The Rays Confidence Graph will appear every Thursday and is a look at how much confidence Rays fans have in the Tampa Bay Rays. The graph is designed to give us a look at how our emotional bias as Rays fans fluctuates through time. The “confidence” in the team is an inexact measure of how fans feel about the team’s current strength as well as how much confidence fans have in the franchise for the next 3-4 years. Notes on this week’s agida-level can be found after the graph..

Notes on the RI Confidence Graph…

  • The most common response for “Confidence in 2009 Rays” was 8 with 26.1%.
  • The most common response for “Confidence in future of franchise” was 9 with 39.0%.
  • This is the lowest either number has been since the first week of May ’08.

    The drop-off in confidence is stunning, although I think those numbers are more realistically where expectations should've been to begin with.

  2. David says:

    Man Rays fans, if this were the NFL we'd be in trouble, but 6.9? We're 6-9 in a 162 game season. Would you rather have the Marlins record right now? With a high record like that something is bound to go wrong. Maddon said it himself he'd rather be 5-9 than 13-1(before last night's game).
