Derek Jeter hit by pitch and benches clear: What Yankees' 6-1 loss to Rays means

It's odd enough that the Yankees don't have a chance at October baseball. It was even weirder how their 6-1 loss to the Rays went down at the Tropicana Field.

Rays' future as depressing as Rays' present

And so the saddest summer of them all has come to this: In their own park, the Rays have been turned into extras. They sit on the fringes of the moment, out of the spotlight, applauding another team's star.

New York Yankees

The New York Yankees will try to reverse a recent run-scoring funk and resume their pursuit of an American League postseason berth when they face the Tampa Bay Rays in game two of a three-game series on Tuesday night at Tropicana Field. The Yankees haven't missed the playoffs in consecutive seasons since 1992 and 1993, but they've dropped four of their last five games to fall six games behind Kansas City for the second of two AL wild card playoff berths.

The Battle Atop the 2015 Rays Rotation Depth

Looking forward to 2015 -- something I was hoping to delay at least six more weeks -- is unavoidable with the recent, fantastic start by Nate Karns . Ian covered his majestic power-curve over the weekend, and came away noting it might be the best pitch among all of the arms in the Rays system -- no disrespect to Clockhands McGee.

Rays probably won't be tearing down roster

Rays owner Stuart Sternberg, left, and Manager Joe Maddon, right, laugh as Cecil Fielder takes the lineup to the umpires before the Rays spring training game against the Twins at Charlotte Sports Park Monday in Port Charlotte, FL. Principal owner Stuart Sternberg saying last week, in response to a question, that the payroll is headed down for 2015 is hardly a surprise after the Rays jumped from $62 million to a franchise-record $80 million, which he termed "an enormous aberration."

Grant Balfour delivers on Maddon save chance

RHP Grant Balfour had saved a big-league game 83 times before, but Friday was special in its own way. Having lost the closer's job after a brutal first two months, Balfour hadn't even been in a ninth-inning save situation since July 1. But with LHP Jake McGee working the eighth inning against the Blues Jays because it looked to be the tougher assignment, and with RHP Brad Boxberger unavailable, Balfour got the call and made the most of it, retiring Edwin Encarnacion on a foul pop, then striking out Adam Lind and Dioner Navarro to seal a 1-0 win.

Owner Stuart Sternberg expects Rays payroll to drop

Sternberg said the 2015 payroll is "clearly going to be lower" than this year's franchise-record $80 million, and he pointed out - albeit a small sample size - that they have had the most success when they have spent least. "We've run payroll into the and gotten into the World Series and well into the playoffs, and our two highest payrolls a the years we stepped it up were 2009 and 2014, and those are the only two years we haven't played significant September baseball," Sternberg said.
