If you have been hanging around these parts for a while, you know that the model for this site is to tell you what the Rays have done, what they are doing and what they will do, and why. Unlike most team blogs, we do not very often tell you what the Tampa Bay Rays should do. However, for the next 12 days we will step away from the standard, and we present to you 12 “presents” the Tampa Bay Rays should give to their fans.
On the eleventh day of Raysmas, the Tampa Bay Rays gave to us, ELEVEN walk-off wins…
Why? Because they are fun. In 2007 the Tampa Bay Devil Rays won 10 games in walk-off fashion (most were of the extra-inning game at home variety). In 2008 we want at least one more because we are greedy.
On the eleventh day of Raysmas, all Rays fans want is ELEVEN walk-off wins, and…
