As we noted earlier, the Devil Rays claimed Chris Snelling and his paper knees off of waivers from the Oakland A’s. If you visit Snelling’s player profile page on MLB.com you will see that they have already photoshopped Snelling with a Rays cap and jersey.
Of course, he is now seen in a cap and jersey, that you know, he will never actually wear.
Makes one wonder how the Rays front office would handle the situation if they were to acquire a big-name player before the November 8 “celebration” unveiling the new uniforms. Would they hold a press conference and give the new player a green cap and jersey with his name on it?
