    We have long championed the cause that Evan Longoria is the most valuable player in baseball. Maybe he doesn’t have the highest WAR and he is yet to win an MVP.

    We apologize to you if we don’t seem real eager to jump into a forced awkward intimate situation that people like to call promoting a product. We don’t like the feeling. You’re sitting there, you’re wondering should we do it, what will our readers think, do we have food on […]

    It is not easy being a Rays fan and taking the constant pounding and jabbing from fans of other teams. But before watching the video below, we had never been more embarassed to be a Rays fan. Nothing says street cred like a rap video that includes the lyrics, “we […]

    One thing Raysheads will always be able to count on is that contract or no, we will not bow down to any sponsor. Maybe we’re wrong on this one, but for us, the beast doesn’t include selling out. It’s like people only do these things because they can get paid. […]
