Last week’s Rays Confidence Graph results.

Below you will see two polls that ask about your confidence in the Tampa Bay Rays. Please take a moment to answer each question. We will present these same polls every Monday. The results will be presented in graphical form on Wednesday, and will be displayed permanently in the sidebar. The goal of the Confidence Graph is to get a feeling of how Rays fans feel about the team and the franchise and track how that level of confidence changes through time. Thanks!

Raysiverse events of the past week that could impact confidence levels…

    Any word on Bartlett's return?

  2. The Professor says:

    interesting. they say he is not ready yet, but they still think he will be back during this homestand which ends on Wednesday. So tomorrow? wednesday? i am guessing if it is not tomorrow, then it will actually be thursday in KC. Wednesday's game is an early game and and little chance for Bartlett to get any pregame work in.

    From Lancaster's blog at

    "In other pregame news, Jason Bartlett looked fine going through running and sliding drills. He estimated he’s at about 80 percent right now, but it sounds like the plan is to activate him Thursday as the Rays open a seven-game road trip.

    I expect the corresponding move will be Ben Zobrist going down, but there is a potential complication: the Rays aren’t sure whether they can just roll Bartlett back out there every day at short as he had done earlier. If he isn’t quite ready to do that, they may have to make another move to get him back on the roster, which could be dicey. If he is, Evan Longoria would again become the backup shortstop. We’ll see in a couple of days.
