Matt Moore Defends Rays Bullpen

Matt Moore worked the first 6 innings and giving up 1R/ER on 5 hits while striking out 2 and walking 2. He made 104 pitches and 66 were for strikes. After the game he was asked about the bullpen issues and chose to credit the opposition saying “those guys have been doing it their entire career, their tough outs, this is the major leagues their good too.”  When asked if Fernando Rodney’s blown saves get in his head he responded by saying “if he’s thinking about what I’m doing it’s probably not going to be too good on his job and same thing if I’m thinking about his job its not going to reflect too positively on me.”

I am a fan of all sports but am most passionate about baseball. From the fanatical to analytical, nothing about the game escapes me. Being born and raised in Northeast Ohio I'm very familiar with the heartache and pain that sports can bring and hope that I bring some understanding of the other side to my coverage. I will focus mostly on baseball but also cover the Tampa Bay Lightning, one of the most electric franchises in all of sports. Always willing to converse about any sport and have only one rule and that is be respectful at all times.
