Tampa Bay Rays Lose a Tough One...to Matt Wieters

Sean HeyboerContributor ISeptember 17, 2009

The anointed one finally showed us why he has celebrity status in Baltimore already.

Not only did the Rays lose again last night, making it 147 losses in their last 148 games it seems like, but they were beaten by one player and one player only. Matt Wieters singlehandedly dismantled the Rays.

I hate that I have to continuously write about how disappointed I am with this team right now, but what else is there to talk about? They scored two runs. Matt Wieters scored three himself. There is no other way to put it.

To add insult to injury, Wieters caught Carl Crawford stealing twice. How is that even possible? How is any of this possible?

Russ Springer gave up the bomb to Wieters in the ninth after walking Luke Scott. That sound familiar to you at all? I dare you to name one Rays reliever who hasn't given up a big run late in the game in the past two weeks. 

I'm sick to my stomach. I feel like I'm watching the Durham Bulls. Hell, I'd rather be watching the Durham Bulls.

I have nothing else to say. I'm going to try and not drive off a cliff today.
