This screengrab came in the 4th inning. It was the first batter after Gabe Gross had just given the Rays a 10-0 lead. Reid Brignac fouled a ball down the right field line…

Yes, that is a guy wearing a retro #33 Jose Canseco “Devil Rays” jersey, showing up on TV. The Indians would go on to score 11 straight runs following this moment in what can only be termed a “Devil Raysian” performance.

Where is Troy Percival to scream at that fan?

    Confession time – I still own and wear a Greg Vaughn jersey from his days on the team. I thought about doing some kind of ceremonial purge at the start of last season when the new name, unis, etc. came in. But I decided instead to keep it as a “those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it” kind of thing.

    14 straight loses in Cleveland… when does this become a legitimate curse?

    I have a Wilson Alvarez inaugural season jersey. I wore it recently to prove to these ridiculous Cardinals fans in St Louis that I am not a bandwagoner.

    Cork, with all due respect, I was going to call you out for jinxing the team by ending your “Devil Rays” protest. The way you did it, it gave me the jinxy creeps because it was like you were saying, “well, they’re back over .500 so it’s up and up from here.” Since you ended your protest, they’ve lost 2 games they should have won, and Aki’s out for the season.

    PUT THE PROTEST BACK ON!!! ;p
