Playing A Little Pepper

The biggest news of the day? Wil Myers hasn’t combed his hair since the start of the season…The Rays have won 9 straight series. A win tonight (ELIAS considers this a 1-game series) would make it 10 straight. The Rays are 0-6 all-time in 1-game series…The Rays are 21-4 in their last 25 games. In last 10 years, only one AL club had a better record over 25 games. The 2004 Red Sox went 22-3 at one point…The Rays’ .826 winning percentage in July (19-4) is the best in MLB since the 1941 when the Yankees went 25-4 (.862).

    I’d be curious to see the Rays 1-4 starters’ July numbers compared to any other group’s numbers over a one month period in the history of baseball.

    Re: Myers hair: Well, let’s just hope he does ocassionally wash it. Did he give any explanation? Religious reasons? good luck charm?
