We mentioned this in the Webtopia yesterday. And we are a little surprised that some are making a big deal out of it.
When asked about the differences between the Red Sox and the Rays, Carl Crawford had this to say:
It’s all baseball. But it’s a little different. It’s more a younger team [in Tampa], so it was more like party central all the time. [In Boston] it’s a little more calmer, a little more conservative. That’s probably the biggest difference.
People are apparently focusing on the “party central” part of the quote and ignoring the rest of it. The Rays are YOUNGER. That means fewer wives. That means fewer kids. That means more free time. And that means more PARTYING.
Get over it.
