the very back. In fact there's only a standard deviation of 0.012 throughout the list. Here's a look at the BB9 and SO9 ratios:

McClelland - 4 BB9 6.18 SO9
Cousins - 3.7 BB9 6.39 SO9
Marquez - 4 BB9 6.68 SO9
Gorman - 2.95 BB9 6.95 SO9
O'Nora - 3.03 BB9 6.84 SO9
Holbrook - 3.54 BB9 6.69 SO9

These numbers really don't mean a lot. Some umpires might have gotten a better cut of aces than others and some simply had to call the games with a ton of walks. The Rays have some history with McClelland (see: Sammy Sosa corked bat) and Cousins (see: Kazmir explodes) the other names don't jump out as having anything big with the Rays. In other words: no Jerry Meals.
