I like Soler too but if we get a young arm i would be ok letting him go. I would like Carrasco for Soler not Alex Cobb
I liked Yeldon > Cobb, but wasn't a big fan of either.
Abdullah and Duke were better than Yeldon imho. Itl JAX couldve snagged Cobb later on.
not the best but this was a favorite: Yankees walkoff by Chris Young after near no-hitter by Alex Cobb.
Is that because a starter is a bigger need for them? Maybe Alex Cobb for Blackmon instead?
Alex Cobb for Dickerson straight up is a fair swap..both coming off injuries. Cobb is a dominant sinker ball pitcher, perfect fit for Coors
I'd cry for Alex Cobb if he gets sent to Colorado.

Alright ladies and gentlemen this is how the trade went... The 2014 trade deadline has been capped off by a three-team blockbuster involving a former Cy Young Award winner. Here are the details, courtesy of our own Jon Heyman: - Tigers get LHP David Price. - Mariners get OF Austin Jackson. - Rays get LHP Drew Smyly, IF Nick Franklin and minor-league SS Willy Adames. There could still be other pieces involved in the trade, though Heyman says Austin and Franklin is Seattle's only involvement. The 28-year-old Price, who long ago established himself as one of the best starting pitchers in all of baseball, has this season pitched to a 3.11 ERA (121 ERA+) in an MLB-leading 23 starts, and he's also logged a stellar K/BB ratio of 8.22. For his career, the former top overall pick has a 122 ERA+ and 3.45 K/BB ratio across parts of seven big-league seasons. Price, a four-time All-Star, won the AL Cy Young award in 2012 and finished second in the balloting in 2010. The lefty Price is owed the balance of a $14-million ...

matter of fact I trail you by half a point in Upper Deck Lg 9. Thanks for nothing Alex Cobb.
mass of clubs bunched together around the .500 mark in the American League this year means that even 40 percent of the season schedule is not nearly enough to draw many meaningful conclusions out of what we've seen so far. The Tampa Bay Rays, though, are an exception. Saddled with a 24-42 record, the Rays are 15 games back in the AL East, 11 games (and nine teams) away from the second Wild Card, with a minus-55 run differential that is tied for the worst in the Majors. They give even the most optimistic of souls little reason to believe they're about to turn things around. And I should know: I was the optimistic soul who picked them to win the World Series. Oops. In my defense, that was before Matt Moore and Alex Cobb joined Jeremy Hellickson on the disabled list, ravaging what looked to be an all-world rotation. That was before new closer Grant Balfourposted a 6.46 ERA and got ousted from the role. That was before Evan Longoria and Wil Myersgot off to sluggish starts, and before Myers and his ominous .66 ...
6/6 THE DAILY FANTASY BASEBALL REPORT By Tony DeMarco (Baseball Expert) At no time through the first two-plus months of this season have there been as many streaking teams. No fewer than seven are in the midst of consecutive-game streaks of at least five games -- some positive, and some not-so-positive (ahem, Rays). So let's concentrate on them: Tampa Bay Rays -- Streak: 10 Losses The last time the Rays won a game, Joe Maddon's hair hadn't gone all Sparky Anderson yet. Just kidding, but it has been awhile -- May 26 to be exact. The Rays sit at 23-38, 14 games behind the Blue Jays in the AL East -- and get this, three games worse than the Houston Astros for the AL's worst record. Wha happened? In a nutshell, a middling offense hasn't been able to compensate for injuries to SPs Alex Cobb (he's back now), Matt Moore and Jeremy Hellickson; David Price has picked a really bad time to drop from the elite ranks; and the bullpen has suffered from overuse. And since we're in the midst of the draft, it must be ment ...

Walt Disney Collectibles and Gifts, Disney Figurin
Cincinnati, OH ( - Alex Cobb spun seven scoreless innings to guide the Tampa Bay Rays to a 1-0 win over the Cincinnati Reds in the middle test of a three-game set at Great American Ball Park.Cobb (1-1) scattered four hits and fanned five to earn his first win of the season. Cobb hasn't allowed a run over his last 15 innings.James Loney provided the game's lone run with a leadoff homer in the second inning to help the Rays win for the third time in four games.Grant Balfour put the potential game-tying run on in the ninth, but got a game-ending double-play to nail down his fourth save of the season.Tampa Bay has scored just nine runs over its last six games.Alfredo Simon (1-1) was the hard-luck loser, allowing Loney's homer among five hits over eight innings. He struck out four and walked just one in the setback.Cincinnati went 1-for-5 with runners in scoring position, and is just 1-for-11 with RISP over its last two games."There are going to be times this year when we're clicking and our ...

Too bad!!! Alex Cobb out pitches Yu Darvish but the Rays lose. At least they took the series! Off to KC!!
there is a very good game occurring right now between the Texas Rangers and the Tampa Bay Rays... no score, bottom of the 7th. It's a classic pitchers duel... Yu Darvish is pitching for Texas, Alex Cobb for Tampa, both still pitching.

