On this date six years ago, a biology professor that was hiding from his students during office hours on opening day of the baseball season, started a blog. That Professor had little idea what he was doing as is clearly evident in his first-ever post, a post that included a Jonny Gomes home run.

But he started to find his stride later that day when he wrote about a journalist that predicted the Devil Rays would win the World Series…in 2006! That post got a lot of play on the interwebs, and there was no looking back.

So, Happy Birthday to us!

    There may be other Rays blogs, but there's only one BEST Rays blog, and this is it. Happy Birthday!

    Congrats Cork. I wasn't looking for a Rays blog until 2008. Then I found you and have been a constant happy visitor ever since.
