Beating teams that need to be beat

Kid-K needs to be better than today's game. (AP)

Yes we still write post. Yes we still believe in this team. Yes we hate the fact that the Rays lose to teams that they should destroy.

I understand Joe Maddon’s philosophy behind the 30 minutes after the game to reflect on the performance. I am just trying to figure out during which bad loss you change that motive and try to figure out what the hell is going on.

Only James Shields can take a no-hitter in the 8th just to lose. Jeff Niemann can out-pitch Felix Hernandez for 6 innings just to lose. Only the Rays can get NO-HIT by Mark Buehrle.

I don’t know if there has been an offense in the history of baseball that has been as bi-polar as the Rays has been this season. Never have I seen a team put up as many 10 run games as the Rays have to basically be shut down the next day.

You think Buehrle’s no-no would of woken up this team and make them realize that they need to change what they do. The way you make the playoffs is by being a solid team day in and day out. Someone needs to slap the Rays in the face and tell them that.