Monday, in David Price went the distance in sending the Rays, to Cleveland for the next challenge. Wednesday, in the AL Game, Alex Cobb's pitching and a homer by Delmon Young and a double by Desmond Jennings, enabled the Rays to beat the Now Tampa has reached series play and open up again on the road. Two seasons ago, the were beleaguered by a scandal which sounds like a Ludacris album. Chicken and beer were rumored to be ate and drank by players, during a historic collapse in the AL Wild Card chase in 2011. Terry Francona was let go and the team was overhauled. Last season, was a lost year under Bobby Valentine and he was let go of in favor of former pitching coach, John Farrell. Fast forward to the present and now the Bo Sox are the best team in the majors and back in the playoffs, hoping to recapture the championship glory from ...
A breakdown of the Red Sox against the Rays: STARTING PITCHERS Red Sox: Jon Lester, John Lackey, Clay Buchholz, Jake Peavy. Rays: David Price, Matt Moore, Alex Cobb, Chris Archer. Edge: Rays. The Red Sox have experience, the Rays youth. Price had a 2.48 ERA in five starts against the Red Sox, better than Lester's 4.32 in four starts against the Rays. That was skewed by one bad start, however. Moore had a shutout against the Sox on July 22. Lackey was better in the first half than the second but is strong at Fenway. Buchholz's start in Game 3 could be the difference. If the teams split the first two games, the Sox will need Buchholz to pitch like the All-Star he was in April, May and June at Tropicana Field in Game 3. He has thrown 13 shutout innings against the Rays this season. PRIMARY RELIEVERS Red Sox: Koji Uehjara, Junichi Tazawa, Craig Breslow, Ryan Dempster. Rays: Fernando Rodney, Joel Peralta, Jake McGee, James Wright. Edge: Red Sox by a lot. Joe Maddon doesn't trust his bullpen, he showed that in ...

Alex Cobb and three relievers stifled the Indians and Delmon Young homered in the third inning, as the Rays...
Rays Win!!! 4-0 The Rays have won essentially their 3rd consecutive elimination game by downing the Cleveland Indians, in Cleveland, in the American League Wild Card Playoff Game. Ray’s starter Alex Cobb led the way with a hard fought victory, shutting out the Indians by pitching in and out of trouble for 6 2/3 innings. Peralta, who relieved Cobb, got Swisher on a huge strikeout stranding 2 runners in scoring position in the bottom of the 7th inning. The rested bullpen, thanks in part to David Price’s gem against Texas, closed the door to finish the game, as Rodney got the final 3 outs in a non-save situation. Delmon Young started the scoring when he launched the Rays first hit for a solo homerun, in the 3rd inning, giving the good guys a lead they would not relinquish. The big hit came when Desmond Jennings hit a double with 2 outs to drive in 2 runs, in the top of the 4th inning, which gave the Rays a 3-0 lead and silenced the raucous Cleveland crowd at the same time. The Rays would add another ...
If you look at Alex Cobb's hat, you can see a few of those infamous midges...wonder if it will turn into another Joba Chamberlain fiasco..
Playoff chase: AL wild-card race tangled ESPN: September 22, 2013 The AL wild-card race is still jumbled after the top contenders all won. In the NL Central, St. Louis is holding off the Pirates and Reds. A quick look at baseball's playoff picture: TANGLED TEAMS: Alex Cobb's win kept Tampa Bay in the AL wild-card lead, a half-game ahead of Cleveland. Texas is another half-game behind, with the Yankees trailing the Indians by three games. CENTRAL CASTING: The division-leading Cardinals seem content to let Pittsburgh and Cincinnati duel for the two NL wild-card spots. The Pirates are two games back, the Reds are three out. In a key matchup Sunday at PNC Park, Jeff Locke (10-6, 3.27 ERA) starts for the Bucs against Bronson Arroyo (13-11, 3.56). MAGIC MATH: Oakland, Atlanta and Detroit can all clinch division titles Sunday. Miguel Cabrera and the Tigers cut their magic number to win the AL Central to two, rallying for six runs in the bottom of the ninth inning and then beating the White Sox in the 12th Saturd ...
Tampa Bay Rays playing the Texas Rangers at home at the Trop and they take the first game of a four game series beating the Rangers 6-2! That was Rays baseball! Great starting pitching from Alex Cobb (8 IP 6 H 2 ER 1 BB 10 K's), fantastic defense and outstanding plays made by the infielders and making catches by the outfielders, and the offense managed to wake up and knock out 12 hits (the 1-6 hitters go 11 for 24 knocking in five RBIs)! Wil Myers had a great night going 2 for 4 with a double, home run and three RBIs (almost had three home runs tonight). Everybody contributed well and they beat the former Ray Matt Garza. Nice way to kick off the homestand!
Alex Cobb gets David Ross to ground into double play to end top of 2nd. Scoreless heading to bottom half.
I have so much respect for Alex Cobb
I enjoy Alex Cobb making an unfathomably stupid decision to fuel a huge inning too.
