Alex Cobb was brilliant in leading the Rays past the New York Yankees by a final score of 8-3. The victory pushes the Rays record back over the .500 mark at 25-24 and the Yankees fall to 30-19.

Joe Maddon said of Cobb that “he was wonderful. After what had happened yesterday to be ablet to come back and right us likke that was outstanding. He was that good. The fastball was that good. Velocity held pretty mcuh true the entire game with movement. The changeup and split was outstanding and so was the curveball. He was really really good.”

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.
