Chalk up another Steve Carlton Syndrome Loss

In a 162-game season, you're going to have games like today.  Games that are on the West Coast. Games against a rather mediocre team.  Game that aren't on TV.  And games that turn into yet another disappointing loss.  It's April 26th and the defending AL Champions are still in the cellar.

I'm still withholding my panic button until the next home stand.  Last year, game 20 was the one they turned it around.  And right now, they're keeping close to .500 for the road trip.  That's acceptable as long as they can turn it around at home next week against a white hot Red Sox team.

Of course, I would be remiss if I didn't mention the fact that the Rays fell victim once again to the Steve Carlton syndrome and lost to another lefty.  This lefty was the greatness that is Dallas Braden. You can talk all you want about Garza's walks and the weak offense. But, it still seems the Rays can't do anything against lefties. Matty from St. Pete even told me that if he getting ready to play the Rays he would make sure they get every lefty in the organization.

Steve Carlton... you win again! Even if you don't have any comment.
